Listeners deserve good music. Music deserves good listeners.
Why do we consume the music we listen to? What about it draws us in, or leaves us unsatisfied? What does it say about us as a society? These are all lofty questions, so let's try to answer them.
Mic The Snare is a video series that is researched, written, filmed, and edited by yours truly. Every month or so, I take a look at some piece (or pieces) of music and analyze it from a unique angle. In between each case study, I also upload very short (10-30 sec) reviews of the latest album releases (Quick Review Basheroos) or an artist’s entire discography. (Deep Discog Dive)
Whether it's using music theory to realize that Taylor Swift's Reputation is glaringly repetitive or Carly Rae Jepsen's "Run Away With Me" is quietly brilliant, using critical listening to determine why Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience is a draining listen due to an overbearing low-end presence, or comparing numerous records to define the phenomenon of "so bad it's good" music, Mic The Snare seeks to provide new perspectives to the music you know and love (or don't know/don't love).
