Upcoming on Audioasis: Palodine & Barton Carroll

Hopefully with last week being Labor Day weekend and Bumbershoot going on, you still managed to catch some or all of Altspeak and Telepathic Liberation Army. If not, Altspeak is back this week as part of the end-of-the-night showcase, and you can always visit our trusty streaming archive.

DJ’s Hannah Levin and Shani are taking Audioasis back to the High Dive tonight with all benefits from the show going to One America, an organization that works towards the advancement of immigrant, civil and human rights. But whether you’re at the High Dive or not, you can hear great sets from Palodine and Barton Carroll live on KEXP.

Palodine (6:30PM), consisting of Michael Aryn and Katrina Whitney, has proven to be one of the KEXP DJs’ local crushes recently, appearing most recently at the first annual Concerts at the Mural series and getting Song of the Day honors a few months back for Woman of Cain. With Labor Day behind us, I can’t think of any other local band I’d rather usher in the Fall with. Though their music is too beautiful to ever be creepy, it dangles listeners on the edge with lots of religious imagery, echo-chamber vocals and other frostbit production techniques. Their latest album, Garden of Deceit, uses great contrasting elements such as hollow xylophone tones ringing over stark guitar strums to great effect. Come see what it sounds like in the cavernous High Dive.

Barton Carroll (8PM) will close out this week’s show with some lighter country fare, or at least that’s what you’ll hear if you dismiss his lyrics. On his latest album, The Lost One, Carroll follows the anti-hero and all accompanying weaknesses across a folk-rock landscape of fiddles and lap-steel guitar. Carroll has a simple, undecorated delivery that serves as the perfect storytelling tool for his often troubling and literary lyrics. Most of Carroll’s songwriting is inspired by books, including his previous album, Love & War, which was heavily influenced by Elie Wiesel’s Night Trilogy. Those of you who are unfamiliar with Carroll’s solo work may recognize his contributions to bands like Crooked Fingers, Dolorean and Azure Ray. Catch him tonight at the High Dive and again when he plays the Tractor Tavern tomorrow.
