Greensky Bluegrass Came to Town

The band started in 2000 in Kalamazoo, MI. Greensky Bluegrass evolved from 3 to 5 members, and the sound they made has evolved over time as well. We learn a little about that, and about the tongue-in-cheek new album title, "All For Money." You will enjoy the performances of the new songs and an older one, too. These guys strip back to the original configuration, and yet they still rock!!

Each year since WEXT began, we’ve been able to continue to discover new music. Our year end countdowns are celebrating the yearlong journey of discovery. Like you, we may find fault with the positions the songs are placed in.  The lists are generated based on airplay and listener feedback.

We would love to know what you think. You can reach out by phone or email.

In the five years since her last music release, Sharon Van Etten has had her hands full: She became a mom, she took her first acting role in the Netflix series The OA, she wrote her first movie score, and she went back to school for psychology.

The title of her new album, Remind Me Tomorrow, is a nod to how busy she's been.

"There's a lot more of life pulling me in different directions," Van Etten says.

Welcome to a brand-new season of New Music Friday! After a few quiet weeks, the flood gates are opening and we've got a whole bunch of essential albums dropping on Jan. 18 to tell you about. This includes the smart, sparkling pop of singer Maggie Rogers, swooning love songs from James Blake, deep introspection from Pedro The Lion's first new album in 15 years, pure joy from Toro y Moi and much more. Host Robin Hilton is joined by NPR Music's Stephen Thompson for this quick sprint through the essential releases for Jan. 18, the first busy drop date for the new year.

The globalization of pop music has been under way for a while now, with the sounds and sensibilities of K-pop, reggaeton and myriad other Latinx styles serving as major sources of fuel.
