Album Review: Fleet Foxes – Shore

Posted by WUSC on June 13, 2021

by Fluffy Cat // Alumni DJ A common theme I’ve seen in albums from 2020 has been escapism. From Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You and Phoebe Bridgers’ Punisher, artists have been using their art as a means of salvation from the realities of the world.

Concert Review: Briston Maroney & Mt. Joy

Posted by WUSC on May 27, 2021
