In a culture where memes run the world, hip-hop has thrived this year like no other genre has. Well over half of the current Billboard Hot 100 songs are primarily by hip-hop artists, but social media has allowed hip-hop to reach massive success beyond what we quantify as successful on a commercial le...

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I opened the door to the hazy, moody and intimate concert venue at Lincoln Hall to see a band I had never heard of before. It was Oct. 20, the night of the performance of an up-and-coming indie-pop band, appropriately named lovelytheband. Two hours later I was sold on t...

Alex Bialek | The DePaulia What a week it has been in music--not really because of any music, but rather the actions of the music makers.
