It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a new single from Brooklyn’s finest discodelic trio Say She She will always race to the top of KCRW’s Top 30 chart. This week offers no exception to that rule as our DJ’s blast Say She She’s latest, “Reeling,” far and wide.

Other noteworthy additions can be found within the NME’s latest installment of their storied mixtape series, C23. This year’s model features all manner of KCRW heavy-hitters including Genesis Owusu, 070 Shake, and King Princess. But admittedly, all of the on-air action is coming via powerhouse vocalist Danielle Ponder’s swoon-worthy new jam “Spiraling.” 

Plus, this week’s Top 30 Spotify playlist is certain to get your blood pumping with nu-disco heat from Moon Boots, The Phenomenal Handclap Band, and Alan Braxe.
