Courtesy of Chelsie Green ’14, whose name and class year rhyme in a very satisfying manner:
He released his debut mixtape, The Wayfarer, last month and has received good press from media such as Spin and The Fader. Download it for some laid-back rap. Hopefully we’ll see some D’Angelo-ing up in here, and at the very least, dancing.
This Tokyo-raised ginger will most likely be getting all emotional, deeply feeling every sound he shares with us. Italian Vogue actually used his song “Tokyo Nostalgic” in a video, which is pretty incredible.
You can count on some trap-ish instrumentals that cause your mind to wander off somewhere. She’s not afraid to move her body for you as she gifts you with her music, so please give her the same respect. Thank you.

From that guy ’12 and his creepy friend Neo Sora ’13:
This showcase of Sam’s capstone creative projects for East Asian Studies will start with a film screening, immediately followed by a movement performance/”living installation” at Eclectic.
NET IDOL is a short Japanese horror film co-created by Sam Lyons and Neo Sora for Professor Miri Nakamura’s Japanese Horror Fiction and Film class. It’s about a severely introverted and pathetic otaku (mega-nerds with obsessive interests, particularly in anime, manga, and video games) in love with the 2D digital representation of his net dating service ”girlfriend.”
“AKUJUNKAN: TOKYO ’96 – ‘07” is Sam’s final project for Eiko Otake (of Eiko & Koma)’s course Delicious Movement for Reflecting on Nakedness. The piece is an attempt to explore the body’s relationship with technology as well as to explore his confused identity and his experience growing up in Tokyo. It will feature both a “living installation” as well as a soundtrack of original music. ??? (‘akujunkan’) means vicious cycle.
Stick around for a few minutes after the show for a sneak preview of BEEN HAD FELT LIKE A CYBORG — the debut C¥BERGIGA EP!
Time: 8 PM
Date: Friday, May 4th
Why: I can’t go because I have a performance tonight, but you should, these guys are like really attractive and everything maybe you’ll score if you play your cards right pretty sure going to their screening and presentation counts as playing your cards right oh i almost forgot here’s the facebook thing you should do that too
“dripmode. yung joc. lil wayne. slimepunk. moist. nasty. wet. future. dripset. trap. bass. rap. drippy. weird. 8bit. C¥BERGIGA. sex. narcotics.” – Oscar Wilde DRIP SEX FUNERAL by C¥BERGIGA
As Music Mu-Thursday (Thurthday Thoundth?) rolls on, I thought it was about time I got back into the Wesleying family business and posted some new sounds from the music scene. C¥BERGIGA, who goes by the alias “Sam Lyons ’12” for many of his nonmusical pursuits, has been posting tracks to his SoundCloud for about a year now, and recently the aural assault has zeroed in on DRIPMODE, the wet, damp, and…wet bloop-based sound of three of his newest tracks. Rave fucking reviews: “Im soaked”. “super soaked”. “DAYUUUUM!”. “im drenched”. Jeauh. Jeauh. SNES-, Atari-, and Game Boy-generated pixels abound.
If #dripmode seems like #yourmode, support the endeavor and give Drip Sex Funeral, some DRIPS AND BLIPS, and/or N0twerking a listen and a free download (!). Check out some of my personal favorites from a few months back after the jump.
