Adrian “AJ” Colding – Volunteer Coordinator
Noah Cyrus – Make Me (Cry)
Noah Cyrus’ dark, raspy, mysterious sound had me do a double take at my phone when I first heard the song. At first I thought it was a new Miley Cyrus song and I automatically loved it because I am personally a huge fan of Miley Cyrus’ voice. When I saw the name Noah, I had to google her to confirm relation to the Cyrus legacy. Noah, not only sounds like her older sister but she also looks just like her too. Often singers are known for riding the coat-tail if their super star sibling. However, this isn’t the case for young Cyrus. Noah, proves she can stand on her own in her new single, Make Me (Cry) feat. Labrinth. The lyrics behind this song also resonate with where I am in my personal life right now, which gives me the intended connection to this song.
Joshua Bezona – Marketing & Underwriting Coordinator
Sundara Karma – Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect
Sundara Karma’s debut album has already dubbed them as British Indie Rock’s “next great hope,” and I have decided that they are also my next great hope. And, as their newest fangirl, I want you to know that they ARE SO GOOOD. From start to finish this album is amazing – it’s not just a some singles with filler songs in between, so give the whole thing a listen! My favorites are Flame, Happy Family, Deep Relief and A Young Understanding.
Dylan Blankenship – Production Manager
Father John Misty – Pure Comedy
It’s a little out there, but that is not so uncommon for Father John Misty. Released this month, Pure Comedy, is a poem first and a song second. The song delivers the timeless message about the folly of mankind, in something almost reminiscent of a rock opera. Which this DJ would love to see more of. Recommended for those nights with a bag of wine, and nobody to watch you lipsync.
