WTSR New Noise

This week, WTSR’s Music Director Brian Marino highlights some of the best new music that the College’s own radio station, 91.3 FM WTSR, puts into its weekly rotation.

Band Name: Carl Broemel

Album Name: Wished Out

Release Number: 3

Hailing From: Tennessee

Genre: Psychedelic Rock

Label: Stocks In Asia Records

In his third solo album, Wished Out,

Broemel maintains the musical ability that is showcased in his previous work. This album is both an introspective and existential conversation of a veteran musician and a middle-aged man questioning his short time on Earth. Despite the heavy topics, the music is groovy with an emphasis on jangly to fuzzy guitar work and sometimes a driving piano. Wished Out is a breezy soundtrack for an existental walk around campus.

Must Hear: “Dark Matter,” “Rain Check,” “Wished Out,” “Second Fiddle” and “Out of Reach”

Band Name: Walter Salas-Humara

Album Name: Walterio

Release Number: 9

Hailing From: New York

Genre: Rock and Roll

Label: Rhyme and Reason Records

The consistent upbeat tempo proves that the Spanish lyrics are a big style element. The unabashed swagger gives each one of these songs a light and gentle tone that floats easily into your ears without warning. There are elements of guitar shredding and sick riffs that balance out the perfectly gritty vocals. It sounds as if this flawless record had been recorded during the peak of 70s rock, but flew under the radar for its distinct personality and Americana tendencies.

Must Hear: “Here We Go,” “Out of the Band,” ”Come in a Singer,” “I Want to Be with You,” and “ Will You Be Ready”
