By Â now Â weâ€™ve Â all Â heard Â about Â the Â 16-Âyear-Â old Â boy Â who Â allegedly Â stabbed Â 21 Â students Â and Â an Â adult Â in Â a Â Pennsylvania Â high Â school. The Â accused Â teen, Â Alex Â Hribal, Â went Â to Â the Â Murrysville Â school Â early Â Wednesday Â morning Â with Â two Â kitchen Â knives. Â Almost Â all Â of Â the Â vic-Â tims Â who Â were Â stabbed Â later Â said Â they Â didnâ€™t Â see Â anyone Â coming Â at Â them, Â according Â to Â CNN. Â As Â far Â as Â the Â media Â coverage Â of Â this Â stab-Â bing Â is Â concerned, Â there Â were Â the Â usual Â suspects;Íž Â changes Â in Â the Â number Â of Â students Â stabbed, Â spec-Â ulation Â quotes Â from Â teens Â who Â didnâ€™t Â see Â much Â and Â perpetuation Â of Â rumors Â about Â the Â suspect. Â That Â being Â said, Â if Â you Â want Â to Â learn Â more Â about Â the Â details Â of Â the Â story, Â Google Â it. Â I Â want Â to Â take Â some Â time Â to Â talk Â about Â how Â all Â of Â this Â media Â attention Â is Â affecting Â the Â kids Â involved, Â and Â really Â any Â student Â who Â goes Â to Â Franklin Â Re-Â gional Â Senior Â High Â School. Â And Â by Â that, Â I Â mean Â the Â mental Â health Â im-Â pacts Â they Â will Â be Â facing Â with Â the Â possible Â de-Â velopment Â of Â Post-ÂTraumatic Â Stress Â Disorder Â (PTSD). Â The Â estimated Â risk Â for Â victims Â of Â shoot-Â ings Â or Â stabbings Â developing Â PTSD Â is Â 15.4 Â per-Â cent, Â according Â to Â the Â PTSD Â Alliance Â website. Â The Â school Â is Â offering Â counseling Â services Â for Â the Â entire Â school Â community, Â but Â the Â high Â school Â is Â only Â closing Â for Â a Â few Â days. Â The Â mid-Â dle Â and Â elementary Â schools Â are Â not Â closing Â at Â all. I Â think Â a Â few Â days Â is Â not Â enough Â to Â â€˜get Â overâ€™ Â a Â fellow Â classmate, Â described Â as Â shy Â and Â quiet, Â stabbing Â people. Â This Â is Â perpetuated Â by Â the Â fact Â that Â the Â media Â will Â be Â stalking Â the Â high Â school Â for Â more Â quotes Â for Â at Â least Â a Â week. Â At Â least. Â But Â hopefully Â there Â will Â be Â something Â good Â that Â will Â come Â out Â of Â this Â attention. Think Â for Â a Â second Â about Â the Â tragic Â New-Â town Â shooting, Â the Â immense Â journalistic Â cover-Â DJH DQG KRZ LW LQĂ€XHQFHG OHJLVODWLRQ LQ &RQ QHFWLFXW SXWWLQJ OLPLWDWLRQV RQ ÂżUHDUPV DQG magazines. Â But Â in Â this Â Murrysville Â stabbing Â case, Â you Â canâ€™t Â exactly Â put Â limitations Â on Â kitch-Â en Â knives. Â This Â media Â attention Â could Â be Â a Â much Â needed Â wake-Âup Â call Â for Â increased Â security Â with-Â in Â the Â public Â school Â system, Â or Â more Â awareness Â of Â mental Â health Â within Â youth.

IDMH Conference To Focus On Communication By John Tappen News Editor | John.email@example.com
The eleventh annual Institute for Disaster Mental Health (IDMH) con- ference will meet Friday, April 25 in the Lecture Center to discuss the chal- lenges of disseminating messages dur- ing complex and rapidly changing di- sasters. IDMH at SUNY New Paltz was founded to “help prepare students, com- munity members, paraprofessionals and SURIHVVLRQDOV LQ WKH KHOSLQJ ¿HOGV WR prevent, prepare for and care for others following a disaster via evidence-based disaster mental health interventions,” according to their website. The title of this year’s conference: “Why Don’t People Listen? — The Whole Community and Communicat- ing in a Crisis,” will focus on the im- portance of communication during a disaster. Dr. Karla Vermeulen, a sociology
professor at SUNY New Paltz as well as the acting director for the IDMH at SUNY New Paltz, said the target audi- ence for the conference is mental health H[SHUWVDVZHOODV¿UVWUHVSRQGHUV Vermeulen said experiencing a di- saster is traumatic — it leaves those who have gone through it with numer- ous questions, such as: Are my things safe? When can I go home? Vermeulen said these common questions and concerns in light of a disaster underscore the importance of communication in these situations. Vermeulen made reference to recent events, like the missing airliner in Ma- laysia, the mudslide in Washington and Hurricane Sandy, that she said reinforce the conference’s importance. Eric Klineberg, a sociology pro- fessor at New York University and au- thor of the book “Heat Wave: A Social Autopsy of Disaster in Chicago,” will speak on the topic of social infrastruc-
ture and disaster that takes place in the form of “super-storms” as a result of climate change. The conference will include other presentations and workshops that will DGGUHVV ³VSHFL¿F KD]DUGV DQG SRSXOD tions, with representatives familiar with the challenges of message dissemina- tion,” according to their website. Wendy Harman, director of social strategy for the American Red Cross, will speak on the strengths as well as the limitations of social media and how helpful new technology can be in disas- terous situations. Vermeulen said strategies on how to disperse warnings prior to expected disasters and why people do not always adhere to warnings they receive will be explored during the conference. “We must understand the reasons why people don’t always listen to warn- ings — why they don’t evacuate,” Ver- meulen said.
Vermeulen said a level of “victim blaming” often occurs toward those who choose not to evacuate when con- fronted with a natural disaster. Instead of blaming those who do not evacuate, Vermeuelen said her hope is to explore some of the practical rea- sons why some do not leave — “What are the barriers to that action?” — and what people can do to better convince people to leave. Those who have gone through a trauma from experiencing a disaster will likely experience depression, grief, an inability to focus and an inability to PHOTO BY ROBIN WEINSTEIN maintain employment and certain rela- tionships, Vermeulen said. Vermeulen said she hopes to dis- pel the myth that a person will “bounce back” from an incident within a few weeks or months. She said those ex- pectations are not realistic and there is often a stigma that those effected feel when they do not recover immediately.

