Welcome back Colonels to another fall semester! I’m trying not to stress out from the beginning, so let’s just worry about the music shall we? This summer really didn’t have good anthems in my opinion. I’m not just talking about mainstream either. However, there were a ton of great songs released that are noteworthy.

During the summer I spent a lot of time at our campus radio station 90.7 WCLH. I added a ton of new music to the alternative rotation.  I’ll be returning with my Indie Flavour show this Wednesday 3-5 pm. Also, tune in September 11th at 8pm for the Electronic Caboodle which is WCLH’s newest block of music playing four hours of electronic music.

Here’s a list of songs you should add to that “end of summer 2015” Spotify playlist in case you missed out on them…some of which you probably did.
