LCG & the X

It's the week of March 24, 2020 and here's the new music being played on The Spy. This week includes a new release by The Pretenders, the new album from LCG & the X, material from Chvrches, and so much more.

Last week, we counted down the top 25 Oklahoma songs of 2019. In total, we played 561 new songs on The Oklahoma Rock Show in 2019, so our final list was very competitive.

Every month, NPR member stations in our public radio network let us know what's been on repeat in their worlds to meet your music discovery and streaming needs.

You can expect an epic piano anthem from Florence + The Machine, Kehlani's sassy new dance-floor bop and an acoustic drive-by ballad by Oshima Brothers in this month's playlist. Below are some newfound favorites, all written from the voices of public radio stations across the country.

In early 2017, LCG & the X released several remarkably strong demos on Bandcamp. Now, the band has recorded their debut studio album.

Morgan Hartman, the singer of the Oklahoma City band, talked to KOSU's Ryan LaCroix about the formation of the band, filling out their sound, and raising funds for their debut studio album.