An Â Ohio-Ânative Â turned Â New Â Yorker, Â Chef Â Nathan Â Snow Â has Â been Â immersed Â in Â Italian Â cooking Â for Â more Â than Â a Â de-Â cade. Â And Â while Â New Â Paltz Â isnâ€™t Â Naples, Â he Â believes Â the Â Italian Â approach Â to Â food Â and Â his Â mission Â for Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â newest Â eatery Â are Â symbiotic. â€œThe Â Italian Â philosophy Â is Â the Â re-Â gional Â plate Â to Â your Â area. Â In Â that Â vein Â itâ€™s Â always Â been Â my Â philosophy Â to Â use Â the Â food Â you Â can Â get Â your Â hands Â on Â re-Â gionally,â€? Â Snow Â said. Â â€œOur Â goal Â is Â to Â get Â food Â like Â vegetables Â and Â proteins Â and Â even Â grains;Íž Â our Â goal Â is Â to Â get Â it Â from Â as Â close Â to Â the Â restaurant Â as Â we Â can.â€? Having Â opened Â in Â February Â of Â this Â past Â winter, Â The Â Huguenot Â is Â Main Â Streetâ€™s Â newest Â restaurant Â and Â project Â from Â A Â Tavola Â founders Â Snow Â and Â Bon-Â nie Â Snow. Â The Â Huguenot Â features Â farm-Â to-Âtable Â fare Â sourced Â from Â Karl Â Fam-Â ily Â Farms Â in Â Modena, Â N.Y.

said Â he Â is Â able Â to Â push Â the Â limits Â of Â his Â culinary Â creativity, Â which Â he Â has Â en-Â joyed Â since Â the Â restaurantâ€™s Â opening. â€œThe Â great Â thing Â about Â American Â food Â is Â that Â the Â sky Â really Â is Â the Â limit Â for Â what Â you Â can Â and Â canâ€™t Â do,â€?

Torn Tough With The Training Team RUGBY BROS REUNITE TO GET BIG AT NEW GYM
Wickler, 30 are the co- owners and coaches of CrossFit 299 in Highland, N.Y. During their time as the co-captains of the Men’s Rugby team at New Paltz, there was no coach, so they decided how the team trained. Through some trial and error they started learning how to do Cross- Fit, a weightlifting, gymnastics and endurance type of working out performed at a high-intensity, and af- ter a couple of years they started getting into actual CrossFit. After graduating from New Paltz, they moved to Australia to play rugby. Upon returning back to the United States, Judge worked as an oil broker and Van Wickler went back to school and received his mas- ter’s degree in physical education from Canisius Col- lege. Although they parted ways, both were still active participants in the CrossFit community. Van Wickler was a coach at CrossFit Buffalo and Judge was train- ing at CrossFit Westchester. Van Wickler said he and Judge made good part- ners as co-captains of the rugby team and were both into CrossFit, so they decided on the idea to open their own place. “We both took pretty radical turnarounds,” Van Wickler said. “Joe was brokering oil, I was going to start teaching full-time somewhere else. We both re- located and changed careers to do this.” Judge said he loves CrossFit because of how it’s constantly changing and how it translates to his other hobbies, rugby and snowboarding.

