Get thee into the Listening Booth this fine Wednesday for a mix of new and old. Hit up R&B from flowers de moon and Alice Jemima, power electronica via Metric and Little Boots, and more more more beats with the latest from Animal Collective. Plus, a globetrotting set headlined by Lula Pena, and an alternative throwback spotlight featuring Toro Y Moi, Eleanor Friedberger, and Throw Me the Statue. And if you’re plotting a May music escape, tune in for info on the Great Escape festival going down in Brighton in the UK. Grab your weekly dose of the Listening Booth on BTRToday!
