TUNE IN – 5 Songs We Can’t Stop Listening To is a collection of Radio Milwaukee’s newest favorite songs. Every week they ask an artist that we love to tell us about the music they love. Listen to the whole segment and all the songs below. This week features Judd Apatow + Jerry Paper – SO GOOD!
It starts in sing-song. It could be the lullaby that played every time you opened the music box passed down through generations of your family…
It could be the theme music to the Saturday-morning cartoon you watched while you ate cereal and your parents drank coffee and read the paper in the next room.
And then, the storm — waves and panic and splintered wood. The hardest decision a parent could have to make, and the mortal danger of a child alone on a boat. “Cocoa Sugar” seeps into your marrow and makes you not think about or talk about, but feel about the world’s refugee crisis.
“Cocoa Sugar” sees Young Fathers doing what they do best as a band: capturing tenderness in chaos and community in calamity, and acting as vital ambassadors of radical empathy.

Today, the Manila-based Filipino artist is premiering the video for “No Fun,” alongside the announcement of his album Sensitive G, out November 16th on Lex Records, and his first US headlining tour. Watch the video above + US Tour dates below.
Spanning just a minute, the the video stars Eyedress, face fully bleeding as he drinks a soda, skates, talks on the phone, and generally fucks around outside, ending with him appearing dead,arms across his body as he slides across the screen laying atop his board. The video’s wild and so rad, shot on what looks like VHS, and feels as fed-up as he sounds.
“No Fun’ is about being sick of where you’re from,” Eyedress shared of the clip. “For the video I burnt my face off and went skating near the docks in the oldest part of Manila with my homies Julius Valledor and Joaquin Dimayuga.”
