New Blue Sun André 300

Andr 3000 New Blue Sun

As one half of Outkast, André 3000 gained a reputation as one of the greatest rappers of all time. Now on his first album since Outkast disbanded, André is not rapping at all. Instead, “New Blue Sun” features him improvising on the flute with an accomplished ambient ensemble.

And The Wind (Live and Loose!) MJ Lenderman

MJ Lenderman And the Wind Live and Loose!)

MJ Lenderman has been gaining notice lately as a solo artist and as the guitarist of Wednesday. After signing with ANTI- Records, Lenderman released a live album called “And The Wind (Live and Loose!).” Jim and Greg agree that the performances and recording quality of these songs are an improvement over many of their original releases, but also agree that comparing this album to Neil Young’s “Rust Never Sleeps” is a stretch.

Jamila Woods has released three full-length albums and each one has been outstanding. A poet, activist, teacher and musician, Woods brings a unique perspective to her musical compositions. For “Water Made Us,” Woods is more personal, vulnerable and also funnier than ever before.

Dear Listeners,

For more than 15 years, Sound Opinions was a production of WBEZ, Chicago's public radio station. Now that the show is independent, we're inviting you to join the band and lend a hand! We need your support more than ever because now we have to do all the behind-the-scenes work that WBEZ handled before (like buying insurance and paying for podcast hosting, ugh). Plus, we have some exciting ideas we'd like to try now that there's no one to tell us no!
