Yay...Valentines Week...

Feb 12, 2018

As you all know, this is Valentines day week. Just a reminder to everyone, if you haven't gotten your significant other anything, at this point you are probably screwed. Here are some songs to distract them while you make your escape. 

 

Dillon Francis - Bootleg Fireworks (Burning Up)

For those of you familiar with Dillion Francis, you can expect a great song with a video that quickly turns into an acid trip.

If you like: Flux Pavilion, EDM with dub step elements

 

The Correspondents - Fear & Delight

Mr. Bruce and DJ Chucks are brilliant and in full form for this one. Mr. Bruce has so much energy...

If you like: Caravan Palace, Parov Stellar, blends of old style with new electronic elements

 

Tame Impala - The Less I Know The Better

We play this song every now and then, you should see how crazy the video is as well. Hopefully a butt does not offend anyone...

If you like: Alt-J, Foxygen, a sweet bass line

 

The Devil Makes Three - All Hail

This quickly became one of my favorite bands when I stumbled across them

If you like: The Dead South, Trampled by Turtles, just good simple live folk/bluegrass music

 

Cool Patrol - NSP

*WARNING* CONTAINS VERY BAD ADVICE 

If you like: Parody songs, humor, gratuitous internet celebrity cameos

 

Awesome new band The

Love these guys. Go check em out on Spotify and listen for them on WWSU 106.9 FM.

 

 

 

And we're off...

Jan 23, 2018

We're getting nice and comfortable into the semester now. I'm starting to realize that the classes I'm taking are going to be nuts this semester. So, in the spirit of trying to get away from reality I present to you a sampling of videos that took reality, introduced itself, and then promptly turned into fire breathing squirrel that kidnapps children to work on a nut farm. 

 

Vitas - 7th Element

 

Wow Russia. Don't change...

If you like: Electronic with the backing vocals of a turkey.

 

Ramona Falls - I Say Fever

 

Such a great song set to...a love story?...a murder story?

If you like: Heavy beat with a hauting piano up front.

 

Flux Pavilion & Dillon Francis - I'm The One

 

Ah yes. This happens to me every time I have to cat sit for someone. Thats why I always have an ax.

If you like: Crazy electronic with dubstep beats.

 

 

Blockhead - The Music Scene

 

I'm sure there is a deep meaning to this video, but I'm too busy vomiting rainbows to figure it out.

If you like: Melencholy electronica.

 

 

Welcome Back!

Jan 12, 2018

I know everyone is super excited to start back to school in the new year! Hopefully the holiday season was enjoyable or at least bearable. I started a new tradition of watching the movie "Krampus" for Christmas. I can't wait until next year when my nieces are old enough to watch it! They'll be the most knowledgable children in their pre-school.

Rob Cantor - Shia LaBeouf Live

 

Only person scarier than Krampus....

If you like: Catching broadway style musicals, ballet, serial killers? 

 

Seth Augustus - To The Pouring Rain

 

Seth Augustus sounds like he has been drinking bourbon daily since birth and I love it.

If you like: Weird folky music, Tom Waits

 
Rammstein - Ich Tu Dir Weh

 

Does this German metal band really need to be introduced. Fun Fact: The lead singer actually had a cable and light pierced through his cheek just for this video...gross.

If you like: Eisbrecher, Psychostick, Rob Zombie

 
 
Tally Hall - Good Day
 
 

This video must have taken forever to make. This is probabyl one of the most cheery songs I've posted so far.

If you like: Indie Acoustics music, it's hard to explain Tally Hall

 
 
 
C.W. Stoneking -The Love Me Or Die
 

This guy sounds super old and I think he is only in his mid 40's. This is what I would call New Orleans folk.

If you like: Chris Black, Dave Van Ronk, R.L. Burnside

 

See you next week!

 

Merry Christmas Everyone

Dec 22, 2017

I hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas break. Here's a few more videos for you to enjoy.

 

Psychostick in the style of Rammstein - Oh Tannenbaum

A little Psychostick to get you in the Christmas spirit

If you like: Rammstein, Psychostick, a little humor with your metal

 

Mint Royal - Blue Song

Fun fact, this video was written and directed by Edgar Wright. If this looks familiar to a certain recent movie of his ("Cough" Baby Driver "Cough")  that's because it was sort of the seed.

If you like: British electronic funk, celebrity cameos

 

Sir Sly - High

If you haven't noticed I like weird music videos.

If you like: Kind of reminds me of a more electronic Foster the People

 

DJ Shadow - Nobody Speak feat. Run The Jewels
WARNING: A LOT OF LANGUAGE. This is how I imagine issues will be solved in American politics in a few years

If you like: Old school rap back and forth battles

 
 
 

Have a Great Break!

