MBE Aug. 10: A Divino Niño exclusive, and a mid-week boost of new releases

Hosted by and

Divino Niño by Kelsey Hart.

Step into our Wednesday wonderland, made up of the dance-forward tracks, mellow vibes, and ethereal rhythms you need to carry you through the rest of the week.

We’ve got the world premiere of Chicago-via-Bogotá quintet Divino Niño’s fiery new single “XO.” In their signature style of gleefully blending the sacred and profane, bandmates Camilo Medina and Javier Forero transform their experiences growing up in “a cultish Christian church” into a summer bop that’ll get you dancing.

Step in time to the snappy pace of this cheeky, bilingual number that’ll immediately have you deconstructing all manner of the “cultish Christian church” stuff that reverberates throughout society. The track doesn’t officially drop until next week… but never fear! You can listen all you like right now.

And once you’re in there, you’ll have full access to everything that we’re throwing at you on this New Music… Wednesday?? Prepare yourself to “Open The Door,” “Step Into the Blue,” and “Cool It Down” this fall with forthcoming records from big-time KCRW faves. We’re talking Little Dragon, Broken Bells, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs who all have singles from their respective new projects out today. Chef’s kisses all around.

*Pro-tip: Catch Divino Niño on the LA leg of their tour with Little Jesus. September 14th at the Echoplex, and September 16th at Primavera Sound LA.
