I’m not gonna lie, New Music Friday helps me remember what day it is. I also like finding new sounds. Here are some of my favorite new finds + current releases. Hope you dig! I’m back on KCRW this (and next weekend) from noon to 3pm so you might hear some of these sprinkled into the sets. You can also listen directly from Spotify. Enjoy + be safe!
