Dust off those linguistics study guides, cause we’re a Nation Of Language now. Anticipation for the Brooklyn based synth pop trio’s KCRW Summer Nights appearance is clearly running high as they soar to the top of this week’s chart. 

Nation Of Language aren’t the only ones joining the first timers club. Mexico City’s Petite Amie, Brisbane’s The Goon Sax, and John Mayer (yes, you read that correctly) all make their KCRW chart debuts this week.
