On June 4, 2009, I became a Harvard Alum with a degree in music. This is a record of my life thereafter.

Use it wisely.

For once (ONCE!) in my life, I’m going to disagree with Katy Perry and declare that “Prime” is Allie X’s Spring Jam.  Yes, “Catch" is a great (and more structurally interesting) song, but "Prime" gets seriously stuck in my head.  Her biography on AllMusic describes her sound as “airy yet sassy electro-pop”, which I just can’t stop reading in a cockney accent.

According to Billboard, Allie X is planning on a less traditional rollout which “incorporates original artwork, videos and GIFs”, which is fine and all, but please hurry.  I have a feeling Allie X could be the best thing to happen to Toronto since Joe Carter hit that home run that one time.

According to lead singer Matthew Healy, Manchester-based The 1975 got their name from some scribblings in a book about the beat generation he received while on vacation in Majorca.  The page was dated “1 June. The 1975”, and when it came time to pick a name for the band, (t)he(y) felt it was perfect.

This version of “Sex” is the third track on the 2012 EP of the same name.  The 1975 re-recorded the song for their self-titled debut album in 2013, but I find this version to be slightly more vibrant (read: better).  Feel free to tell me how wrong you think I am.
