What Is The WLOY Staff Listening To?

Friday, January 31st, 2014 by Billy Dries

Lorde-Team-deidah-dereon1Kat O’Brien – Lorde – “Team” – Pure Heroine – 

The world’s new favorite New Zealander, Lorde, has been topping charts internationally with her first album, Pure Heroine. Although her first single, Royals, is arguably her most popular, I would say that her song “Team” deserves equal or more praise. Give it a listen and your ears are almost guaranteed to enjoy.

Staff Picks: Dries’ Best Albums of 2013

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013 by Billy Dries

Blood Orange - CoverBlood Orange – Cupid Deluxe – 

With his sophomore release, Blood Orange delivered an absolute masterpiece. The R&B meets disco groove of the album immediately captured me and drew me in. From the first track, “Chamkay”, to the closing, “Time Will Tell”, the album keeps the listener guessing, weaving in and out of multiple genres it gets almost anybody on their feet and dancing.

What Are We Listening To This Week?

Kelly Burchard – The NeighbourhoodI Love You

 While their album came out earlier this year, The Neighbourbood’s I Love You is just now making its way into my Top 25 Most Played iTunes playlist. Their motley crew of electric, hip-hop and indie rock sound is something that is hard not to like. All the tracks on I Love You flow into each other so smoothly, and while this isn’t necessarily the album that makes you want to get up and dance, it is definitely worth a listen to, if you haven’t already.

What Albums Are We Listening To This Week?

Thursday, November 14th, 2013 by Billy Dries

Beach_House_-_BloomKait Connaughton – Beach House – Bloom

By no means is Bloom a new release, but it is by far one of my most listened to albums in recent memory. Boasting the emerging ethereal/dream pop genre, Baltimore’s very own Beach House transcend the musical experience via their use of synthesized instruments and deep, emotion-fueled, whispering female vocals. Pick up this album and change your music listening experience; you won’t regret it.

Staff Picks 11.3.2013

Billy DriesNight Time, My Time – Sky Ferreirasky-cover

Sky has been on the public radar for years now, she’s allegedly hooked up with Miley Cyrus, and got busted for drugs, and shed a pop star that didn’t start on Disney Channel!…Whats this? Billy’s pick is a pop album?… Freak yeah it is, this album rocks it out and delivers a sound the likes of which hasn’t been heard in a Pop album since the likes of Michael Jackson, or Madonna.
