Late Night Concert: Thin Lips and Pompeii Graffiti 11/3/16

Friday, October 28th, 2016 by Cara Hullings

a0065309974_16WLOY is hosting a free late night concert this Thursday the 3rd in McGuire with Thin Lips and Pompeii Gaffiti. You can check Thin Lips out here and Pompeii Graffiti here. Both bands will have you jamming out to their indie rock beats.

Thin Lips, called “punk for your sensitive side” by SPIN Magazine blend indie-rock guitar with punk energy to create a unique sound perfect for some head nodding. The female-fronted, Philly native band has toured with some great bands, like Modern Baseball and Cayetana and are now stopping by McGuire.

Pompeii Graffiti, a local band from Annapolis offers up a more mellow sound for your Thursday. Formed during high school, this band has been playing together for years, developing into the artists they are today. Claiming they’re still the same dorky kids from when they started, this quintet blends indie rock with lo-fi. Come out to hear their cool originals, as well all the covers they love to play. Whether your taste is some hard riffs or some relaxing indie, between these two talented bands, there’s enough great tunes for everyone to enjoy!

Jakubi – Rock n’ Roll Hotel, DC 09/29/16

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016 by The Professor

jakubi-092916-jerome Words & Photos by Jeremy Stephenson
Hailing from the land down under, Jakübi is a five-piece band that is something entirely different from what you have been listening to. Comprised of five great guys who were all best of friends, actually family, before making music. There are the two brothers, Jerome (vocals and talkbox) and Jacob (bass and moog), the cousins, Adam (or Addzy, guitar) and Jesse (drums) and last but not least the mutual friend of everyone, Rob (guitar). Coming from relatively new beginnings, Jakübi released their first recorded song, “Can’t Afford it All” in 2013 and second, “Holiday” within three weeks of each other gaining more than a 100,000 listens on SoundCloud. Ever since those days of jamming for hours in their studio in Melbourne, Jakübi has been gaining a formidable following in both America and Australia. Recently signing to Epic Records in 2015, Jakübi released their first EP, 61 Barkley (the address of where they recorded their first songs) headlined by their single “Nobody Better”. (more…)

Album Review: Slaughter Beach, Dog-Welcome

Thursday, October 13th, 2016 by Cara Hullings

a3068096723_16

Review by Stephen Vanyo

Slaughter Beach, Dog– Welcome

Released: September 30th 2016

Rate: 8.2/10

Slaughter Beach, Dog has just come out with their debut full length “Welcome” which you can purchase now from Lame-O Records. Slaughter Beach, Dog is the side project of Modern Baseball’s Jake Ewald. Previous efforts from Ewald under this moniker include a demo EP called Dawg which he released through his own label Family Dinner. Ewald has always embodied his music with a “Do it Yourself” attitude and this record is no different. Mainly self recorded between tours,  this record features a bare-bones production style which allows the warmth of the instruments to permeate throughout the speakers. The album’s thematic content raises concerns of post-grad uncertainty on “Jobs”, to the pains of self-sabotage on “Monsters”. The style of this record is varied as well ranging from post-punk to elements of alt-country.

Ewald revisits several of his past works from the Dawg EP by including “Toronto Mug”, “Mallrat Semi Annual” and “Bed Fest”, all cuts originally from his debut demo. While many of the changes from the past effort to this are sonically more improved, Ewald has added little auxiliary parts to create a more whole effort. The most noticeable difference however is how much more confident in his performance with these songs and it shows. With this new full length, Ewald is ready to step out from his Modern Baseball notoriety and go for it on his own terms. I for one, welcome his arrival.

Purchase “Welcome” digitally here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/welcome/id1144207219

Hannibal Buress Interview

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016 by The Professor

hannibal-buress-color-2-courtesy-of-comedy-central-jpg It started with a tweet by Hannibal (@hannibalburess) asking if anyone in the Baltimore/DC area wanted to have him come on their show and rap. Challenge accepted, intrepid DJ Matt Weinberg ’17 chased the dream. A few hours later, arrangements were being made and the next morning we had Hannibal on the phone from DC. He didn’t rap, but he did talk about a lot of things – from kicking (or maybe not) Flavor Flav in the face to helping Matt and co-host Mike Dayao ’18 name their show. It’s now officially “The Garbage Can and The Man”, in case you’re wondering. Hannibal Buress will be in Baltimore for a show at the Meyerhoff tomorrow night, but for now, you can hear him here!

Swamp Cabbage Interview

Monday, October 3rd, 2016 by The Professor

Swamp Cabbage Jive CDIt’s taken several tries to catch the slippery Swamp Cabbage and get them in the studio. We’ve had them play a show in Florida, had Walter Parks stop by a couple of times solo, waved “Hi” to Jagoda on the LIE, but Jim just won’t leave the swamp. Finally, we did it. I’m still not quite sure what happened, or if we actually talked about music because we were laughing so much. One thing is sure, if they ever decide to put away the Greco-Roman wrestling costumes and dock the iron lung, Swamp Cabbage has a second career in comedy. Listen in as Walter Parks, Jagoda and the ever-elusive Jim DeVito talk Swamp Cabbage, the honor of playing Katz’s Deli and mis-translating Spanish.

Metalachi Studio Seizure 9/9/16

Monday, September 19th, 2016 by The Professor

metalachi-outside-wloy How do you explain the brilliant madness that is Metalachi? And, more to the point, who in their right mind would give them control of a radio station?! We did. For 90 minutes the station was seized by a mad mix of heavy metal, mariachi music and George Michael… Yes, seriously. The band stopped by on the second night of their East Coast tour to hang out with our GM Tara and give her a dose of their show. Not only did they select all the music for the show, they even allowed us to play the advance version of their cover of Motorhead’s “Ace of Spades” which will be appearing on their upcoming second album, shockingly titled “Dos”. We will have some video and more photos to follow, but for now, we’re just busy trying to find the N’Sync bobble heads.

Show list:
Baby Got Back- Sir Mix Lot
She Blinded me with Science – Thomas “I live in Baltimore now” Dolby
Careless Whisper – George Michael
Ember City- Mastadon
Remember the Time- Michael Jackson
Have You Ever Loved a Woman- Bryan Adams
Tits- John Paragon (actually we couldn’t play this one for obvious reasons, but they wanted to)
Final Countdown- Europe
Holy Diver- Dio
