Timely music by Gracie & Rachel, plus Florence & The Machine, Leon Bridges, Death Cab and Muse


Brooklyn chamber-pop duo Gracie & Rachel have been part of our mix since we caught a live show in early 2016, about a year before before they released their self-titled debut album. They recently produced a single and a video, called simply "Her," inspired by current events and celebrating women who take courageous stands. "Call out loud / Hear how it sounds / Stand up tall / Feel the weight of it all." We debuted the track on The Detour a couple of weeks ago, and now we're adding it to the New Music bin. It's available on Bandcamp, with all proceeds going to the anti-sexual-violence organization RAINN. And we encourage you to watch the powerful video.

The rest of our New Music picks this week are the latest singles to spin out of recent albums from major-label artists that need no introduction:

"Patricia," a tribute to Patti Smith
If It Feels Good (Then It Must Be)
Northern Lights
Pressure

We're constantly expanding our big music mix. Along with our our featured New Music picks each week, we're always adding to our library of tracks from the 60s to today.

How do we decide what to include in our playlist? We use a very sophisticated screening process: If we hear it, and we like it, we play it.

And we invite your suggestions! Comment on this page or email us at birchstreetradio@gmail.com
