Kevin Parker takes Tame Impala’s sound in a new direction with Currents, embracing disco and soul-tinged electronic dance music. As each of the four singles (“Let It Happen”, “‘Cause I’m A Man”, “Eventually”, and “Disciples”) was released this spring, it became apparent Parker was doing something significantly different and truly spectacular. While the transition to… Read More
Friday means great new music from lovely summer manager, Maggie. Our fourth Friday playlist starts off light and playful and transitions into ominous darkness. We love it, and believe you will as well.
Brain Cream, Jaill’s fifth album, is chock-full of infectious jangle pop and often toys on the edge of surf rock. This is an interesting genre for a band that is based out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin and full of depressingly melancholic lyrics. Lo-fi and a bit psychedelic, Jaill plays in a style comparable to that of… Read More
We present you with the third installment of Friday Favorites. As always, this is a collection of fresh new music curated by Maggie, one of your lovely summer managers.
Happy Friday! Once more, a playlist of excellent new songs we’ve been really into this past week has been compiled just for you. WRMC loves you <3
There are few things more exhilarating than discovering a great pop album. Parlour Tricks’ debut album, Broken Hearts/Bones, pronounced “broken hearts and broken bones” and just released today, is one of the more invigorating ones we’ve heard lately. Spotify called their sound “vintage pop for the future”, an accurate description. Broken Hearts/Bones is guitar and… Read More
Howdy howdy. This is Maggie, one of your new summer managers here at WRMC, and I’ll be sharing a weekly playlist of music I’ve been really into each Friday. Listen to playlist #1 and enjoy!
Jacco Gardner’s Hypnophobia is lush and intricately layered, full of strings and synths. In this highly introspective album the young Dutch artist explores the world between waking and sleeping. Hypnophobia is the fear of sleep and, having had many weird and introspective anxiety dreams myself lately, I really believe the thoughts we experience in our… Read More
Aureate Gloom is of Montreal’s thirteenth LP, and lead singer/band leader Kevin Barnes continues to be a musical genius. Though he has changed the band’s line up once again, the infectious melodies, esoteric references (get your dictionary), and vocal harmonies we’ve come to expect from of Montreal are all still here. Aureate means golden and… Read More
The Hum, Hookworms’ latest album, continues their tradition of noisy, droning, and lively neo-psych, full of the feedback and strong bass lines we’ve come to expect from their past works. I truly love drone, but find a lot of drone rock is bland, overly repetitive, and dull. Hookworms is never dull. Minimalistic in spots, but… Read More
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
