Richmond Duo Lean Year Share Cosmopolitan Playlist

Richmond, Virginia duo Lean Year released their stirring, self-titled debut on Western Vinyl last week. It's a somber, amorphous rock record that plays like a cathartic cry, hitting on folk, jazz and ambient art pop. We asked vocalist Emilie Rex and filmmaker/musician Rick Alverson to make a playlist of some of their favorite songs as of late.
