Artists to watch, breaking trends and new music of 2019, plus Larry Fitzmaurice on Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion.

For our first Peak Time live show of 2019, we dive into three hours of the year’s newest jams from the likes of Deerhunter, Dej Loaf, Noname, Lana del Rey, L-Vis 1990 and more. Vivian highlights some exciting artists to watch (including a few who were slept on in 2018) and muses on new musical trends we might see as the release schedule ramps up. We’ll also take a moment to reflect on Animal Collective’s beloved, multi-layered Merriweather Post Pavilion album (which celebrated its 10-year anniversary yesterday) with journalist Larry Fitzmaurice, who last year ranked every Animal Collective album for Vulture.
