PUP // The Dream is Over

Fact: “The Dream is Over” is a direct quote from lead singer Stefan Babcock’s doctor. After Stefan basically destroyed his vocal chords due to the band’s insane touring schedule of about 250 shows a year, he was rewarded with this crushing diagnosis. But if the story sounds a little ridiculous or overly serious to you, you’re… Read More

87 % Piece of the Pie: A Playlist

After every half hour session of grilled bbq meat, cans of beer, and dripping pieces of fruit, all that’s left is the pie. For what it’s worth, the “old fashioned favorite,” is sweet, warm, comfortable, traditional and friggin’ delicious (one of the three things I can ever actually eat at a cookout). Apple, cherry, blueberry,… 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

I’m Not With the Band

The first time I heard All Dogs was in the summer of 2014, driving home after a job interview that hadn’t gone well. Something came on WRMC, bursting with reckless energy and harmony in turn. I pulled into the back alley on Bakery Lane to fumble with Shazam without endangering traffic. The band was All Dogs;… Read More

Ear Candy: A Semester of Sweet Tunes

The downside to college is that there no rummaging around your candy bag in post Halloween sugar cravings. You may think that sneaking a couple pieces from the kids you babysit for is going to suffice, but at the end of the day you didn’t get the candy yourself and it just doesn’t taste the… Read More

CMJ // A WRMC in the Wild

Just like Bryson, Kerouac, and London, members of WRMC will venture into the wild next week. Unlike these male only trips into the woods, we are going into the depths of the concrete jungle. It’s CMJ time, and for those of you not looking at floods of charting and adds emails, here’s the thing about… Read More

So quit trying so hard and embrace the season’s passing with a playlist meant for some Sunday slacking. Shark – Big Summer (Summer Ale) LVL UP – Bro Chillers Real Estate – Saturday Morning Built to… Read More
