By Kyle Pepitone Over the summer of 2019, New Jersey’s very own Jeff Nelson released his newest single titled “Need You.” Following an album of cover songs, “Need You” is Nelson’s second original single and perfectly showcases his abilities as a singer-songwriter. The song’s catchy drumbeat throughout the song gives the song a more upbeat […]

By Andre Souza Before his death in 2016, Leonard Cohen left his son instructions to finish writing the songs that they had begun writing together. Using vocal recordings his father made, Adam Cohen created the 2019 album entitled, Thanks for the Dance, under his father’s name. The album is a collection of stories that Adam […]

By Andre Souza Milky Chance’s new album, “Mind the Moon” is a unique addition to the diverse discography that they established early in their music careers. The German duo manages to give listeners a fresh and original experience while staying faithful to their style. When listened in its entirety, it is easy for anyone listening […]

By Andre Souza             Kyle Lux’s debut album, No Roof Access is the album fans have been waiting for since the release of his first single in the spring of 2019 entitled “Rollin’ Stone.” The album tells a unique story about the struggles of adjusting and feeling out of place, and its instrumental blend of […]

By Lee Ben-Hakoon Angel Olsen’s second show of her All Mirrors tour leg took place in Asbury Lanes, an uber cool bowling alley/diner/concert venue in South Jersey. Warming up for Angel was Vagabon, a Cameroonian-American softly spoken artist with a powerful singing voice. Her beautiful blend of indie, alternative, and synth genres blended beautifully together, […]

By Sydney Williams I got the chance to see Wicked Divas at The Avenel Performing Arts Center on Friday, October 25!  The venue is only a few months old in the area of Avenel, New Jersey, so I was very excited to see the performance space. This musical showcase featured Ai Mauzey and Dee Roscioli […]

By Gary Brown In the third studio album from R&B artist BJ the Chicago Kid, we hear the artist maturing his sound while continuing to maintain the same boyish personality and goofiness that his fans have heard since his debut effort, Pine-Apple Now-Laters in 2012. Although the artist has not had any major mainstream success […]

By Evan Dekens With a title like House of Sugar, it’s no surprise that (Sandy) Alex G’s new record, like much of his previous albums, lingers on the concept of consumption and pleasure. The allusions to the story of Hansel and Gretel, notable in the song “Gretel”, gesture at the revised compulsions of the fairy […]

By Gary Brown On Danny Brown’s fifth studio album, “unknowhatimsayin?”, we get to hear a side of Danny Brown that was seen in small bits on his previous efforts, “Atrocity Exhibition” and “Old”. Instead of 1 or 2 songs that are lighthearted and comical, we get 11 songs, giving us an album unlike anything he […]

By Sam Delgado      Born out of grateful dead cover band Richard Pictures, Mountain Brews released their bite sized self-titled EP in June this year. John Pullman “Jake” Longstreth, Jr., Richard Pictures’s guitarist, formed Mountain Brews as its frontman and promoted the Mountain Brews EP release on the beats1 radio show Time Crisis, which […]

By Kyle Pepitone Metalcore band Motionless In White (often shortened to MIW) released their fifth studio album, Disguise, this summer on June 7th and it only gets better with each listen. Although some tracks on the band’s previous album, Graveyard Shift, addressed topics about being who you were meant to be, Disguise as a whole focuses […]

By Sam Delgado      I was first blessed by the rich soulful vocals of Brittany Howard in my freshman year of high school. Alabama Shakes’s album Sound & Color revealed a world of new and exciting sounds that I wasn’t getting from repeatedly listening to Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco; Alabama […]

By Katherine Braunstein Alumni goes over recent Entertainment updates.

