On this week's episode of the Eight One Sixty, it’s all about new and recent releases. Also, as today marks five weeks till the election, we’ll start the show with some words of wisdom from KC’s own Janelle Monáe, and Chris will share his absentee voting story — it’s so easy and you (KCMO residents) can vote right now at Union Station.
We’re going to hear two songs from each of these acts, from their new releases: Crystal Rose, Miki P & the Swallowtails, and The Freedom Affair — did you know they were just featured in an Apple Watch commercial?
We’ll also hear a brand new one from Ebony Tusks that doesn’t come out until Nov. 6. It’s so good you’re going to want to preorder the album. We’ll hear a recently released single from Kerosene Culture and from St. Louis, we’ll hear from Slow Dress.
We’ll also pause and share some music from celebrated KC vocalist Molly Hammer, as so many of us are thinking about her these days and remind you about the Visitors For Molly GoFundMe fundraising page.
