I start this week's show with a new song Julien Baker recorded with her boygenius band mates and friends, Lucy Dacus and Phoebe Bridgers. It's called "Favor."

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah is back with a batch of great songs, and for one of those tracks, frontman Alec Ounsworth looks back and tries to come to terms with the discomforts of his early days in the band. The song is called "CYHSY 2005."

BONZIE looks at the idea of the current moment we're in as a time to reset ourselves. Her album, Reincarnation, feels like a relatively upbeat view of our current lockdown. There are also excellent harmonies from The Sea The Sea and a song inspired by a move from the woods to the city — and imagining the stories we all carry with us as we stroll the streets. Eve Adams has a stark song about the afterlife, written after a personal tragedy; and the New York band Suss takes us on a sonic adventure with the group's "pastoral psychedelicism."
