New Like Whatever

Sep 28, 2021 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM



Every Friday, a heaping pile of new music is unleashed in the world, and it's nearly impossible to navigate it all. New Like Whatever will attempt to do this anyway.

Michael is playing the comparison game. He'll play a brand new song followed by whatever it reminds him of. What other artists used this kind of bass line? Who else rips off Sonic Youth? What feelings from the past are brought to mind when you hear this new track? You get the picture!

NLW will attempt to explore new music's relevance and importance in the 21st century; and how its forebears are still alive in our hearts despite the passage of time.

NLW 9.28.21

Folk, then rock, a touch of electronic, and some amazing metal to round us out! Also stick around for the new album from local band Muun Bato.
