By Barbara Martinez


It’s the first day of Spring! The weather’s getting warmer, and things are looking up, so treat yourself to our latest batch of rack additions. Not only does this edition feature The War on Drugs’ early Album of the Year candidate, but we’ve also got some 70’s power-pop bliss from Warm Soda, the icy cool of Trust, Burger Records surf-rockers traumahelikopter, and the summery nostalgia of Belle Brigade! We heard that all of these albums are on the warm-up mixtape for the AU Men’s Basketball Team (We’re Dancing™), so give them a spin on your show!

With Love,
The Music Department
