The staff at our sister station KUTX scour the earth to bring listeners the best music. Each Friday, they share three of their favorite songs on Morning Edition.
First up, here's a recent ACL Fest standout by the name of ... Noname. The rapper started out in Chicago's poetry community before branching out into self-produced, self-released music. "Don't Forget About Me" is a song that is so conversational, Noname sounds like she’s right there in the room with you.
Next up, a new song from former KUTX Artist of the Month Moving Panoramas. This is a band that blends harmonies and rock 'n' roll for a sound that is both dreamy and driving. Their new record is out next year, but for now, we got “Baby Blues.”
The last song this week comes from Adrianne Lenker, the singer and guitarist for the band Big Thief. Lenker just put out a solo record, and she shows why she’s considered one of the best songwriters around. “Symbol” is a quiet and hypnotic little song that shows you don’t need a lot of chords to make a big impact.
