Description

In May, we swooned to Olivia Rodrigo's Sour, marveled at Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen, went back to the '90s with The Zolas, bathed in the opulent luxury of Sinéad Harnett's voice, got lost in Bill Laurance's piano universe, and jazz group Sound Prints expanded its possibilities.

Songs featured on this episode:
• Olivia Rodrigo: "jealousy, jealousy" from Sour
• Sharon Van Etten & Angel Olsen, "Like I Used To"
• The Zolas: "Yung Dicaprio" from Come Back to Life
• Sinéad Harnett: "Stay" from Ready is Always Too Late
• Bill Laurance: "Cables Rewired" from Cables Rewired
• Sound Prints: "The Flight" from Other Worlds
