Wednesday New Artist Discovery #Happens

June 5th, 2024

Happy Wednesday! Your Alternative New Artist Discovery Of The Week is SMITH.

Today you get VIP Access with the artist and producer, who has been mostly incognito until now.

Foster The People “Lost In Space” claims #1 Most Added this week. Congrats to 300 Elektra/Atlantic’s Greg Dorfman & the team! It’s Foster The People’s Atlantic debut from their long awaited fourth studio album, Paradise State of Mind, set to drop on August 16th. Mark Foster notes, “The record started as a case study of the late Seventies crossover between disco, funk, gospel, jazz, and all those sounds. It was such a beautiful moment in time, when these different styles of music were cross-referencing each other – artists like Nile Rogers and Chic, the Tom Tom Club and Giorgio Moroder.” 

New Music coming tomorrow from 311 and Friday from The Offspring.
