“IV is the sum of the I, II, and III.” That was the driving thought behind the fourth installment of the Eaux Claires music festival according to the festival’s homepage. In years past, co-creators Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner have used the weekend in the woods to shine a light on emerging artists and give fans the opportunity to see influential artists of a massive scale.

Rich the Kid’s debut album is front-loaded, lacks consistent quality

“Get off your a** and hustle,” is the first line on Rich the Kid’s debut album The World Is Yours. He goes on to rap, “I’m the definition of a hustler,” which could not be more true. While The World Is Yours has been marketed as his first album, he’s been a star in the trap scene for half a decade. In the past five years, he’s released a staggering 18 mixtapes which, on average, meant a new project every three months. On top of that, he founded his own record label Rich Forever Music all before signing a deal of his own. Rich is a hustler in every sense of the word.

Their first output since 2015, Cocoa Sugar is yet again an expansion of their incredible musical palette.

Woodes, a young singer, song-writer and producer from Melbourne, Australia, is an artist who uses her haunting voice to paint a picture of a dream world untouched by the evils that plague earth. Her music is pure and innocent and she’s a beautiful storyteller whose youth shines through her lyrics with a sense of eager anticipation for the future. –Logan Rude

Her’s, a duo from Liverpool with music oddly reminiscent of both 80s pop-rock and 60s surf-rock, is about as fun as two guys can get with just their voices, two guitars and a computer. They are spunky and loud; though a little older, they resemble two quirky misfits from a 90s teenage flick who just want to have a good time. Keep an eye out for their album Songs of Her’s due out later this year. –Logan Rude
