M83 - Junk - Mute Records

M83 are a French electronic music band led by Anthony Gonzalez and currently based in Los Angeles. Formed in 2001 in Antibes, France. The band has released seven albums and two soundtracks, including the Grammy Award-nominated Hurry Up, We're Dreaming.

Junk is the seventh studio album by M83, released on April 8, 2016 on Mute Records.

Gonzalez noted that he was inspired by 1970s and 1980s television shows such as Punky Brewster and Who's the Boss?, stating, "I feel like TV shows are starting to sound and look the same. There's no more passion anymore. So this album is a tribute to those old-fashioned shows.” Guitarist Steve Vai makes an uncredited appearance on the track "Go!".

Beck - Wow

Beck - Wow (Single) - Fonograf Records/Capitol Records

On June 2, 2016, Beck released a new single titled "Wow" along with a lyric video of the song. Later that day, it was announced his still untitled thirteenth studio album would be released October 21, 2016.

Tom Breihan from Stereogum writes -

Beck’s masterpiece Odelay turns 20 on June 18th, and with his new single “Wow,” Beck sounds like he’s returning to that album’s sound. More specifically, Beck has somehow come up with a 2016 version of the bemused surrealist funk of Odelay. The track, has trap drums and a woozy flute-loop and a little bit of just-woke-up rapping from Beck. It also has a big, sweet, incandescent hook. It’s a great song! And a vast departure from the somber Beck of Morning Phase.

 

Todd's Two Too! airs Friday mornings 8:30-9:00 during Jerianne's Morning Show on 89.5 KVMR FM Nevada City.
