New Music Experience: January 20, 2022

LISTEN to the New Music Experience

There’s new music brilliance from a wide array of genres on this week’s show as we showcase our most favorite songs of the last seven days, including experimental dance-pop from Yaeji, blistering indie-rock from Brighton, UK’s Black Honey, mellow alt-soul from 90s chart crooner Eddie Chacon (formerly of the duo Charles and Eddie, who sang the pop behemoth “Would I Lie to You?”), a strong return from indie supergroup boygenius, a bleepy Afrobeat-inspired jam from Doncaster-via-Johannesburg artist Skinny Pelembe, and more.

Plus, check out Jewly Hight in conversation with Gee Slab from Six One Tribe talking about our Nashville Song of the Week, “Sky is Not the Limit,” and Justin Barney talking with Karly from Wednesday about the Southern rock institution that inspired their latest single, “Chosen To Deserve.”

Finally, our Song of the Week this week comes from Arlo Parks and our Record of the Week is Strays from Margo Price.
