FEATURING Athena Koumis


On today's episode we welcome Athena Koumis to the table. Athena is the current Head of Music Culture and Curation at XITE and former editor at Spotify.

We go deep on a range of sounds like London’s 10 piece avant-Jazz collective SEED Ensemble, to New York’s own genre defying band IGBO.

We discuss a mesmerizing delivery from the Long Island band Mr Twin Sister, and a cutting, deeply personal demo from an artist named Chris Miles.

We bop with Claud’s “If I Were You,” ride with Slowya.Roll’s “Broken,” and drift out of heartbreak with Baby Rose’s “Sold out,” amongst more.