SUNY New Paltz graduates Joe Judge (2008) and Keith Van Wickler (2007) had no idea that the train- ing regimen they decided to use at New Paltz while on the rugby team would ultimately help determine their careers, as well as take them around the world and back. Now, Judge, 28, and Van
Van Wickler said he enjoys CrossFit because of the community aspect it fosters. “It really builds a nice community and cama- raderie that is similar to what you get playing team sports,” Van Wickler said. “You come in and start working out with the same people everyday. You start to get to know each other, you start looking forward to being here.” Judge said they initially wanted to open a gym in New Paltz because of their familiarity to the area, but New Paltz

They received the keys to the building on July 3, 2013 and immediately began knocking down walls, painting the insides and renovating the lighting.

said the construc- tion of their gym was not the hard part prior to opening. “The tough part was generating interest, creat- ing a buzz and getting people to be here, so when we opened the doors we could start attempting to make money and attempting to pay our bills, dent the over- head and start that whole process,” Judge said. To create that “buzz,” Van Wickler said they used Facebook to advertise. Also, the people they knew in Facebook the area and in the CrossFit community allowed word WRVSUHDGTXLFNO\DERXWWKHLUJ\P Judge said they offer basic CrossFit classes, Olympic weight lifting classes, mobility classes, open gym hours and specialty courses. There are also three additional coaches, Greg Saso, Malinda Treglina and Tim Taylor, who teach one to two classes per week, all of whom have had prior CrossFit experience before joining CrossFit 299, Van Wickler said. “A big part of what we do is not only coaching our members, but also coaching our coaches to improve their skill-set, so they can provide a better product for our members when we aren’t here,” Judge said. Going forward, Judge said they want CrossFit 299 to keep growing at its current rate, with 50 mem- bers after seven months and to continue providing FXVWRPHUVZLWKDTXDOLW\H[SHULHQFH In addition to working at CrossFit 299, Judge is currently captain of the USA Rugby Div. 1 Club in White Plains, N.Y. and Van Wickler is a substitute teacher in the Highland and New Paltz Central school districts.

Simulating A Social Class By Maddie Anthony Copy Editor | N02436976@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
According to the United States Census Bureau, there were 46.5 mil- lion Americans living in poverty in 2012, and the number has only in- creased since. On the evening of Wednesday, April 2, New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG), New York State’s largest student-di- rected research and advocacy orga- nization, hosted “Poverty: It’s Not a Game” to call attention the issue. Samantha Spoto, a fourth-year creative writing and sociology double major, and a member of NYPIRG’s hunger and homeless committee, helped to coordinate the event and said the goal of the program was to educate the public on the increasing poverty issue in the United States. “Each year, more than three mil- lion people experience homelessness, and each night, over 38,000 homeless individuals sleep in the New York City shelter system. As long as pov- erty exists, groups like NYPIRG must work to facilitate discussion on the is- sue,” Spoto said. “Educating the gen- HUDOSXEOLFRQSRYHUW\LVWKH¿UVWVWHS LQWKH¿JKWWRUHGXFHWKHVWHDG\LQÀX[ of individuals thrust into homeless- ness.” The interactive event had the at- tendees metaphorically incorporated into the system. Attendees received criteria distinguishing them by class, housing, education, diet, access to healthcare and so on. The breakdown of how many people received what social class status — two upper-class, several middle class, lower-middle and below the poverty line and three people homelessness — was meant to coincide roughly with the actual per- centages of population based on class. Spoto gave the group differ- ent prompts and the attendees, who were lined up along the room, took steps either forwards or backwards
accordingly. For example, Spoto instructed the audience to “take two steps forward if you received a college degree, take one step backwards if you received a college degree but need to pay back student loans, take two steps back if you received a high school degree.” The main goal of this activity was to show how certain class-based fac- tors channel certain people into pov- erty while other factors help to enable people to lead successful lives. In the end, the people who had been given “upper-class” status stood at the front of the room, while those who had been given the simulated “homeless” status remained at the back. This “segregated” the room based on perceived class. A discussion period followed the event and students talked about the aspects of the activity they learned from and how it made them feel when they had to either take a step for- wards, or back. “As some students expressed, it gave them a reality check, that maybe we should pay more attention to. We have such a stigma of homeless peo- ple and fail to realize that it could be us in that position. It’s so much easier to fall back in social classes, then it is to get up,” third-year Yvette Ramirez, who also helped to coordinate the event, said. “I felt the event accomplished its goal of educating the public on the factors that contribute to poverty;; it dispelled common stereotypes of homelessness,” Spoto said. NYPIRG strives to educate the general public on hunger and home- lessness as well as offers direct as- sistance to those in need. If students are passionate and seeking involve- ment in local volunteer projects that aid those in need, NYPIRG’s hunger and homeless committee meets every Wednesday at 2 p.m. in SUB 426. NYPIRG members discuss the struggles poverty presents.

The Â Warriors Â Dance Â Team Â will Â be Â taking Â their Â name Â literally Â as Â they Â battle Â sexism Â and Â oppression Â through Â movement, Â music, Â poetry Â and Â comedy Â during Â their Â annual Â performance Â showcase Â â€œI Â Am Â A Â Woman.â€? Â In Â addition Â to Â original Â Warriors Â dance Â numbers, Â the Â night Â will Â feature Â performances Â by Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â all-Âfemale Â a Â capella Â group Â The Â Sexy Â Pitches, Â dance Â team Â FOCUS, Â musical Â theater Â group Â Curtain Â Call, Â Urban Â Lyrics Â and Â TBA Â Improv. Â The Â Warriors Â Dance Â Team Â Co-ÂPresident Â and Â fourth-Âyear Â graphic Â design Â major Â Mary-ÂAnne Â Ramirez Â said Â during Â the Â showâ€™s Â early Â planning Â stages, Â the Â eight-Âmember Â team Â decided Â they Â wanted Â to Â focus Â on Â the Â positive Â stories Â told Â about Â women, Â as Â well Â as Â the Â struggles Â women Â endure. â€œWe Â collaborated Â on Â dance, Â poetry, Â music, Â acting Â and Â stories Â of Â women Â in Â history,â€?

