ALBUM REVIEW: SIR SLY’S YOU HAUNT ME

★★★★★  Review by: Alex Tringali

Los Angeles band Sir Sly is gearing up to release their debut album, You Haunt Me this month.  The indie pop trio band is redefining what it means to be dubbed as “indie.”  Typically thought of as effervescent and upbeat, Sir Sly’s “indie” music is a deep, dark, brooding type, with a balance between acoustic instruments and electronic beats. Originally, the trio functioned anonymously, adding to their mystery.  Once they generated a steady following, they finally revealed their true identities.

★★1/2  Review by: Hailey Pendergrass

Maroon 5 has spanned generations with their music.  Since their formation1994, this famed pop rock group has climbed their way to the top of almost every music chart out there with radio-happy songs such as “Misery”, “Moves Like Jagger”, and “Payphone”.  Their newest album, simply titled ‘V’, contains Adam Levine’s signature high-pitched falsetto, plenty of synth-electro tracks, and enough cheesy lines to make any thirteen-year-old girl melt.
