Eric Wiersema DJ Profile

I am just a regular guy who loves music of all types and I love turning people onto new music.  I appreciate all types of music but my personal tastes definitely lean toward punk, pop-punk, post-hardcore, and indie folk.  Some of my favorite artists at the moment include: Speedy Ortiz, At The Drive In, Cursive, The Good Life, Sharon Van Etten, Courtney Barnett, Pinegrove, Pixies, Dinosaur Jr, Sleater-Kinney, PUP, and Beach Slang.  I love going to shows in the city, some of my favorite venues include Lincoln Hall, Subterreanean, Empty Bottle, Metro, and Concord Music Hall.  I am interested in volunteering for CHIRP because I love discovering new music and love turning people onto new music and I hope to do both of these through work in the programming department or as a DJ.  Through volunteering with CHIRP, I also hope to become more connected with Chicago's local music community and work with like-minded people who share my intense passion for independent and local music!

5:24pm Travis Valentine 10 Songs (BMG)
Track Notes: 020 marks the 30th anniversary year for the Glasgow post-Britpoppers, who didn’t really gain notoriety until their second album, 1999’s The Man Who, spent 11 weeks atop the UK charts and winning British Album of the Year at the 2000 Brit Awards, and winning the band the Best British Group gong. The band become contemporaries of the comfortable, adult-contemporary and folk-influenced rock that flowed out of Britain in the late 90s and early 00s after the decline of Britpop. Instead of Blur, Oasis, and Pulp, there were Coldplay, Doves, Embrace, and Travis. Travis stood out from their contemporaries for their country inflections, college-rock proclivities (compared to Coldplay’s arena readiness and Doves’ psychedelia), and their Scottishness. On their ninth proper album, 10 Songs, lead singer Fran Healy’s tenor is still clear as day, and the songs teeter between major and minor keys. There are moments of reservation and moments of flourish, like “The Only Thing” (2), which features a steel guitar, a string section, and Susanna Hoffs on co-lead vocals. “Valentine” (3) lumbers and crunches like an outtake from Blur’s self-titled album. But mostly, 10 Songs is a collection of well-executed soft-rock from a band who understands the craftsmanship behind such tunes, instead of just leaning on schmaltz and bombast.