During Â past Â productions, Â guest Â groups Â were Â assigned Â themes Â to Â convey Â through Â their Â performances. Â This Â year, Â however, Â The Â
Warriors Â allowed Â them Â more Â leniency, Â letting Â them Â choose Â their Â own Â messages. Â The Â Warriors Â also Â usually Â connect Â parts Â of Â their Â performance Â to Â a Â recent Â news Â story. This Â year, Â Urban Â Lyrics Â plan Â to Â perform Â a Â piece Â about Â Ma-Â lala Â Yousafzai, Â the Â Pakistani Â 15-Âyear-Âold Â who, Â in Â 2012, Â was Â shot Â in Â the Â head Â by Â a Â Taliban Â gunman Â for Â speaking Â out Â about Â girlsâ€™ Â right Â to Â be Â educated. Â Post-Ârecovery, Â Malala Â is Â now Â an Â educa-Â WLRQDFWLYLVWZHOONQRZQLQWHUQDWLRQDOO\E\KHUÂżUVWQDPHDORQH and Â has Â delivered Â speeches Â about Â equality Â from Â United Â Nations Â headquarters, Â according Â to Â BBC. Â In Â the Â past, Â The Â Warriorsâ€™ Â performances Â during Â their Â annual Â â€œI Â Am Â A Â Womanâ€? Â show Â were Â deeply Â emotional Â and Â poignant Â in Â contrast Â to Â this Â yearâ€™s Â numbers, Â fourth-Âyear Â English Â major Â and Â Warriorsâ€™ Â Co-ÂPresident Â Cristina Â Battista Â said. â€œThis Â year Â is Â a Â more Â fun, Â lighthearted Â show,â€? Â Ramirez Â said. Â â€œThere Â are Â still Â emotional Â pieces, Â but Â not Â as Â intense. Â You Â want Â everyone Â to Â leave Â there Â feeling Â positive.â€? Ramirez Â said Â similar Â to Â last Â yearâ€™s Â show, Â this Â yearâ€™s Â will Â fea-Â ture Â dramatic Â entrances Â of Â modern-Âday Â women, Â with Â music Â from Â artists Â like Â Ke$ha Â and Â Lady Â Gaga, Â to Â help Â set Â the Â showâ€™s Â tone. Â Between Â The Â Warriorsâ€™ Â original Â choreography Â and Â perfor-Â mances Â from Â guest Â groups, Â there Â is Â more Â diversity Â overall Â at Â this Â yearâ€™s Â â€œI Â Am Â A Â Womanâ€?

Â One Â unifying Â theme Â that Â spans Â across Â The Â Warriorsâ€™ Â num-Â bers Â is Â sexual Â liberation, Â illustrated Â with Â a Â burlesque-Âstyle Â twist, Â Gold Â said. Â The Â Warriors Â said Â they Â exemplify Â this Â theme Â with Â a Â number Â WKDWLQYROYHVDOOHLJKWPHPEHUVFODGLQÂżVKQHWVVHTXLQVDQGFRU-Â sets, Â slinking Â and Â shimmying Â on Â four Â chairs. The Â number Â highlights Â two Â different Â sides Â or Â levels Â of Â sexu-Â ality, Â starting Â with Â a Â more Â modest, Â broadway-Âjazz Â style, Â and Â eventually Â evolving Â into Â modern-Âday Â hip-Âhop Â movements. Â Gold Â said Â the Â number, Â which Â begins Â with Â the Â retro-Âjazz Â WLQJHG VRQJ Âł5LJKW 1RZÂ´ E\ 7KH 3XVV\FDW 'ROOV DQG ÂżQLVKHV with Â the Â syncopated Â beats Â of Â BeyoncĂŠâ€™s Â hit Â â€œPartition,â€?

