Hot and fresh out the kitchen! Yes, it’s that time of the week again. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and start to Hanukkah. Since I’m sure all of you were remixing your Thanksgiving dinners into leftover sandwiches and stews all weekend, I figured it was a great week to bring you some chopped up and revamped versions of recent hip hop songs, starting with none other than our beloved JT. Justin Timberlake – “TKO (Black Friday Remix)” Featuring Pusha-T, J….

Good Monday to all the Lax All Stars across the globe! With Tom and Peyton grappling for NFL legend status and Kanye and Miley battling for the controversy spotlight, I thought it would be appropriate to stay off the beaten path for another Music Monday.
To close out your Monday, we’re coming through with a great new reggae-rock album by Georgia’s own Passafire. This band formed back in 2003 when a bunch of college kids got together and started experimenting with their sound, which has evolved into something on the edgier side of that chill alternative beach sound.
The first two installments of this “Concussions in Lacrosse” series detailed what a concussion really is and why we should care about them. We covered a number of potential consequences of concussions (Post-Concussion Syndrome, Second Impact Syndrome and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) to outline why it is important to pay attention to them and protect ourselves.
We’re back with a new Music Monday, on Wednesday, and for this rare Wed morning edition, we’re having a look at rap legend Eminem’s new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2. I’m going to go right ahead and say that Eminem was, is (still), and always will be, one of the best rappers in the game. Yes, he’s had some sub-par albums in recent years, but I think that Recovery and especially this new album, which released November 5th, show that he hasn’t lost a step and remains one of the best lyricists and collaborators.
Last week, we covered the basics of what a concussion actually is, what symptoms can be experienced, and the common causes in the game of lacrosse. In this post, I’ll be discussing why we should care about concussions and what type of consequences can be associated with this type of injury. A 2012 study reported that among high school sports, concussion rate was third highest in boys’ lacrosse behind football and ice hockey. Another 2013 study by the NY Institute of Technology surveyed high school girls’ lacrosse players…
Let me introduce to you the Dallas duet known simply as The O’s. Taylor Young and John Pedigo played together in various other bands before striking out alone on their guitar and banjo in 2008. These two can absolutely jam and really show it on their new album, entitled Thunderdog, which let’s be honest is one of the coolest album names out there…Is it a dog made of thunder? Is it a conjunct of ‘the under dog?’ It’s probably both and…
Over the past few months, concussions have been gaining more and more attention in the media, schools, sports leagues, and the medical world. FRONTLINE recently aired League of Denial: The NFL’s Concussion Crisis, which left viewers reeling about the subject. Around the same time, Lacrosse Magazine published a few stories on concussions, including one featuring former Duke and Cannons stand-out Brad Ross.
ATCR recently dropped their latest album, Nation II Nation, which includes tracks like “Sisters” and “Bread and Cheese” below. CW put it best, this music “Makes me want to play lacrosse!”
Today we’re checking in with two well-known “college rap” rappers that have been maturing over the last couple years… and moving away from the party rap scene into their own deeper genres.
Our man Fritts is back with another stellar installment of Music Monday.
Earlier this year, we introduced you to my favorite band, Blitzen Trapper, in ‘The Nemo Edition’ of Music Monday.
A few months back, I introduced you to two young emerging talents in the rap game, Logic and Chance The Rapper. Well those two have continued to impress me and recently put out some new singles that I wanted to bring to you as a follow up edition on this Monday night. Moving forward, don’t forget about these two as they continue to make noise and turn heads.
Fritts is back! This week with four songs from three different genres. Mixing it up on Monday!
Just as it sounds, we’re back with the nightly post of Music Monday to give you three new tracks that make up a perfect night of music…just enough of everything. ‘Nuff said.
Thank God it’s Labor Day! Thanks to those good ol’ Knights of Labor, we had an extra day to keep the weekend alive and celebrate the end of summer.
So what happened at the MTV VMAs? At least *N’SYNC reunited right?…Although summer may be fading out, world-renowned 23 year old DJ Avicii is set to release his new album in September.
Today on LAS, we are introducing you to a medley of relaxing, kickback beach music. I’m writing from the beautiful San Juan Islands in Washington, where I’ve been laying back, watching the glassy water, and listening to tunes like this all week.
Here at LAS, I’d like to think we’ve been on a roll as of late bringing you some great music that you won’t find on the Billboard charts or iTunes top lists, and we’re keeping the ball rolling on that theme this week.
A few months back, we hit you with an edition of Music Monday titled “Those Pesky Kids,” full of new music by some ridiculously young artists that make a guy like me feel old these days.
