Flummoxed by the volume of new releases (music, merch, or otherwise) coming today for Record Store Day? We asked the campus’ most tasteful people with ears (the WBAR staff) to sift the wheat from the chaff for us. See their picks below. Italics are our comments.
Grace McCreight, General Manager:
*Black Milk, “Synth or Soul”— vinyl-only, RSD exclusive
Sample here. A-sides and B-sides split between synth- and soul-inflected beats by this hip-hop producer.
*Billy Bragg, “No One Knows Nothing Anymore/ Song of the Iceberg 7″ (duh)
Famed rocker/punker/folkster/liberal/presumed lover
Madeline Steinberg, College Rock Director:
*Ty Segall, “Ty Rex 2 – 7″
One of the most acclaimed recent artists; he was cool enough for Pitchfork to love him, but also cool enough that all the other music critics still loved him anyway. Below: Segall being the life of the party in the video for “Goodbye Bread.”
If you think it’s been too cold the past few weeks to spend much time outside, try taking a dip in the ocean… every weekend… for the whole winter.
Rain or shine, snowstorm or hurricane, the members of the Coney Island Polar Bear Club have been swimming at the boardwalk every Sunday during the winter months for the last 110 years.
The rush of being enveloped by the icy waters and the supposed rejuvenating properties of the ocean are what keep this motley crew coming back for more every weekend.
Check out the video above to see their cold plunge and hear what a few of the members had to say about the experience.

Spectator and Spectrum are here throughout the next two weeks to bring you updates and interviews from Columbia Olympians in our #LondonLions series. Today, we profile one of our #LondonLions, Lisa Stublić. Follow @CU_Spectator and @CUSpecSports to make sure you’re up to date.
Lisa Stublić, CC ’06, is a Croatian marathoner. At Columbia, she trained under head track and field coach Willy Wood, where she made NCAA championships all four years for cross-country, and placed 10th her senior year to earn All-American status. Though American-born, post-graduation she immigrated to her father’s homeland country of Croatia, subsequently joining a track club where she began training for longer distances. In her marathon debut in 2010, Stublić set a Croatian record and earned the Olympic ‘A’ standard to allow her to compete in London.
Stublić is set to race on Sunday, August 5 at 6 a.m. We reached out to Stublić over email and got her to answer a few questions before she left for London.
1. What Olympic athlete are you gonna ask to call you maybe?
I am not going to ask any Olympic athlete to call me. I am already in a very serious relationship, so this is not an interest of mine. More »
In honor of Nickelback’s Here and Now Tour kicking off this month, the Eye has prepared a little quiz to distract you from studying real art.
Out of the following 10 quotes, six are from Nickelback songs, and four are from the poetry of T.S. Eliot.
But don’t be fooled—this is a lot harder than you think. Post your scores in the comments.
a. And would it have worth it, after all,
Would it have been worth while
b. So I would have had him leave,
So I would have had her stand and grieve
