So, it turns out that ALUMS CAN ACTUALLY PRODUCE GOOD MUSIC. SURPRISE SURPRISE. TOTALLY UNEXPECTED. Ex-members of Joe Jones, Jon Earle, Andrew Carr and Mike Zimmerman (All ’08), and Ben Seretan ’10 have put out a record as Cool Trucks, which is called Cool Trucks. It is really sweet, and you should definitely give it a listen. It sounds kind of like Clinton-era indie rock.

Doug Walters ’08 writes in about his band Red Wire Black Wire’s new record:
This is Doug Walters from the band Red Wire Black Wire. We graduated in 2008, and just this month our brand new debut full-length, Robots & Roses, was released through Tough Customer Records. We’re on tour now in support.
We’d love it if you guys would give a shout to the Wes community that our record just came out. We worked like hell over the past year, and we’d love to spread the final product with our beloved Wes brethren and sistren. Below is a link to stream the new single. The record is available on iTunes digitally and through mail from our website.
Thanks so much. We really appreciate the support.
You can stream the new single here, find the band’s website here, MySpace page here, and a recent show review here.
