PLAYLIST: STRAWBERRY MOON

The air has burned at over 90 degrees for five days straight and a lack of fluctuation blurs the distinction between night and day. Heat rises, and if you ascend the staircase to your bedroom the warmth just hangs heavier. Normalcy is no longer an option. Rub peppermint oil on your wrists and drive up… Read More

Playlist: Light Through The Clouds

Cold raindrops materialize out of the humid air. Treetops and old mill towers peek out of a thick mist. The scent of wet earth permeates the air. Crack the window to find the rain has stopped. Look up at the sky.

Album Review

Album Review: Lavender, by Half Waif

Listening to Lavender is like reading a fantasy novel before “maturity” ruined that for you. Nandi Plunkett—A.K.A. Half Waif—crafts haunting melodies that suspend you in a dusky dreamworld. She takes on the role of this world’s troubadour, disturbed by her travels, by homesickness, by a very beautiful kind of sadness. We follow her as she… Read More

Interview: Eric Benoit on finding inspiration in trauma

On a guitar rich in bass tones and coated with tasteful reverb, Eric Benoit conjures a series of gentle arpeggios, punctuating them with a few well-placed harmonics. Then, with his lilting tenor, he carries us through simple, evocative lyrics: “I’ve never been to New Mexico / Never seen the canyons there / But I open… Read More

WRMC’s 2017 Year in Review

Here lies 2017, the year she told you not to worry about. And look what came of it: 2017 took your net neutrality, brought Charles Murray to campus, and made your annoying twelve-year-old cousin Bitcoin rich. And what’s your consolation prize? A fidget spinner in your stocking and tide pods for Christmas dinner. More seriously—2017… Read More

Album Review: All is Not Lost, by Matt Ellin

When I first met Matt Ellin, he was by far the coolest punk kid at our Pennsylvania performing arts summer camp, and at first I hadn’t the slightest idea how to relate to him. But as fate would have it, we soon became close friends and musical collaborators. He has always been intimidatingly funny, talented,… Read More
