DJRePete revisits CMJ this week, the College Music Journal’s Music Marathon that spanned 35 years of indie music across New York City through 2015. Re-discovery bands from showcase-past, including the Cold War Kids, The Sounds, and Of Montreal. Hit up trippy alt from Michael Rault and Luke Temple of Here We Go Magic, and rock with the Heliotropes and White Reaper. And in the spirit of CMJ, catch new tracks by The Skullers and The Brutalists. Plus, DJRePete explores what the CMJ founders are up to these days with a new festival in New York this week. Spoiler: it’s just not the same. But get nostalgic or live vicariously through this music rediscovery mix in The Listening Booth!
