‘Always Never Home’

Following Syd’s first solo album, Fin, is a quick 3 track EP entitled Always Never Home. On “Moving Mountains” you’ll hear deep electro bass that’s almost reminiscent to Dead Prez’s 1999 “Hip Hop”. And she doesn’t fail to bless us with her soulful and seductive vocals. This EP is a preview to her upcoming fall…

Daniel Caesar: Freudian Review

Daniel Caesar’s debut album, ‘Freudian’, is nothing short of bliss. With features from some of the best female R&B voices in the game, this new album is one that I can find myself listening to with warm coffee and molasses studded coffee cake while watching the leaves turn colors in the early morning. The album…

Solar Eclipse Playlist

In honor of tomorrow’s solar eclipse here are some of my favorite songs about the sun and the moon to get you ready:

Mexican Lasagna

Creamy cashew cream meets spicy lasagna. Top with cheese, or don’t, you vegans. This is comfort food right here. What makes this recipe Mexican-inspired is the use of black beans and great spices like cumin and cayenne. Layer by layer you’ll find an array of flavor. This is a crowd pleaser, whether you are a…

Banana Bread

A classic. A staple. Banana bread is an American favorite. However, for me, it took three tries for me to get the loaf I wanted. Three loaves of banana bread in one week’s time! That’s a lot of dough. Check out the full recipe on Joy the Baker’s page, but just know that I used…

Plum Scones

Scones. What is a scone? According to the dictionary, a scone is “a small unsweetened or lightly sweetened biscuit-like cake.” Sweet biscuits? I’m in. To me scones always seemed so fancy; so complex to make. But when given a bag of plums that I didn’t know what to do with, I decided on turning them…

Butter & Scotch

On my layover in NYC I knew I had to stop at one place: Butter & Scotch, aka the @drunkbakers little nook that’s tucked away in Brooklyn. I didn’t care about seeing Times Square or the Statue of Liberty, I just wanted to experience the so called “bar and bakery of my dreams.” I ordered…

‘Lust For Life’

Lust For Life, Lana Del Rey’s 4th studio album debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. This follows suit to her 2014 album, Ultraviolence. Lana Del Rey has always personified the retro idea of the “American dream” and connecting it today’s young people, of which I believe makes her so appealing. The Ringer calls…

Quench Your Thursday Pt.2

It’s been a wild week: spurts of catastrophic rains, roaring temps., and trying to prep and prepare for a trip abroad. But amidst all of that, I’ve had a couple songs I’d like to share for this Thursday’s Quencher. Enjoy ’em. Indigo Svn – “Cristen’s Song” Sometimes life’s darkest moments create the best art. That’s…

Quench Your Thursday

This past week has given us strong glimpses of fall. The sun, still keeping us hot through the car window, but the wind giving way to the cooler days to come. Oh, the suspense! And oh, what a tease summer is. Now, finally getting back up to where temps are supposed to be for late…
