  2. Desert Sharks - I Know What I Want

    I first saw Desert Sharks last July when they were the opening band for Diarrhea Planet at Shea Stadium. I had no idea who they were prior to their taking the stage, but once they did I couldn’t stop watching. They were so self-assured, so together, and insanely catchy; not things many opening bands can cop to having. After the show, I immediately downloaded their demo, and it has been on constant rotation for the better part of the last six months. As such, I was hotly anticipating their newest EP Sister Cousins. “I Know What I Want” is the first track off the album, which was released earlier this week (I forget when). The track finds Desert Sharks doing what they do best: catchy surfy riffs over love-lorn vocals. Take a listen and then go buy Sister Cousins over at their bandcamp.

  9. 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!