McManus Makes Mad Men Moves
PROFESSOR PUTS SOCIAL PROBLEMS ON PRINTMAKING DISPLAY Copy Editor | Zmejia09@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
At times, artwork can speak messages that mere words cannot convey. Adjunct Professor Dylan McManus uses his artistic practice to cri- tique social issues prevalent in today’s society. McManus’ work is currently a part of an exhibition at The Printmaking Center of New Jersey (PCNJ) called “Mad Men,” in which he and artist Bob Craig create prints that share their respective political commentaries as tools for social change. McManus said the PCNJ contacted him about participating in a two-person exhibition and were interested in featuring his work as a representation of a “new school” way of mak- ing prints. He said the current Visiting Professor in the SUNY Printmaking Program and the artistic di- rector of the PCNJ, Sheila Goloborotko, thought his work would be perfect for the concept of the two-person exhibition the center had slated;; the
exhibition would feature two male artists work- ing with political subject matter who also hap- pen to have an obsessive or “mad” process they utilize for creating their works. “Each series looks critically at various social issues prevalent in our society today. Is- sues spanning everything from diamond wars in Africa to unemployment within our local com- munity are considered within the series featured in this exhibition,” McManus said. “The thing that unites all of the works is not only the social commentary but the fact that my use of materi- als and process directly inform the content con- tained within each individual piece.” McManus’ work featured in this exhibition contains selections from three separate bodies of work spanning the last seven years of his ar- tistic practice. With 28 pieces in the exhibition, mostly produced in 2014, “Mad Men” is the largest collection of his art shown in the United States since 2007. In “Portraits of Recession,” one of the se- ries within the exhibition, McManus focuses
Spotlight On Shawangunk Snaps Nestled on the strip of shops on Water Street Market is G. Steve Jordan Gallery., owned by photographer Steve Jordan. The gallery has been thriving for upwards of 10 years and Jordan has photographed commercial work for more than 20 years, and has been featured on the SUNY New Paltz campus. All photos displayed in the gallery have been taken within a few miles of New Paltz. Jordan said he wants this gallery to represent the area it’s in.
on the collapse of the global economy in 2008 and how it resulted in severe unemployment for young, recently-graduated Americans. He laser- engraved the portraits of both unemployed and under-employed members of the community on the surface of dollar bills that banks refused, turning them into pieces of artwork. In another series, McManus appropriated SRUWUDLWVRIFKLOGVROGLHUVZKR¿JKWLQUHVRXUFH wars in Africa and printed their portraits using QDWXUDOGLDPRQGJURXQGLQWRD¿QHJUDQXOH “Material is really important to me, the ma- terial speaks as much to my subject as does the image,” McManus said. “In the case of the gun- powder portraits, the series focuses on returning veterans from the War on Terror, I draw portraits of them in gunpowder and I light the powder on ¿UHWRFUHDWHWKH¿QDOSLHFH7KHUHVLGXHRIWKH burn and the ashes is what draws the portraits.” Linda Helm Krapf, the executive director at the PCNJ, said there is tension and breadth within the exhibition, between McManus using the newest, most cutting-edge printmaking tech-
nology and Craig using traditional technology. “The materials [McManus] used make his work so compelling,” Helm Krapf said. “With the prints he made with diamond dust and gun- powder, he’s marrying the materials with the is- sue of diamonds and child soldiers.” McManus, who received an MFA from SUNY New Paltz, has taught printmaking and foundations at SUNY New Paltz on and off as an adjunct professor since 2008. He said the opportunity to be involved in the show came at the end of a very transitional period in his life when he found himself not ex- hibiting as frequently as he had in the past. “While my work is constantly being fea- tured in various shows around the world, I haven’t had an opportunity for a solo space where I can exhibit multiple works since 2008 so needless to say, I am very happy that I was considered for this exhibition,” McManus said. “Mad Men” will be featured at the PCNJ from Saturday, March 15 through Saturday, April 19.

Weather Underground, Earl Boykins and Aircraft played their souls out at Oasis on Thursday, April 1. Thanks to Christoper Daly, another amazing concert was produced for New Paltz. Salvation Records, a com- pany run by Daly, has been tearing up the music scene all over town. The night began with a solo act, Weather Underground. Slightly underwhelming, he had a hard time managing his sound quality. With the mic at a shatteringly high level and the guitar screeching, it was hard to appreciate the mu- sic. However, there were moments during his set when he played a brilliant guitar lick and moments of great music. I highly respect his bravery and soulful attitude. As the night continued, I experienced an extremely un- expected turn. With his electric rock and roll stage presence and ec- centric hair style, Justin John Smith, lead guitarist and singer, suddenly took control of the crowd and set us all on a journey with his band, Aircraft, who hail from Buf- falo, N.Y. Described on the band’s Facebook page as “Psy- chedelic Surf Pop,” they combined an exceptional broad
range of music into one. With inspirations varying from Beethoven to Black Sabbath, every song was an unpredict- able joy. Each member of Aircraft added a soulful component to their music while combining to form a beautifully cohesive and synchronized sound. They clearly were experienced musicians who had been playing together for some time. To me, they stole the show. After this shocking and unexpected gem of a concert, the next band, Earl Boykins, named after the 5-foot-5-inch basketball player, performed. The band members, hailing from SUNY Purchase, had DJRZLWKWKHÀRZDWWLWXGH7KHLUSXQNPHQWDOLW\DQGKDUG hitting vibes led to an intensely crowd-pleasing concert. They performed all original songs and made a huge impact on the crowd. I would not go out of my way to listen to this type of music, but if you are a head basher and want to get some anger out, I highly recommend checking out Earl Boykins’ music. All in all, these rockers put up a great show and de- serve to have their names and music spread. So go check them out. Go see a concert. You never know what will hap- pen.
Noah London, member of Earl Boykins.

