This album was provided in digital format in exchange for an honest review but that does not influence my opinion at all.

I cannot express enough how absorbing and easy to love these songs are, and I feel my review may not truly interpret the greatness of the album. But go on this journey with me as I give you a break down of my reaction to every single track: Continue reading “Album Review: ‘One’ by Sarah Miles”
I’ve come across unsettling comments in regards to Wild Belle‘s music video for Keep You, which depicts a little boy having a relationship with grown women. I mean, I get it but then there are some very disturbed and even classified the video as encouraging pedophilia.

Anyways, I like the song and the video for its location. Check it out if you haven’t yet and tell us what you think about the concept. Continue reading “Wild Belle’s “Keep You””
