Phoneboy Interview

Thursday, May 4th, 2023 by The Professor

Back in March our intrepid DJ/Production Manager Ben Ostrowski ’24 caught up with one of the station’s favorite bands Phoneboy for a chat about their start, college, recoding, touring and advice for DIY bands getting their start. We lost the interview for a moment, but in the meanwhile they’ve posted their second Album of the Week here at WLOY. Listen now before they sell out 10 nights at Madison Square Garden!

AOTW: Yves Tumor – “Praise A Lord…”

Monday, May 1st, 2023 by Liz Kosik

By Amelia Dunat ’25

Album of the Week: Yves Tumor“Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between World).

Released: March 2023

Rate: 9/10

Yves Tumor’s 5th album, “Praise A Lord”, exceeded my expectations and got a well-deserving rating of 9 out of 10. Yves Tumor is a producer and musician known for their experimental music and is originally from Knoxville, Tennessee. After spending some time in California, they were able to experiment with their sound and develop it into their current sound. Yves Tumor effortlessly intertwines shoegaze and grunge with electronic, also producing their own take on 90’s alt-rock and psychedelic rock. (more…)

AOTW: Charlie – “Precious Metal”

Monday, April 24th, 2023 by Liz Kosik

by Amelia Dunat ’25

Album of the Week: Charlie“Precious Metal”

Released: March 1, 2023

Rate: 8/10

RIYL: Slowdive, Duster, Deftones, Smashing Pumpkins 

Charlie is a 3-piece band from Tampa, Florida, and “Precious Metal” is their debut album! I discovered it during my weekly music reviews and I ended up adding all the songs to the library. Their sound is reminiscent of 90’s alt-rock and shoegaze, and this compilation of 10 songs sounded perfect together. This album is only 29 minutes long so it is definitely worth giving the whole piece a listen. (more…)

Mark Hopkins – Studio Seizure

Tuesday, April 4th, 2023 by The Professor

We are very excited to have Studio Seizure return with great local guitarist (among other things) Mark Hopkins. Mark has played numerous shows on campus for us (rumor has it he liked one of our posters enough to swipe it). He’s fronted his own bands The Hotel, The Pretty War and is back with the resurrected Tribe of Ben.

Did we mention he’s also got a great interview podcast of his own and is perpetually playing with all manner of guitar pedals. Sit back and enjoy a deeper dive into what makes his musical mind happy, and how Pearl Jam and Dawes are currently battle for #1 in his heart. Studio Seizure returns 7pm Tuesday!

Tei Shi“Bad Premonition”

Release: 2023

Rate: 8.5/10

RIYL: Caroline Polachek, Jessie Ware, Shyra, U.S. Girls, Cecile Believe

“Bad Premonition” by Tei Shi is such a cool album! I really love the chill vibes that every song gives. Tei Shi is a Colombian-Argentinian singer and songwriter. The melodies within the album transmit a feeling of calmness, while the lyrics talk about issues in love. The album feels like she is narrating the process in which she got over an ex. (more…)

SOTW: LAANDS – “K TOWN”

Monday, April 3rd, 2023 by Liz Kosik

by Amelia Dunat ’25

Song of the Week: LAANDS“K TOWN”

Released: March 3, 2023

Rate: 9/10

RIYL: Tanukichan, Phantogram, Tame Impala, Grimes, Blood Orange

This is the 4th track from LAANDS album “Music for the Future” which was released early this March. LAANDS was formed by Rania Woodward and Brian Squillace. They began working on this album in the spring of 2021. They were inspired by their surroundings in nature and say they connected with the spiritual world around them in the creation of the track. “K TOWN” fits their typical electronic pop sound, but its catchy beat and fun lyrics stood out to me.
