A Few Highlights:

"Child Stars" -- Science Partner

Why it stands out: This song just cuts so hard, especially live. It's an epic, edgy tune with Science Partner's characteristic vocal harmonies. Go see the band play it at 12:45 PM at Krewe during the actual Showcase.

"Weatherman (feat. Mathenee)" -- Foxfield Four

Why it stands out: So happily pop-driven, this song is among the catchiest on the playlist.

"Folklore" -- Josh Quinlan Quartet

Why it stands out: Josh Quinlan shows off his chops in this smooth, Charlie Parker-esque groove, embodying the "sheets of sound" mindset.
