WCYT-2015
 My honorable mentions for my 2015 top ten list goes to Torres with her sophomore album Sprinter, Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s strangely danceable Multi-Love and Dan Deacon’s wildly fun Gliss Riffer. These albums may not have cracked the final top ten after all listening sessions were completed, but each of the albums have earned my respect in one way or another to be considered for the top ten at one point. While I enjoyed releases like Carrie and Lowell by Sufjan Stevens, Panda Bear, Kurt Vile and many more this year, these albums listed below are solid from top to bottom and I have come back to these albums multiple times. These albums may not surprise some of the heaviest of listeners of WCYT, as you have most likely heard songs from each of these albums so let me know your thoughts hit me up on twitter @Thepoint91

10) Viet Cong – Viet Cong


9) Mitski – Bury Me At Make Out Creek


8) Beach House – Depression Cherry


7) Car Seat Headrest – Teens of Style


6) Courtney Barnett – Sometimes I Sit And Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit.


5) Grimes – Art Angels


4) Ezra Furman – Perpetual Motion People


3) Tobias Jesso Jr – Goon


2) Tame Impala – Currents


1) Father John Misty – I Love You, Honeybear

Robert Reviews – clipping. – CLPPNG

Written by Adam Schenkel. Posted in Uncategorized

Conceptual albums are an amazing thing in theory, but very hard to accomplish. They use complex analogies and stories to push a lot of themes at once and in the end there is some form of lesson in listening to them. CLPPNG, the new rap album from clipping., fails to bring any of that criteria into any physical form, leaving scraps of a torn web of concepts scattered throughout. Some songs blend together thematically, but others just break away from this overall theme of disappointment in rap. The new album really struggles to stay true to one style, and splinters into serious song followed by songs repetitively talking about drugs and committing crimes.

High School Radio Day = Success

Written by Adam Schenkel. Posted in Uncategorized

Wednesday, April 23rd was National High School Radio Day and The Point 91fm opened its doors to the public so they could celebrate with us. Promotional items were given away, CD’s and Shirts were for sale, student DJ’s were available to talk to, and tours of the studio were aplenty. We even let anyone record their voice to play in future spots on the station. All of it combined made the day a success. We wanted to thank all of those who showed up and say “we’ll see you again next year!”
