Welcome to the first edition of the WHCM Update! The aim of this newsletter is to give you an overview of all that’s happening here at Harper Radio. Whether it’s the latest tracks in rotation, notable or brand new shows, or any station news. This marks our second week in the Spring 2023 semester.

FRESH TRACKS THIS WEEK
Andy Shauf – “Wasted On You”
From his new single “Telephone”, released January 18th, 2023
You may know Andy from his 2016 album “The Party” with songs like “The Magician” and “Quite Like You” being a couple of the most popular. His sound can be described as acoustic and reflective, with a hint of indie pop.
July Talk – “I Am Water”
From their new album “Remember Never Before” released January 20th, 2023
Canadian ensemble July Talk released “I Am Water” last week. With distorted vocals and a steady rock beat, it’ll keep your head nodding.
Ezra Furman – “Forever in Sunset”
From her new album “All Of Us Flames” released August 26th, 2022
Ezra Furman rocks. But that’s just an opinion. You may have heard her music on the Netflix show “Sex Education”, which was put out as a soundtrack in 2020. As a bonus, she’s from Chicago!
The Murder Capital – “Return My Head”
From their album “Gigi’s Recovery” released January 20th 2023
From Dublin, “The Murder Capital ” put out their second studio album just last week. Certainly in the sound of post-punk, they also include an aspect of experimental ambiance on other tracks from this album.
Purr – “The Natural”
Off the single of the same name, released January 12th, 2023
Better known for indie rock as found on their debut album “Like New” from 2020, they instead opt for psychedelic folk on their latest release. Steel guitar and all, it’s like taking a melancholy trip out west.