By Jesper Horsted The stars aligned and I was by chance going to be in New York at the same time as my favorite band, Surfaces, in their first concert out of their home state. Unfortunately, the show was long sold out. After many attempts to find tickets, including long Ticketmaster phone calls and going […]

By Trevor Gioia “There’s going be a showdown,(ELO)” For those who don’t know what Electric light orchestra. They are band from the early 1970s to the late 1980s that picked up right where the Beatles left off. Jeff Lynne is the lead singer, producing, and writing most of the songs in the ELO catalog of […]

By Louis Biondolillo On Saturday, July 20, I had the opportunity to go to Asbury Park’s House of Independents to see a rapper who goes by the name AK perform. AK comes from South Brunswick, New Jersey and this concert was very geared to his hometown audience, selling South Brunswick themed apparel which seemed very […]

By Julianna Cianfano On July 17 I went to the first-ever Sad Summer Festival at the Stone Pony Stage in Asbury Park, NJ (historic, if I say so myself)! It was a full day festival with a full bill of 7 bands, 3 of which were headliners. The Sad Summer Festival is a touring festival […]

By Jeffrey Alexander Lopez American Football is perhaps one of the most prolific and genre-defining emo bands of all time. With the release of their classic 1999 self titled album, the band left a rippling effect on the scene of emo music. Frontman Mike Kinsella, had already established himself as an emo prophet prior to […]

By Donald Moran Aly & A.J. appeared at The Wellmont Theater, promoting their latest album “Sanctuary” on May 14th, to ¾ full house of mostly college-aged women, excited to see the former Disney teen stars live.

By Laila Abuelhawa Friday, May 10 at Warsaw was a sold-out show. The weather was warm and on this night, the rain stayed away in our favor. Headlining was The Drums, an indie pop band from Brooklyn! The show started at 9, opening with Tanukichan, an indie band from California. I had arrived just in […]

By Lia Berisha John Vanderslice opened the show for Pedro the Lion at Union Transfer on Tuesday, May 7th. Thanks to WMSC’s ticket giveaway I got to experience his performance. I learned a lot about the opener during the show as he had a Q&A in between songs. He is a producer who has collaborated […]

By Donald Wagenblast When The Devil Wears Prada announced that they would be embarking on a tour to commemorate the ten-year anniversary of their breakthrough album With Roots Above and Branches Below,I was so disappointed to learn that the tour had no New Jersey. However, the band’s connection to New Jersey was too strong to […]

By Ivory Sligh The start of my Marianas Trench concert journey began during my afternoon lunch break on May 3rd when I mistakenly went to the box office to pick up my winning tickets thanks to WMSC 90.3. Being a complete concert novice, I was unaware that you are supposed to pick up tickets at […]

By Lia Berisha Thanks to WCSM’s 90.3 Twitter page I won tickets to see Girlpool, Hatchie, and Teenage Halloween on Saturday, April 28th at Asbury Lanes. The atmosphere at the lanes was very laid back and relaxed with people either bowling or getting their beer n’ tater tot fix. It was like the old Asbury […]

By Jackson Yeake Action Bronson performed at the Wellmont theater on Wednesday April 24th. He was accompanied by Meyhem Lauren, an artist which I had never heard of before. I have only ever been to the Wellmont on one other occasion when I was 10 and vaguely remember it. That being said I was very […]

By Mike Stringham I got the chance to see Deafheaven and Baroness at Starland Ballroom on Friday, April 5th. This was my 10thtime (woo!) seeing Deafheaven live within the last 5 years and first time seeing Baroness, even though I’ve been listening to them since the beginning of this decade. I went to the show […]

By Sam Carliner On Thursday, April 25 I saw Girlpool at The Bowery Ballroom. This was my first time seeing Girlpool and my first show at The Bowery Ballroom. The venue was really nice with a lot of space to move around, but still intimate enough that the artists felt very close. The show had […]

By Isabella Ciervo On Wednesday, March 20th, I had the honor to witness Lucy Dacus perform at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City. The venue itself flooded me with awe as I pushed through the concert hall doors. Purple and blue light soaked the audience as one of the wonderful openers, Fenne Lily, greeted us […]

By Shannon Donaghy Brooklyn’s Market Hotel is a small unique venue right off the Myrtle Ave subway station, so close in fact, that you can see the trains running by through the windows behind the stage. The venue was nothing short of impressive, especially because it didn’t seem like it would be much more than […]
