I’ve been a huge fan of Shilpa Ray since the Teenage and Torture days. I borrowed my sister’s ID so I could see her before I was of age and then I saw her every possible chance when she was in the Midwest. Although, I must be honest, I think her albums after Teenage and Torture are good but they’ve never moved me in the way that the original...

“What’s Her Name?” by Smoking Martha

Apr 19, 2017

  It’s amazing how my music taste changes with the seasons. In the winter, I’m all doom and gloom but as soon as it’s nice outside I want to listen to catchier more upbeat tunes. The second single by Smoking Martha definitely takes me back to summers when I was in high school. “What’s Her Name?” is slightly reminiscent of...
