Dinosaur Jr. - Watch The Corners
This new cut from Dinosaur Jr.’s forthcoming LP I Bet On Sky is a slower, more downtrodden affair than their earlier, more aggressive material. That doesn’t mean this isn’t a jam, though. I’m honestly kind of blanking on what else to say. If you haven’t listened to Dinosaur Jr. what are you doing? Remedy that right now.
Also don’t forget to come to WQAQ’s involvement fair today at 4pm until 6pm!
Only a dingus would dislike this Swearin’ Video.
Download their self-titled LP here:
WQAQ isn’t full of dinguses, so obviously we love Swearin’. They’re actually being heavily promoted on our rotation. If you don’t listen to Swearin’, you should. It’s free. Do it. Do it. You wanna be cool, don’t you?
See, peer pressure isn’t all bad!
Now, this is a bit of a personal one. First off, Kevin Wolfring. This man, or kid as I’m more likely to call them, is an awesome up-and-coming comedian and songwriter. He started playing a mean ukelele before it became the cool thing to do. On youtube, Kevin has put out a few real awesome, funny songs; and in person his mind can churn out millions on demand. He’s a real guy to watch.
This song in particular is pretty close to me, and a large number of fans of the show Community. The show, different each week but always funny, is one the best on TV. You have to watch the show, perhaps a whole season of it, to understand. But after watching one of those whole seasons, you have to understand it’s not going to be like that at all next season. Dan Harmon, the mind behind the show, was fired this last weekend, and with him, a lot of the writer quit. NBC is trying to make the show “more accessible,” like a “Two and a Half Men” or “Big Bang Theory.” More accessible can is not better, as any music fan like myself can appreciate. Of course, we, not to mention the actors, want Dan Harmon back, the show won’t be the same without his nitpicking control.
So listen to Kevin Wolfring’s “(I Don’t Want) SIx Seasons and a Movie.” If you’re a Community fan, spread the word, reblog his video, and let it be known that the people who love Greendale College, the Study Group, and Community, want Dan Harmon. If you’re not a fan, watch the show; they just finished season 3. Give it a few episodes, and I guarantee you will be a fan.
And keep an eye on Kevin Wolfring. He’s going places.
SINGLE MOTHERS - Hell (Is My Backup Plan)
Ever since finding out about Single Mothers over spring break I find myself unable to stop listening to them. My love for the Hold Steady should be well known at this point; Single Mothers is essentially an hardcore version of The Hold Steady sent from an alternate universe where the consequence of not rocking is death. Make sense? It probably doesn’t until you listen to it. Which you totally should.
Bomb The Music Industry! - 25!
Too many exclamation marks? I disagree! Personally, I don’t think there could be enough as BTMI is going to perform at WQAQ’s #FESTAPALOOZA this Friday! Also on the bill are TITUS ANDRONICUS, THE FRONT BOTTOMS, THE GURU, GREAT CEASAR, and THE MIDNIGHTERS! It’s free for QU students and $5 bucks for everyone else. There will be free food, a guitar give away, and free FROYO! Doors are at 5:30; we’ll see you there! That’s a lot of exclamation marks.
