There is no outdoing the band’s near perfect, third studio album, The Suburbs. </span></p> Tue, 19 Nov 2013 06:28:11 +0000 Hershlay Raymond 29041 at http://wfit.org Arcade Fire Embraces Their Afterlife The Neighbourhood Shine Without Colour http://wfit.org/post/neighbourhood-shine-without-colour <p></p><p><span style="color: rgb(17, 17, 17); line-height: 1.15; font-family: &quot;Droid Serif&quot;; font-size: 15px; white-space: pre-wrap;">The </span>Neighbourhood’s<span style="color: rgb(17, 17, 17); line-height: 1.15; font-family: &quot;Droid Serif&quot;; font-size: 15px; white-space: pre-wrap;"> debut album “I Love You” begins boldly. “How could you question God's existence when you question God himself?” &nbsp;That’s the first lyric in the opening track “How.” From there, the Californian quintet starts a record filled with heavy existentialist themes about love and hate told in a light indie pop fashion.</span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.15; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span id="docs-internal-guid-31951192-542c-7c49-e865-cf115b8fb886"><span style="color: rgb(17, 17, 17); font-family: &quot;Droid Serif&quot;; font-size: 15px; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">The Neighbourhood may spell their band name with a ‘u’, but they are an American group from California. Their Los Angeles origins seem fitting for them. &nbsp;L.A. is the city of angels and seems to gleams with gold, but that is merely the surface. Underneath the shine is a gritty underbelly. &nbsp;Los Angeles is filled with movie stars and pollution; glamour and corruption. The Neighbourhood’s message may seem to ooze with disgust and melodrama; however, there is an incredibly polished surface. </span></span></p><p> Tue, 06 Aug 2013 15:12:30 +0000 Hershlay Raymond 24714 at http://wfit.org The Neighbourhood Shine Without Colour Marine And Environmental Science Campers Race In A Recycle Regatta http://wfit.org/post/marine-and-environmental-science-campers-race-recycle-regatta <p>When students pack up and leave for summer, college campuses may seem desolate, but at Florida Tech, the students are quickly replaced by young campers. One camp in particular is the Marine and Environmental Science Camp which specializes in teaching oceanography, ocean engineering, environmental science, marine science, and meteorology through hands-on activities.</p><p> Fri, 19 Jul 2013 19:43:30 +0000 Hershlay Raymond 23980 at http://wfit.org Marine And Environmental Science Campers Race In A Recycle Regatta Roadkill Ghost Choir Present Their Beggars’ Guild http://wfit.org/post/roadkill-ghost-choir-present-their-beggars-guild <p>Roadkill Ghost Choir may seem like a strange name for a band, but for them it’s fitting. Their music is raw, like fresh roadkill, while simultaneously being hauntingly lovely. They have similar sensibilities to the indie folk bands that are currently at the peak of popular music today, such as Mumford and Sons and The Lumineers, but they have a sound entirely all their own.</p> Fri, 19 Jul 2013 17:45:39 +0000 Hershlay Raymond 23964 at http://wfit.org Roadkill Ghost Choir Present Their Beggars’ Guild
