The year 2023 continues to give us amazing new music, the best of which is hand-picked and highlighted here on WNXP’s weekly New Music Experience show. Included this week are new releases from Brighton, UK kaleidoscopic indie-pop outfit, The Go! Team, Michigan’s Sam Austins, Congolese artist Petite Noir with Zambia’s Sampa the Great, mysterious South Korean electro-shoegazer Parannoul, and the genre-defying Scottish trio, Young Fathers.
We also hear excerpts of recent WNXP interviews with Sunny War and The Velvet Underground’s John Cale, both talking about their new projects.
Our Song of the Week heralds a welcome return and a new album announcement from Hawaiian-New Zealand musician, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and our Record of the Week is 5 to the Eye with Stars from our Nashville Artist of the Month, R.A.P. Ferreira.
