“I have been listening to a mixed playlist consisting of classic rock, modern psychedelic, indie, 80s-90s pop/alternative/indie, modern hip hop, and old rap my favorite artist, or should I say duo King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.

My favorite song is in a complete different category — a rap song by Travis Scott ; NO BYSTANDERS. Also my favorite album at the moment is a classic album, ‘Bleach’ by Nirvana.” John Alviar, senior biology major from Stratford, NJ (Camden County).

A student in the Rowan University bookstore holds up the new Badflower album OK, I'm Sick.

“At midnight Badflower dropped their new album, OK I’m Sick, and I’m listening as I work. You should check it out! Gritty rock from a younger band out of LA. I’ve seen them live a few times now in Philly, Asbury Park and Lancaster, but I can tell that this is the album that’s going to make them huge.”
