Library workgroup specializes in maintaining and exploring the immense and diverse WOBC Music Library on Saturdays from 4-5pm. Check out some of these gems that our librarians were able to find among the thousands of CDs, LPs, cassettes, and 45s that the station has to offer!

Danny: Mogwai – Happy Songs for Happy People
Happy Songs for Happy People displays a mid-period Mogwai at their finest. It boasts the rousing buildups of Young Team, but also offers electronic-tinged moments that suggest the krauty weirdness of later records. Super deep cut – I don’t know why more people don’t love this album.
Julia S: Joy Division – Closer
I chose a 45 of “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” by Talking Heads. It’s one my favorite songs from one of my favorite bands and just the other day, my dad was telling me about when he saw them live at Finney Chapel when he was at Oberlin in 1979.
I also chose Talking Heads because if there’s anything I love more than workgroup snacks, it’s workgroup jams to Tina Weymouth bass riffs. This was the first album that made me feel like the coolest kid in school when I listened to it while romping around my middle school hallways – a very, very special connection. Finding it in the WOBC Library (in many different formats) made me want to bop and flop my way over to Social Studies just like the good ol’ days. Wow this album is the best ever.
NSFW: Tim Buckley’s voice makes all of my internal organs melt into a puddle of orgasmic liquid wonder. I only recently got into him when I started looking into artists to play on my psych/prog folk radio show this semester. I think “Sing a Song For You” off this album is really beautiful. If you’re into beautiful wonderful passionate things, you should check out the better Buckley. ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
