Review: Lola Marsh – Only For A Moment

Thursday, November 7th, 2019 by Tara Howell

By: Aly Martinez

Album artwork for Lola Marsh's 'Only For A Moment'. Two people play pingpong with a solid blue background. Lola Marsh – Only For A Moment

Release: 2019

Rate: 8.7/10

RIYL: Acollective, The Backyard, Jane Bordeaux

Lola Marsh is a duo that is comprised of vocalist Yael Shoshana Cohen and multi-instrumentalist Gil Landau. They released their first EP “You’re Mine” back in 2016. Lola Marsh became very popular online and then during their live performances, and they have now played both in North America and in Europe. They released their first album “Remember Roses” in 2019 and hit 40 million streams on Spotify.

Only for A Moment is a new single released by the duo and if it could be just a taste of a new album coming. I would say this song starts off with a very chill sound, a sound that reminds of the song “Rhiannon” by Fleetwood Mac, but then takes an interesting turn and turns more upbeat. This is the perfect song to play when you’re just hanging out and want a song that will make you bop your head to the beat. If this is a sneak peek of what is to come, then I am very much looking forward to what is coming.

Review: I DON’T KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME – 1981 Extended Play

Monday, November 4th, 2019 by Tara Howell

By: Aly Martinez

I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME – 1981 Extended Play

Release: November 8, 2018

Rate: 9/10

RIYL: Ricky Montgomery, The Honeysticks, half·alive

I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME also known as iDKHOW is an American indie pop duo that features Dallon Weekes and Ryan Seaman that was formed in 2016. Dallon Weekes is a former member of the popular band Panic! At The Disco, and he worked with Seaman before in the band The Brobecks. Weekes and Seaman had a unique vision to create a band that people would have to discover on their own, by only performing at small venues they built a devout fanbase.

If I were to describe this album, I would say it is fun and futuristic. It has incredible upbeat vibes and makes you want to get up and dance. My personal favorite is Do It All the Time, this is a song that you would listen to walking through the streets feeling like you can take on anything. I truly think this is a band we have to keep an eye on.
