pop

In this episode, we run the gamut from artists who are brand new on the scene to longstanding, award-winning favorites. This batch of music tends towards the jazzy, bluesy and poppy side of WNCW’s music mix, and begins with an artist who is returning to an inspiration some 40 years on, now bringing elements he never yet dared to his sound. We’ll feature a Segue Of The Week matching a new artist from Australia with a band that has evoked America’s Southwest for decades, and a lot more.

Our spectrum of music in this episode runs from latin to jazz, to pop and rock, and our segue of the week pairs a lesser known bluegrass classic with the debut from a banjo prodigy. Also, for our “DJ For A Day” segment, we return to our Purple Prose theme in a new way, pondering whether some of these hyperbolic press releases could be art after all.
