Lauren Hoffman: Becoming the Secret Storm

Alternative rock songstress, Lauren Hoffman, puts together a stellar collection of her old and new tracks before she changes her screen name to The Secret Storm. In Becoming the Secret Storm, Lauren treats us with eight impeccable pieces that channels back the ’90s fashion of grungy guitars and female confessionals.
Major Major

Major Major: Major Major  

Anthemic bravado sampled with creative melodies define Major Major’s sound—a formula reminiscent of Muse’s lovably unlovable music and Radiohead’s self-loathing. Still, as an indie act that covers thumping beats and striking guitar riffs, it’s an album that will strike a chord with the pop/rock set, despite the minimal variation in terms of theme or mood with each song.
