Some first and second listens on this week’s show with Doves, iDKHOW, and Whitneyalong with Big Beat Chicago Artist of the WeekWhite Mystery. The entire playlist is below and onlineand you can check out playlists to past Big Beats here.
I mention every week because it’s so important – support the artists you hear on the Big Beat and WXRT by buying their music from, wehever you can, a local, independent, or family-owned music store and, when you head out crate diving, wear a mask and let me know what you find! Connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. My handle on all three of ’em is RyanArnoldRocks.
On Monday, July 29, 2019, Miss Alex White performed in the third annual Soho House Mixtape project. Her song, “Gone Wise” is a true collaboration and execution on vision. Olivia Koivisto from Writing Club wrote the lyrics, Miss Alex White arranged the song and melody, Tony Scott-Green wrote the guitar hook, Mark and Rob locked down the rhythm section, J. Ivy contributed spoken word poetry to the bridge, the Music Club shouted gang vocals, then Sam Fishkin recorded and mixed the track. Veronica Kretzers created an entire bespoke outfit for Miss Alex White, then Robbie Botts shot the video on a 1990s camcorder at the Liar’s Club in Chicago. Listen to it here:
