Sylvan Esso, LP, Will Butler from Arcade Fire

Big Beat Chicago Artist of the Week: The Flat Five

July 28, 2020
The Big Beat with Ryan Arnold

Sylvan Esso announced Free Love coming this fall and teased us with the song "Ferris Wheel". Will Butler from Arcade Fire returned after five years with "Surrender" from a new solo work called Generations, and LP shared the song "The One You That Love" along with a live stream concert this weekend. It's always a treat to the debut a song by a Chicago artist so it is especially cool for this week's Big Beat Chicago Artist of the Week, The Flat Five, to give the honor of spinning "Drip A Drop."The entire playlist is below and online and you can check out playlists to past Big Beats here.

If you head out crate diving at local, independent, or family-owned music stores, wear a mask and let me know what you find! Connect with me on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. My handle on all three of 'em is RyanArnoldRocks.

Your pal,
-Ryan A.
