Bronx rapper T-Shyne calls his latest project, Confetti Nights, a celebration that follows a professional basketball player from his rookie year to his first championship. It's part fiction, part autobiographical and produced with help from NBA star Kevin Durant. On this week's show, we talk about the stories T-Shyne shares on Confetti Nights and why he thinks fans will connect with it more than any of his previous work.

We've also got a sprawling double album from Norwegian singer Sondre Lerche, insanely catchy hooks from the Canadian pop artist known as LIGHTS, the Dutch experimental group GGGOLDDD and more. Contributors Christina Lee and Cyrena Touros join Radio Milwaukee's Tarik Moody and host Robin Hilton as they share their picks for the best new albums out on April 1.
