NEW MUSIC: Let The Connectors “Half Measures” Melt Your Face #SoundCheck

2 piece garage rock band The Connectors have a new video out courtesy of Wreck Room. The video highlights the interplay between singer / guitarist Andy and drummer Danny over a dirty blues stomp. Andy's Lou Reed drawl gives “Half Measures” an almost gothic vibe, while his guitar work keeps it rooted firmly in the sludgy blues-inflected alt rock the duo does so well.

FEATURE: The Role of the Black College Student

Back then when they led those marches in the south they chanted, “We Shall Overcome”. When they thought marching wasn't enough they began shouting passionately with fists in the air, “Black Power”. Today, we scream, “Black Lives Matter” with fire burning in our hearts. The role of the black college student has always been to liberate their minds.
