New DJs this week! It’s the last day of break, so here are some brand-spanking-new songs for you all go forth with! I’m pretty excited about this week because I got a recommendation from one of the aforementioned super cool new DJs (it's the throwback track btw). I’m personally really excited to see what these next few months bring in terms of exploration for me and for everyone else. Without further ado, this week’s list:

New Five

Throwback Track

Featured Artist
The featured artist of this edition is Hippo Campus. This band has a very interesting, usually fairly upbeat sound that is greatly influenced by the members’ background in jazz. While their music isn’t exactly what you’d call “jazzy,” it has distinctive drum rhythms and bass lines. Their newest album Bambi, from 2018 signaled a significant step forward in their style as more synth was introduced. Overall Hippo Campus is what I’d call great driving music. That description makes sense to me at least. If you want to know more about them, you’re fresh out of luck since their Spotify bio only contains the deer emoji (ironic).

As always, if you have any suggestions for what you’d like to see next week, hit me up and you may just see your song in the newsletter. Exciting, right?

New Five

Throwback Track

Featured Artist

Pearl Jam! Has! A! New! Single! And if you can't already tell, I’m a little bit excited. Pearl Jam is what my mind goes to as soon as anybody mentions the grunge scene (sorry Nirvana). The band’s lead singer and lyricist Eddie Vedder is famous for also being part of Temple Of The Dog, and Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament from Mother Love Bone became their guitarist and bassist respectively. With beginnings like those, nothing could go wrong. Their rough (but not too rough) style set them apart from most rock bands of the 90s and helped them become one of the most influential bands of their time. If you haven’t really dug into their new single, do it. That’s all I have to say.

NEWSLETTER #7

Hey there guys! Here’s this week’s setlist; at the end of a very short long weekend. I’m very excited to share some bands that I’ve only just discovered myself. We can do some collective music-discovering today.

New Five

Throwback Track

Featured Artist

Supergrass is our artist of the week, here at the varsity radio club. They’re an older band, who got started in the ’90s and were inspired by the decidedly punk-pop sound of bands like The Buzzcocks, and traditional Brit-pop vibes of bands like The Kinks. Their music relies heavily on strong piano parts akin to those of Elton John, who is also seeing a comeback in the mainstream eye recently. They’re definitely a product of their time, but in their own exuberant, playful way; which is certainly the best of ways.

Newsletter #6
Back at it with a brand-spanking-new set for you guys after a hectic break! These are some songs with a great chill vibe that I hope you all can appreciate this week. Also, a couple of popular upstarts that you may or may not have heard of. Namely Radkey, the highly subjectively best grunk (grunge punk) band ever. 


New Five


Throwback Track


Featured Artist
Our featured artist this week is Radkey! This band is a group of brothers from humble beginnings who put on a fantastic live show. Their music is a rough-around-the-edges kind of grungey, punkey, rock mix, similar to bands like Nirvana or Silverstein. The group’s lyrics cover topics from growing up, to what it’s like being homeschooled, and just about everything else; which I think is pretty darn cool. Seeing as they’re fairly young, they don’t have too much in the way of released albums, but I can’t wait to see what they do with their head start.
