Brasen Chi

April 28, 2020

Warning: Spoilers ahead. With many people looking forward to the cinematic debut of their favorite blue hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog had varying expectations set upon it. Some believed it to be another joke movie. Others had hoped that it would do their childhood nostalgia justice; however, after...

On Friday, March 6, Philly-based rapper Lil Uzi Vert shocked the world by dropping his highly anticipated album, Eternal Atake. This project has been in the works for almost three years, since the rapper dropped Luv Is Rage 2, which many considered to be the album of the year, in 2017. Known for being...

Album Review: Spanish Love Songs’ “Brave Faces, Everyone”

Guest writer Brendan Ho reviews Spanish Love Songs'

April 2, 2020

I have a bit of a confession to make–I never intended to use this outlet as a sort of “Recommendations Corner.” I wanted to be a proper critic, who not only trumpeted praise when it was deserved, but came down on records that weren’t up to par. With reviews of two records I adore already published,...

March 23, 2020

Lil Baby, one of the breakout stars in the era of autotune and mumble rap, has released his second studio album, "My Turn," a follow up to his debut, "Harder than Ever," which boasted hits like "Yes Indeed" and "Life Goes On," songs that featured the likes of Lil Uzi Vert, Drake and frequent collaborator...

Opinion: ‘Avatar: the Last Airbender’ is the best children’s cartoon

WSPN's Brasen Chi celebrates the 15th anniversary of

Brasen Chi

March 11, 2020

With the 15th year anniversary of "Avatar: the Last Airbender" having recently passed on Feb. 21, I believed that this masterful show deserved to be remembered. For the uncultured, "The Last Airbender" revolves around a world with four nations, each represented by the element that its people can control,...

Review: Halsey’s “Manic”

February 19, 2020

Let’s start with the songs on Halsey’s new album, “Manic,” that exemplify her classic style: “You should be sad.” With only one song on a 16-track-album connecting Halsey’s newest work to her older music, she left plenty of room to explore new genres and experiment with new lyrics. In...

Review: Harry Styles’ “Fine Line”

In the latest installment of Staff Reviews, WSPN's Alyssa Dickstein provides a review of Harry Styles' latest album,

Alyssa Dickstein

February 6, 2020

Harry Styles released singles “Lights Up,” “Watermelon Sugar” and “Adore You” to gain publicity for his newest album “Fine Line.” By doing so, he failed to prepare the world for his new music. I believe that Styles might have released his three worst songs in anticipation for the Dec....

Review: “Frozen II”

Taylor McGuire

January 8, 2020

Warning: spoilers ahead. With a 127-million-dollar-grossing opening weekend, Disney’s “Frozen II” hoped to follow “Frozen" in its footsteps, and earn an astonishing 1.3 billion in its run. I was really looking forward to watching “Frozen II,” since “Frozen” was one of my favorite movies...

Dua Lipa is back! After a one year hiatus, Lipa has returned to the top charts with her new single, “Don’t Start Now.” The song opens: “Did a full 180, crazy.” But, despite what this intro implies, Lipa has not changed at all. In fact, based on this new release, her music has stayed the same...

Album Review: “Everyday Life” by Coldplay

December 16, 2019

After seven albums, Coldplay has decided to try something new in album No. 8, “Everyday Life.” It’s refreshing. It’s different. It’s a change for the band, but even though it changed its genre, it did not change the topic it sings about: tragedy. In the past, Coldplay had a very specific sound:...

November 26, 2019

Oct. 3 marked the release of Lauv’s EP “~How I’m Feeling~." Contrary to the title, the EP does not center around just one emotion but multiple. The first song on the track list, “Sims," is a love song, but by the end of the EP, Lauv has completely changed directions with the song “I’m so tired...
