Information Session Tonight

Hey everybody!

Are you interested in listening to CDs before they even hit stores from artists such as Vampire Weekend, Tedeschi Trucks Band, and The Civil Wars? Do you love the sound of your own voice and think others should hear it on the radio? Have you dreamed of expressing your musical tastes on the radio?

WUSO 89.1 FM is having an info session tonight from 8 – 9 pm in Shouvlin 105. WUSO’s executive board will be there to introduce you to all of the aspects of Wittenberg University’s radio station, answer your questions, and get your input of what you would like to hear on the station. We might even be giving you some WUSO swag!

Don’t worry if you don’t know exactly what you want to do with WUSO just yet – that is what this day is

Everyone is welcome to come! If you are a student, faculty member, staff member, or just a member of the Clark County community, you are encouraged to come to the meeting! We want to get input, radio show submissions, and CD reviews from everyone! We hope to see you there!

New Music Thursday!

The Chieftans- Voice of the Ages
Caity says: New takes on traditional Irish music! Incorporates artists from a variety of genres, including indie-rock, Americana, Scottish folk; just look at the list of featured artists!!! (Bon Iver, The Civil Wars, The Decemberists, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Paolo Nutini, Lisa Hannigan… to name a few.)

Down in the Willow Garden (featuring Bon Iver):

 

Hospitality- Hospitality
Mix with: Belle & Sebastian, Vampire Weekend
Caity says: Rich arrangements of keyboards, horns, synths, guitars, and a compelling female voice. Catchy pop aspects that encourage dancing.

Lana Del Rey- Born to Die
Caity says: Beautifully crafted pop songs, with 50s female vocals. Distinctive sound, but sometimes the melodramatic production is overwhelming.

 

Laura Gibson- La Grande
Mix with: Feist, The Decemberists
Kate says:  Nice folk-y female vocals. Well balances between slightly ambient/ airy and more fast paced.

Nada Surf- The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy
Mix with: Telekinesis, Band of Horses
Kate says: Sounds a lot like past Nada Surf, if a bit more upbeat. Fairly simple and catchy throughout.

Of Montreal- Paralytic Stalks
Mix with: Deerhunter, Passion Pit
Kate says: Good psychedelic-indie-pop with intriguing lyrics.
Caity says: It’s basically a hippie vomit up of all the drugs they’ve taken in their life.

Regeneration (multiple artists)
Steven says: Groovy contemporary music mixed with classics or classical music.

Sharon Van Etten- Tramp
Mix with: Neko Case, The National
Caity says: Hypnotic female vocals with a variety of instrumentation, with a sense of folk foundations and emotionally propelled rock aspects.

Serpents:

Terra Lightfoot- Terra Lightfoot
Mix with: Blind Pilot, Laura Veirs
Kate says: Folk/rock/pop singer songwriter. The best songs are where she successfully focuses within a genre, ie. the most strictly folk, rock, or pop tracks.
