New tracks from Secret Treehouse, Scott Krokoff, Sacred Paws, Olden Yolk, The Black Keys

The latest single from Norway's Secret Treehouse expresses what many people around the world are feeling these days: that everything is in the "Wrong Hands." Vocalist Anja Bere sings softly of "smoke and hate in the air" to a jangly pop melody that builds into a stadium-worthy anthem. Based in Bergen, Norway, this self-described "pop orchestra" has quickly become one of our favorites.

New York singer-songwriter Scott Krokoff has been a favorite of ours for some time, with his well-crafted songs and often self-effacing lyrics. His latest single, "Something I'd Like To Know," is a breezy pop tune that describes "the life of an introvert" who envies others' self-assurance. "How does it feel when everybody loves you? How does it feel to say the things you want to?"


The second album from Sacred Paws, Run Around the Sun, is our introduction to the Scottish duo of Rachel Aggs and Eilidh Rodgers. Aggs' guitars, Rodgers' drums and the duo's intertwined voices create what AllMusic calls "a joyous indie-pop listening experience." Our featured track is "The Conversation," in which their sometimes alternating, sometimes joined voices suggest a discussion that veers between argument and agreement.

Singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Shane Butler (of Quilt) and Caity Shaffer create folky, poetic art rock as Olden YolkThey've just released their second album, "Living Theatre," and we're featuring "Grand Palais," which AllMusic says "approximates the eerie, infectious folk-rock of the late '60s, complex ethereal harmonies, jammy guitar solo, shaker, drum fills, and all."

Much more down-to-earth is the guitar-and-drums rock-and-roll of The Black Keys, who land in our New Music Bin once again with "Go," the latest single from their upcoming Let's Rock LP. 

In addition to the tracks featured in our New Music Bin, we're constantly adding music - both new and old - to our big playlist. And we expand our musical scope even further on two Sunday programs: 
  • The Birch Street Bistro, which showcases singer-songwriters.
  • The Detour, where we veer off the beaten path to discover new indie music and dig up old deep tracks.
