MEET THE EXEC BOARD – MADDY GOODHART (’19)

Hi friends! I’m Maddy (she/her) and I’m gonna be your General Manager this 2018-19 school year. I’m originally from Newburyport, MA, but this summer I’m living in Middlebury and leaning into my rural alter ego with a vengeance. By day I work at the station, where Noah Sauer and I can usually be found in… Read More

PLAYLIST: STRAWBERRY MOON

The air has burned at over 90 degrees for five days straight and a lack of fluctuation blurs the distinction between night and day. Heat rises, and if you ascend the staircase to your bedroom the warmth just hangs heavier. Normalcy is no longer an option. Rub peppermint oil on your wrists and drive up… Read More

Whether you’re being lawful and sleeping in your your designated residence or performing a stakeout on the floor of one of Middlebury’s air conditioned academic buildings, WRMC supports your cause.

Playlist: Light Through The Clouds

Cold raindrops materialize out of the humid air. Treetops and old mill towers peek out of a thick mist. The scent of wet earth permeates the air. Crack the window to find the rain has stopped. Look up at the sky.

Album Review

Album Review: Lavender, by Half Waif

Listening to Lavender is like reading a fantasy novel before “maturity” ruined that for you. 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… Read More

Interview: Eric Benoit on finding inspiration in trauma

On a guitar rich in bass tones and coated with tasteful reverb, Eric Benoit conjures a series of gentle arpeggios, punctuating them with a few well-placed harmonics. Then, with his lilting tenor, he carries us through simple, evocative lyrics: “I’ve never been to New Mexico / Never seen the canyons there / But I open… 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

EURO TRASH SEX MUSIC: A PLAYLIST

club kid mating calls of the early 2000s You step down off the doorstep and onto the narrow sidewalk as soon as the sun sets. The sky hovers at a deep blue, and the multicolored lights from street reflect off your heavily bleached hair. You pull the fur-lined hood of your jacket over your head… Read More

Album Review

Album Review: Take Me Apart, by 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
