Music Monday: Penn State’s Summer Tunes

While most of us were busy working on classes and internships over the summer, some of Penn State’s hottest artists were working on new material. Haven’t had time to keep up with your favorite Penn State musicians? Don’t worry, we have you covered with our summer music recap.

The Wondershop Showdown

This ska/punk group has been a Penn State favorite for the past few years, gaining a huge Penn State fan base since playing at both THON and Movin’ On this past year. Their first official album, titled A Night At The Movies, was released just a few weeks ago. You can download the full album for free here.

Malik LRB

This Penn State rapper first made a name for himself back in early 2012 when he released a track in homage to the late Joe Paterno. Since then, Malik LRB has been working on new material, releasing several new tracks and videos over the last two years. His latest release — “Hello” ft. The President — can be seen below.

Tony Black

The last time we caught up with Penn State rapper Tony Black about a year ago, he had just dropped a new video and hinted at some new releases in the near future. Since then, he’s been releasing new tracks for his upcoming release with Lost Boy Entertainment. You can check out the video for his latest single, “Hands Up” below.

Crystal Seth

Undoubtedly one of Penn State’s best rappers, Crystal Seth has spent the past few years collaborating with popular mainstream artists like Bubba Sparxxx, Action Bronson, and 2 Chainz. His second mixtape, District XXIII, was released in April and can be downloaded for free here. Check out Crystal Seth’s video for “Quite Like Me”, featuring Taylor Gang’s Chevy Woods.

Keegan Tawa

In an era where EDM and pop culture are so intertwined, it sometimes takes one artist to break the mold and evolve the music beyond the generic four-on-the-floor beat that we hear every time we walk past American Eagle downtown. Penn State’s very own Keegan Tawa has never been afraid to shatter the contemporary formula of house music, introducing jazz and progressive rock influences. Check out his latest original mix, “End of the Line”.
