From the station:
Jan Pastor ’19 has been listening to “Two Thousand and Seventeen” – Four Tet. Jan says, “Four Tet blends multiple genres together, incorporating hip hop drum elements, live instruments, and more electro-synthesized sounds to his work. This is a smooth instrumental track that’s perfect for studying; it’s not invasive. Check out his latest album, New Energy.”
Own Schmidt ’21 has been listening to: “The Hotelier – Home, Like NoPlace Is There ( fav tracks: Your Deep rest, Discomfort Revisited ); Far – Tin Cans with Strings to You ( fav tracks: Job’s Eyes, Girl, Seasick ); and Trippie Redd – A Love Letter To You ( fav tracks: Deeply Scared, Poles 1469, Love Scars ).” What does he have to say for himself? “Because of the grey and cold weather, I’ve gone into full sadboi mode, so the “emo” stuff like Far and The Hotelier has been a lot of fun to listen to. I should clarify that I’m generally not an emo fan, but both of those albums are incredible. A lot of emotion, unconventional song structure, and in the case of Far, some sick post-hardcore riffs. Trippie Redd’s first album, A Love Letter to You, is a hip-hop record, but I would honestly call it emo rap. It’s emotional, its catchy as all hell, and his music, voice, and tone is very different from anyone else doing the singing/rapping autotune trend right now. Also a sidenote, Florist’s 2017 album is great as well if you get a chance.”
