35 Albums We Can’t Wait To Hear This Fall

Dear WRMC community, Well, summer’s drawing to a close. You know what that means: freshmen are wandering all over Middlebury’s campus with a lost look in their eyes, unaware that they’ll be sick of paninis by next week and confused as to why there are no books in Starr Library and why their rooming assignment… Read More

Interview with Conduits

I recently had a conversation with Jenna Morrison, lead singer of the Omaha-based band Conduits. We talked about the formation of the hazy, shoegazy quintet, and their debut, self-titled LP, released this past March. We also touched on bringing the raw energy of live performance to the recording studio, and an epic Godspeed You Black… Read More

News: Beastie Boys sue energy drink company; irony ensues

When Adam Yauch, aka MCA of the ’90s frat-rap icons the Beastie Boys, died earlier this year, he left  a clause in his will prohibiting the use of Beastie Boys songs in advertisements. Now the Boys are suing Monster Energy, a sports drink company, for using 26 Beastie Boys tracks in an advertising campaign this… Read More

Moscow feminist punk band Pussy Riot on trial for being total BAMFs

The riot-grrrl-influenced Moscow feminist punk band, Pussy Riot, have been longtime anti-Putin (above, heeeeyyy) activists. Today, three of the band’s members go on trial for charges of hooliganism, facing up to seven years in jail each. Why were they arrested? Probably has something to do with standing outside the famous Moscow Cathedral of Christ the… Read More

Animal Collective Radio goes live…TONIGHT

In partnership with the Creators Project (who can do no wrong!) and their label Domino Records, Animal Collective are for a limited time hosting the aptly named Animal Collective Radio, featuring DJ sets from the four band members: Panda Bear, Avey Tare, Deakin, and Geologist — all of whom, might I remind you, are very well-versed in pop,… Read More

Download: Crystal Castles’ new single, "Plague"

The antagonistic, melancholy, forever strobe-lit NYC electro duo Crystal Castles are back with a new 7″ single, “Plague” (that’s the New Order-indebted cover art below). It’s presumably from their upcoming album, which follows 2010’s acclaimed self-titled sophomore effort. “Plague” is Crystal Castles in top form: Ethan Kath layers looped monster-movie moans, a church choir sample… Read More

Watch/Listen: Cross Record, "Cups In The Sink"

Never heard of Cross Record? Well, neither have most others, but hopefully that’ll change soon. On new single “Cups In The Sink,” Maine-based art-school grad Emily Cross sings in a gorgeous, unaffected tone, rightly compared to Cat Power’s Chan Marshall and Lower Dens’ Jana Hunter in her press kit. When surrounded by a dark, intoxicating… Read More

Track/Video Premiere: Bat For Lashes, "Laura" (NSFW)

The renowned contemporary photographer Ryan McGinley, best known for his images of buck-naked young adults running amok in the wilderness, is the artist behind the cover art (above) for The Haunted Man, the new album by Pakistan-born British solo artist/Kate Bush devotee Natasha Khan, aka Bat For Lashes. The greyscaled cover sure is lovely, but… Read More
