Album of the Week April 16, 2019

Apr 16, 2019

Here in the music department, we get a lot of submissions. Check out some of our favorite songs and albums in case you missed them on the air!


Album: “Mystic Truth"

Artist: Bad Suns

Genre: Rock


The Bad Suns are back and grittier and more harmonic than ever. The Cali rockers debut album Mystic Truth hit the shelves March 22 and is the most complex Bad Suns project to date. “One Magic Moment” - the single off this LP came out a few weeks earlier and had the same sing-songy undertone that had been the Bad Suns signature sound since they first garnered attention for their cuts such as “Cardiac Arrest” and then later with poetic anthems such “Heartbreaker” and “Swimming in the Moonlight”. But this song had something different, more of a guitar base and a harder feel. But somehow the Suns made even a mildly more alternative single feel light as a feather. Harmonies grace the choruses and the folky slap-clap rhythm pulsates through the song. This can be seen as a motif throughout the album – starting off fittingly with “Away We Go” which sends out early 2000s alternative vibes, and “A Miracle, A Mile Away” which even gave the group a U2 feel. Songs like “Hold Your Fire” and “Starjumper” come off as ballads which are somewhat of a rarity for the group. So give Mystic Truth a listen – it’s the Bad Suns serenading your ears like never before.

Song: “Avalanche"

Artist: Bad Sounds

Genre: Rock


If you’re looking for a band that blends old alternative influences into something fresh, I highly recommend checking out this little British band called Bad Sounds. They released their debut album, “Get Better,” last year, and one of my favorite songs on it is “Avalanche.” The bass and guitar riffs permeating the entire song are reminiscent (but not derivative) of early 2000’s bands such as The Strokes and Interpol. On top of that, peppered in are these lovely synthesizer layers that immediately make me think of New Wave bands from the 80s (Depeche Mode and New Order in particular). Even if you’ve never heard of these bands before and have no idea what I’m talking about, “Avalanche” will hook you in no matter what, so give it a listen.

Bad Sounds - Avalanche

Song of the Week

Here in the music department, we get a lot of submissions. Check out some of our favorite songs in case you missed them on the air!


Song: “Like Nothing"

Artist: Telekinesis

Genre: Rock


“Like Nothing” is the kind of song you listen to when you’re trying your best not to stress yourself out. “I was coming back from coming undone,” sings lead singer and multi-instrumentalist Micheal Lerner over a wandering, 60s-influenced guitar riff. The chorus feels cathartic and soothing without losing any of its rock edge. Sit back, listen to this gem, and feel a little less stressed.

WWSU Heads to Indiana – Young the Giant!

Feb 28, 2019

Young the Giant Concert


Three months ago, I had never heard of Young the Giant. It wasn’t until a friend of mine introduced me to the Los Angeles alternative group on Spotify that I really fell in love with their music. I clicked through tracks such as “My Body” and “Amerika” and I was hooked. Fortunately, at the time that I was delving into their discography, they were on tour. Unfortunately for me, the closest stop was a three-hour drive from where I was.

So, last Thursday afternoon I made the hike up to Purdue University to see the L.A. rockers. The venue was large, but not extremely conducive for the type of jump up and dance band that Young the Giant had proven that they were. The show opened with a cut off their most recent album Mirror Master then followed by an enthusiastic rendition of “Something to Believe In”. Song after song, lead singer Sameer Gadhia enthusiastically belted the lyrics to tracks like “Titus Was Born” and “Apartment” while a rocking tempo pulsated through the auditorium. The band itself was great, I have no complaints there.

The only thing that I would have changed about my experience was what I mentioned earlier – the venue. The tight, classically-built theater chairs didn’t enable any movement that has proved essential for so many concerts of this genre. The crowd simply wasn’t into it and wasn’t able to be. It wasn’t until the latter half of the performance that the band played their most popular hit “Cough Syrup” and the throng of college students all joined in on the chorus – one of the only times in the show most of the crowd was involved.

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the set – a solid 9/10 music-wise, proving once again that it is always better to see your favorite bands live in concert, there simply isn’t anything like it. And to Young the Giant, I’ll see you in June with Fitz and the Tantrums and COIN!

