Khruangbin does a fantastic job of drawing on rock, jazz, soul, funk and psychedelia while combining these Western/American genres with elements of Eastern and Latin influences to create a sound that is identifiable as their own.

I hate CDs!! Okay, that's a lie, I just wanted an excuse to link that song. In fact, it couldn't be further from the truth. Like any self-respecting music department, we love CDs. They remain the best way of storing and transmitting the history of a radio station. Indeed, when the current batch of students is long gone, it will be the CDs we leave behind that will say the most about us.
All of this is to say that the newsletter that will start keeping track of physical adds from here on out. Some of these you will recognize from previous newsletters.
Written reviews will continue, accompanied by shorter descriptions of physical adds. We're so excited!! Enjoy.
Weeks pass. You don't hear anything from MoM. You get worried. You call the station but nobody picks up. You send emails but you get no response. What has become of your favorite music department?! Fear not dear reader. Last week's respite was merely that: a break in the onslaught of new music. Please delight in the bounties that rest can bring.
