New York: A Love Story

Friday, September 27th, 2013 by Joe Lomuti

Written By: Jordan Hernandez
Mack-Wilds-New-York-A-Love-StoryYoung, sexy, talented, and smooth are all words that can be used to describe new musical artist Mack Wilds. With an album set to hit stores on Monday, September 30, Mack Wilds is ready to wow fans for the first time as a rapper/ singer. Does the last name Wilds ring a bell? Mack, whose real first name is Tristian, started his career off as an actor. Working on top shows like the CWs 90210 and HBOs The Wire, Tristian showed his great range of acting ability and gathered a large fan base. Now, he is showcasing his tough rap flow along side his buttery smooth vocals on his first album New York: A Love Story.

The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013 by Joelle Hernandez

Justin-Timberlake-The-20_20-Experience-2-of-2-2013-1200x1200 It seems like 2013 has been the year of Justin Timberlake. With The 20/20 Experience hitting the top of every music chart ever created, The Legends of Summer Tour with Jay-Z selling out arenas across the country, and let’s not forget that killer VMA performance,


JT is unstoppable. But, just when you thought that was enough, he has released the highly anticipated 20/20 Experience 2 of 2. This album is very reminiscent of his NSYNC days. His “pop” foundation shines through in every song; including the slower ones like Amnesia. The heavy background vocals also contributes to the boy-band sound on this album. In true JT fashion, the album has only 11 tracks with only one song less than four minutes long. The last track “Not a Bad Thing” is 11 minutes and 28 seconds long. Justin Timberlake’s voice is just as smooth and incredible on this album as on any other album he has created in the past. The newlywed seems to still be using his marriage to actress Jessica Biel as inspiration with the love songs on this album. JT is, however, getting in touch with his inner bad boy with the language on this album. There are more expletives on this album than fans are used to hearing from America’s Prince of Pop. After listening to this album, there is no doubt that JT is hotter than ever! Tune in to A Double Dose of Entertainment on Fridays from 7-9pm to hear tracks from this album!

Top 40 for 2.27.13

Thursday, February 28th, 2013 by Eric Loose

936full-thom-yorkeLast week gave us m b v, and this week blesses us with Amok, the new album from Atoms of Peace. If you haven’t yet heard of them, it’s basically another vehicle for Radiohead-mastermind Thom Yorke to call his own. This time, he’s joined by Red Hot Chili Peppers’s bassist Flea, as well as a Radiohead produced, Beck’s drummer, and a Brazilian percussionist. The album has some sweet Brazilian vibes to it, and many have compared it to Thom Yorke’s other project, The Eraser. We highly recommend it if you’re into that kinda thing. Otherwise, enjoy spring break, WLOY listeners!

Local Natives- Hummingbird

Monday, February 25th, 2013 by Kathleen McKeveny

MI0003480976LA born and bred Local Natives’ 2010 debut album, Gorilla Manor, was defined by its vocal layering, choral “oh’s” and “ah’s”, and blisfully chaotic melodicism that landed them a spot in the “bands to watch”. Some people attributed the success of Gorilla Manor to a well-executed conglomeration of indie influences like Broken Social Scene, The National, or Grizzly Bear. As a result, the release of their sophomore album, Hummingbird, has been highly anticipated.

Hummingbird has been said to be Local Natives’ “do or die” opportunity to either mature their sound and solidify their spot in the indie world or retire to the proverbial land of misfit indie bands. (more…)

Top 40 for 2.20.13

Thursday, February 21st, 2013 by Eric Loose

my-bloody-valentine-mbv-608x605As you can see from scrolling dow nthe list, the Top 40 is home to a new #1 this week, from the shoegaze pioneers My Bloody Valentine (it’s a misnomer, don’t worry) and their new release m b v. Unfortunately, the artwork down there is incorrect, so instead it serves as our title picture for this week’s list. Listen to them if you like fuzzy guitars and walls of sound and inaudible mumbling!  (more…)

Lotte Kestner – The Bluebird of Happiness

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013 by Eric Loose

lotte-bluebird-300x150When a relatively unknown name strikes out on their own apart from their bandmates, the stage is set for what usually ends up as a more experimental shift. Understandably, the solo album is a template for the creative juices that couldn’t fit within the frames of the band’s construct. Personal interests and tendencies seep in, and you’re left with a clearer picture of the artist by themselves, unobstructed apart from compromise or settling. This is what makes (more…)
