It’s the Hanukkah edition of This Song! Adrian Galvin, aka Yoke Lore,  plays his own brand of blissed out folk pop. Listen as he explores how singing “In the Window” with his family as a child during Hanukkah opened his eyes to the deeply connective possibilities of music.  And you’ll definitely want to hear his theory about music and magic.

This year, Austin’s Walker Lukens released his second album Tell It To The Judge, produced by Spoon’s Jim Eno. It’s a hook-laden mix of pop, rock, electronic, and obtuse lyrics, music that you can emotionally understand without necessarily literally understanding. Listen as Lukens describes how Fleetwood Mac’s “Sara” works in a similar way for him, and hear how it’s gotten him through some tough times.
