It was during the Sex Pistols' last ever live performance back in '78 when frontman Johnny Rotten posed his now-infamous inquiry: "Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?" As we look out at the four-day weather forecast for this upcoming Memorial Day weekend, we can't help but ask the same question. But while it'll be chilly and cloudy with a chance of disappointment out there around Boston, this week's V:Music playlist brings all the sunshine you'll need. We'd never cheat you.
This week's selection offers up a wide range of the ever-changing definition of pop, to neon bangers from Dagny, Honors, Yoke Lore; gentle tugs from alt-J, Maggie Rogers, Luvabstract, and Ella Vos; upbeat anthems from Bleachers and Coast Modern; and some homegrown selections by Dang Clēts and Cousin Stizz.
