Music Review: ‘m.A.A.d city’ does hip-hop justice

Brian Velez LV Life Editor Kendrick Lamar’s major label debut, “good kid, m.A.A.d city” is perfect, one of the best examples of what a hip-hop album should be. Unlike some overly long hip-hop albums that include up to 18 songs, Lamar places all songs in a delicate 12-song package – a package that does not overwhelm listeners but leaves them wanting more. The subject matter ranges from love...

Festival bucks mainstream

Christian Orozco Sports Editor If you took a drive down Union Pacific in East Los Angeles Saturday you might have heard the ruckus that was coming out of an ominous warehouse. That ruckus was F*** That Fest The weird and the creepy came out to support the underground music scene of garage rock, surf, blues, psychedelic, folk and punk. “For five bucks and this many bands I had to come out,” Ontario... 

Music Review: Wake me up when ‘¡Uno!’ ends

Katie Madden Staff Writer The Green Day boys are at it again, and by “it” I mean releasing another disappointing record that confirms they just can’t make a truly exciting and unique album anymore. “¡Uno!,” the band’s ninth studio album, comes across as an attempt of a 40-something dad, desperate to appear as cool to his punk, teenage son. Following the release of one too many family friendly...
