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

WRMC’s 2016 in Review

YEAR END WRAP UP Shock and surprise paved the heartbreaking year of 2016. In the most bleak corners of the year we lost more music idols and icons than we knew how to deal with. The new year was met with the terrible loss of David Bowie and soon after came the loss of  Maurice White,… Read More

OF MONTREAL // INNOCENCE REACHES

Classic of Montreal + electronica + relationship failure. Innocence Reaches contains the band’s first completely EDM songs, a new musical foray that is especially significant remembering that Kevin Barnes used to only listen to music from the 1970s and earlier. Coupled with EDM, Innocence Reaches‘ other key element is glammy prog rock in a vein similar to that found… Read More

The Avalanches // Wildflower

My high school friends and I didn’t know what to expect when we watched the 1981 film Polyester, directed by John Waters. Waters is a master of gross, bizarre, dark comedy, typically taking aim at the depraved denizens of white, suburban, upper-class America. In this particular film, an unfortunate housewife named Francine Fishpaw (played by… Read More

Death Grips // Bottomless Pit

The summers of 2014 and 2015 could not have been more different for me. 2014 was the start of a new relationship, and 2015 was the difficult ending. Although the two summers were a year apart, and although they corresponded to two opposite emotional poles of my life, I associate both summers with many of… Read More

WRMC’s 2015 in Review

YEAR END WRAP UP Amidst all the shit that went down in the tumultuous year that was 2015, at least there was great music. In Vermont, our frigid first months of the year featured a substantial amount of sparseness and heartbreak with strong releases from Viet Cong, Title Fight, Mount Eerie, and Bjork. We rallied… Read More
