Jen Monroe & Discult Soundsystem

Due to a publishing error, our Thursday recommendation failed to go out yesterday. Our apologies for that. At the bottom of this edition we include our more upbeat Friday recommendation as well.

Today we’re listening to Jen Monroe, an endlessly knowledgeable DJ based in New York. Her radio show on NTS, “Getting Warmer,” has exposed the Flow State staff to countless songs and artists that have become standbys. Her specialty is contemporary Japanese and new age music. We’re playing three of her recent radio shows, each of which has its own vibe. May 15 is “spacey,” July 10 is “classic disco/funk/soul,” and August 7 is “airy and spacey and summery.” If you enjoy Monroe’s selections, check out her blog Listen to This!
