Radiosaurus Pick of the Week: “Lose It” by Austra. I cannot wait for this group’s debut album, Feel It Break, to come out next month. Austra promises such a unique sound, defined by the one-of-a-kind vocalist featured in all of their promo material, and I think it will be something incredible to hear.

Thanks again for listening!

Prehistorically yours,
Bryan
