NPR icon NPR Music Presents: Josh Ritter In Concert

by Stephen Thompson
Laura Wilson

Ritter's new album, The Beast in Its Tracks, is by any definition a breakup record; he wrote it following his own divorce, and every song finds him picking through a relationship's wreckage in pursuit of root causes and a way forward. Watch him perform the album's songs live on Monday, March 4 in an exclusive First Listen Live show for NPR Music.

NPR icon First Listen: Les Sins, 'Michael'

by Andy Beta
Andrew Paynter
Toro y Moi's Chaz Bundick makes overt advances to the dance floor on his first album as Les Sins. But he keeps his mind on pop music, too, as he doles out pleasures in three-minute bites.

NPR icon First Listen: Deerhoof, 'La Isla Bonita'

by Max Savage Levenson
Chad Kamenshine
Deerhoof has always toyed with the whimsical, but its 12th album feels like its most playful work yet. More relaxed than its predecessors, it retains the long-running band's capacity to thrill.
