Marion Hodges of KCRW in Los Angeles shares a range of new music, including the "post-punk meets dance" sound of the band Pale Blue. She also calls attention to "The Schuyler Sisters," off the soundtrack for Broadway's production of "Hamilton."
Hodges says the song shows the power of the female leads in the musical. "It turns into this very En Vogue, TLC, Destiny's Child kind of thing," she tells Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson.
