Forget FratMusic.com; we’ve assembled this playlist for you, carefully comprised of the MOST feel-good sunny-day songs ever, plus some recent releases we just wanted to include. Blast this playlist on the lawn on Georgetown Day, if you can manage to even hear your own music over the DJs and bands playing. Enjoy the weekend, and remember to keep up with all of the great things going on with WGTB– our concerts, our events, our coming-website and current blog, and of COURSE our programming which is about to wrap up for the semester, so listen in while you still can.

At first glance, the album, Sebastien Krueger’s debut full-length Inter Arbiter, following up his critically acclaimed EP The Vestibule, looks like it will undoubtedly be amazing. Yes, physically looks. The inside cover of the album itself won me over, I was and still am tempted to figure out a way to wallpaper a room in this print. Further exploration of the album cover led me to the track details––and who should I see featured on Track 6 but Zach Condon, golden god of music behind Beirut , man of my heart? I was on board. I proceeded to play Inter Arbiter with only the highest expectations––but was, surprisingly enough, absolutely, overwhelmingly, sorely disappointed.

Before you ask yourself, “Does this really count?” Ask yourself, “Does it really matter?” The answer is, “No, it doesn’t matter that this isn’t really a cover of Nirvana’s song, it’s pathetic artistic vision makes it worthy of this week’s worlds worst youtube cover. To be fair, you don’t know what the inspiration for Beverley Knight was when she sings, “Ooooh, Summer has begun!” I mean, maybe it is a cover of Cobain’s distraught, tense song about emotional identity. A cover not in words, but in sentiment. Kurt would be proud.

Music Directors’ note: Avi Buffalo was our Artist of the Week this past week here at WGTB. We can’t seem to get enough of this album!
We’ve been posting video from our first annual Student Showcase held in late March, and so far we’ve seen performances by Stout Cortez and Bike Club. Check out the performance by The Darling Snaps (featuring two of your three loyal Music Directors here at WGTB; shameless self-promotion) below.
