Tonight’s the night! Vanyaland raises a glass to four years in the game with a little anniversary party at Hojoko in the Fenway, and this week’s V:Music playlist reflects the festive mood. On tap are 24 new-music bangers fit for our party or any other, and there’s a nice little bookending theme at play. Things kick off with RAYE creeping up on the party’s gateway on alt-pop flasher “The Line” and closes with Astrid S.’s solemn closing time anthem “Parties Over.”
In the sweet-spot center, find new jams from A R I Z O N A, The Chain Gang Of 1974, The Preatures, Night Drive, Misterwives, kirstin, Lincoln Jesser, MUSE, Lana Del Rey, Grizzly Bear, Local Natives, CVBZ, Leon Else, Naaz, Wavves, and that devilish Katy Perry + Nicki Minaj joint you’ll be hearing everywhere you go all weekend long.
