WEEKLY ADDS 2/01/23 


There is a lot going on this week at Harper Radio, here’s the latest. But first things first, we’re calling it Weekly Adds. Deal with it. Most importantly, make sure to vote for us in the Chicago Reader’s 2022 Best of Chicago Poll. We’ve made the list for the Top 5 Radio Stations in the city! No small feat for a 100 Watt station. Keep in mind the website may take a moment to load, but just look under the “City Life” category and then then “Best Overall Radio Station”. We thank you for you listening!

boygenius – “$20”

From their latest EP “the record”, released January 18th, 2023

Indie supergroup “boygenius” put out their second EP this month. The band consists of Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus, who all make an appearance on this track. Truly feeling like an ensemble piece, you can hear a bit of each member’s own skillsets, sound and tastes throughout the EP.

The Arcs – “Eyez”

From the album “Electrophonic Chronic” released January 27th, 2023

Speaking of supergroups, The Arcs released their second album since their debut in 2015. After the passing of bandmember Richard Swift in 2018, it was unknown if the band would continue. Now spearheaded by Black Keys founder, Dan Auerbach, The Arcs came back in a very psychedelic way with the new album “Electrophonic Chronic”.

Spacey Jane feat. BENEE – “Lot’s Of Nothing”

Single released January 10th 2023

Spacey Jane released this track in June of 2022, however they released a version featuring singer “BENEE” best known for “Supalonely” in 2019. Certainly poppy, but also undeniably indie.

Lucero – “Macon If We Make It”

From their latest EP “Macon If We Make It” released January 18th, 2023

Rock out with this one from Lucero. Slightly country, slightly alternative. Lucero definitely has a unique sound. Also, who doesn’t love a good play on words?

HARBOUR – “Bahamas”

Off the EP “I’ve Only Started Running”, released January 27th, 2023

Take a little trip to the Caribbean with HARBOUR off their latest EP “I’ve Only Started Running”. It’s got an upbeat, surf rock, jangle all the way through. Perfect for surfin’ the big waves. (Note: You may need to go somewhere else besides the Midwest to catch said big wave.)

A.R.S – “8:46” 

From his new album “Excel” released March 31st, 2021

Located in Lawrence, Massachusetts, A.R.S creates hip-hop that harkens back to the classic era of the genre. Using distinct beats, a jazzy sample and socially conscious lyrics; it all has the making for memorable track.