Dec 15, 2017

Thank goodness this semester is finally over!!! I truly didn't think I would live through finals week. Hopefully, we all made it through okay.

For those of you who would like something new to listen to, I hope to update this blog every week with some of the new stuff that has crossed my path. So keep coming back for more! Maybe you'll find that next new great band.

 

Miike Snow - Genghis Khan

The video is awesome, think Cold War era James Bond thriller meets West Side Story. 

If you like: Portugal. The Man, Alt Indie with Electronic elements

 

The Dead South - In Hell I'll Be In Good Company

If you haven't heard of this band yet and you love folk or modern bluegrass music you need to look at these guy. 

If you like: Trampled by Turtles, The Devil Makes Three

 

The Tibbs - Lies

The Tibbs is a super under rated band that you've never heard of. Their music has so much soul.

If you like: Adele, Sharon Jones (Check out the new Sharon Jones Album too!)

 

Wild Child - Crazy Bird

This may be the most hipster music video I've ever seen. Love this song, love this band. If you like their music, they are coming out with new album "Expectations" February 9!!!

If you like: Of Monsters and Men, Blind Pilot. Low key Indie Folk 

 

clipping. - Work Work (feat. Cocc Pistol Cree)

Clipping doesn't get enough recognition. He is a master at blending rap with electronic/industrial music. Just a head's up, this song contains some colorful language.

If you like: Rap that is different from the norm.

 

Check back next week for more and have a wonderful break!

Michael O'Leary

School is getting ready to start...

Aug 14, 2017

School is getting ready to start in a few weeks but don't worry here are the newest tracks that we are rocking to help you ease your stress about starting school! Toro Y Moi  One of the defining artists of the “chillwave sound,” Toro yMoihas long expertly blended immersive synthesizer textures with ear-worm R&B hooks, and his forthcoming record, Boo Boo, proves to be no exception. Toro y Moi’s recent breakup informs the record with a sort of solitary melancholy, providing his funky, ethereal songs...

French Montana newest album jungle rules is the perfect album to end your summer and if you were to feeling good about yourself. The song "Bring Dem Things" is one of the best songs of the year in my opinion but you have to be the judge don't say I didn't warn you...

Arcade Fire is a very funky groove album the Canadian, seminal indie-rock band is back with their fifth studio album and it's some of their best work yet - every song is a jam!

Kickback and Chill Playlist

Aug 03, 2017

We have created a Kickback and Chill Playlist with our favorite tracks so you can end your summer right!

Wanna relax after a long day of class? Go ahead, check them out below.

Love this playlist? Send a song request on wwsu1069.org and hear it over the air!

  • Short Moscato - Whisper (Disappear) / Suicide Hotline Bling
    Short Moscato is a hip hop artist who has been described as golden age ethereal and psychedelic boom bap with new school overtones. His flow and sharp lyrics are definitely worth the listen to.  
         
  • Mansa - Uncomfortable
    Mansa, formerly under the name Moniker Manni Phantom describes “Uncomfortable” as a song about his experience of life in the fast lane and how out of place he feels in it all.  This song doesn’t receive nearly as much recognition as it deserves.
     
  • ZHU - Faded (ODESZA Remix)
    Steven Zhu is a Chinese American singer who focuses on electronic music.  “Faded” tells the story of being helpless and just wanting to go back to the person you call home.  
     
  • Haux - Seaside
    In Seaside Haux sings about taking a leap of faith to leave the past behind for a beautiful rebirth.  The haunting vocals and subtle instruments create the perfect relaxing vibe.
     
  • Y.V.E 48 - Nothing to Say
    Not only is this a perfect song to kick back to but the vocals softly express the feeling of being ignored and the roller-coaster of frustrations it brings.  
     
  • Billie Ellish - Ocean Eyes
    Once you hear this song definitely give a few of the remixes of “Ocean Eyes” a try, if you’re a fan of Blackbear listen to their recreation of melody.
     
  • Haux - Caves
    “Ethereal vocals and subdued guitars with lyrics reminiscent of folklore to create an atmosphere that feels almost like flying” -The Wild Honey Pie

Aug 03, 2017

Welcome to the Sports department at WWSU 106.9 FM! Here, you can listen to and read about Wright State games broadcasted by your fellow Raiders. In 2016, the Raiders made a huge impact in multiple sports, which WWSU covered on the radio waves. We covered Men’s soccer making it to the Horizon League Championship finals, Women’s basketball setting a record winning streak that led to an NIT tournament appearance, and Steven Davis participating in the NCAA Slam Dunk Contest. WWSU was there with microphones ready and a dedication to bringing you quality Raider sports coverage. As time goes on and schedules for the sports seasons are released, we will announce our sports broadcast line-up as well as other WWSU involvement with Raider Sports. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. And check back with us on the latest when the sports seasons begin.

Until then, GO RAIDERS.
