Springtime is usually my favorite time for live music, and while I was sad my Tame Impala concert was postponed and my annual pilgrimage to SXSW was canceled, it’s the up and coming musicians who rely on live shows who are hurting during this crazy time. Please consider supporting your favorite artists directly, through purchasing merch or music directly from their website, helping them out through Patreon or even Venmo. Fortunately for us, many artists are still releasing new music, and while I was looking forward to checking out some new acts at SXSW, I’ve included a few of those artists in DNAK 117 as well as some tracks from familiar favorites. We have new singles from Perfume Genius, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Bright Eyes, and Brandi Carlile, and we have new LPs from Waxahatchee, Purity Ring, Porches, and Margaret Glaspy, amongst others. And checkout the new electro pop album Melonday from my friend Tomo Nakayama (no relation, we think). It’ll put a smile on your face.
