Raven Rundown – Jenny Owen Youngs

Active since: 2005 Discography: 3 Albums Last released material: Sadly she has not released new music since her third album came out in 2012, hopefully she puts something new out soon! Why she’s awesome: Her music is a great mix of sounds, each album feels both very different from the others yet still very much recognizably her.  The listener can map her progress as an artist easily across her three albums, from the twangy girl with a guitar vibes of the first, to the matured and sadder tone of the second, to the confident and at times...

Interview: Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die

Every Time I Die is a band that has aged like a fine red wine. With the release of the band’s eighth LP “Low Teens”, Every Time I Die has come back with a visceral right hook to the face of an album packed with a relentless track list that serves as a reminder of the volatility of life. Written primarily in the frigid winter months, Low teens exhibits ETID’s ability to constantly be evolving. Songs like “Petal” and “The Coin Has a Say” display the band’s usual spastic, heavy nature, while...

Diversity has now, more than ever, been a hot topic of discussion. With diversity, one can connect nearly every element of a society. Issues regarding diversity in the realm of social justice can tie in with the artistic community, and these connections go on. Many individuals perceive the topic of diversity as something very intimidating to address. To relieve this tension, CSU has been hosting a Diversity Symposium this week: with a ride range of panels presented across campus each day in order to familiarize students on the topic of...

Album Review- "Love Lines," by The Maytags

Album Review- "Love Lines," by The Maytags

It’s a truly remarkable experience when an album you weren’t expecting too much out of quickly shoots to the top of your favorites list after just one listen. The record, “Love Lines,” by The Maytags, is one such example of these glorious, diamond in the rough, hidden gem discoveries. With a basic album cover consisting of only a pink background and simple white and grey script, this record will probably not be the first to catch your eye. But The Maytags do not need any flashy ornamentation to draw you in, because their music absolutely...

What is That Mysterious Ticking Noise?

Last Friday, in the midst of the student exodus for The Rocky Mountain Showdown, a mysterious ticking noise began to pervade our air waves, here at KCSU-FM. And that’s never good. Being a student radio station means that technological issues are never exactly unexpected or shocking. But, this malfunction was uniquely challenging. Our radio adviser, Hannah Copeland, sent out a news update to the station’s staff and volunteers. In it, she explained what it was that turned our Friday into a story-worthy day: “The good news is...

Riot Fest Sucks (But Less Than Our Football Team)

It’s become popular humor within the fans that go to Riot Fest to say that the festival sucks. The festival even promotes itself by using #RiotFestSucks. Over this Labor Day weekend, some of the KCSU staff skipped The Rocky Mountain Blowout and Tour De Fat to experience how much Riot Fest does not actually suck. They bring large acts from a multitude of genres and get them all in one place at one time. This year’s Riot Fest was branded with The Original Misfits reunion. The band hadn’t performed together for over 33 years...

Posted by on 4:05 pm in Local, Sports, Sports Blogs, Uncategorized | Comments Off on CSU Rams Embarrassed by CU, Now on to UTSA.

The Rams took a beating from their in state rivals the Colorado Buffalo. With a final score of 44 to 7 the Rams could not get anything going on offence or stop the high tempo offence of the Buffs on defense. 69,850 fans came to watch the 2016 Rocky Mountain Showdown. That crowd dissipated after half way through the third quarter. The word repeated by all the players after the game was “Embarrassed”. This word was said repeatedly by head Coach Mike Bobo’s post-game press conference. This team right now needs to choose do they want to do better...

Tiny Moving Parts Interview

Tiny Moving Parts Interview

Math rock, Screamo, Emo, and even Twinkly Emo are all genres that have been used to describe Tiny Moving Parts. This three-piece family band out of Benson, Minnesota stands out in all of these scenes because they fall under all of them and even more. Versatile, fast-paced hammering combined with lead singer Dylan Mattheisen’s almost Tom Delonge inspired writhing vocals gives the band a unique sound that isn’t present anywhere else. Along with brothers Bill and Matt Chevalier on drums and bass/vocals, respectively, the band feeds...
