On this week's Must-Hear Music podcast, we're talking about a slew of slick new songs. Naturally, in the wake of Kendrick Lamar's new album DAMN., we talk about a few of those, honing in on "DNA." in particular. Another all-caps track we discuss is PWR BTTM's "LOL," an emotionally nuanced, gorgeous rock track featuring the singer's mom crooning operatically in the background.
Speaking of artists vocalizing with loved ones, we look at Chris Stapleton's "Broken Halos," which finds the country singer's raw vocals paired with those of his wife, Morgane. We also listen to the latest offering from Noah Cyrus, "Stay Together," which nicely showcases her voice, plus Becky Hill's "Rude Love" and Trapper Schoepp's novel reimagining of lost Bob Dylan lyrics about the Dairy State set to the Wisconsin Badgers' fight song.
