Heads up! This article was imported from a previous version of The Signal. If you notice any issues, please let us know.

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




Music headphones (envato elements).

Band Name: The Preatures


Album Title: “GIRLHOOD”


Release Number: 2nd


Hailing From: Sydney, Australia


Genre: Power Pop


Label: Harvest


Singer Isabella “Izzi” Manfredi is front and center on this record as she digs deep into the complex contradictions of being a modern woman. She turns different stages of her life into 11 soul-searching sonic gems. The song “Mess It Up” shows the musicality of The Preatures and is definitely an album highlight. This album has the faster jams like “Girlhood” but can also bust out the lighters with “Cherry Ripe,” a modern, drum-heavy ballad.


Must Hear: “Girlhood,” “Mess It Up” and “Cherry Ripe”


Band Name: RAC


Album Title: “EGO”


Release Number: 2nd


Hailing From: Porto, Portugal


Genre: Alternative Dance


Label: Counter Records


André Allen Anjos is back for his second album just months after being awarded his first Grammy. In typical RAC manor, he is bringing in a myriad of great collaborators to help him out. Rivers Cuomo, Rostam Batmanglij, Jean-Philip Grobler of St. Lucia and many more all feature to make another album fit to fuel any party. If you love smart yet modern pop songs, you’ll surely love RAC. Give it a spin!


Must Hear: “I Still Wanna Know (feat. Rivers Cuomo),” “Be,” “Heartbreak Summer (feat. K.Flay)” and “Unusual (feat. MNDR)”
