WTSR New Noise

This week, WTSR Music Director Brian Marino highlights some of the best new music that the College’s own radio station, 91.3 FM WTSR, puts into its weekly rotation.

Band Name: Waxahatchee

Album Name: Great Thunder

Release Number: 6

Hailing From: Birmingham

Genre: Dreamy piano folk

Label: Merge Records

Waxahatchee’s sixth album comes with only six songs. The first song on the record features a piano line reminiscent to Christina Aguilera’s “You Are Beautiful”; The simple piano lines in all of the songs (except for Slow You Down which has a guitar instead) make this album a quiet and relaxing mix of melodies before going to bed, background music when doing your homework or just sitting outside in the fall. The calmness of Waxhatchee’s album is a perfect fit for your  playlist!

Must Hear: “Singer’s No Star”,  “You Left Me With an Ocean” and “Slow You Down”

Band Name: The Fibs

Album Name: The Fibs

Release Number: 2

Hailing From: Fort Worth

Genre: Psychedelic Garage Rock

Label: Team Clermont

The album is a trip through your mind. Its ominous overtones takes you through yourself as you become entranced by its psychedelic instrumentals. Each track feels gritty and raw in its own way, yet well produced by the incredibly talented Fibs. Despite the Fibs drawing inspiration from only a few sources, their self titled album seem to have the  feeling they could fit comfortably in a David Bowie track.

Must Hear: “Stella” and “Tyranny”
