Nina Corcoran Album Reviews, Folk, Indie Rock, Lo-Fi, Punk News 0 Comments

If you’re lucky, at some point in life you meet a person who radiates an inexplicable warmth, like there’s a tiny star glowing inside of them. You don’t have to love them. You don’t even have to be friends. The person brightens whatever space they enter regardless of association. They immediately impact others surrounding them, even if they don’t engage …

Nothing brings heartbreak like being a teenager. It’s not just getting rejected by the pretty girl who sits next to you in social studies, either; it’s coming to terms with the tragic truths of life as your innocence slowly gets a reality check. This is the daily reality of Justin Cheromiah, a 17-year-old high school junior from San Francisco.

There’s also a bunch of nifty, thudding bass lines throughout. Take …
