Deciding what tracks will be included on each exclusive Live at KEXP compilation can be an arduous task. There are just too many great in-studio sessions each year, and even with a full 20 tracks on Live at KEXP Volume Four, there were many fantastic performances that couldn’t be included. And even with a standout performance like The Hold Steady‘s session during KEXP’s broadcast at CMJ in 2007, our Programming Director, Kevin Cole, along with John Richards and Cheryl Waters, still had trouble choosing just one song. Ultimately, “Your Little Hoodrat Friend” made the cut, but you can also check out one of the other front runners from the session, “Chips Ahoy,” filmed by our friends at New York Noise.
