MBE Jan. 24: Let the festivities for Willie Nelson’s 90th begin!

Hosted by and

Brooklyn’s Big Crown Records has become one of our most reliable sources for impeccably produced throwback soul and funk sounds with room for modern experimentation. A fresh cut from Norwegian newcomer Les Imprimés easily continues the winning streak so we’re giving it a spin.

We’re also spinning a solid sampler platter of tracks from the freshly dropped KCRW Top 30 chart. We love to see usual suspects: Everything But the Girl, Eddie Chacon, and Biig Piig represented… But it’s even cooler to see the mysterious Filipino project NGAW that we’ve been championing for weeks debut at number 20. 

And we’re giving you a chance to win tickets to Willie Nelson’s 90th birthday bash at the Hollywood Bowl on April 29 AND April 30! Joining the country-legend for the festivities will be Allison Russell, Beck, Leon Bridges, Snoop Dogg, Tom Jones and more. Let’s go!
