Staff Year End List: Content Director Kevin Glide’s “Top 10 Albums of 2013″

After absolutely destroying all that Rolling Stone loves with my article “Top 10 Reasons to Disagree with Rolling Stone’s Top 50 Albums of 2013″ I felt that the time was right for the Impact to take their rightful place as the foremost authority on music lists. Being the Content Director at WDBM Impact 89FM, I tasked my co-workers with composing their end of the year “Top 10 Albums of 2013.” All week long, we’ll be sharing staff picks. Here’s my totally unbiased, super objective, unopinionated, fair and balanced list.

#10 – Modern Vampires of the City by Vampire Weekend
I didn’t care for this album too much, but I love this band dearly. It’s kinda like if your significant other got an ugly haircut, you know?

Impact 89FM’s Broadcast Signal Strength Temporarily at Minimal Power

East Lansing, Mich – On December 11th, 2013, an issue with the Impact 89fm (88.9 WDBM-FM) transmission system caused the main transmitter shutdown during the evening broadcast. Upon inspection by the chief engineer, it was determined that the problem was not with the transmitter itself, but with the transmission line leading to the transmitter. The chief engineer was able to get one of Impact 89FM’s transmitters to power on and broadcast at a significantly reduced power. We continue to broadcast at this reduced power setting until the system can be evaluated and repaired.

Review of Until the Ribbon Breaks’ A Taste of Silver EP

Last week, this talented Welshmen dropped A Taste of Silver, a 5 track EP that refuses to be restricted to contemporary standards and genres. Using chill electronic percussion, airy keyboards, and good ol’ fashioned soul power, UTRB pushes the frontier of “future R&B” reminiscent of acts like Frank Ocean and The Weeknd.
