This Week’s Featured Artists
Listen out for this week’s featured artists:
Monday: Bauhaus (“Founding fathers of goth rock, driven by moody post-punk dynamics and jagged guitar chords, plus the manic mysticism of singer Peter Murphy”)
Tuesday: Le Tigre (“Originally conceived as the live backing band for her Julie Ruin solo project, Bikini Kill founder and quintessential riot grrrl Kathleen Hanna formed Le Tigre, another bold, feminist-oriented trio”)
Wednesday: The Boggs (“Mercurial band fronted by Jason Friedman with divergent sounds from Appalachian punk-folk to raucous indie rock”)
Thursday: Acid Mothers Temple (“Japanese band blends hippie psychedelica with grimy metal and prog rock”)
Friday: Half Japanese (“The Fairs’ gleefully off-kilter, unabashedly amateurish take on jangly pop influenced a wide swath of punk experimenters”)
