Music is designed to be shared. Even as we plug in our headphones to hide from the rest of the CTA, we still tweet our favorite songs, gather for shows, and trek to distant deserts for festivals featuring all the same artists as the last festival in the last desert. This is why we built the Reader Interactive Jukebox: it’s a place to listen to music together.

This week, Philip Montoro sneaks some “tamer” Swiss avant-metal into the mix, Luca Cimarusti gets inspired by a DJ spinning Kiss at the Continental, and Leor Galil chases paper with Kevin Gates. Brazilian funk-rock rubs elbows with Canadian electronica. Everyone has a good time.
