About the show

Playing tracks by

alt-J, Richard Reed Parry with Caroline Shaw & Little Scream [feat. Garth Hudson], PJ Harvey, Emily Wells, Drake and more.

Some of this is mainstream—Drake and Beyonce are top of the charts, whatever that means now—but quality-wise it’s nice that there isn’t a big discontinuity between them and some new or less-well-known artists like Jack Garratt, Mop Mop, Emily Wells, and Christine and the Queens. A lot of these artists, well known or not, are pushing the boundaries of the genres that might confine them. Chance the Rapper’s record verges into pretty straight up gospel sometimes. Anohni (formerly Antony) delivers an issue-saturated dance album and Radiohead has some gorgeous piano ballads on their new record.

It may be tough time for musicians financially, but it doesn’t seem to have dampened their adventurous spirits. In tough times one might expect artists to play it safe—hew to the pop formulas and get by as best they can. But everyone here is taking chances; it’s heartening.
