This is Sample Size, our weekly new music feature with KOSU's Ryan LaCroix and LOOKatOKC music critic Matt Carney.

Today, Matt plays new music from Blood Orange, Angel Olsen, and Whitney.

This is Sample Size, our weekly new music feature with KOSU's Ryan LaCroix and LOOKatOKC pop music columnist Matt Carney.

Today, we have alt-country sounds from Freakwater, unsettling dance music from Floating Points, and a slinky collaboration between Connan Mockasin and Devonte Hynes.
