This is NOT 97, a home for discovering new music from talented, under-the-radar artists around the world.

On each episode, three hosts and a guest meet around a table at Only NY to discuss fresh music found in the depths of the Internet. They present two tracks each, released in the last six to eight months from artists with under ten thousand followers. Discourse and context round out each show, as the team breaks down what they hear and what each sound means to them.

We're halfway through season five, and today we're joined by prolific hip hop journalist Regina Cho, known for her work with Billboard, Genius, Hot 97, and more.

Cho delivers with two local NYC artists — an explosive young lyricist named Asoh Black! and a smooth, subtle vocalist named Jus. We discuss up-and-coming Chicago wordsmith Brittney Carter, left field England five piece AlaskaAlaska, as well as the track "Road Safety", a piercingly sweet offering from Boston-based Cehryl.
