Jeremy D. Larson rounds up some of the year’s finest new musical works, featuring Jóhann Jóhannsson, Anna Meredith, Daniel Wohl and more.

Get tangled up in electro-acoustic netting and tripped up by meter changes on a dime – it’s the best compositions of 2016 on Undertones. Host Jeremy D. Larson chose eight songs that represent some of his favorite compositions of the year, all of which fit somewhat neatly into the vibe explored each month on this program. Featured herein: perennial Undertones favorite Oliver Coates, the electric cavalcade of Anne Meredith, new pieces from Daniel Wohl and Anders Hillborg, and some extra love for the score to the film Arrival composed by Jóhann Jóhannsson.
