Weekend Showcase 3.39

With Friday the 13th around the corner and Halloween close behind it, the Weekend Showcase 3.39 edition is, for the most part, a dark and sinister playlist. As such, get a head start of the days meant to get scare, startle, and haunt you. Fifty-four songs are on the playlist.

New Zealand’s Anthonie Tonnon

New Zealand’s Anthonie Tonnon

Last week, Anthonie Tonnon, who hails from Auckland, New Zealand, released “The Songs of Your Youth”. The song is the first single from his forthcoming album, Successor. The track is characteristic of the orchestral indie-pop that is coming out of New Zealand – classical arrangements and instruments (in this case the piano) with a rousing chorus. It’s a great track, […]
