Last week fellow Music Reviewer, Sami Leonardo, got the chance to catch up with the Australian music duo named Big Scary. During the interview, a variety of topics were covered ranging form the worst band names they’ve ever come up with as well as the fun moments they experienced at Sasquatch! Festival. Tom also enlightens listeners to what a “musical poo” is by his definition.
This week marked a big show for The Pact with recent MSU football and basketball signings going down and with the seasons coming up faster than the panel expected.
Fino and Faith welcomed Dan Kilbridge of 247sports.com to discuss and debate the current signees of the 2015 football class (OG Kyonta Stallworth, OT Noah Listermann, CB Tyson Smith, QB Jayru Campbell and QB Brian Lewerke.).
As the conversation continued, it turned towards the current freshman football class of 2014 and Michigan State’s most recent signee, LB T.J. Harrell of Tampa, Fla.
The Pact wrapped up with a short debate about LeBron James’ “cramps” in Game 1 of the NBA Finals and his 35-points performance in Game 2.

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.

Mac Demarco has come out with a new video for his song “Passing Out Pieces” from his album Salad Days that came out on April 1st.

Kids, let this be a lesson to NEVER EVER pour bleach on your cigs. Check out the video after the jump. NSFW! Read More…
