All the Rage no. 44 – March 28, 2018: Left-field Lorde!

Your biweekly source of the best left-field pop/rock/punk/dance from Canada, Australia and beyond. This week: A superstar like Lorde may not be left-field pop, but I think she’s just great. And because she’s coming to town (with Run the Jewels! And Mitski!) at the end of the month, that’s a good enough excuse to break out a couple of nifty remixes, in addition to the usual awesome sounds of the underground.

Your setlist:

Lorde, Supercut (El-P Remix) (f. Run the Jewels)

Miesha and the Spanks, Lost Boy

Kaptur, Pixel

US Girls, Poem
