Staff writer Amanda Petrusich and frequent contributor Hua Hsu share their must-listens from across genres.

Since its inception in 1925, The New Yorker has been the go-to publication for witty political commentary, satire, cultural criticism, compelling fiction and clever comics, and is home to some of the most respected journalistic voices in the game. While its front-of-book coverage of music and listings focuses on NYC, its in-depth features are far-reaching, covering the scenes and sounds shaping our global community. Today, Vivian will welcome staff writer Amanda Petrusich and long-time contributor Hua Hsu — they have been covering music and the culture around it for over two decades, with bylines in The New York Times, The Wire, The FADER and Pitchfork, among many others — into the studio to dissect the year in music and reflect on the trends that have defined it.
