What Is The WLOY Staff Listening To?

It is definitely hard to see through the biases associated with movie sound track albums. Why spend money on a collection of juxtaposed songs that seem but lost independent of their movie origin? However, with the release of the new Coen Brothers film Inside Lleywn Davis, my perceptions have been swayed. Based in NYC circa 1960, the film follows the character of Lleywn Davis–a vagabond folk musician surfing couches of the East Village struggling to demonstrate his talent and find his place in life. The film’s soundtrack was created like any other studio album and more so. Tracks include appearances by Mumford & and Sons, JT, and The Punch Brothers, all lead by notable music producer and composer T-Bone Burnett. However, don’t let all these big names shadow Oscar Isaac, the lead actor and recording musician for multiple tracks including one of my favorites “Hang me, Oh Hang me”. If you enjoy folk music, or just good art in general, both the sound track and film are definitely worth checking out.

Where: 203 Amity Street

Recently his 205th birthday, this little house at 203 Amity street (originally No. 3 Amity) was Edgar Allan Poe’s home until his death in 1849. So much history is left in this small home. Saved from the demolition in 1941 thanks to the Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore, this house was left untouched. His original writing desk and other personal items are on display.

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.
