Editorial: Genres, Breakdowns, and Drops

Perhaps it was after digital media became so widespread, or maybe it was the internet, or it could be a change in music sub-culture itself, but whatever the reason genres seem to have taken on a wholly new entity. Their original use as a categorizer seems moot now, instead replaced with arguments on the subtle differences between subgenres. Go look at any music video on youtube and you’ll fine approximate comments like this: “This band is clearly glitch-hop whereas that is dubstep;” “These guys are totally melodic death metal, how can you even say this is metalcore?”

Album Review: St. Vincent’s Self-Titled

Annie Clark is the picture of perfection: she’s adorable, talented, and just the right amount of unpredictable. In this fourth solo-album, her performance and her art form are taken to a whole another level.

Top 10 Possible Explanations for Why Pharrell Wears That Hat

Between the Grammys and the Oscars, you’ve probably seen rapper/producer/fashion designer/really talented guy Pharrell Williams’ big, brown 20 gallon hat in the media (or if you’re Sandra Bullock, from outer space). Because no one would willingly wear something like that, you’re probably asking, “Impact, you’re a hip music site, why is he really wearing that hat? What’s the scoop?” Well, dear readers, while no one uses the term “scoop” anymore, we may have some insight for you.

10. He lost a bet.
Maybe Pharrell’s friends bet him that he couldn’t eat 50 hot dogs in 15 minutes. Maybe he bet them that he would win the Oscar for Best Original Song. Maybe he bet that the Broncos would win the Super Bowl. He might be the man behind “Get Lucky,” but eventually everyone’s luck runs out.
