Cobra’s Top 15 Albums of 2018

15. Heroes Like Villains - Bad Vs Evil: This was a new direction for these former pop-punkers. This album is what a pop-rock album in 2018 should sound like. I also love the story the album tells. 14. Janelle Monae - Dirty Laundry: This is a fun album that makes you think and dance at the same time. Her lyrics are ...

Ray Cobra’s Top EPs of 2018

10. Grasmere - What We left Behind: The band formerly known as Second Story Anthem have been part of the Columbus pop-punk scene for a few years; I would even call them veterans. Last year they announced they were ending. Little did we know they were just rebranding and would come back with a refreshed sound and a new ...

Getz’s Top 30 Records of 2018

30. Beach House - 7: While Beach House will probably never be able to replicate the moment where I heard “Myth” for the first time (can any artist replicate a paradigm altering moment, though?), 7 is a nice mix of quiet tunes that sometimes veer from dreamy to foreboding, as the album’s aethestic might suggest. ...

FIVE ALBUMS WITH COBRA: RAY COBRA FROM TUNED UP (THANKSGIVING EDITION)

This is a special edition of five albums with Cobra. Typically, I get a local musician to do this, but today I felt like doing one myself. You knew this was going to happen at some point, right? So, it really shouldn’t be a surprise. Anyways, since it’s not a local musician doing it this month and it’s me, let’s just ...

WARPED TOUR: TEN BANDS TO WATCH + FIVE MORE

Sometime in November of last year, Kevin Lyman shocked the music world when he announced that the 2018 edition of the Vans Warped Tour would be the last. I, like many others, mourned as this festival is the cornerstone of my summer, my musical landscape, and—dare I say it—my life. For 18 years in some shape, form, or ...
