What Are We Listening To This Week?

February 20th, 2014 by Billy Dries

maxresdefaultRachel Stoczko – Hey OceanIf I Were A Ship – 

This super fun song, that’s a single track off their 2013 album IS, is the epitome of Hey Ocean!. The Vancouver based band is fun loving and they provide feel good music that just makes you want to dance. In January they released an animated video to accompany “If I Were A Ship” and it’s basically the most adorable an animated music video can get. Give them a listen, dance along and fall in love, like I have.

ArkBeams4What: The rebuilding of Noah’s Arc

God’s Ark of Safety Church in Maryland has given us one of the most interesting religious attractions in the country. The church is constructing a rebuilding of Noah’s Ark. Supposedly this is inspired by a dream that the church’s pastor had and is a huge 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet tall structure.

This star-shaped brick fort is famous for its role in the War of 1812. The national monument, which staved off a British invasion, later inspired Francis Scott Key to pen a poem, “Defence of Fort McHenry” — the words of which later served as the lyrics to his “Star-Spangled Banner.”

WLOY Late Night Concert: Wendel Patrick 2/20/14

February 17th, 2014 by Joe Lomuti

1484729_10152192884327265_583046015_n-300x300I believe it is safe to say Wendel Patrick is a man of science. Now, this does not imply his musicianship is anything less than artful, or the music less soulful, or the sound at all mechanical. Rather, it is that Wendel’s moment of  catharsis lives within an arrangement of mathematical precision. Like a mad-scientist in his laboratory, he is an alchemist of sound, meticulously blending consonance and dissonance as if they were volatile fluids finding solace in embrace. This Thursday night Wendel Patrick will be headlining WLOYs Late Night Concert Event, rockin’ the house with tracks from his recent four album release. If you hadn’t yet put the clues together, Wendel Patrick is Loyola own former professor of music, Kevin Gift! Haven’t heard any of his music? Well, get experienced. Show starts 9pm, be sure to bring your hazmat suit.
