This week on the Listening Booth hit up some electronica via the new album by Ladyhawke, lofi alternative from newcomer Whitney, and a folk bloc by the collaboration of case/lang/veirs. Plus, inspired by the recent BTRToday birthday celebration, DJRePete dives deep into the archives for a throwback alt rock set for you to discover or rediscover.
