Liars – Mess

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 – Forcefield

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.

Eagulls – Possessed

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.

Operation Freefall sheds light on sexual assault

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.
