Soundcheck May 4 – Have a great summer!

Thanks for tuning into Soundcheck’s last show of the semester, and for making it a great one! Catch up on the songs from this week’s show here.

Bishop Briggs’ much anticipated album Church of Scars is finally here, and it proves to be a stellar debut. “White Flag” was featured on today’s show. Singles “River” and “Wild Horses” have had airtime on Soundcheck previously, and “The Fire” and “Hallowed Ground” are other outstanding tracks.

In other new music news, Florence + the Machine announced that their fourth studio album will be titled High as Hope and will be released on June 29. The second single from this album, “Hunger,” dropped yesterday, after “A Sky Full of Song” came out last week. Very excited about the new sound and new album.

Good luck with the last of finals and have a lovely summer. Soundcheck will return in the fall!


Soundcheck Apr. 27 – Happy Dandelion Day!

Happy Dandelion Day to everyone at the U of R! Hope you are enjoying the great weather. Catch up on this week’s equally festive track list here, with new music from Seinabo Sey and Florence + the Machine.

Check out Mike Dean’s remix of Dermot Kennedy’s “Moments Passed.” You might know him for mixing records for hip hop artists including Kanye West and Jay Z, so it’s exciting to hear his sound on a distinctly different type of song.

Swedish artist Seinabo Sey’s latest single “Breathe” is out now. Her debut album Pretend came out less than three years ago, and it’s made serious waves. “Hard Time” and “Pistols at Dawn” are definitely worth listening to again now.

As always, thank for tuning in to Soundcheck!

Soundcheck Apr. 13

There’s lots of new music featured on this week’s track list! Some standouts include “Couldn’t Tell” from Dermot Kennedy’s latest EP, Lowes’ single “Here We Are,” and “What It’s Like Now” from Mikky Ekko’s Advance Copy.

Spelles is out with her sophomore EP Skeleton Coast I, with singles “Dead in the Water” and “Teach Me How to Pray.” New track “Down to the River” had airtime on today’s show. I love all of the water-related imagery which reminded me of early Florence + the Machine. On the flip side, the other two songs on the EP are “Light Me on Fire” and “Wildfire,” so there’s a balance! Looking forward to a studio album from Spelles.

Australian artist Woodes’ EP Golden Hour includes “Hunger” from today’s show. Her first appearance on Soundcheck was with her self-titled debut EP last year.

As always, thanks for tuning in and stay dry this weekend!
