The WRMC executive board presents their favorite tracks, albums, artists, and/or music videos of the week, old and new, but mostly new. TRACK: Waxahatchee – “Bathtub” Fuck T.S. Eliot, October is the cruelest month. I hold strong and true to my belief that October, more than any other month, is packed with aching. It’s a kind of aching that urges… Read More

Flying Lotus // You’re Dead!

Consistency is key, says the new indie-n proverb I decided was true for the sake of this write up. A well-crafted, unique sound is any musician’s best friend; experimentation is the double-edged résumé-stuffer that critics crave (nay, demand!)  but only when done right. Change too little and you’ll become boring and cantankerous. Change too much… Read More

Hozier // Hozier

Hozier – “Take Me To Church” Irish singer-songwriter Andrew Hozier-Byrne (Hozier) returned on October 7th with his spectacular, soulful, self-titled full-length album. Following the brilliant 2013 single “Take Me To Church,” which criticizes Russia’s anti-homosexual policy and whose haunting music video went viral in late 2013, this soulful artist had quite an expectation to live… Read More

Wampire // Bazaar

Wampire’s second album, Bazaar, released October 7th, is all we could hope for and more. The group takes the dancey, synth-psych sound of Curiosity, their first album, and pumps even more energy and innovation into it. From beginning to end, it’s delightful. Various styles are incorporated, from dance, to punk in “Sticking Out,” and even… Read More

TRACK: Run the Jewels – “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry” Barring the fact that it has run rampant underground for the better part of a decade, industrial-inspired house-tinged rap has blown up these past few years on… Read More

Music I Should’ve Grown Up With (2010-2013)

So we have reached it. The final post. What follows are four of the most innovative and exciting albums I’ve heard, period. They bode well for a future that is sure to hold its share of incredible music yet to come, music that I will likely be raising my own children on. That being said,… Read More

The Lesson from Snapline

Part 1: Do Chinese people, like, listen to music? I’ve been in Beijing for six months. It’s great, thanks for asking. The calendar days are shedding off quicker and quicker. In two months, I’ll be off the boat, and yet almost assuredly washed away in the undertow of my inebriated friends’ questions about Chinese food… Read More

Leftsetz or Rightsetz?

My thoughts on “Gotta Get To Know You” by Bob Lefsetz “Because it’s about the experience, whether it be coming or listening to music, it’s what it feels like during, not what you’re left with after.” First of all, this is an amazing song from an amazing band. You should definitely take a listen to… Read More
