Interview – The Narcotix

This summer, I met Essie Quoi and Becky Foinchas at Devoción Coffee in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. As founding songwriters of Afro-psych outfit The Narcotix, they share a sisterly familiarity, often giggling at inside jokes and finishing each other’s sentences. Essie (guitarist, bassist, and vocalist) rolls a joint as I pull up my chair. Becky (drummer, keyboardist,… Read More

Interview – .michael.

I first saw .michael. when they opened for Big Thief at Brooklyn Steel—an 1,800 capacity venue, completely sold out for the night. The clarinet and guitar duo (Michael Sachs on clarinet, Mikey Buishas on guitar) walked on stage in colorful sweaters and stretched out their joints, then settled in with chaste confidence. They took their… Read More

CONCERT REVIEW: Mitski at Brooklyn Steel

By Maria Bobbitt-Chertock. This summer, North Brooklyn seemed suddenly littered with ads, sprawling billboards: “Mitski’s BE THE COWBOY, stream it now on Spotify™.” Cowboy boots scuffed up the L train. Grown men wore “Makeout Creek Parks & Tourism” sweatshirts (a reference to Mitski’s third record, Bury Me at Makeout Creek) in eighty degree weather. And… Read More

Album Review: Lavender, by Half Waif

Listening to Lavender is like reading a fantasy novel. 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 drifts between coasts, exploring the complications… 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

Meet the Exec Board: Maria Bobbitt-Chertock (’20)

  Hey, I’m Maria (she/they), and I’ll be your spring semester tech director (I think that’s got a pretty nice ring to it)! This summer I’m back home in suburban Ohio, working in the Kenwood Mall food court. I make smoothies, juices, and sandwiches, employ deceptive corporate language (e.g., “It’s fresh frozen fruit” and “It’s… Read More
