What We Think: Brand New Say Goodbye(?)

June 6, 2016 | By idobi Staff

Brand New has caused yet more speculation by announcing their (possible) farewell in 2018 via some merch—and quite understandably, there’ve been mixed reactions from fans, and a whole lot of confusion.

Tuesday Ten: Musician Mugshots

October 14, 2014 | By idobi Staff

While Lil Wayne has, to the best of my knowledge, spent around 70% of his career so far behind bars, you don’t need to share his level of passion for drugs and weapon possession to end up in an orange jumpsuit. In this week’s Tuesday Ten, we look at some of the other crimes that have landed musicians behind the ever-so-flattering lens of the mugshot camera.

Tuesday Ten: Musical 180’s

September 23, 2014 | By idobi Staff

Even if you’re convinced that a band changing their sound is the worst thing that’s ever happened to you, it’s perfectly natural for someone’s music to develop and shift from album to album. But every once in a while, those shifts are so dramatic that the early work ends up sounding like it was released by an entirely different band than the more recent material.

Tuesday Ten: As Heard On TV

September 16, 2014 | By idobi Staff

Losing yourself in a ten-hour marathon of your favorite tv show is always fun, but it’s even more fun when you suddenly wake from your reverie at the sounds of some unknown, perfect song emerging from the speakers. For this week’s Tuesday Ten, we asked our writers about ten songs they fell in love with after hearing them on tv.

Tuesday Ten: Songs We Didn’t Like Until We Heard Them Acoustic

September 9, 2014 | By idobi Staff

Autumn is just around the corner, and that means one thing: it’s almost time to throw on your comfiest sweater and trade in the upbeat sunny anthems you’ve been singing the past four months for something a little more chilled out. It’s always fun to return to your usual favorites, but it’s even more exciting to add something unexpected to the playlist — which is why for this week’s Tuesday Ten, we asked our writers about ten songs they didn’t like until they heard them acoustic.

Tuesday Ten: (Throw)back To School Playlist

September 2, 2014 | By idobi Staff

Let’s not beat around the bush here—learning is cool, but school is usually much less cool. Thankfully, your homework pile will never be taller than your stack of records, and the right song can help you get through even the most impossible assignments. We asked our writers to share their favorite songs from their first year of college, high school, middle school, or elementary school for a special back to school playlist in this week’s Tuesday Ten.
