What Music Are You Listening To?

The weather is heating up, the car windows are rolling down and the summer music season is upon us.

If you’re getting bored with that album that is sooooo 2012, or maybe even 1992, then you’ll want to hear some recommendations from our guests today.

Anthony Fantano from WNPR’s The Needle Drop and Rick Sinkiewicz, the co-owner of Red Scroll Records join us in-studio to share what they’ve been listening to and what they think you should check out as well.

We’ll also hear from Afropop’s Banning Eyre who shares some new music coming out of Ghana.

We want you to join the conversation - what new albums are you listening to on repeat? Any artists really blowing you away?
