91.7 The Edge would like to express our gratitude to our departing or graduating E-board members Paul Raef, Matt Conroy, Justin Cunningham and Adam McConnell. We appreciate all the hard work and time you have given to this station to keep it on the air. Without you, we surely would have fallen into disarray long ago.
We also would like to extend our gratitude to any upcoming graduates that have ever worked at WSUW. It is because of you that we have listeners and for a radio station, that’s pretty important. Hopefully you had as much fun working here as the listeners had listening to your work.
Finally, we would like to extend congratulations to all members of the UW-Whitewater class of 2014. All of us here at The Edge wish you the best of luck for your future and hope you continue to make UWW proud!
Starting this week the new album, I Never Learn by Lykke Li. This is the Swedish artist’s third studio album which was released for air play earlier this week. The album is the final in a trilogy of albums, it is the most pop like of the three. I never learn also different with songs that stand out from the progression of the three giving it a new and fresh vibe. The single, “No Rest for the Wicked,” The album is fulls of the flowing vocals and music that continues on from her prior albums. The album has been highly rated by critics who believe that the album is a redefinition of pop music. Lykke Li sure has put out an album to relax to on a warm summer day.
Spinning right now as our current No.4 is the second studio album by Foster the People. Their album, Supermodel brings everything that was there for their debut album Torches (2011), yet it goes even further. Listeners will find the same neo-psychedelic pop vibes that could be heard in hit “Pumped Up Kicks,” but also hear a fresh new revamped sound. Their album also happens to be a concept album where they attempt to tackle ideas about consumerism, pop culture and social issues. The album focuses on how we as Americans are forced to compare ourselves to the “Supermodels.” They challenge the listener to stop presenting themselves in a way that is fake which takes from the vibrancy of their unique and individual lives. Tracks to focus on that are in rotation here at 91.7 The Edge are “Best Friend,” “Coming of Age,” and “Pseudologia Fantastica.”
