Had an awesome time on the show this week, we brought in Alaska and St8 of Mine to talk about upcoming shows, and all kinds of stuff including preferences in cheese. We also played some great tunes from artists playing shows soon. The playlist is below.
Eagulls are a band that everyone had on their list of “Who to Watch” at SXSW. If they didn’t, they were certainly talking about them after. Our Jam of the Day, “Possessed”, comes from the four-piece band from Leeds. You won’t be able to quite make out all of the lyrics, but the song is unrefined and unapologetic.
Tune into City Pulse! Lansing’s alternative newspaper is on the impact! This week on the show, you can hear from a variety of people in the Lansing/Michigan area about all kinda of issues the community is facing. Including:
People usually go sky-diving to experience the thrill and cross it off the bucket list. But, in 2001 a woman named Kelly Greene used skydiving as a tool to empower and overcome her past. She was sexually assaulted, but instead of fearing the anniversary of the assault, she decided to overcome another fear of hers: heights. Now, Michigan State University’s Sexual Assault Intervention Team is joining the initiative. Volunteers are raising money and some will even be jumping from an airplane. Exposure Director Abbie Newton talks with MSU psychology student Brianna Jecmen about the Intervention Team and Operation Freefall. For more information on how to make donations, click here.
Exposure host Abbie Newton talks to Michigan State University Economics professor Ron Fisher about the economics and business behind the NCAA Tournaments.
On this eccentric, enigmatic new LP adequately titled Mess, New York dance-punk/experimental outfit Liars prove to everyone (not like they care) that they’re able to keep developing and changing their sound album to album to album, all the while still managing to maintain their own unique identity.
Liars aren’t known for playing by the rules. Ever since their inception back in 2001 they’ve constantly been reinventing their musical palette, and following their own path (or lack thereof). And I know what you’re thinking sarcastically, “they shifted to electronic music, like that’s never been done before,” but they didn’t do so from outside pressure, or influence from their label, or any of that nonsense, Liars shifted into their new found territory naturally and simply because that’s what they felt like doing – and they completely own it.

Tokyo Police Club is a band that brings the flood of memories from those middle school and high school years. Gone are the days of the 3Oh!3 band tees and of the people name-dropping bands like The Maine, All Time Low, and Forever the Sickest Kids just to seem like they were “cool.” Since those adolescent years Tokyo Police Club has been somewhat absent in the music world, with the exception of the early release of their single “Hot Tonight”, and the new release of this new album Forcefield, these two motions have been the newest movements from this band since their last album dropped in 2010.
Michigan State University student Madeline Valentine has decided to bike across the country this summer. She will be participating in a ride with Bike & Build, which is an organization that uses biking as a way to fund and assist affordable housing efforts. Exposure Host Abbie Newton spoke with Madeline about her upcoming journey.
Every once in a while, you come across a unique performer, comedian or musician. That is exactly what happened to when Exposure Director Abbie Newton found Riders in the Sky, a western cowboy quartet. She sat down with Ranger Doug to talk about western music, comedy and yodeling.
