The Fishing Journal Back at It

Written by on 2013/11/13 in Concert Previews with 0 Comments

Their name might suggest something intrinsically calming, but The Fishing Journal is anything but. The trios late 2012 Ditch EP is an aggressive barrage of guitar, drums, and bass, crashing through six thick songs with little time for the listener to come up for air. Their live show is an equal onslaught of  dimed fuzz and […]

WUSC Wednesdays: Typhoon

Written by on 2013/11/13 in New Music, WUSC Wednesdays with 0 Comments

Every once in a while, an album comes into the hands of WUSC that continues to receive just as many spins during the personal time of DJs as it receives on the air, even long after it has been phased out of rotation. Released August 20, Typhoon’s White Lighter is still carrying buzz in the station. Varying […]

Boreal Sons: An Interview

Written by on 2013/11/11 in Interviews with 0 Comments

Recently, I interviewed Evan Acheson, the lead singer and piano player of Calgary, Canada-based band Boreal Sons. He was a lovely man and we chatted about haters, their new album, and maple syrup (not sure if we actually talked about that but it was implied). I’m very excited to be interviewing you today. Especially because of […]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvqsr-Qs_F8 Cassie Posey of Signs of Iris is a cool ass chick.  She has pink ombre hair and I want to be her bestie.  None of this has any bearing or relevance on the matter at hand, I just needed to get that off my chest before I proceed.  What we are here to discuss […]

(Link to pt. 1) Sunday nights are accompanied by a feeling so particular that you could bottle it and sell as a brand of spectacularly unpopular cologne. Full week ahead looming, I reluctantly place my head upon my pillow, closing my eyes and the relatively stress-free chapter of my life that the particular weekend brought […]

Mountain Oasis 2013 Superlatives

Written by on 2013/11/06 in Mountain Oasis with 0 Comments

Mountain Oasis 2013 offered a stunning array of acts and I entered the weekend determined to catch as many as possible.  The relatively close proximity of all of the venues, coupled with somewhat spotty attendance over the course of the weekend made this an easy goal to achieve.  As a result, I saw the fewest […]

WUSC Wednesdays: An Introduction

I’d like to first start by introducing myself- my name is Kate and I hail from the gem among cornfields that is Chicagoland. As the Station a Manager and a DJ for WUSC, my taste and understanding of music has grown exponentially since I first came to Columbia and was introduced to college radio in […]

[Show Journal] A Night at the Music Farm with Built To Spill

Written by on 2013/11/06 in Show Journal, Show Reviews with 0 Comments

Last Tuesday Built To Spill played at downtown Charleston’s Music Farm with support from Genders and Slam Dunk. Genders started out with a bang, bringing their Portland-based rock and roll sound to the Holy City. I’m usually pretty skeptical about opening bands, but Genders far exceeded my expectations. They sound a bit progressive, but there’s […]

Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit 2013 in Review

Written by on 2013/11/05 in Mountain Oasis with 0 Comments

Having some time to reflect on the first annual Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit I’d say it was a success. As with Moogfest in years prior there were several lineup changes leading up to the festival. Many of the artists who dropped (Delorean, Superhumanoids, Big Black Delta) were the ones I wanted to see most, […]

  The bespectacled roadie looked over us with a gaze that seemed to penetrate deeply into our extra-dimensional selves. “You. Horse,” he declared, throwing a horse costume at my friend, Lee. “Elephant,” as Rupert caught the ridiculous elephant outfit out of the air. Finally I was bestowed with my alternate persona, and as I held […]

#TwitterThursday HALLOWEEN SPECIAL

Written by on 2013/10/31 in News, Twitter Thursday with 0 Comments

Do you remember Halloween Specials on family sitcoms when you were younger?  My favorite was always Growing Pains.  One time they had one where the urban legend of the girl ghost on the side of the road situation REALLY happened to Mike.  Oh man, that was the best.  If you were born after 1992, you […]

Help Kickstart The Lovely Few’s Upcoming Release

Written by on 2013/10/23 in News with 0 Comments

I’ve noticed over the years that successful Kickstarter campaigns usually work one of two ways. Either it’s funded right off the bat, or it’s funded at the last-minute. The Lovely Few’s new album The Geminids is looking for a big second half push. The Geminids album will close out The Lovely Few’s meteor series, with […]
