Hear and Now

Neon Indian's new album "Era Extraa," released Sept. 13, features driving synth kick-drums, Nintendo-like beeps and clicks and wall-of-sound instrumentals. With the soft filtered vocals of Alan Palomo, the album sounds like a brilliant union of shoegaze, chiptune and straight pop. It is more confident and takes more risks than 2009's "Psychic Chasms," an album that helped engender the genre known as "chillwave." Does Neon Indian's break from its original sound mark the death of the genre it helped create?

Time will tell if Dartmouth really does have talent

(10/10/11 7:00pm)

Does Dart­mouth “got tal­ent?” Will one of our class­mates share the stage with Nick Can­non? We’re about to find out. This week­end many of our own headed to New York City to au­di­tion for "Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent," NBC’s va­ri­ety show­case se­ries. "Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent" con­tracted 99 Rock to hold au­di­tions here on cam­pus for the show’s sev­enth sea­son. The re­al­ity show reached out to the Dart­mouth com­mu­nity and 99 Rock in an at­tempt to “get the word out to young peo­ple” and look for a more di­verse group, said Chris Zhao ’13, pro­gram di­rec­tor of 99 Rock. "Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent" gave 99 Rock five passes for sched­uled au­di­tions and close to sixty “fast track passes” to dis­trib­ute through­out the com­mu­nity. Al­though 99 Rock hoped more peo­ple would try out, those who did show­cased some of Dart­mouth and the Upper Val­ley’s finest tal­ent. The au­di­tion event was pro­moted on air and brought all sorts of acts to the Col­lis patio on Tues­day af­ter­noon. Of the per­form­ers, a few par­tic­u­larly stood out to the 99 Rock judges: the dance troupe SHEBA, an Upper Val­ley 18-year old “ma­gi­cian kid” and Gary Le ’15, who has pre­vi­ously au­di­tioned for "Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent." Le, a mas­ter of the Chi­nese yo-yo, tried out four years ago while he was in high school and made it past the pre­lim­i­nary round. This time, how­ever, he won’t be wait­ing in line, since 99 Rock gave Le one of the five sched­uled au­di­tions. We hope every­one put their best foot for­ward at au­di­tions, and will let you know if any­one from Hanover makes it onto the show.

Losing to Yale, women's soccer finds itself in another early-season hole

(10/10/11 2:00am)

Dartmouth came out with a fighting spirit in the first half, attempting to intimidate the Yale team right after the whistle. Early in the game, midfielder Ally Dutton '12 had a scoring opportunity with a header, but junior goalie Adele Jackson-Gibson saved the ball. Much to the Big Green's chagrin, Jackson-Gibson soon saved another shot, this time by Aly O'Dea '12.

Briefly Noted

Forward and assistant captain Doug Jones '12 was named one of the 20 men's hockey candidates for the 2012 Lowe's Senior CLASS Award, according to a Thursday announcement on The CLASS award, which stands for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, recognizes excellence in academics and athletics, as well as commitment to the community. Jones was the Big Green's second highest scorer last season, registering 29 points. As an economics major, Jones has maintained a 3.5 GPA and earned Eastern College Athletic Conference All-Academic honors during each of the past three seasons. The field of 20 candidates will be cut to 10 finalists midway through the season before fans, media and Division I coaches select the CLASS award's final winner.
