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…

Ben Frost – Nolan

Ben Frost is a lot of things and boring is not one of them. Recently he released a brand new album called Aurora that features a lot of experimental instrumental music. This song Nolan is perfect for so many reasons, one being the fact that this song is broken down into many different segments that makes it seem like you’re listening to multiple songs. This is perfect headphone music, once it encloses you in its grasp it grabs a hold of you and takes you to a whole different world of music.

VIDEO PREMIERE: Tycho – Artist Feature

You might disagree, but Scott Hansen, better known by Tycho, is in our opinion quite the interesting musician. We had the chance to sit down with him before his show at The Crofoot back in April. Also, this video will definitely prep you or fill the empty spot left in your head that’s dedicated for Electric Forest this weekend.
