Nov 2018

This November the ZUMIX Staff is cooking up all types of musical treats and being inspired by some amazing musicians, including Massachusetts based artists like Token and JonVair to newcomers with big buzz like Koffee and Cuco. Take a listen below and enjoy!

“thank u, next” by Ariana Grande

“She’s really out here being graceful in spite of everything… so, this one is for Gordon.” – Julianna Quiroz, Administrative Assistant

“Lamp Lit Prose” by Dirty Projectors

“Interesting sonic textures and intricate harmonies down every isle of this ear candy store – and Dirty Projectors now feature Kristin Slipp of Boston’s own Cuddle Magic (one of my faves)!” – Daniel Fox, Director of Creative Media and Tech.

“Goodluck” by Meernaa

“These are my homies from California. Love the slow, greasy tempo, beautiful vocal performance and production, and the Gibson SG guitar riffs/sound, all recorded to tape! They’re playing the Dorchester Art Project on Tuesday, Dec. 4 – check em out while they’re in town!” – Avi Salloway, Z-Tech Live Sound Coordinator

My Mind” by YEBBA

“I have watched this video 30 times this week.  It’s not often that someones technical capability matches their passion – YEBBA has got it all.” – Ali McGuirk, Play It Forward Instructor

“Toast” by Koffee

“Total fire. An anthem of gratitude.” – Brian Paulding, Brass Instructor

“Treehouse” by Token

“This local young man from Salem, MA is displaying technique, style and great work ethics. I can appreciate it, Go Token!!” – Corey DePina, Youth Development and Performance Manager

“Lo Que Siento” by Cuco

“I haven’t had Cuco on repeat all month you’ve had Cuco on repeat all month. ” – Sarah Saydun, Pathways Coordinator

“Life Jacket” by JonVair

“Local artist JonVair has made a real gem with this song. Between a booming baseline and some epic vocals it’s worth a listen.” – Rene Dongo, Radio Program Coordinator

“Heavy Pop” by WU LYF

“The lead singer’s raw and energetic vocals paired with the somewhat soothing, melodic instrumentals is incredibly satisfying for me. In finding that this song was a product of WU LYF’s only full studio album before the band’s unfortunate split, my obsession with it grew. I cling to the small remnants of unique sound that this band created, and will likely never create again. ” – Nikala Pieroni, Development and Communications Associate
