The Current brings you closer to new music and to new artists. We provide a curated experience of bringing music to you as we receive it, keeping you up to date on what's new, with a particular focus on independent music you won't hear on any other radio station.

Every Monday, our music director David Safar hosts New Hot, a program that highlights new releases — many of them even before they've hit the streets.

During our winter member drive, we're continuing our commitment to helping you discover new music by creating a supersize New Hot of sorts. Throughout the drive, we'll feature new tunes by established artists as well as new music by emerging acts.

Here's a playlist of the hot-off-the-vinyl-press tunes you'll hear throughout our member drive.
