Add of the Week: Illiterate Light, ‘Don’t Settle Down’
Every Monday, Add of the Week unveils all the new songs going into the 88Nine on-air playlist, with one hand-picked selection put in the spotlight by a member of our music team.
Illiterate Light has earned critical praise for its vibes; a mix of modern rock, ’70s psych and folk. Their new album, Aloe, is a mix of tracks with themes and stories, one of which, “Don’t Settle Down” is our pick of the week.
This is a grinder that’s built to work your shoes to bone — a relentless song that’s whip to hip, that’s “gaf to id.” It’s definitely got playlist potential but is perfect for perusing as well. Listen to it here and as part of the 88Nine playlist.
This week’s other adds
- Bleachers, "Modern Girl"
- Wild Nothing, "Suburban Solutions"
