Hey all you lovely Internet people! Wondering what’s new in WDCV’s heavy rotation? Well you’re in luck because the WDCV music directors have been busy little bees putting all sorts of new and great stuff in heavy rotation. So if you feel like your music collection is getting a little stale, check out some of these recommendations.
Drink Up Buttercup: Born and Thrown on A Hook-They are coming to DICKINSON in our Rock/Hop show!! They sound like The Beatles if they did more drugs. I’m not the only one who thinks so, honest.
Dark Dark Dark: Bright Bright Bright- Besides their awesome naming skills this is a super album with great vocals and complex chamber-pop instrumentals.
Bonobo: Black Sands- A super chill album with epic reach and massive emotional pull. It’s one guy who plays all the instruments by himself. (Written by another MD- Bonobos are monkeys that “penis fence” for real, look it up. I learned this in 9th grade bio).
Adam Green: Minor Love- Adam Green is from the group The Moldy Peaches comes out with a not so folky sound but it’s still pretty awesome- striking a good balance between tenderness and tastelessness.
Kasper Bjoke- Standing on Top of Utopia (EP): Solid downbeat electro from Denmark.
Portugal. The Man- American Ghetto: I have no idea who this sounds like, but it sounds like someone good so don’t be scared. Most of the songs are good so pick one!
Turin Brakes: Outbursts- Self proclaimed indie folk rock, but it’s not too folky I think they just call it that because some of the songs are pretty laid back. “Sea Changes” and “Mirror” are my favorite tracks of the album.
She + Him: Volume Two- I’m really excited about this album. I honestly like it better than their first one. It’s a peaceful kind of happy. You can’t go wrong with any track.
So that’s what we’ve got for you this week. Hopefully your willing to open up your ears to something new!
Hugs and Kisses,
