We’re almost halfway through the year and the music keeps getting better and better. The Weekend Showcase 2.23 edition is Exhibit A, as this playlist that features 53 songs is arguably one of the best. Ten countries (Australia, Canada, England, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, Sweden, and the United States) are represented, and the artists are some well-known acts while others are brand new but will be favorites soon.

The playlist and tracklisting, as usual, follow the list of articles from the past week. Enjoy the great music and discover music’s hidden gems.
