Nassir Nassirzadeh's playlist: 56 years of 'The Velvet Underground + Nico'

Our clocks may have sprung forward, but Nas is taking us back with classic cuts from The Cure, Brian Eno & John Cale, and a celebration of the 56th anniversary of one of the most influential albums of all time, The Velvet Underground & Nico

Also on deck are new singles from Roisin Murphy, Benny Sings feat. Remi Wolf, and Kate Davis, and peeks at new albums from Fever Ray, H. Hawkline (withCate Le Bon helming production), and Mandaworld. And FYC szn is in full swing with the Oscar-nominated song "Naatu Naatu" from "RRR" and a selection artists headed to SXSW, including local LA band Cheekface.
