Why I Hate the Term Guilty Pleasure

Feb 21, 2014 - Music - 0 Comments - Standard

When I am in my office, I find it difficult to concentrate and focus when it is too quiet, so I almost always have music playing. In fact, Spotify is usually one of the first programs I open on my computer each morning. I mostly listen to alternative/indie rock, but my taste in music varies […]

Scottish rock trio Biffy Clyro dropped their sixth studio album, and their first since 2009’s Only Revolutions, on Tuesday. Over the last decade, Biffy Clyro have perfected the formula for big rock albums, and their newest release is no exception.
