WAVES Magazine Volume II Is Here


WAVES Magazine released its second issue last night, the “Senior Edition.”

Editor-in-Chief Kyle Somersall ’13 writes in with a few words on the brand new mag:

This issue highlights 12 members of the Class of 2013 that have been a big part of Wesleyan’s music scene over their four years. There is also a collaboration with Freshleyan (a fashion blog run by Sydney Lowe ’13) and many other great articles. We’re working on getting print copies. Some WAVES members are also handing out stickers so hopefully one lands in your hand and you can spread the love. We hope you enjoy the new issue.

Follow the link to features on up-and-coming artists, the healing powers of Modest Mouse, and interviews with musicians in the class of 2013, among others.

Kevin Brisco ’13 and Taylor Harbison ’13 write in to let you know that they’ve posted a handful of photos from last Thursday’s Flatbush Zombies performance over at Waves Magazine, a recently launched new music publication. You can view the full gallery here, as well as some choice highlights below.

Waves just dropped its first ever issue, and Jay Sharma ’16 writes in with details:

This week marks the release of Waves Magazine‘s first issue! This issue is dedicated to Wesleyan Alumni who are making waves in the world of music. The literature included ranges from alumni interviews, concert reviews, album reviews, editorial pieces, history lessons, opinion pieces, and more. We wanted to reach a wide audience; therefore, we decided to make the first issue a digital version. The entire Waves Magazine team has put in a tremendous amount of time and work. The second issue will be dedicated to Wesleyan Seniors and will be released before the end of the semester. Until then, check out the first issue here, and keep checking the blog to stay up to date on music on and off campus.

Waves Wants Your Music

Are you an artist that recently (or not so recently) dropped some hot fiyaaaah? Then you should submit your music to Waves, Wesleyan’s new music publication.  Waves is taking music submissions to be featured on its new website, which launched Saturday. If you want another platform for more ears to hear your music, submit mp3s with a photo, social media information, and a brief blurb about yourself to weswavesmagazine(at)gmail:

On a campus brimming with musical talent, it is only right that there is a publication on hand to document Wesleyan University’s vibrant and eclectic music scene. Waves is a group of Wesleyan students dedicated to providing a vivid illustration of the remarkable artists, bands, acapella groups, radio shows, ensembles, visiting acts and everything else music that Wesleyan has to offer. In addition to documenting the on-campus music scene, Waves will feature pieces about new releases and upcoming artists in the external, non-Wesleyan world of music. Waves will also be coming out with a full-length magazine featuring artist profiles, album reviews, and longer feature articles about everything and anything related to music. Check the site periodically if you’re looking for some music literature or if you’re in need of some new artists to listen to.

Sign Up For Brand Spankin’ New Music Publication: ‘Waves’

Mckenzii Webster ‘13 and Kyle Somersall ‘13 have spent the past few weeks cooking up a new student group that will publish a Wesleyan-centric music magazine, Waves. Notice the use of a single “V,” distinguishing it from the 2011 Spring Fling performer.

In Somersall’s own words:

Waves will highlight Wesleyan’s vibrant and eclectic music scene, in addition to touching on musicians and bands coming to campus.

While Aural Wes caters to the internet readers, providing blog length coverage of campus acts and news posts, Waves intends to feature longer form articles.

Those interested in contributing to Waves should attend an information session tomorrow at 41 Wyllys (the Career Center), Room 115 at 5:45pm. Additional queries and quandaries can be directed to mwebster@wes or ksomersall@wes.
