Jason Myles Goss keeps it simple

Brooklyn-based solo artist Jason Myles Goss plays simple, subtle music for “good, solid, salt-of-the-earth people.” His songs function on a basic level, contain characters and work together as a storybook of sorts. Goss is planning on touring the United States later this year.

Slavery is alive now

Almost a hundred and fifty years after the Emancipation Proclamation, slavery is still alive and unfortunately, all too well.

Local hip-hop act Solo Sexx shakes up male-dominated scene

All-female hip-hop act Solo Sexx have been making waves in the local scene, one which they refer to as “male and stale.” Their sound is anything but stale, earning them a bi-monthly gig at Northampton night club Diva’s.

That old-time religion

Collegian columnist Leigh Greaney has found that more Americans than ever are saying they’re not religious—and she thinks that’s okay.

Outer Stylie blend psychadelic and heavy rock

Mallory knows how to do it themselves

Mallory and its Do-It-Yourself subculture rips the screws out of the capitalist machine. Since the 1970s, DIY culture has pitted itself against the materialist dogma. In a world where music is all about advertising and big labels, Niko Para, Justin Fallon and Andre Ricard of Mallory say “no thanks – we can handle this ourselves.”

Chills from the Frills

There’s nothing like a heavy dose of irony to kick up punk appreciation. The not-so-frilly group “The Frills” know this well. The group members, all University of Massachusetts students, don’t even really like punk music, but they consider themselves part of the genre.

Gender assumptions about men and women and relationships outdated and hindrance to equality

Columnist Leigh Greaney discusses how genderizing emotional wants and needs are assumptions that destroy opportunities for gender equality.

Darlingside is hungry for some sushi and Japanese stardom

On their Pacific tsunami ride to glory, Darlingside stopped by the University of Massachusetts and Sweet Baby Lou and the Reverends of Funk’s office at WMUA to spread their sound into the ears of campus Feb. 3. With their indie/folk/rock beats and catchy harmonic rhythms, the guys of Darlingside showed UMass the fruits of their labor, planted in their Williams College base. Make no mistake, this small town college band has been growing tall around the Northampton area.

Naked

Merit over melanin

With the new survey on SPIRE asking students to “self-identify” themselves into a racial category, Leigh Greaney argues that identity should have nothing to do with race on a university campus.

From South Africa, Leigh Greaney examines how America has been misrepresented abroad and how Africa has been misrepresented at home.

How much has changed in South Africa?

Writing from Cape Town, Leigh Greaney speaks of the racial divide that still haunts a once colonized country.

Cultural Electricity
