Lana Del Rey

Weekday Wrap Up

What have you been listening to this week?! Here’s a brief update on what has been going through the headphones of some of our staff members!

Assistant Program Director Jacob Richards
WHITE LUNG. This feminist punk band just dropped a new album called Deep Fantasy, and it’s already looking to be one of my favorite punk releases of the year. Is has the same urgency and aggression as Perfect Pussy’s march release, Say Yes to Love (my #1 punk album of the year so far) but with a refreshing and impassioned sense of clarity. Also, the Needledrop just turned my on to an EP from a band called Kiddy Pool? The EP is literally titled Super Pony Perv Plus and it includes songs such as: “Moms and Their Blonde College Age Daughters”, as well as family favorite, “I Guh Guh Got A$$bergers From a Toilet Seat”. It’s electronic/surf/noise madness and it makes me really happy. *not for the faint of heart* Read More…

San Fermin – Sonsick

When Brooklyn composer and score writer Ellis Ludwig-Leone, now known as San Fermin, graduated from the Yale College of Music, it took him six weeks to write and record an album. The album is (as Ludwig-Leone puts it) “a pastiche of post rock, chamber pop, and contemporary classical composition.” What resulted is an energetic and thoughtful amalgamation of top indie rock bands. Though a very creative and well-arranged album, it ends up sounding a lot like Dirty Projectors with some Lana Del Rey vibes thrown in. Either way, it’s a great listen. Check out the first single off the self-titled album (out September 17th) below.
