Mario Cotto of KCRW joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to share music he’s hearing out of Europe, including the Norwegian artist Mørk, whom Cotto recently met in Norway.

“He took me to his studio and played some of his work for me and I just thought ‘This is perfect, this is that ebullient Scandinavian disco sound,'” Cotto said.
