Cuz I Love You – Lizzo

Mom warning: Some content in the embedded audio and video files includes references to sexual activity. Millennial: So, despite Lizzo’s recent posts about music reviewers, we are in no way professionals, so let’s do this! I absolutely adored all of Cuz I Love You. The pure self-positivity and love that flowed through was an experience that I don’t often have with music. I first got … Continue reading Cuz I Love You – Lizzo

This Land – Gary Clark Jr.

Mom: I’m excited to be blogging again, and especially to be reviewing an album by local guitar hero, Gary Clark, Jr. His new album, This Land, is a bit of a departure from his previous albums, which were primarily blues-based.  I knew Clark was versatile, because he’s collaborated with artists as diverse as Keith Urban, Alicia Keys, and Foo Fighters. He proves it on his … Continue reading This Land – Gary Clark Jr.

Our Favorites of 2018!

Mom: It’s time for the first annual Best of the Year edition of Mom and the Millennial. 2018 was a tough year personally, and I didn’t get to see as much live music as I wanted, but I still saw some amazing shows, listened to some great music, and discovered some new (and new-to-me) bands to love.

Millennial: Having never seen a biopic, I was super excited to see “Bohemian Rhapsody,” especially since my boy, Rami Malek, … Continue reading Bohemian Rhapsody Movie Review

Shake the Spirit – Elle King

Mom: I’m glad we have the chance to review an Elle King album, since you’re the person who first made me aware of this singer we both enjoy. I’m also happy to say I thoroughly enjoyed King’s second album, Shake the Spirit. Although the songs on this album came from a rough period in the singer’s life (a quickie marriage to a man she’d known … Continue reading Shake the Spirit – Elle King

ACL Fest 2018 Wrap-Up

Mom: Our ACL experience for 2018 is complete, and after a few days to recover, I have some thoughts on the event.  The changes made last year, like adding more overall area to the festival, especially more space for relaxing in the shade, and upgrading the port-a-potties, make for a much more enjoyable weekend. It seems C3, the event’s producers, took some of the flak … Continue reading ACL Fest 2018 Wrap-Up
