NPR Music editor and reviewer Stephen Thompson returns to bring listeners some music to wake up the ears.
Thompson calls the visceral upbeat rock song “Man” a powerful statement on gender politics, from the perspective of a “man’s man.”
“I love the way it sounds, so hard-charging and so brash, but there are also these little touches of beauty and lots of crunching riffs,” Thompson told Here & Now’s Robin Young.
The rest of Case’s new album, “The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You” is due out in September 3rd.
Jeremy Hobson joins Robin Young as co-host of Here & Now in its new 2-hour format, from WBUR and NPR.
