Travis, HAERTS, and Romy return along with a deeper dive into The National's Matt Berninger with his song produced by Booker T. Jones and a little something-something from The Shins. Big Beat Chicago Artist of the Week, Baby Jesus Paper Boy, gave us a preview of the new project due next month. 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.
