Jill Power has had a pretty interesting go of it in the last few years. For starters, the MUN student started a Podcast, Chill with Jill aired on CHMR Radio as a means to get engaged with interesting people. Turns out, she ends up chatting with the cream of the crop – Newfoundland go tos like Mark Critch and Tom Power and she even sat down with Peter Mansbridge for a dandy chat at one point- can you imagine? “I have my hands in a bit of everything. The podcast started in 2015, my first year of university. Radio was always one of those things I always wanted to do,” explained the host. “I was originally studying Education and The…

Record Store Day 2017

Record Store Day

It’s been about seven years since I first heard of Record Store Day and even then, I didn’t know too much about it other than the fact that my favorite band in the entire galaxy U2, was releasing a limited edition (of only five thousand to be exact) EPs on vinyl for Record Store Day’s “Back To Black Friday” initiative. At the time, I didn’t even own a record player, but I contacted our local record store, Fred’s and asked if they were getting any copies of this collectible item in. That’s all I thought of Wide Awake In Europe; a collectible item. Black Friday came and went and I got my hands on the record. The EP’s sleeve was…

For the longest time I figured my adoration for The Analog Age came from my deep love for the three band mates. They each held a special place in my heart completely outside of their musical talents and my pride was bursting every time they went on stage. Like a mom in the corner cheerleading like a boss. “Those are my boys up there; they are going to be famous some day! You’ll see, you’ll all see!”   Well in a sense, my motherly instincts were right. In September, The Analog Age posted their first video for “No Sleep” and it went NL Viral. With 12K views and 112 Shares, these boys have some recognizable talent. During this tidal wave…

You and Your Friends Should Buy This

in Music by

“Your Friends Don’t Buy it at All” is It Could be Franky’s debut album, a project from Land of the Lake’s member Danielle Hamel. As a huge fan of hers, I can sense some similarities in the lyrics between Hamel’s solo and duo acts. Or maybe it’s just her voice I am familiar with or her words resonate with me on many levels, no matter what musical platform.

Why Lemonade Is Beyoncé’s Jagged Little Pill

On Saturday April 16, Beyoncé released a teaser video online for something called Lemonade. Whatever Lemonade was, it would debut the following Saturday on HBO. Was it a new song and accompanying video? An album announcement? The Beyhive was buzzing. Queen Bey started her Formation world tour on April 27th so whatever Lemonade was, it was going to be big. I sort of figured this might be a new music video or maybe it was an entire album. With a name like Lemonade, I expected something summery; you know when you listen to a song or an album and you think “This sounds like summer.”? What we got was something that certainly quenched our thirst; an entire album with an…
