Andrew Bird // Are You Serious

A great effort by an established indie alt-folk artist, but unfortunately marred by one of his worst songs in years. Before the announcement of Are You Serious earlier this year, Andrew Bird fans were starting to worry he’d never release a proper follow-up to 2012’s excellent LP Break it Yourself. In the four years between… Read More

Julia Brown // An Abundance of Strawberries

I love lo-fi. There’s a certain warm, human charm to a song that sounds like it could have been recorded in a 17-year-old’s bedroom. Imperfections in the recording of a song can give it life and humanity, the way Monet’s imperfect brushstrokes infuse his energy into the reflections of a pond full of water lilies…. Read More

Album Review

David Bowie // Blackstar

David Bowie’s Blackstar is intricate but desolate, both optimistic and rife with the inevitability of mortality. Sonically, jazz and prog rock electronica prevail. With ample use of saxophone, an instrument he learned to play as a young teenager, Bowie returns to the musical beginnings of his youth. With this final album he also reminds us… Read More

UPCOMING CONCERTS: Winter 2016

As the icy grip of winter takes hold of Middlebury and the rest of Northern New England over the next three months, you’re probably going to need an escape that doesn’t involve the outdoors. What better way to beat the winter blues than to see some live music in and around the great Green Mountain state? We’ve compiled a list… 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
