This is an open letter to Charlie Wilson. We’re so stoked for your Hollywood Bowl show in July, and since it looks like you’re in the neighborhood already, why not swing by for a cozy MBE set on your way? We promise you’ll be treated to impeccable sound, top-notch conversation, and excellent snacks. So what do you say, is it a date? We’re sending out “No Words” in your honor today, in hopes that you’ll get back to us with one simple word: “yes.”
Also in today’s mix, a factory-fresh new tune from Depeche Mode to announce a forthcoming album, and 2023 world tour. Plus, we flirt with the idea of introducing Global Beat: Sweden as we sample some smooth Scandinavian sounds from Doris, Dina Ogon, and Stella Explorer — all of whom are giving serious lounge lizard… but make it fashion.
