Weekday Wrap Up

It’s Friday! Keep on reading to see what some of us at WDBM have been listening to this week.

Music Review-Content Liaison Eric Finkler

So a couple weeks ago, Manchester Orchestra played in Grand Rapids with Kevin Devine and Balance and Composure. I was very familiar with Manchester’s album Mean Everything to Nothing, and just about that. Then I heard them perform Penascola from the album Simple Math and I can’t stop listening to the rest of their discography including their new album Cope which has split many of their fans. I will say I’m a huge fan of the opening tracks on Cope, but haven’t it hasn’t completely won me over yet, will update when I have confirmation.

News, Content, and Music Review team member Ian Wendrow

So I’ve been on a bit of a BADBADNOTGOOD kick lately, going through a bunch of songs they’ve produced with other groups like Tyler, The Creator and an awesome rap song featuring Ghostface Killah and Danny Brown. Their newest album, BBNG2, has been on steady rotation for most of this week Read More…

Andy Hull, Jesse Lacey, and Kevin Devine – Jesus Christ

What happens when Andy Hull (of Manchester Orchestra), Jesse Lacey (of Brand New), and Kevin Devine get three acoustic guitars, sit down in a bar in Long Island, NY in front of under a hundred people, and play music with no real direction in mind? The answer is a lot of craziness, forgetting lyrics, making fun of each other, and, of course, artistry. Artistry exemplified by an impromptu folk cover of Brand New’s popular song “Jesus Christ.” Check out some footage of that song below. Read More…
