NEW TRACK: Parkay Quarts – “Uncast Shadow of a Southern Myth”

It’s not often that I’m compelled to use the word “beautiful” when describing the music released by the post-punk hooligans in Parquet Courts.  Typically, the band embodies energy in raw form, chugging through proto-punk chords at a relentless pace and rarely letting up.  But even punks like to sit down every once and a while,… Read More

On Sharon Van Etten

  April 29, 2014- Christine Friar (the blogger formerly known as Drink Your Juice) posts “Every Time The Sun Comes Up” on a social media site. I listen to it and the second it finishes I know I am in love. Sharon Van Etten’s voice has a nostalgic quality, her drawn out vowels and easy… 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

Exec Files: Vol. IV

The WRMC executive board presents their favorite tracks, albums, artists, and/or music videos of the week, old and new, but mostly new. TRACK: Tei Shi – “Bassically” Nothing indicates a genuine up-and-comer more than an artist playing a dutiful slew of shows at the annual CMJ festival, and this year the recently signed Tei Shi (Valerie Teicher),… Read More

Album Review

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

Exec Files: Vol. III

The WRMC executive board presents their favorite tracks, albums, artists, and/or music videos of the week, old and new, but mostly new. 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
