Queen B. Interview

Thursday, March 13th, 2014 by Rachel

QueenB smallKat and Rae sat down with QueenEarth, Janice B. and their producer Maurice, who collectively make up QueenB. on February 18th. The talented two piece band puts out harmonious, acoustic tracks that combine  guitar, beautiful vocals and rap. Their songs preach love and acceptance, and are chill-inducing. QueenEarth is a WLOY alum, being a former DJ and staffer, so this visit wasn’t her first rodeo. The interview was laugh filled, and we even learned where their cupcakes allegiance lay. (more…)

What Is The WLOY Staff Listening To?

Thursday, March 13th, 2014 by Billy Dries

Unknown Kate Marshall – Soko – “We Might Be Dead By Tomorrow” – I Thought I Was An Alien
I was watching this really endearing video of 20 strangers that were paired up to kiss for the first time (trust me, you don’t get second hand embarrassment that you assume would come with watching that…check it out here​) and about 30 seconds in, this hauntingly beautiful song chimes in with the line “if you’re not ready for love, how can you be ready for life” and I was instantly hooked to this french singer/songwriter. Paired with the video, the videographer and artist created such a charming and intimate moment I wasn’t really expecting at all.

Young The Giant at Rams Head Live!

Friday, February 28th, 2014 by Rachel

photo 4On February 25th, in the year 2014, year of the horse, I had the pleasure of seeing Young the Giant. The Northern California band, Cayucas, opened for them, and they were pretty groovy. When Young the Giant and front man Sameer Gadhia took the stage, all bets were off at their sold out show. They opened with “Anagram,” their first full length track on their sophomore album, Mind Over Mind. They played a good combination of songs off both Mind Over Matter and Young The Giant which gave the crowd room to sing and dance along. If you’ve never been to a YTG concert and been able to experience Sameer on stage first hand, you’re truly missing a valuable life experience. He is electric on stage and so much fun to watch. You can see how much he enjoys their music, the way he bops around stage and engages the crowd. At one point, Sameer took the fedora of an audience member and danced around stage wearing it, followed by a performance with a cowbell. They also had an amazing light show happening synced with every song. After their “exit” from stage, the crowd burst into a “one more song” chant until they returned to the stage to play a few more. They ended their 3 song encore with their classic from their first album, “My Body.” It was the perfect song to end the night with, as the entire crowd sang along in musical harmony. If you have the chance to see them in the future, do not pass it up!

What Is The WLOY Staff Listening To This Week?

Thursday, February 27th, 2014 by Billy Dries

3724697Leslie Weis – 5 Seconds of Summer – 
More accents and boybands!! Woohoo! This pop rock band, 5 Seconds of Summer, comprised of four adorable Aussies is pretty new to the scene and as well as millions of other girls all around the world, I’m obsessed. 5 Seconds of Summer began in December 2011 when Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford and Calum Hood joined together and started posting videos of themselves performing covers of popular songs to YouTube. A little bit later they were joined by drummer Ashton Irwin, and the current 5 Seconds of Summer lineup came to be. Last February, 5 Seconds of Summer announced that they’d be the opening act on One Direction’s worldwide arena tour and hysteria among all teenage girls immediately ensued. The boys are now currently signed to Capitol Records and are working on their debut album. Their new single, She Looks So Perfect​, has just made me even more addicted and it’s starting to become unhealthy and kind of scaring me.

Yeezus in the Charm City

Friday, February 21st, 2014 by Kathleen McKeveny

Written by: Jeremy Stephenson

With his first solo tour in five years, you know Mr. West rolled his sleeves up to make his Baltimore fans remember why he is the icon he is today. First of all, this concert and tour is nothing like any other rap tour or any tour for that matter to date. A tremendous 35 song set list including tracks from his latest, and sixth album, Yeezus, and even his inaugural decade old album, The College Dropout definitely had any Ye fan walking away with a nice “did I just see that!?” grin after the show.

The show kicked off with the unveiling of a massive mountain in the back of the stage, which followed with Kanye’s twelve dancers who were dressed in fully nude pantyhose, and were incorporated throughout the show’s entirety. Kanye then dramatically weaved his way through his girls and started with the first song off his Yeezus album, “On Sight.” (more…)