Three Â years Â and Â a Â tour Â later, Â soul-Âcapturing Â Coldplay Â will Â release Â their Â sixth Â album Â Ghost Â Stories. Â Though Â the Â elec-Â tronic, Â Bon Â Iver-Âsounding Â single Â â€œMidnightâ€? Â and Â the Â ever-Âso-Âromantic Â single Â â€œMagicâ€? Â veer Â from Â their Â past Â sound, Â Coldplay Â have Â al-Â ways Â added Â a Â twist Â to Â their Â sweet Â tunes. Â Expected Â release Â date: Â May Â 19 Back Â with Â their Â gritty Â rock Â are Â The Â Black Â Keys Â with Â Turn Â Blue.

Â It Â has Â a Â bit Â of Â a Â pop Â feel Â to Â it, Â but Â very Â well Â could Â have Â been Â any Â song Â off Â an Â older Â album. Â Expected Â release Â date: Â May Â 13 Swedish Â band Â Little Â Dragon Â is Â back Â with Â their Â third Â al-Â bum Â N Nabuma Â abuma Â Rub-Â berband berband. Â Their Â promising Â single Â â€œKlapp Â Klappâ€? Â is Â laden Â with Â jazzy, Â cosmic Â synthpop Â vibes. Â Yukimi Â Na-Â gano Â is Â , Â as Â usual, Â on Â point Â with Â her Â vocals.

The Hold Steady Teeth Dreams
The Â Hold Â Steadyâ€™s Â 10th Â anniversary Â show Â in Â February Â at Â the Â Abbey Â Bar Â in Â Harrisburg, Â Pa. Â ended Â abruptly Â when Â someone Â jumped Â onstage Â and Â tried Â to Â steal Â the Â microphone Â from Â lead Â singer Â Craig Â Finn. Â It Â wasnâ€™t Â the Â last Â song Â on Â the Â setlist, Â but Â the Â band, Â in Â disarray, Â walked Â offstage. Â It Â was Â a Â crude, Â kind Â of Â sad Â ending Â to Â an Â uplifting Â night. Â But Â it Â was Â also Â a Â glimpse Â into Â an Â authentic Â rock Â nâ€™ Â roll Â moment. Â There Â was Â an Â element Â of Â danger: Â anything Â could Â happen. Â The Â show Â could Â end Â at Â any Â moment. Â And Â it Â did. Â Like Â audacious Â guitarist Â Tad Â Kubler, Â who Â brings Â substance Â DEXVH7KLQ/L]]\JXLWDUVRORVDQGWKHZHOOIRUWLÂżHGIHDVLELOLW\RI DÂżJKWDIWHUWKHVKRZ)LQQKDVPDGHDFDOFXODWHGGHFLVLRQPD\EH LWÂśVEHWWHUWREHWKHEDQGWKDWGRHVQÂśWÂżQLVKWKHLUVHWHYHU\QLJKW The Â bandâ€™s Â latest Â record, Â Teeth Â Dreams, Â sees Â a Â return Â to Â the Â powerful, Â risky Â guitar-Âdriven Â rock Â they Â are Â so Â well Â known Â for. Â It Â was Â a Â sound Â missing Â from Â their Â last Â effort, Â 2010â€™s Â Heaven Â is Â Whenever. Â 7KH ÂżUVW IRXU +ROG 6WHDG\ UHFRUGV FDSWLYDWH EHFDXVH WKH\ sound Â like Â novels Â on Â tape. Â There Â are Â crowded Â descriptions Â with Â vivid Â and Â dramatic Â characters. Â These Â characters Â seep Â through Â to Â every Â record Â and Â create Â a Â lengthy Â testimony Â to Â sin Â and Â salvation, Â to Â life Â that Â is Â bigger Â than Â a Â song, Â album Â or Â the Â band. Â These Â characters Â are Â familiar Â friends Â â€” Â their Â dispositions, Â history Â and Â vices Â Hold Â Steady Â die-Âhards Â are Â well Â acquainted Â with. But Â 2010â€™s Â Heaven Â is Â Whenever Â began Â to Â stray Â from Â the Â unique Â sound Â they Â had Â carved Â for Â themselves Â 11 Â years Â ago Â in Â the Â 1HZ<RUN&LW\LQGLHURFNVFHQH7KHVHWUDFNVIHOWOLNHĂ€LPV\DW tempts Â at Â pop Â songs, Â with Â only Â half Â references Â to Â the Â stories Â fans Â wanted Â to Â hear. Â Gone Â was Â Finnâ€™s Â patented Â talk-Âsing Â aesthetic Â of Â dense Â storytelling. Â 7KH ÂżUVW FXW RII Teeth Â Dreams, Â â€œI Â Hope Â This Â Whole Â Thing Â Didnâ€™t Â Frighten Â You,â€? Â feels Â like Â a Â return Â to Â their Â per-Â manently Â precarious Â edge. Â Even Â the Â lyrics Â suggest Â a Â sort Â of Â comeback. Â Â Â Finn Â describes Â bringing Â a Â girl Â back Â to Â his Â hometown Â and Â introducing Â her Â to Â old Â friends Â â€” Â punks, Â Twin Â Cities Â tough Â guys Â and Â seedy Â types Â that Â permeate Â Hold Â Steady Â songs Â of Â the Â past. Â â€œThese Â guys Â I Â know, Â we Â go Â back Â pretty Â deepâ€Śmost Â of Â them Â are Â dead Â and Â some Â of Â them Â donâ€™t Â even Â live Â here Â anymore.â€? Finn Â has Â refocused Â his Â thoughts Â back Â to Â the Â upper Â Midwest, Â which Â has Â always Â been Â crucial Â to Â the Â bandâ€™s Â charm. Â Songs Â written Â for Â mass Â appeal Â are Â vague Â and Â trite. Â Iâ€™d Â rather Â listen Â to Â Finn Â singing Â about Â his Â hometown Â and Â

