Emo outfit Oso Oso (aka New Yorker Jade Lilitri) stopped by the Paste Studio in Manhattan to perform songs from their new album Basking in the Glow, out now via Triple Crown Records. Paste’s Ben Salmon wrote, “Basking in the Glow is not only the fulfillment of the promise Lilitri showed on The Yunahon Mixtape, it’s one of the best pop-rock records of 2019.”
In this session, Lilitri delivers stripped-down versions of his yearning emo-tinged indie rock. Oso Oso performed three songs, all from Basking in the Glow: “the view,” “a morning song” and “dig.” Lilitri also talks about listening to The Ergs and Against Me! in high school and then getting into bands like Death Cab for Cutie, Weatherbox, The Sidekicks and Hop Along. He also jokes that the Wolfgangs Vault tapes, displayed in the background of the Paste NYC studio, are actually just blackmail.
