Anticipation. Excitement. Elation. Confusion. Disappointment. This week, Frank Ocean is all of these things and more.

Supremely talented Chicago MC Noname first announced herself to the world two years ago on Chance The Rapper's Acid Rap. On Telefone, she's finally stepping out on her own with one of the strongest statements on womanhood, life in the hood, and life in general that we've heard in recent memory. Marcus K, Dowling and Briana Younger join us to discuss this monumental mix-tape that was well worth the wait.

PLUS! Singer/songwriter Esmé Patterson's critically acclaimed LP We Were Wild, is as perfect a slice of pop-rock that you're going to find in 2016. We've got a new track to help get you acquainted.

Episode 161: Lucy Dacus - No Burden

TIDAL, the streaming service that is "for artists, by artists" may be up for sale...to Samsung. Who is not a DJ you haven't heard of. 

Lucy Dacus' subtly powerful debut, No Burden, is being hyped far and wide in the music press. For once the hype is real. Believe it.

No BS! Brass Band are a take-no-prisoners party machine carrying on a long tradition of Richmond, VA jazz musicians kicking ass and taking names. Prepare to shake it with their latest single.

Sometimes we have good ideas. Sometimes those ideas are a blaxploitation version of Little Shop of Horrors.
