Vampire Weekend, Shawn Mendes, Lizzo, Kylie Minogue & More: Must-Hear Music Podcast


Father of the Bride is no longer just an endlessly watchable Steve Martin/Diane Keaton remake from the '90s: It's also a new Vampire Weekend album. On this week's Must-Hear Music podcast we look at "Stranger" from that album and reflect on the band continuing to wave that Paul Simon flag well into their fourth album.

Lizzo is represented by the irresistible empowerment anthem "Juice" from her debut Cuz I Love You, Kylie Minogue pops up the Tom Tom Club-meets-Blondie banger "New York City" from her upcoming Step Back In Time: The Definitive Collection (which she debuted in New York City last year), and we also chat Kindness' sophisticated disco-leaning "Lost Without" featuring Seinabo Sey.

Plus – Shawn Mendes returns with "If I Can't Have You," which shows his continued sonic maturation as he mines lyrical themes similar to "Lost In Japan."
