Van Common (@vancommon)—the Amsterdam-based singer-songwriter featured on episode two—was in town and had time to drop by the Only NY shop. This is season one’s bonus episode. The recent conservatory graduate came equipped with two picks from his alma mater: Midas and Bungalow.

We reach to Melbourne once again, and as a testament to the scene’s diversity, feature wildly different sounds (and takes on a break up) from Liv Cartledge and Jaala.

Shadowy rap acts from Massachusetts and New Jersey come to the table to display the rich crop of talent budding in the sidelines of major American cities.
