It’s #NewMusicFriday (Thanks Tay for the kick in the butt) and it’s been a tough day (RIP Bill Withers) and a tough month (RIP Sanity), but the music continues to find it’s way into people’s ears and hearts. I’m curious to hear what music will feel and sound like 4 months from now. Thundercat and Nick Hakim seemed to have tapped into the mood prior to all this. Listen to the full playlist here. Be safe!


Hey friends + fam.

New Music Friday continues during such uncertain times but I truly hope all this music helps with a little escape. I just purged through old records to make way for new sounds. Listen directly via Spotify here. Canada comes in strong with the new PartyNextDoor and Jessie Reyez who has one of the freshest voices in music today. Also on the radar is new KNXWLEDGE w/ Anderson .Paak,  And don’t sleep on Cleo Sol. Her whole production on this new album is timeless.


New week of favorites and gems on this week’s KCRW get down. Got my hands on the new Goldlink, Amber Mark, Sampa The Great, Raveena, Cleo Sol, Jai Paul, Yeasayer + more. I didn’t realize how much N.E.R.D influenced this week’s show until I looked back at the playlist. Kelis, Tyler, Kenna and The Internet all point to Chad + Pharrell.  Hope you enjoy.
