Voting rights are not under attack

Sam Stroud Opinion Editor Andrea Hammack Trojan Living Editor The Lumineers are back and looking at the brighter side of things as they release their fourth, and more laid back, studio record.  “BRIGHTSIDE” features nine tracks that, like most of their discography, retells a ripe history of the bands own personal woes, recounts stories from less than strangers or simply paints a captivating mental picture. Beginning the album, the title track pushes itself out of the gate with a chugging drum beat from drummer/pianist Jeremiah Fraites.  Imagery is heavily involved…

Lucy Pu farewell

Lucy Pu Copy Desk Chief While I have been involved in a lot of student organizations in my time here at Troy University, I have stayed at the Trop the longest.
