The Pop Shop Podcast is excited to present the first episode that folds the two-year-old Must-Hear Music into the Pop Shop Podcast, which recently celebrated its third anniversary. Today's roundup of music recommendations comes courtesy of Sad13 a.k.a. Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz.
Chatting with Billboard staffer Joe Lynch, Sad13 (pronounced "sad thirteen") shares a stylistically eclectic list of contemporary songs she's been digging. It's everything from the soulful electronic songcraft of Nao to Dreezy's takedown of a drunk-texting ex ("Wasted") to Shamir's jangly guitar foray "Tryna Survive" to the hypnotic tidal waves of noise from Chicago's Melkbelly.
