WRMC’s 2018 Year in Review

It is the year 2018 and music lives in clouds and streams. Airpods deliver computer-generated sounds directly to our brains in hopes of harvesting the newest addition to the long list of dwindling natural resources: dopamine. This year, the new millenium claimed the Queen of Soul herself, Aretha Franklin, and the premature losses of Avicii,… Read More

CONCERT REVIEW: Mitski at Brooklyn Steel

By Maria Bobbitt-Chertock. This summer, North Brooklyn seemed suddenly littered with ads, sprawling billboards: “Mitski’s BE THE COWBOY, stream it now on Spotify™.” Cowboy boots scuffed up the L train. Grown men wore “Makeout Creek Parks & Tourism” sweatshirts (a reference to Mitski’s third record, Bury Me at Makeout Creek) in eighty degree weather. And… Read More

Album Review: Lavender, by Half Waif

Listening to Lavender is like reading a fantasy novel. Nandi Plunkett—A.K.A. Half Waif—crafts haunting melodies that suspend you in a dusky dreamworld.

We follow her as she drifts between coasts, exploring the complications… Read More

Interview: Eric Benoit on finding inspiration in trauma

On a guitar rich in bass tones and coated with tasteful reverb, Eric Benoit conjures a series of gentle arpeggios, punctuating them with a few well-placed harmonics. Then, with his lilting tenor, he carries us through simple, evocative lyrics: “I’ve never been to New Mexico / Never seen the canyons there / But I open… Read More

WRMC’s 2017 Year in Review

Here lies 2017, the year she told you not to worry about. And look what came of it: 2017 took your net neutrality, brought Charles Murray to campus, and made your annoying twelve-year-old cousin Bitcoin rich. And what’s your consolation prize? A fidget spinner in your stocking and tide pods for Christmas dinner. More seriously—2017… Read More
