It’s been a very heavy week, in an already heavy time. We’ve become more aware than ever that music can’t solve all the world’s problems, no matter how much we wish it could. But we’ve also realized that now more than ever, it’s important to hold onto the things that offer us joy, connection, and some much-needed reprieve from the world’s heaviness. Check out what the music world has been up to for your weekly dose of some welcome good news:
