WRCU Rotations

Various WRCU DJ's

1.“Devil I Know” by Allie X

“Devil I Know,” the lead single to Ms. X’s upcoming album “Cape God,” is as eerie and witchy as it is an absolute earworm. It’s sung with all the confidence of an artist who doesn’t mind existing in the underground because she knows at least that her discography is utterly unclockable.

Caribou is the stage name for Dan Snaith. In anticipation for his new album, “Suddenly,” set for release in 2020, dance single “Never Come Back” reveals Caribou’s revival of the original sounds of electronica and dance.

3.“Headaches” by Raveena 

This track comes as Raveena’s first release since her 2019 debut album, “Lucid,” and her first release of the new year. The bedroom-y pop production and dreamy vocals create an atmosphere of intimacy between the artist and the listener, and the result is a beautiful song about the dizzying emotional heights of a new love.

4. “Shampoo Bottles” by Peach Pit 

Peach Pit’s newest single “Shampoo Bottles”continues the rise of surf rock revival music for the upcoming warmer months. The lyrics, while they detail a somewhat melancholic experience of a fling long-forgotten represented by leftover items, contrast the smooth-gliding guitars and groovy drums.

5. “Headlights” by Squirrel Flower 

A gem off of Squirrel Flower’s new album “I Was Born Swimming,” this song is ghostly and cool as she sings the first verse. Squirrel Flower’s soothing voice and rolling lyrics inspire images of walking through woods and skylines from mountains, typical of her quiet, pondering style. The song is a moment of solitary reflection.

6. “Leave It Alone” by Hayley Williams

“Leave It Alone” comes as the second single from Williams’ forthcoming album, “Petals for Armor.” In her first foray as a solo artist, Williams gives us a taste of a sound that is drastically different from the Paramore aesthetic, yet drips with the emotional quality that resonated so well with her original fans.

7. “We’ve Got a Good Thing Going” by Lady Lamb 

This new single by indie rock artist Lady Lamb (aka Aly Spaltro) starts as a soft, thoughtful reflection on fear which climbs to higher ground as the artist faces her anxieties. The song is directly inspired by watching a woman bungee jump off the Stratosphere Tower in LA — that feeling is completely encapsulated.

8.“Baby” by Four Tet

Every inch of the track’s overlying vocals is woven with precision between entrancing and energizing beats. As the first single off of the electronic artist’s upcoming album, “Sixteen Oceans,” this song is an enticing window into the mind of an established musician with more than a few more tricks up his sleeve.

9. “Tap the Pack” by Sløtface 

Sløtface features female vocalist Haley Shea backed by a fast drum beat, raw guitar and bass. This song has a punk, garage rock sound, pairing angsty lyrics with an upbeat tune. The lyrics create a metaphor for coming to terms with growing up and still being confused.