Sam Smith is Back - With a New Sound

Jan 17, 2019
Sam Smith, Normani - Dancing With A Stranger (Official Audio)

When Sam Smith came out with his first solo song since his second album (a quietly uplifting ballad for the Watership Down Soundtrack), I didn’t think much of it. Artists do songs for soundtracks all the time; it doesn’t mean they necessarily have anything else in the works. I woke up this morning to “Dancing With A Stranger,” a smooth, rhythmic R&B-inflected Pop song that compels you dance away any thoughts of your past relationships. “Look what you made me do/I’m with somebody new,” Smith duets with Normani (formerly of Fifth Harmony). The song is a change of pace from the soul of his first two albums, moving Smith into a more Pop-oriented territory. I haven’t heard heartbreak sound this refreshing in a while, and I’m excited for what he’ll do next.

Aretha Franklin: America’s Soul

WWSU remebers the Queen of Soul
Aug 20, 2018

This week, we mourn the loss of the ‘Queen of Soul’ and R&B pioneer, Aretha Franklin. Franklin passed away Thursday morning, August 16th at the age of 76. Franklin was surrounded by family and friends in her Detroit home, her publicist announced. The “Rock Steady” singer had been battling pancreatic cancer off & on since 2010. Aretha Franklin is best known for her contributions to the R&B/Soul genre during the 60s-70s and became the first woman to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Franklin was also known for her contributions as a civil rights activists. Rolling Stone ranked Aretha Franklin #1 out of 100 on their Greatest Singers of All Time list.

Aretha Franklin

Using God’s Gift

Aretha Franklin began her singing career as a teenager singing gospel hymns at New Bethel Baptist Church in Detroit Michigan where her father ministered.  Franklin's father would start managing her and bringing Franklin on the road with him on “gospel caravan” tours where she’d sing for other churches. Aretha signed her first recording deal with JVB Records and released her first album, “Songs of Faith” in 1956. At the transitional age of 16, she toured with Dr. Martin Luther King and sang for him as he spoke in different cities.

During a trip to California, she met R&B crooner, Sam Cooke, who then inspired her to begin recording secular pop music. Franklin moved to New York to begin her pop music career with Columbia Records. After a flopping six years with Columbia, she then made the move to Atlantic Records—and nothing was ever the same...

In April 1967, Atlantic issued Aretha a cover version of Otis Redding’s “Respect”, which became an unexpected success. “Respect” quickly became #1 on both the Pop and R&B charts. The song was later coined as her signature song and also served as an anthem for the Civil Rights & feminist movements.

Aretha landed two more top-ten hits within the same year: “Baby I Love You” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman”.

By February 1968, Franklin had earned her first two Grammy’s, including the debut category Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, and was coined the Sound of Soul by TIME Magazine.


Civil Rights Activism

Besides her larger-than-life music career, Aretha also played an integral part in the Civil Rights Movement, using her platforms to advocate for racial equality. Her parents were close friends with Dr. Martin Luther King opened the doors for fighting for justice early. She was also mentored by the late, great Mahalia Jackson, Queen of Gospel and noted civil rights activist.

One of the most prominent examples of her activism was her determination to free revolutionary and scholar, Angela Davis from prison in 1970. Davis was a member of the Communist Party, an advocate for Black liberation and a women’s rights activist; she was accused of assisting a courtroom takeover gone wrong that ended in four deaths and was sent to prison for murder, kidnapping, and conspiracy charges. Angela Davis was later acquitted of all charges. Below is a screenshot of a Black Weekly Jet Magazine article that is evidence about her wanting to pay Davis's bond.

Aretha Franklin remarks in the Jet Magazine


Aretha Franklin’s musical career has spanned over six decades (which has earned her 18 Grammy’s— OK SIS!). This gem has been described as “the voice of the civil rights movement”, “the voice of Black America”, and a “symbol of black equality”. The Queen even has an ASTEROID named after her (Asteroid 249516 Aretha, Google it). She earned her Hollywood Walk of Fame star early in the game (1979) and in 1985, she had her voice declared by the State of Michigan as a “natural resource”. Aretha was also an honorary member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.


An all-star tribute to celebrate Aretha Franklin’s contributions to music is scheduled to happen on November 14th, 2018 at Madison Square Garden.


