The National: World Premiere

The lead-off track from High Violet, out May 11, sets the bar quite high.

Check it out on Fallon. What starts out as mediocre builds to pure, almost-punk bliss.

I once collected butterflies. I still collect coins.

You've had midterms and haven't been up on your tunes . . .

WRMC understands. We've got you covered.

"Collector" is the first single from Here We Go Magic's second album. It's set to be released this summer.

the glory days are coming!

"glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever"
-napoleaon bonaparte, (yeah the emperor)

canada's glory days may have passed with the end of the olympics, but canadian pop's will come on may 4th!

superstars ac newman and neko case have reunited with all of the new pornographers (and a star studded list of guests, including the dap kings, that girl from st. vincent, and will sheff from okkervil river) to release together, their 5th studio album on may 4th. from the sounds of the first single off the album, this album should secure the new pornographers place in obscurity forever. it's everything poppy and you love about the new pornographers only cooler and more modern.

slightly less exciting than full albums are pre-released singles:

even better is the may 4th release of a new broken social scene record forgiveness rock record. after keeping fans waiting in suspense for the past 4 years, kevin drew, the group leader, has finally gotten a group together to continue breaking the social scene. past broken social scene albums have featured heavily other indie artists, including feist, regina spector and that dude who plays the horn in stars, however they have trimmed down the number of musicians featured in each song and are focusing on a, in the words of kevin drew, "core-member album". by the sounds of it they are going to rock it again!

check out this tight 7 min release!

Behind the Green Curtain...

These wonderful folks are our General Board 2009-2010. Or at least, the members in attendance this week.

And these are your Executive Board and Concert Committee this year. Chris DiOrio, one of our Concert Committee members, is unfortunately not in this picture.

These crazy kids are the Exec Board.

Many thanks to Thom Corrado for serving as the photographer!

Who Knows Who Cares

I asked if I could borrow a shirt and he nodded towards room number 13.

“Pick a winner” he said.

The door was ajar and there was an anchor drawn on it. I hopped off the couch and walked in. photographs he presumably took covered the walls, one was of a person frozen in mid air. Clothes covered every inch of his floor creating a complexly textured and colored rug of plaid, stripes and other hues. I kicked my shoes off behind me into the hall and walked across the soft sea of cotton, corduroy and denim towards the bureau.

I opened the second drawer from the top and found t-shirts carefully folded with brilliant colors poking out from the depths of each of the three stacks. Then it hit me, the smell that is. An aroma of old sandwiches, pit sweat, and damp sneakers flooded my nose all at once as I picked up a yellow shirt that said “Hawaii!” on it. There were mud spots all over the back from riding a bicycle in the rain. I dropped it back in the drawer and pulled a purple tie dye up to my nose. B.O.! Another, a trail of salsa skipping down the front, maybe blood, nope, definitely salsa. Another, grass stain! Another, B.O. again, woof!

Throwing the shirts back in the drawer I closed it to seal off the stench. I looked around my feet and reached down to pick up a royal blue shirt from the floor and held it to my nose. Memories of sitting in Stephen’s kitchen during the summer flew fleetingly threw my head. Probably Tide I thought.

I put it on and walked back out to the couch. “That strangely does make sense”. He nodded without breaking his glance from the television.
