Album Review

Julia Brown // An Abundance of Strawberries

I love lo-fi. There’s a certain warm, human charm to a song that sounds like it could have been recorded in a 17-year-old’s bedroom. Imperfections in the recording of a song can give it life and humanity, the way Monet’s imperfect brushstrokes infuse his energy into the reflections of a pond full of water lilies…. Read More

The Top 10 Music Videos of 2015

This past Friday, January 22, WRMC DJs convened in The Mill living room to celebrate the third annual WRMC Video Music Awards Countdown.

Below you’ll find three great… Read More

Album Review

David Bowie // Blackstar

David Bowie’s Blackstar is intricate but desolate, both optimistic and rife with the inevitability of mortality. Sonically, jazz and prog rock electronica prevail. With ample use of saxophone, an instrument he learned to play as a young teenager, Bowie returns to the musical beginnings of his youth. With this final album he also reminds us… Read More

UPCOMING CONCERTS: Winter 2016

As the icy grip of winter takes hold of Middlebury and the rest of Northern New England over the next three months, you’re probably going to need an escape that doesn’t involve the outdoors. What better way to beat the winter blues than to see some live music in and around the great Green Mountain state? We’ve compiled a list… Read More

WRMC’s 2015 in Review

YEAR END WRAP UP Amidst all the shit that went down in the tumultuous year that was 2015, at least there was great music. In Vermont, our frigid first months of the year featured a substantial amount of sparseness and heartbreak with strong releases from Viet Cong, Title Fight, Mount Eerie, and Bjork. We rallied… Read More

I’m Not With the Band

The first time I heard All Dogs was in the summer of 2014, driving home after a job interview that hadn’t gone well. Something came on WRMC, bursting with reckless energy and harmony in turn. I pulled into the back alley on Bakery Lane to fumble with Shazam without endangering traffic. The band was All Dogs;… Read More

Ear Candy: A Semester of Sweet Tunes

The downside to college is that there no rummaging around your candy bag in post Halloween sugar cravings. You may think that sneaking a couple pieces from the kids you babysit for is going to suffice, but at the end of the day you didn’t get the candy yourself and it just doesn’t taste the… Read More

Joanna Newsom // Divers

We, the human race, should be admired for our willingness to persist in our constant struggle against the realities of mortal existence. We’re highly practiced in fighting these realities, and yet we seem to perpetually lack any effective means of suppressing our fear of our own rapidly approaching demise, let alone digesting the idea that… Read More

CMJ // A WRMC in the Wild

Just like Bryson, Kerouac, and London, members of WRMC will venture into the wild next week. Unlike these male only trips into the woods, we are going into the depths of the concrete jungle. It’s CMJ time, and for those of you not looking at floods of charting and adds emails, here’s the thing about… Read More

Young Thug // Slime Season

Photo by Kendrick Brinson Young Thug is an inexplicable character whose sudden rise to fame sheds light on the American music industry’s desperate need for something spectacularly different. Is he an artistic genius? Or has he simply fooled some people into believing he is? I argue that it doesn’t matter. He’s better enjoyed without analysis or… Read More
