WCFM The Sawyer Sessions – GMT

WCFM Williamstown is an FCC-licensed frequency-modulating station broadcasting on 91.9 MHz from the basement of Prospect House. Williams College radio has been around since 1941. It is the student-run voice of Williams College. WCFM programming is entirely free-form: DJs have complete control over their shows. They broadcast a beautiful mix of music, talk, and miscellaneous fun. May 2, 2019 | “Everyone has a story” is George Taylor’s (AKA GMT) SoundCloud biography, and today, he’s here to tell us his. Through a flow reminiscent of a Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip and backed by the jazzy undertones of Jackson Corrigan’s keyboard comping, GMT uses his verse to tell his story thus far, from paying off his tuition to reconciling his upbringing and his identity. His set includes tracks from his 2019 album Soul Intention and a freestyle, all of which will have you “feelin’ like a kid again when he gets on the mic and shit.” Composed and cool, he laughs through the set but submerges himself in verses that bounce between intimacy and informality.

WCFM The Sawyer Sessions – Lily Goldberg & Lizzie Ferguson

WCFM Williamstown is an FCC-licensed frequency-modulating station broadcasting on 91.9 MHz from the basement of Prospect House. Williams College radio has been around since 1941. It is the student-run voice of Williams College. WCFM programming is entirely free-form: DJs have complete control over their shows. They broadcast a beautiful mix of music, talk, and miscellaneous fun. February 22, 2019 | “Take it away–yeah, I just said take it away to myself.” Lily Goldberg and Lizzie Ferguson have a point of view and a sense of humor. After listening to this session, it’s hard to believe the duo are only freshman. (Seriously!!) “Wanting to be wanted by someone who wants me a little less” / “saying yes to you is always a fool’s compromise.” Like Snail Mail and Billie Eilish before them, Goldberg and Ferguson tell stories of love with maturity and sass. Influenced by a deep folk tradition (with Ferguson killing it on the fiddle/mandolin combo), the duo’s music fuses sultry vocals (Do I detect a twinge of Norah Jones?) and a garage rock vibe (Angel Olsen, etc.) to produce a country-funky aesthetic. Carried by a solid songwriting, the duo whipped out a 5-piece band to deliver its timeless message. -Ariella M. Personnel: Lily Goldberg – Electric Guitar, vocals Lizzie Ferguson – Fiddle, mandolin Noah Nsangou – acoustic guitar Bass– Isaac van Aelstyn Drums–Kai Soto-Dessen Want to perform?
