Laurie Patton, wya?

Two weeks ago, the Campus published an article detailing the racial profiling of former student (and WRMC DJ) Addis Fouche-Channer by a Public Safety Officer on March 2, after the Charles Murray talk. Last spring, a Judicial Affairs dean ruled that Fouche-Channer was not at Murray’s car, after being presented with statements from friends and… Read More

ALBUM REVIEW: TAKE ME APART – KELELA

Weirdly, the first thing to pop into my head after listening to Kelela’s new album, Take Me Apart, was Vin Diesel. More specifically, the infamous scene from his 2002 extreme sports/cyberpunk-lite flick XXX, in which he jumps over an exploding building on a motorbike.

Album Review: If Blue Could Be Happiness, by Florist

A Reflection on Blind Fandom and XXXTENTACION’s 17

CW: violence, abuse   Artistry and personal behavior are inseparable. I used to convince myself that the way an artist behaves behind closed doors has nothing to do with their music. I’d like to still believe this so I could enjoy R. Kelly as much as I used to—but I can’t. I want to listen… Read More

Meet the Exec Board – Jeremy Alben (’18)

Oh, hey. I’m Jeremy (he/him) and I’m on concerts committee next year. I’m from Seattle, WA and was raised on the whiny tones of Death Cab, the angst of Soundgarden and the genre-bending generational talents of Macklemore (I joke I joke).
