Weekday Wrap Up

Keep on reading to check out what some Impacter’s have been listening to this week!!

Marketing Director Shelby Doyle
I’ve been listening to a lot of Deap Vally lately. My friend saw them open for Band Of Skulls earlier this summer and said they were awesome, so I checked them out – They were right. They remind me of a time when there actually was such a thing as rockstars. And what more do you actually need than two babes completely rocking out? Read More…

SBTRKT – “New Dorp, New York”

London producer SBTRKT released “New Drop, New York” from his next album Wonder When We Land yesterday on BBC. The track borrows vocals from Ezra Koenig, lead singer of Vampire Weekend. The single has a significantly different sound from his self-titled debut album and instrumental EP, Transitions. “New Drop, New York” has more of a pop aura about it that is likely to be better received by the general public. Don’t worry though – that deep dancey beat we expect from SBTRKT still lingers in the background of the song.

Weekday Wrap Up

Check out what music has been going through the ear holes of some of your favorite Impact staff members this week!

Assistant Program Director Jacob Richards

Philadelphia dream pop/shoegaze band, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, just dropped an amazing new album called Sea When Absent, which has been rotation all week for me. While listening to this LP it’s hard to imagine that the band was actually never together at the same time during the recording, but at the same the the recordings feel just disconnected enough for it to be real. Early released tracks “Byebye, Big Ocean (The End)”, and “In Love With Useless (The Timeless Geometry in the Tradition of Passing)” had my hopes very high for the full length, but it did not disappoint. As you delve further in this thing, allowing the ethereal vocals and hazy instrumentals to overcome you, you realize that this album wasn’t made to make you sad, it was made to help you when you’re feeling down and bring you back up with it’s huge choruses and bright, gleaming synth leads. At least, that’s what it did for me. Read More…

It’s upbeat, catchy and features a killer guitar solo which lands it in our spot as the Jam of the Day. If you missed it, last year we did an interview with Jennifer Clavin of Bleached that you can check out here!
