Impact Broadcast Signal Update #3

Hello Michigan State University and Capitol Area,

It is with great pleasure for us to announce that Impact 89FM’s broadcast signal, which had been greatly reduced since December 11th, is now back operating at full strength! We received a ton of support from the community during this quiet period, and we can’t thank all of you enough for the love that you sent our way. In the coming days please tune into 88.9FM to remind yourself how much you’ve missed us, because boy have we missed you! We hope to see all of you at our 25th birthday celebration with The Soil & The Sun, Flint Eastwood, and Kim Vi & The Siblings!

Samuel Riddle,
Station Manager

Sex on Toast – Takin’ Over

The Jam of the Day today comes from a nine piece yacht rock band out of Melbourne, Australia. This super-contagious song showed up in our Music Review department weeks ago and it’s been all the rage ever since.

A Message from Brandon John Foote on the Earthwork Music Collective

During Gifts or Creatures’ time under our Michigan Artist Spotlight, the Impact has been in correspondence with the band regarding all things music. Today, it is our privilege to shed light on a local cause that Gifts or Creatures holds near and dear.

Bethany and I are absolutely blessed to partner with Michigan’s Earthwork Music Collective. Earthwork Music is at the heart a statewide group of musically connected friends that work to see self-awareness and sustainability shared through collective song, conversation and annual festivals, including the Earthwork Harvest Gathering. We also observe a run of Earth Day shows each April to raise community awareness through song. Read More…

Album Spotlight: Gifts or Creatures’ Yesteryear Western Darkness

We’re rolling along with our Michigan Artist Spotlight on Lansing-based Gifts or Creatures by focusing on the band’s sophomore album, Yesteryear Western Darkness. The record is pure, authentic Americana that warmly engages its listeners with thoughtful lyrics and pleasant melodies. Simultaneously, Gifts or Creatures manages to create sounds that are timeless but fresh; each song produces a truly grand sense of nostalgia for a simple, bygone America, but also holds true to the condition of the 21st century human.

The Making of Yesteryear Western Darkness, written by Brandon John Foote

Our latest album, Yesteryear Western Darkness, began with an early version recorded at a friend’s home in Kalamazoo in March 2012. Read More…
