Andrea Moor: Playlist Showcase

Andrea Moor Music Journalist In an attempt to showcase lesser-known artists, I curated a playlist of work released earlier this month by artists who currently have fewer than 50,000 monthly Spotify listeners. This playlist is roughly 2.5 hours long and features over 20 artists with 50 songs. There’s no set genre with this selection; however, it primarily pertains to fun mixes. I’d deem the stars of this set to be Loraine James, Adamn Killa/Adamn, Girls Rituals, WiFiGawd and Rahiem Supreme. […]

Rabbits of the ‘90s: A Niche’s Core

By Morgan Hirosky Assistant Music Director   Spiraling down a ‘90s, alternative, post-rock rabbit-hole has led me directly into the den of the trailblazers: Fugazi, Built to Spill, Heatmiser, Duster, Beulah, Starflyer 59, Quasi, and Sparklehorse. The result is an unavoidable obsession with the subtleties this age of music embodies.   My humble pilgrimage is spurred by a phenomenon I like to call “accidental consistency”: a concept well-encompassed by the […]

Concert Review: Khruangbin and Thundercat

McKenzie McGuire Music Journalist A night of alluring sounds from Khruangbin was a healing experience. The three members Laura Lee, Mark Speer, and Donald Johnson from Houston, put on a set that allowed people to express themselves, unlike any live show I’ve experienced. With their sound being primarily acoustic, not focusing on lyrics makes the crowd absorb every beat, riff, and baseline that oozes off of the stage. The most […]

My Night at Harry’s House

By Kylie Hogg Local Music Journalist On Tuesday, September 26th, 2022, I had the honor of spending the night at Harry’s House. For those of you who may be unaware, Harry Styles has been going on a residency tour for the past month and a half or so. He has taken over Madison Square Garden for fifteen nights (sold out and earned an honorary banner) and now resides at the […]

A Dream Setlist for Rihanna’s Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show

This news came after TMZ reported that Taylor Swift was asked to headline the halftime show but […]

On-Air on the Other Side of the Ocean: UCC98.3FM Residency

By Ashley Farnie Assistant Music Director College radio holds a special place in my heart after being involved with KTSW for three years. Upon travelling to Ireland to study for the summer I wanted to ensure I had some dose of music to balance my studies of Irish Literature and Mythology. I checked out a guitar from the Cork County Library to play in my dorm apartment and met with […]

Artist Interview: Flight by Nothing

By McKenzie McGuire Music Journalist “We did things this year that we've dreamt about the last couple years” -Pacco Salinas (Lead Guitar) Bringing a contagious sound and eccentric energy to their shows, Flight by Nothing is definitely a group to keep an eye on. I got the opportunity to sit down with Connor, Sam, Porfii, Braydon, and Pacco earlier this month to find out more about their journey and dynamic […]

The Twilight Saga: Album Review

By Gilian Prado Music Journalist The year was 2008. Musically we are in the center of the post-punk revival, with the likes of The Strokes, Vampire Weekend, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem, Franz Ferdinand and The White Stripes. Indie rock is in its golden age, and the soundtrack of a film franchise, specifically the first three Twilight films, reflected that. While the Twilight films themselves were made for a target […]

Dissecting the All New Indie playlist on Spotify

By Sofia Gualy Music Journalist If you are anything like me, searching for new music can be quite a grueling task. Looking for the perfect genre and the perfect tune can take hours on end. Spotify makes this task look easy when creating curated playlists of specific genres. All New Indie takes all the newest indie songs that have been released recently and places them all in one place for […]

Concert Review: ONE OK ROCK: The Luxury Disease Tour at Emo’s Austin

Destany Sanchez Music Journalist I was astonished to learn that ONE OK ROCK (OOR) was returning to the road with a new album after a 3 ½ year hiatus.  I’ve been a huge fan of theirs since 2015 and have never been able to have the opportunity to see them live, until this tour.  Unfortunately, with just my luck, they had sold out of the pre-sale VIP tickets. On the […]
