The Shins have been teasing us with hints of new music and last week they confirmed with the song "The Great Divide." Sunflower Bean has (another) ripper and Big Beat Chicago Artist of the Week, Mooner, graciously allowed us to premier the debut single from their third album you can scoop this Friday. The entire playlist is below and online and you can check out playlists to past Big Beats here.
I mention every week because it's so important - support the artists you hear on the Big Beat and WXRT by buying their music from, whenever you can, a local, independent, or family-owned music store and, when you head out crate diving, wear a mask and let me know what you find! Connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. My handle on all three of 'em is RyanArnoldRocks.
Your pal,-Ryan A.
