Among the week's most Popular
tracks is the debut single from Oslo's Othalie Husøy, aka Otha. "A pulsing, hands-in-the-air big-room anthem with a bedroom-pop heart," says Gorilla vs. Bear
. She says it's about "being the boss of your own life."
Taylor Bennett (Chance's kid brother) shares the uplifting title track to his upcoming project. The Fader
paraphrases his tireless flow: "everything from finding himself, his bisexuality, growing up in Chicago, and being comfortable in your own skin."
Out today on Inflated Records, the sophomore album from New Orleans duo Video Age has an '80s synth-pop flair: they cite McCartney II
and Donald Fagen’s The Nightfly
as influences. "All rubbery grooves with a dusty sheen," says Stereogum.
With hymn-like sincerity, the contemplative songs on Louisville-based, Saddle Creek-signed songwriter Sara Beth Tomberlin's debut LP reflect clarity found after struggling to define her identity and purpose as the daughter of a Baptist pastor.
British producer Pariah shares his first bit of new music in six years, and news of a full-length with Fabric Records offshoot Houndstooth. "A highly evocative and richly textured seven-minute ambient gem," says Routinebiteshard
, the new LP from Austin indie-rock band Sun June.
Rising Oslo trio SASSY 009 take NTS through a sequence of off-kilter pop, noise, and beyond, from Yves Tumor to Dorothy Ashby.
Tedium on how a single novelty song—“Surfin’ Bird”— has captured the public imagination's for 50 years:
"B-b-b bird, bird, bird, b-bird's the word."
Thanks for listening!
