My August Music Hunt
Start writing a post

With a July full of new albums and singles, August did not have that many releases. With the lack of releases, I spent a lot of the month researching new music, especially smaller alternative rock bands. I was able to find a lot of up and coming British bands through my Spotify research.

M60, Lostboy, and Riscas are three of the British bands I am very excited to introduce to new fans. Read the listicle below to learn and listen to these artists.

The Rolling Stones - 'Scarlet'

The Rolling Stones and Jimmy Page released an unreleased song from the '70s known as "Scarlet" this July. The band had been promoting their reissue of "Goats Head Soup," a 1973 favorite with this hidden track. The music video for "Scarlet" was released in early August, and it features Paul Mescal, an Irish actor.

Teenage Wrist - 'Silverspoon'

Teenage Wrist released their latest single "Silverspoon" after a 2019 EP and 2018 debut album release. The band has gone through quite a bit of change since their debut album release but still maintain the same sound and fanbase.


"Places" is another single that will most likely be on the band's anticipated sophomore album. The duo come back with a new song and video pleasing their fans and attracting a new audience with their frequently evolving sound.

Larkins - 'TV Dream'

"TV Dream" is not a new song for the band, Larkins, but it is one that I have recently discovered. Larkins is an alternative indie foursome from Manchester. This catchy tune is worth the listen and is the perfect upbeat song to end your summer with.

M60 - 'Honey'

M60 is another band from the United Kingdom that I discovered this month through my Spotify searches for new music. M60 is definitely an up and coming band from Manchester that you need to keep an eye out for. Some of their other songs include "I Don't Mind" and "Blindside."

Paris Youth Foundation - 'Late Night Lost Love' 

Paris Youth Fountain is another band from the United Kingdom that I found this month. "Late Night Lost Love" is one of many singles that I'd recommend listening to.

Riscas - 'Panic Like Tom'

During my search for new music, I was able to find another U.K. band called Riscas! "Panic Like Tom" is upbeat and a song you want to play over and over!

Corella - 'On Wax'

Corella released their latest single "On Wax" in late August. The single is energetic and embodies their sound as a band. If you like this song, I'd recommend listening to: "Bloom," "Barcelona Girl," or "Come Around."

The Covasettes - 'This Feeling'

The Covasettes are another British band I found through my research that I am very excited about! "This Feeling" along with many more songs have the perfect sound for the summer. I am excited to hear more from this band!

Lostboy - 'Luna'

As you might be able to tell by now, August was my month for finding new music! I found a lot of great British bands in the process, most of which are up and coming artists. Lostboy is an awesome example of an artist with a refreshing sound. "Luna" along with many other songs has a refreshing guitar sound and it leaves me wanting to hear more!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
