Vance Joy, Portugal. The Man play Radio 104.5 Summer Block Party
Over the summer, Philly’s Radio 104.5 has been hosting its fair share of Summer Block Party concert events. The best part about these concerts is that they are all completely free. Although they are free, you must still go online and claim a ticket before they run out, which can be a pain and difficult to retrieve. That being said, the most recent Block Party was the first one I attended this summer, and it did not disappoint.

However, this was not the case for me when attending RFA’s recent show at PhilaMOCA.

Paramore changes aesthetic for new LP, ‘After Laughter’
After four long years without releasing an album, Paramore is back with their fifth full-length album, “After Laughter.” The band is said to have gone through difficult times the past few years which almost tore them apart completely, leaving many fans surprised that they were releasing new material.

Clean Bandit, Zara Larsson play sold out show at UT
Though Clean Bandit puts out great music, the fact that they had a very big following here in the United States was surprising. Though they have had a couple radio hits, it didn’t seem likely that they had enough name recognition to sell out a show here. As it turns out, they absolutely did.

Alexandra Savior releases strikingly beautiful debut
I haven’t been this impressed by an artist’s debut album in a while. When I first heard Alexandra Savior’s single “Mirage,” I fell in love with the track. After that, I decided I should keep tabs on her. I was delighted to find out that she would be releasing her debut album, “Belladonna of Sadness,” April 7 through Columbia Records.

Synth-pop act MUNA emerges with delightful debut
American girl band MUNA just dropped their debut album “About U” Feb. 3 and I’ve had it on repeat since. The group, consisting of lead vocalist and producer Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin on lead guitar and Naomi McPherson on rhythm guitar and synths, expresses a unique dark indietronica sound that is hard to beat. The band has been together since they met in 2013 at the University of Southern California, where they all attended college.