crossing Â â€œthat Â grain Â belt Â bridge Â into Â bright Â new Â Minneapolis.â€? Â The Â appeal Â of Â The Â Hold Â Steady Â is Â their Â unapologetic Â faithful-Â ness Â to Â being Â real, Â made Â obvious Â by Â the Â way Â Finn Â writes Â songs Â about Â the Â people Â he Â knows, Â from Â the Â places Â he Â comes Â from. The Â next Â track Â â€œSpinners,â€? Â is Â catchy Â but Â haunting. Â It Â intro-Â duces Â a Â theme Â of Â devastation, Â sadness Â and Â ultimately Â persever-Â ance Â that Â carries Â throughout Â the Â album: Â â€œheartbreak Â hurts, Â but Â you Â can Â dance Â it Â off.â€? Â Finn Â is Â confronting Â harsh Â truths Â of Â adulthood Â that Â he Â thought Â might Â never Â come, Â â€œnights Â go Â on Â forever Â now, Â but Â the Â morning Â comes Â so Â quick,â€? Â the Â sobering Â truth Â that Â you Â canâ€™t Â be Â 17 Â forever, Â massive Â nights Â end Â and Â little Â hoodrat Â friends Â eventu-Â ally Â grow Â up. â€œThe Â Only Â Thingâ€? Â looks Â back Â at Â the Â reckless Â years, Â â€œthis Â town Â was Â so Â much Â fun Â when Â there Â werenâ€™t Â so Â much Â police. Â We Â didnâ€™t Â have Â to Â watch Â our Â speed.â€? Â The Â song Â offers Â closure Â to Â 2008â€™s Â â€œSequestered Â in Â Memphisâ€? Â through Â a Â message Â of Â healing Â and Â rec-Â onciliation: Â â€œIâ€™ve Â been Â trying Â to Â get Â in Â touch Â with Â her, Â last Â night Â her Â teeth Â were Â in Â my Â dreams.â€? Â Having Â dreams Â about Â teeth Â falling Â out Â speaks Â to Â anxiety Â and Â stress Â over Â personal Â appearance. Â In Â â€œOn Â With Â The Â Business,â€? Â Finn Â reveals Â possible Â reasons Â for Â those Â dreams, Â â€œChemistry, Â currency, Â plastic Â and Â magic. Â Everybody, Â rise, Â weâ€™re Â an Â American Â business,â€? Â Finn Â whales Â over Â intricate Â guitar Â parts. Â The Â song Â is Â both Â loud Â and Â somber. Â â€œGreat Â expectations. Â LA Â Fitness. Â So Â many Â choices, Â deci-Â sions, Â decisions.â€? Â At Â its Â core, Â the Â song Â is Â a Â critique Â of Â capitalism Â and Â the Â ways Â in Â which Â Finnâ€™s Â uniquely Â American Â characters Â are Â ill Â with Â a Â uniquely Â American Â sadness Â â€” Â one Â they Â only Â know Â how Â to Â temporarily Â cure Â with Â more Â booze Â and Â more Â stuff. Â â€œBlood Â on Â the Â carpet, Â blood Â on Â the Â mattress, Â waking Â up Â with Â that Â American Â sadness.â€? Midway Â through Â the Â album, Â despair Â has Â sunken Â in Â and Â the Â rest Â is Â left Â for Â advice, Â self-Âanalysis Â and Â how Â to Â grieve. Â Â With Â Teeth Â Dreams, Â the Â band Â grapples Â with Â problems Â that Â mirror Â those Â in Â their Â personal Â life: Â Finnâ€™s Â divorce Â and Â Kublerâ€™s Â drug Â use Â and Â pancreatitis. Â Partying Â has Â caught Â up Â to Â both Â the Â band Â and Â the Â characters Â theyâ€™ve Â created. Â This Â album Â is Â a Â logical Â progression Â for Â the Â band. Â ,WÂśVGLIÂżFXOWWRPDNHHYHU\VRQJDSRVLWLYHMDPLQWKHIDFHRIGL saster, Â tragedy Â and Â personal Â shortcomings. Â The Â last Â song Â â€œOaksâ€? Â is Â the Â longest Â in Â the Â bandâ€™s Â catalogue. Â Itâ€™s Â almost Â a Â synopsis Â of Â the Â entire Â album. Â It Â begins Â bitterly Â poi-Â gnant. Â Thereâ€™s Â eloquent Â guitar Â playing Â from Â Kubler Â and Â Steve Â Al-Â dridge Â who Â trade Â long, Â down Â tempo Â solos Â that Â simmer Â underneath Â each Â other. Â Toward Â the Â middle, Â Finn Â sings Â with Â some Â assurance Â â€œAnd Â we Â hopeâ€Śand Â we Â dreamâ€Ś.and Â we Â hope.â€? Â The Â end Â trails Â off Â into Â a Â fading, Â distorted Â guitar Â reminiscent Â of Â Dinosaur Â Jr. Â Even Â on Â an Â album Â where Â all Â signs Â point Â to Â an Â apocalyptic Â HQGZHJHWVRPHDIÂżUPDWLRQWKDWLQGHHGWKLQJVZLOODOOEHRND\ â€” Â that Â not Â all Â our Â dreams Â have Â to Â be Â teeth Â dreams. The Â Hold Â Steady Â have Â always Â found Â a Â way Â to Â elevate Â the Â lives Â of Â those Â that Â most Â people Â deem Â unimportant. Â They Â dignify Â WKHORZHVWPRVWRUGLQDU\FODVVRISHRSOHWKDWPRVWRIXVÂżQGRXU selves Â in. Â Teeth Â Dreams Â shows Â there Â is Â still Â so Â much Â joy Â in Â what Â they Â do.

