Overdue Homework: Weekly Roundup

The last two weeks have been a little hectic, so putting everything in one place for your listening pleasure.

The LPs & EPs

Loving Ella Mai‘s self-titled debut. I’m sure you’ve heard “Boo’d Up,” and you should definitely check out “Sauce” and “Dangerous.” 

boygenius is the supergroup featuring three of the most exciting young songwriters out today: Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus. Their debut EP is all too brief but packs a lot of promise and emotion.

NAO  (pronounced “neigh-oh”) is such an exciting voice coming out of the UK. I did her first couple shows in Chicago and not only is she incredibly talented with a killer band, she is such a sweetheart. The opening song, “Another Lifetime,” goes in so hard. She describes her sound as “wonky funk,” and that pretty much nails it. If this is your first taste, go back and listen to her past releases too.
