New Music Experience: February 17, 2023

LISTEN to the New Music Experience

This week on the New Music Experience we play nothing but the most vital new sounds, namely Third Man Records’ new signing, the London alternative rock band Island of Love; future electronic R&B duo LANNDS; Kae Tempest‘s new piano-led drum ‘n’ bass scorcher; a brand new song from Ben Folds; uptempo dance sounds from LP Giobbi; a psyche-indie-pop bop from Cuco, and many more.

Check out Thee Sacred Souls talking to Marquis Munson about the sonic elements they were looking to bring to their debut record, Weyes Blood discussing the nature of her voice as we preview her upcoming Brooklyn Bowl live show, and Nabil Ayers, President of Beggars Group and son of jazz-soul legend Roy Ayers, chats with Justin Barney about his recently released memoir “My Life In the Sunshine.”

Our Song of the Week is double shot of Nashville courtesy of the 615’s very own Bully and Soccer Mommy and we highlight our Record of the Week, Anarchist Gospel by local artist Sunny War.