14 The New Paltz Oracle ANALYSIS: ANDREW LIEF Managing Editor
While the 2013-14 Div. I college basketball season just ended on Monday night, it’s never too early to start looking at what to expect for next season. With that being said, here are my top-10 teams for the 2014-15 season: No. 1 Arizona Wildcats The only player that is expected to leave for the NBA on their roster is forward Aaron Gor- don. All-American guard Nick Johnson should UHWXUQ IRU KLV ¿QDO \HDU EHFDXVH KH¶V DQ XQGHU sized two-guard and doesn’t have the skillset to play the point in the pros. Regardless, with guards Gabe York and T.J. McConnell, forward Brandon Ashley returning from injury and cen- ter Kaleb Tarczewski, to go along with incoming forward Stanley Johnson, the Wildcats should be the favorites heading into next year. No. 2 Duke Blue Devils I don’t think Jabari Parker will return, but if he does the Blue Devils will surpass the Wildcats for the No. 1 spot.
A Look At Next Season Even without Parker, Duke will be one of the best teams in the country because of the No. 1 recruiting class that they are bringing in, made up of center Jahil Okafor, point guard Tyus Jones, forward Justise Winslow and guard Grayson Al- len. These players along with their returners will make the Blue Devils the class of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), if not the nation. No. 3 Wisconsin Badgers With only guard Ben Brust not returning, the Badgers will return the majority of their Fi- nal Four team from last season. Forward Frank Kaminsky showed everyone who didn’t already know that he’s a star. With Kaminsky and for- ward Sam Dekker’s return, the Badgers will have two NBA players who will lead them to an easy Big 10 title. No. 4 Kansas Jayhawks Losing guard Andrew Wiggins and center Joel Embiid will be big losses for the Jayhawks, but at this point it’s nearly impossible to doubt that Head Coach Bill Self won’t have a winning team. With guard Wayne Selden Jr. and forward
Perry Ellis returning, to go with incoming for- ward Cliff Alexander, who will be an absolute beast, the Jayhawks should have an easy path to a Big 12 title. No. 5 North Carolina Tar Heels By only losing guard Leslie McDonald and forward James Michael McAdoo, the Tar Heels will be one of the top teams in the country. Point guard Marcus Paige will be even better in his third year in Chapel Hill. The three top-100 re- cruits coming in will give the Tar Heels the depth they need to make a deep run in March. No. 6 Kentucky Wildcats With most of their 2013-14 roster expected to turn pro, the Wildcats will still be in a posi- tion to succeed with forward Alex Polythress and centers Dakari Johnson and center Marcus Lee returning as well as the No. 2 ranked recruiting class coming in. No. 7 Wichita State Shockers After their battle with Kentucky, the Shock- ers showed they were legit and should never have been doubted all season. The loss of forward
Cleanthony Early will hurt them next season, but with guards Fred VanVleet and Ron Baker returning they will win the Missouri Valley Con- ference with ease and be near the top of the rank- ings all season. No. 8 Virginia Cavaliers After winning the ACC regular season and tournament in 2013-14, the Cavaliers will look to continue their success in 2014-15. Losing the heart and soul of their team, guard Joe Harris will hurt, but they are so well-coached and disciplined that they will be able to have another great sea- son. No. 9 San Diego State Aztecs Losing Mountain West Player of the Year Xavier Thames will hurt, but bringing in three top-100 recruits will help them stay in the top-10 all season. No. 10 Villanova Wildcats With all of their rotation players returning, except guard James Bell, and two top-100 re- cruits coming in, the Wildcats are poised to have a great 2014-15 campaign.
