[title size=”3″ style=”options: default, sidebar”]HAIM | Days Are Gone[/title]

With the recent releases for Lorde’s Pure Heroine and Chvrches’ The Bones of What You Believe, it has been a good couple of weeks for musical acts with unpronounceable names, but the most intriguing album so far has to go HAIM’s Days are Gone. Hailing from Los Angeles, their debut album is an excellent blend of pop and Stevie Nicks-ish rock. With songs like “The Wire” and “Falling,” Days Are Gone is an excellent album from a very intriguing up-and-coming band.

[title size=”3″ style=”options: default, sidebar”]Stage Musical | “The Book of Mormon”[/title]

The long awaited tour of acclaimed musical “The Book of Mormon” began its residency at the Orpheum Theater in Omaha this week, and the touring troupe looks to cement the legacy as Broadway’s most popular show. Created by the South Park guys, “The Book of Mormon” follows the journey of two bright-eyed LDS missionaries and their misadventures. Tickets may not be particularly cheap, but consider it an investment in contemporary American culture. Runs Oct. 12th-20th.

There’s a reason Zedd can’t stop recommending Miriam Bryant: She’s amazing. With a vibrant pop sound, a touch of electronic to bolster it, and a powerhouse of a voice, Push Play is a fantastic start for the Swedish singer. She belts lyrics for all she’s worth on the title track, and keeps the energy going until the closing track “Alone Isn’t Lonely.” While there are definitely albums more popular than Bryant’s EP,  Push Play is an example of how pop music in 2013 should be done.

Pokemon X and Y

[title size=”3″ style=”options: default, sidebar”]Video Game | Pokemon X and Y, Nintendo[/title]

Pokemon X and Y is one of the few games in the series that can actually be called revolutionary. Boasting a new 3D graphics engine, customizable characters (finally!), brand new Pokemon-including a new Fairy type-and new online features, X and Y is a dramatic and much-needed change to the Pokemon series. However, underneath all the gloss remains the same basic formula, which is a good thing, because the gameplay is just as solid as ever, if not better. Pokemon X and Y  are reason enough to get a 3DS.
