Cherry Glazerr

As winter departs and springtime begins, Heavy Rotation returns to spotlight a collection of songs by fresh artists, selected by public radio DJs across the country.

This month on Heavy Rotation, hear SOAK's disco-ball beat that won't quit, Faye Webster's vacation breeze of a song that explores the many facets of feeling alone, a raspy battle cry from Mavis Staples and a live SXSW session from BAILEN, best heard down by the creekside and out in the awakened sun.

L.A. garage-punk heros, Cherry Glazerr, are halfway through touring their newest album Stuffed And Ready around America. Our Music Intern, Kyra Bruce took these photos at their show in Kansas City at Record Bar. 

On this sprint through the week's best new albums, host Robin Hilton is joined by NPR Music's Lyndsey McKenna and Stephen Thompson for a whole lot of guitar rock, with a little bit of melancholy, acoustic beauty on the side. This includes Spielbergs, a group from Oslo, Norway, that makes its US debut with a fantastic squeal of feedback on This is Not the End; the L.A. quartet Cherry Glazerr, which just dropped its most emotionally potent and fully formed album ever; Girlpool, Le Butcherettes, the beautifully transporting songs of Tiny Ruins and more.

Every Tuesday, The Spy adds new music to its rotation. Here are the adds for the week of January 15th, 2019. This week includes a new single from L.A. punk rock heroes Cherry Glazerr, the first single from The Cranberries final album, and yet another single from the prolific beach goths The Growlers. Give these a listen and be sure to tune into The Spy to hear more!
