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. The stunt, filmed with nine different cameras, shows his leap from nearly… Read More

SEPOMANA SPOTLIGHT: Ratking

In folklore, a rat king occurs when dozens of rats, squirming and wriggling around in compact, dirty places become tangled and knotted together by their tails, creating a writhing mass, even freakier than than the sum of its parts. Just as one can imagine New York City subways being a prime location for a knot… Read More

SEPOMANA SPOTLIGHT: Yonatan Gat

When people say about music, “it’s way better live than on record,” it’s usually in reference to electronic music, and generally a slight to the band’s albums.

WRMC presents: GROOVEYARD 2014 feat. Big Freedia
