A playlist so 90's, so festive and so BRU to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.
It's Nothin' But Nineties Week here at WBRU. It's also right in the middle of the holiday season. We knew we wanted to put together a celebratory playlist for you guys, but we weren't sure which theme to settle on
The Wrap-Up brings you the 10 largest music news stories of the week as well as information about new album and music video releases.
HEADLINES OF THE WEEK 1. Walk the Moon released their second album and performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live
A week ago I had the pleasure to see Radiohead perform at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Philadelphia, my place of origin, and probably one of the most beautiful cities in the country (no bias). Now seeing Radiohead was probably at the top of my bucket list
The warm late May air lingered all night at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, Mass. last Tuesday as Radiohead rocked the enormous, sold-out crowd. Radiohead constantly pushes the envelope of what is considered "good" alternative rock; from the early 90's, that meant a ear-awakening guitar chunk in "Creep," a number of albums that seemed ahead of the times (OK Computer and Amnesiac come to mind), and albums that changed the state of music as we know it (like In Rainbows, available for any price a consumer wants to pay)
In the wake of the madness that was the Black Keys' Boston show, I couldn't decide how best to channel that into Exposure. Answer? Why not play a track from their opener, the inimitable and dashingly-accented Arctic Monkeys
Sleigh Bells? Radiohead? The synapse-melting guitars'n'beats + the burbles of Thom Yorke's synthey prowess? Please, people, let's vote to legalize this marriage of madness in all 60 states (I'm counting moon colonies) and get on with the Exposure lovin'
