Bartees Strange has been on every “artist to watch” and “best new” list for the past several years. With his latest album, Farm to Table, he’s serving up the goods.

This is an artist who broke onto the music scene by sharing an album of reinterpretations of songs from the National, but has a deep love of DC punk and hip-hop. And with Farm to Table, Strange showcases that fluidity of music language.

It’s an album full of discovery, an artist discovering themselves on a personal and musical level. Check it out for yourself as we listen to Farm to Table all week long.
