Lawrence songwriter Sam Billen's obsession with Magic 107.3FM, the J-Pop education obtained directly from the source, the Todd Rundgren LPs— it all adds up to his latest album “Headphones and Cellphones” (listen to our podcast preview). Though the former co-frontman of The Billions' songwriting sensibility is more akin to Sufjan Stevens or the Postal Service, it’s often delivered with a knowing smirk.
Margo May is a songwriter from Kansas City who sings Americana-styled tunes influenced by faves like Sparklehorse and Neko Case.
