For this week’s edition of Here & Now‘s DJ Sessions, host Jeremy Hobson sits down with Travis Holcombe of KCRW, for his latest picks.

We hear artist Tish Hyman, who Holcombe says sounds a lot like Lauryn Hill, and a summer pop song from a group called Miami Horror. We also hear Jamie xx’s song “Gosh,” which Holcombe calls “my favorite track on my favorite album of the year so far.”

Note: We have a Spotify playlist for our weekly DJ Sessions segment. The playlist is updated each week with new songs. Spotify is free to use, but requires a login.