“Being a singer is a natural gift. It means I'm using to the highest degree possible the gift that God gave me to use. I'm happy with that.”

Rest in Power, Queen

Adios 2018 Spring Semester and winter finally.

Apr 23, 2018

Spring semester is finally coming to a close. Did it seem fast? I feel like I never really got my footing and I've been falling down a flight of steps ever since. Anyway, I hope everyone has a great finals week and for those of you who have somehow gotten out of taking their finals this week, we hate you and you are monsters, that is all.


Mystery Skulls - Ghost

The video for this song is fantastically done, but really sad if you pay attention to the story. I think it does a great job with comunicating the feeling that the song is trying to give. This is a song that when I first heard it, it was like I couldn't listen to it loud enough...good thing I'm already slightly deaf...There is an instance of the f-word in this songs, so if that is too much for your fragile psyche, find a clean version or move on.

If you like: Studio Killers, Caravan Palace, Really any electronica with a heavy beat


Kiesza - Hideaway

This song is kind of hard to catogorize. It's electronic but also pretty poppy with a smidgin of 90's style. The video is also fun to watch.

If you like: electronic pop , the 90's


Primus - Wynona's Big Brown Beaver

Okay, I know it sounds like an inuendo, BUT it is not... I think. I dunno watch video, it's creepy and funny and Primus is always great. 

If you like: Faith no More, Tomahawk, Ween


Beth Orton - 1973

I must be in an electropop mood this week. This is another instance where electronica and pop can blend together into something beautiful and hypnotic.

If you like: Suzanne Vega, Cowboy Junkies, Martha Wainwright


The xx - Islands

This is a beautiful song with a beautifully well done video. It's like the same 15 seconds over and over again but slightly different every time it repeats. 

If you like: Alt-J, Metronomy, smooth indie


Good luck everyone!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Mar 16, 2018

As I am sure you are all aware, tomorrow is St. Patrick's day, a day that everybody uses as an excuse to drink Irish booze and wear green. I like to celebrate by making some of the more traditional Irish cuisine like my famous lamb's head stew with plenty of root vegetables. Delicious, as long as you don't mind spitting out the teeth as they tend to fall out during the cooking process. I may be making it again tomorrow if I can find me a decent lamb head from Jungle Jim's, either way I will be eating a potato and drinking whiskey like I do pretty much every Saturday like a proper Irishman! Whatever your poison, be safe out there and don't be stupid...well not too stupid anyway. Here are some songs to get you ready.


Darby O'Gill - Finnegan's Wake

A beautiful song about the frailties of life interspersed with a bar full of drunk Irish hecklers. Buckle up, I have another from Darby O'Gill next...


Darby O'Gill - The Rattlin' Bog

No squirrels allowed!


The Dubliners - Rocky Road To Dublin

Working at a theater makes you hate the music in the after credits of a movie because you have to hear it like a million times. This was in the credits for the second Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes film and I went out of my to get to clean the theater so I could listen to this.


Irish Rovers - Drunken Sailor

This is one of those Irish songs I'm sure you've heard a million times. Fun fact, the Irish Rovers also sing a song about why there aren't any more unicorns. I refuse to post that song though so you'll have to dig it up yourselves.


Da Vinci's Notebook - Another Irish Drinking Song

An acapella take on the sad Irish ballads we're all used to. *tear*


Something to make you laugh.

Scene from "The Other Guys"

The Other Guys - Will Ferrel Singing
Something my family has always said. It's a prayer but it's  a good sentiment all the same.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.


Have a good week!


Spring Break...I miss you...

Mar 07, 2018

I don't know about you but I think Spring Break could have been long. I don't want to be greedy but I was thinking only like three more weeks, that's it...maybe five. Anyway we're back and we gotta get back in the swing of things. Here are some new videos to maybe help make it seem not so bad.


Run The Jewels - Meowpurrdy

Okay, I will have to give you guys a warning on this one. Yes there is a little bit of colorful language in this song, yes it can sound sort of aggressive and yes there is a worm cat vomiting a bunch of cats....Happy Nightmares mwhaha.

