Last month, I wrote a list of fifteen short album reviews for February and March releases that I would have loved to have talked about on my show had we been on campus, so I thought that I would make a similar list for April album releases (that way, I would have then...

During this crazy time we’re living in, we’ve all had to find ways to cope and escape the anxieties that come with not knowing what will happen next. That may be watching a string of old movies and TV shows or even going out for a walk or run if you’re able, but if you...

I am sure many of you have heard the statistic that 90% of roughly the world’s

7,000 languages will become dormant by 2050. What will a loss of linguistic diversity mean for music diversity? It will have a devastating effect on humankind and it’s scary for me to imagin...

On Friday, November 8th WMCN hosted the third ever Big Gig (BIIIG GIIIG) and one of the best ones yet! There were 5 local acts with two Macalester bands and one band coming all the way from Chicago performing the library basement. If you are interested in performing or...

Looking around the Palace Theater, I saw a fair amount of cat-eye glasses, a lot of short bangs, and a sea of IPA beers— typical crowd to be expected for indie rock band Sleater-Kinney, riot grrl pioneers, and all-around rock goddesses. I also saw a lot of unsettled an...

I’ll be honest, folks. I didn’t know much about Kero Kero Bonito prior to this show. Had I not gone, I probably would have never even dared venture into Kero Kero Bonito territory. The only song I knew was “Flamingo”, and the meme-like nature of that tune had ruined an...
