Under The Radar

  1. It was a crazy good week for new songs. So much so that we could only narrow down this week's Songs of the Week to 12 tracks, as opposed to our normal 10. Speedy Ortiz almost made the list with "Lucky 88," the first single off their newly announced new album Twerp Verse, but then it would've been 13 songs and we gave into superstition. 
  2. When I speak to Hayden Thorpe, co-frontman of Wild Beasts, he sounds exhausted. He has every right to be. We're speaking just after rehearsals for the first of three shows that will almost definitely be the band's last; they've promised that this is not an indefinite hiatus and they won't be reuniting. But he also sounds exhausted in a deeper way.
  3. Raoul Peck (I Am Not Your Negro) takes us back to the humble and complicated beginnings of Marx as a brash, young revolutionary.
  4. This week the dear beloved leader fails to score well in a presidential poll, America continues to deal with atrocity in Florida, the Russia investigation refuses to stop, and Wye Oak sing.
