WTSR New Noise

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 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: Hate Drugs

Album Name: Tsunami Soul II

Release Number: 1

Hailing From: California

Genre: Surf Pop Rock

Label: Young Tide Records

Tsunami Soul II is for your beach-day necessities. Whether it is a sunny or cloudy, count on Hate Drugs to pump it up with upbeat guitar riffs and smooth vocals. The lyrics help you understand what it would be like to have a literal tsunami soul, where the ocean calls your name. Each song gives you a different vibe. You’ll hear everything from an acoustic melancholy song to an upbeat head-banging melody. I recommend you play every song because it will guarantee a tune that will forever stay in your head.

Must Hear: “On My Own,” “Afterimage” and “Dizzy”

Band Name: The Aesthetics

Album Name: Beat This

Release Number: 4

Hailing From: San Francisco

Genre: Soft Rock

Label: Mountain House Recorders

Beat This is a conglomeration of all the moods one goes through in a day. It is filled with long melodies that add great color and variety. The driving and powerful bass paired with the forceful drum hits and slightly twangy guitar licks produce a collaboration of greatness. I can and will see myself listening to these songs anywhere from my bedroom floor to a long and winding car ride — the kind where you pretend you are in the movies.

Must Hear: “Thinking of You”
