Bob Mould, IDLES, Phoebe Bridgers

The Big Beat with Ryan Arnold
By 93XRT

It was a privilege to share Bob Mould's raucous "American Crisis" with XRT listeners for the first time tonight. He and his friend and longtime band mate Jason Narducy talked to me over the weekend. Take a peek here.

Fontaines D.C. and IDLES made for an explosive start to the show; Cigarettes After Sex, Frank Ocean, and Nightly helped to mellow things out. Big Beat Chicago Artist of the Week The Claudettes balanced the night out with some soul! The whole show’s playlist is below and available online here.

Thanks for listening to the Big Beat and WXRT. It means so much to me that you allow me to play you some music I've been discovering. Let me know what you're getting into!  Connect with me on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. My handle on all three of 'em is RyanArnoldRocks.

Your pal,-Ryan A.
