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…

The Pact – #35 – 6/16/14

With the 2014 FIFA World Cup kicking off in Brazil this past Thursday and with already a weekend of soccer behind us, The Pact held its first ever show devoted mainly to soccer.

To begin the show, Fino and Faith welcomed Lansing United owner Jeremy Sampson as he watched the USA’s first match of the World Cup live at a local pub. Jeremy shed light on the recent successes of the local amateur soccer team both in the standings and in the team finances and the community.

United midfielder, Godwin Addai, then joined the panel a little farther into the game as USA led 1-0 at the beginning of the second half. Godwin grew up and played in Canada and Michigan, but his mother and father are from Ghana. As a fan of the Black Stars, Godwin gave a different perspective on the biggest game in USA soccer in the last four years.

To round out the show, panelist Austin Goodman called in to begin a debate on the Spurs dominating 4-1 NBA Finals victory over LeBron and the Miami Heat.

Weekday Wrap Up

It’s that time of week again! Check out what some Impacters have been listening to this week and you might just discover something yourself!

Assistant Office Manager and Music Reviewer Sami Leonardo 

So I’ve been all about the new Sam Smith album. His voice is beautifully soothing and incredibly soulful. On the other side of the spectrum, I’ve been listening to the clipping album. It’s weird compilations of static and other strange effects that almost make it hard to listen to, but it’s worth it.
