PRESS PLAY: 5 New Albums out January 10th!
We’ve turned over the calendar and with it welcome the return of #PressPlay – our weekly deep dive into new music releases. 2020 starts off with a brand new album from XPN’s January ‘Artist to Watch’ Devon Gilfillian. His major label debut, Black Hole Rainbow, is inspired collection of psychedelic soul. Check out some of our favs! Also this week, you’ll find some raucous rock and roll courtesy of the Philly band Beach Slang, a wonderful indie-pop record from Field Music, a re-issue of some classic Philly Soul, and more!
