Episode 277: What Now - Sylvan Esso

We all know about the disaster that was last week's Fyre Festival, but aside from providing Twitter with hours of good, old-fashioned schadenfreude, it raises a question: In 2017 have we finally reached peak festival? Marcus and Mauricio are joining Kevin in the basement to discuss.

On their 2014 self-titled debut, Sylvan Esso went a long way towards redefining what pop music SHOULD be in the modern age. Now Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn are up to it again on their sophomore release, What Now. An exuberant exploration of love, the music industry and pretty much everything else, the electronic duo is hurdling over the sophomore slump and continuing on their path to total world domination.

PLUS! Seán Barna's first full length LP, Pictures Of An Exhibitionist, is almost here but we've got a taste of his latest single for you to dig into while you wait. "Slutty folk" never sounded this good.

Episode 215: Ryley Walker - Golden Sings That Have Been Sung

Spotify may be winning the streaming wars, but with a new round of rights negotiations ahead, will they be stopped in their tracks by the labels.

Chicago's Ryley Walker makes guitar music. Heady guitar music. On his latest album, Golden Sings That Have Been Song, we take yet another trip into the cosmos searching for answers that we may never find.

Sylvan Esso is back AF. Witness their new single "Radio". Rejoice.
