#10 “Six-Pack” – shame

An energetic post-punk track off of shame's upcoming record Food For Worms, to be released 2/24. Make sure to check out the amazing music video, which aims to be a lost PS1 era video game titled A Napoleon Adventure

#9 “Gamma Rays” – Temples

UK psych group Temples is finally back with a sunny and groovy sound. Their new record Exotico will be out 4/14 and is produced by none other than Sean Ono Lennon.

#8 “Your Love” – Squirrel Flower

A full-band version of their song from last year "your love is a disaster". The sadness that was brought in with the original has been newly amplified.

#7 “Love Is All I Needed” – Mandaworld

Rising synthy-electronic artist Mandaworld with their infectious dance track "Love Is All I Needed"

#6 “The Weakness” – Ruston Kelly

Country artist Ruston Kelly is going big on this upcoming record. We're getting Manchester Orchestra vibes and that's not something we would have expected to say last week. Their album The Weakness is out 4/7.

#5 “Evolution” – Braids

Canadian trio, Braids, is back following up their 2020 album Shadow Offering. Their new record Euphoric Recall will be out 4/28.

#4 “LM” – Barleaux

Cincinnati artist, by way of New York, Barleaux made it on the charts again with their yet to be released song LM. As of now, you can only listen to LM exclusively through Inhailer Radio!

#3 “$20” – boygenius

Indie darlings supergroup (Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus) are following up their 2018 debut EP with their upcoming album, simply titled The Record. Three singles were released in anticipation of the record, with each member getting one to lead, $20 being the Julien Baker-led track.

#2 “Oceans Niagara” – M83

M83 returning to the Top 10 with the lead single from their upcoming album Fantasy. Speaking on this track, “I wanted to create this sense of friendship. Listening to that song, I imagine people running, driving fast, or riding spaceships together. It’s this sense of going forward. Like a magic potion that you take to discover new worlds.” - Anthony Gonzalez

#1 “Tropic Morning News” – The National

Cincinnati's finest export rising quickly to the #1 spot with the lead single from their upcoming 9th studio album The First Two Pages of Frankenstein. Here's to hoping that their 2023 tour ends up with a Homecoming Music Festival return as well.

Thank you for stopping by again.

Remember, we might be your Cincinnati "independent" radio, but without the support of YOU (our passionate listeners) and our generous donors, we wouldn't be!

Tune in to hear these cool tunes while you ease your way into the weekend.

Keep listening and we will keep the airwaves fresh.