If you like: Del The Funky Homosapian, Open Mike Eagle, Doomtree


AronChupa - Little Swing ft. Little Sis Nora

I think if you haven't noticed by now, I love electro-swing. This is one of those kinds of songs though that I honestly hated at first. But then that beat got stuck in my head and I fell in love with it. if you like this one, check out some of the other AronChupa stuff.

If you like: The Correspondents, Caravan Palace, Albatraoz


Xilent - Boss Wave

This has a great dub step beat while incorporating sounds of video games past. Listening to this gives a great sense of nostalgia, walking into an arcade and hearing all of the machines going at once...I'm not old YOUR OLD!

If you like: Brythonic, Skim, Terracotta


They Might Be Giants - The Greatest

"They Might Be Giants" is one of those classic bands that continues to but out consistently great albums and influence many modern day artists. Of course this song is further aided by the inclusion of Nick Overman and... something else going on. Whatever it is, it's kinda terrifying and awesome.

If you like: Ben Folds Five, The Presidents of the United States, Cake


Tom Waits - Going Out West

Okay, Tom Waits is one of my favorite musicians of all time. You may recognize him from his acting roles in the past but he has been making music his way for a long time. Everything from Jazz to Rock to ....whatever you'd call his other stuff, he has been playing what he wants. He is another one of those artists that you don't know you know until you start delving more into his discography. His influence in music as an art form cannot be understated.

If you like: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Leonard Cohen, Elvis Costello


If your in need of a good laugh, check out the videos below

Julian Smith - Eat Randy


Julian Smith- Never Get Naked in Your Shower


Catch you guys next time!


Spring Break Finally!

Feb 23, 2018

Thank goodness for Spring Break. It is always timed perfectly for when I am just beginning to give up hope. I hope everyone is doing something fun for their break. Not going to Daytona Beach or Miami or whatever you crazy kids do these days *shakes cane at angrily*. No I'm talking about real fun like sleep and....sleep. I really just want to sleep! Anyway, here are some more songs to either put you to sleep or get you in a party mood, I'm not judging *judges silently*.


Mr. Bungle - Pink Cigarette

This is the original project for Faith No More's lead singer Mike Patton. He has one of the widest vocal ranges in existence at 6 octaves. For some perspective, an 88 key piano has 7 octaves. He was also the voice of the Darkness in the video games of the same name...NO YOU LOVE MIKE PATTON!!!

If you like: Estradesphere, Faith no More, Primus


Coheed and Cambria - Mother Superior (Nervous Energies session)

I love Coheed and Cembria. From their unique style of music to the crazy comic books they put out that tie into their music. This is certainly a band that deserves a little more recognition than they receive. This is a live version they recorded (In a shoe store?) of their song "Mother Superior" and, in my opinion, the best version. Plus, that hair man...just look at it...

If you like: The Deer Hunter, sweet live acoustical guitar

Wintergatan - Marble Machine
I an an electrical and computer engineering major here at Wright State. I am also obsessed with music in a mad scientist sort of way. Wintergatan tends to make a great deal of their instruments, and they keep getting better and better. I've built a couple of basic amplifiers and speakers and such here and there but this is a whole new level. I'M NOT JEALOUS YOU'RE JEALOUS!
If you like: Fine tuned melodic engineering insanity and lots and lots of metal balls
Caravan Palace - Lone Digger
Electro-swing has been around as a genre for quite awhile now. Caravan Palace I feel has been one of the first bands to truly fine tune and perfect the genre. This song is a great example with a beautifully well done animated video. 
If you like: Earlier stuff from The Correspondent, Parov Stelar, Caro Emerald
2CELLOS - Thunderstruck
This is a cover of the song "Thunderstruck" originally by ACDC...with two guys playing cellos... I know, I know what your saying, "You call yourself a Master of Music, a Tyrant of Tunnage, a Negative Nancy and you dare have two guys covering a song as epic as Thunderstruck with nothing but a pair of glorified super violins on your blog!". To that I must quote the master of not giving a crap,
 Image result for yeah well that's your opinion man gif
Also if you're in the need of a does of funny check this out. Warning contains some language and insinuations that a certain assassination may not have gone the way we've been told....
Whitest Kids U' Know: Abe Lincoln

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


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!

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...

  • 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
