  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

Toledo-based band’s cd ok

Toledo-based band Bath House Betty brings us their latest album, Gingerbread, and with it a somber and melancholy sound. A mixture of guitars and cello behind the haunting croon of vocalist Rob Hawk create quite a depressing listen.

The songs alone are well-composed and musical; the lyrics, on the other hand, do not seem to fit with the deeper music. ?Dumbass? is the most melodic song on the CD, but the lyrics don?t go together with the music. What seems like it should be about a great love story or a wonderful event is instead about…well…a dumbass. Another thing about these guys is that sometimes you just want to start tapping your foot to help them keep the beat. Attempting to keep a cello and guitars in time without drums is, I?m sure, a little difficult, but I think they could have done just a little better keeping rhythm.

Don?t be deceived, Bath House Betty is a combination of great musicians that just need to spend a little more time on the lyrics and less focusing on the dimmer things in life. A great CD if you want to sit alone in your room in the dark, or maybe just need to relax, Bath House Betty is a calm and gloomy listen.
