Five albums into their punk project dubbed The Goo Goo Dolls, John Rzeznik and Robby Takac broke through. “Name” was their first big hit, and left some fans complaining that they had gone too mainstream. One fan even sent Rzeznik a letter in 1998 that started “Dear F-----,” which, he told Guitar World, was not the first time he’d been called such an awful name.
The enigmatic cult icon Frank Ocean is finally back with some new content for the first time in a while. As he had done in the past with new singles such as “Biking,” “Chanel” and “Slide,” Ocean played his latest singles, “DHL” and “In My Room,” as the last song during his Beats1 radio show, blonded RADIO, with “DHL” being released on Oct. 19 and “In My Room” being released on Nov. 2.
This decade, Wilco’s frontman and songwriter, Jeff Tweedy, has released five albums with the band he started 25 years ago, taken time for solo projects and an album with his son, guest starred on Parks and Rec (in the fictional band Land Ho) and written a memoir released last November. And after all that, Tweedy and company released their 12th studio album, Ode to Joy, last month, his most essential work this decade.
Kanye West's latest album, Jesus Is King, was released last Friday to the tamest reception of any Kanye solo album to date. There have been fewer headlines, fewer conversations among casual rap fans and fewer tweets. People are finally taking Kanye less seriously, even as he turns his music toward the power of salvation.
"Remembering the Rockets" starts in the middle of a familiar cycle. “The cars come by your house / It’s Friday night again,” and just like that and with a denser wall of guitars than Strange Ranger has known before, they’ve baked “Leona” in a nostalgic haze.
Now that we are officially in the best season of the year, here are a few albums to look out for to keep you warm in these final months until new releases trickle to a stop and 2019 ends.
Lana Del Rey is back with a beautiful album, and you shouldn’t be surprised.
Oso Oso’s one-man-show Jade Lilitri is singing about himself this time around.
Taylor Swift is having fun again on "Lover," and in a way that feels much more natural than "Reputation."
American Pleasure Club is back with their most haunting album yet. Unlike last year’s “A Whole F---ing Lifetime of This,” the more conceptual, artistic “F---ing Bliss” requires some context for enjoyment.
Sky Ferreira is finally back to making (and releasing!) music after a six year gap between her debut album, “Night Time, My Time,” and her new 2019 single, “Downhill Lullaby.” And her new brand of gothic, orchestral balladry sounds nothing like most of the hooky, electropop found on “Night Time.”
For the band Lomelda, empathy comes with few words, with silences, with space and with time passing.
The Octaves celebrated their 25th anniversary at their spring concert Sunday evening in the Henry Mansfield Cannon Memorial Chapel.
The Shanghai Quartet took the stage in a tiny, black-box theater in University of Richmond’s Booker Hall of Music more than a decade ago. For two years after, the Shanghai Quartet pushed for a larger acoustical space. Booker Hall now offers much more than a cramped, black-box theater and has held many performances.
While many students may know that the Mary Morton Parsons Music Library exists, few likely know about the extensive collection that is housed there, or some of its other features.
University of Richmond already has one rock star alumnus, Lumineers singer Wesley Schultz, but She's a Legend's Alex McDilda, Richmond College '14, and Camden Cantwell, RC '13, may not be far behind.

Professor Martin Bonadeo sits before the carillon, a two-tier keyboard in the upper reaches of Boatwright tower, scanning a sheet of wind direction data gathered by the Richmond airport. He is transforming the data into sound, by playing the wind readings as musical notes, and practicing for a week-long musical exploration that will begin Monday.
Have you ever walked through a maze? Which pathways would you choose to venture? Would the choice be easier if beyond each doorway different music was playing? The music blends but it is separate. The music is loud but sometimes it is quiet. The music is chaotic but it is focused. What if every doorway was the right choice? This is a music circus.
Anthony Seeger, nephew of the American folk musician and activist Pete Seeger, spoke about the ways music sparks social change at Camp Concert Hall Feb. 3, just one week after his renowned uncle had died at age 94.
