We are super psyched to have tunes from Sydney Wayser, a NYC-based singer-songwriter who makes great music with crunchy harmonies, and a pleasantly ethereal vibe.

The tracks we featured on this episode are “Wake Up,” “Dirty Work,” and “Potions,” but there are plenty of other tasty tracks on her album that you’re sure to enjoy.

Listen to — and pick up for super cheap — her great new album, Bell Choir Coast! Do this now.
