On the menu today we’ve got new music from Beck, Coldplay, Leonard Cohen and more!

Thanks For The Dance is a collection of unfinished recordings that Adam Cohen, Leonard’s son, pieced together and produced. It’s haunting and beautiful. Beck continues to be a musical chameleon, always shifting sonic gears and he does so yet again on Hyperspace. Everyday Life is the new double-album from Coldplay and, love’em or hate’em, there are songs here that remind us why they first captured our attention nearly twenty years ago.

We also #PressPlay on a new Tom Waits tribute. Come On Up To The House: Women Sing Waits sees the likes of Phoebe Bridgers, Aimee Mann, Courtney Marie Andrews and others all celebrating the music of Waits. Lots to hear this week, enjoy!
