Erik Blood, The Redwood Plan, The Beats, Man, The Hands, and Sleepy Eyes Of Death all rocked the Sunset last week to benefit Taproot Foundation. The show was a huge success and we want to thank all the bands for their support! Missed the show? You missed out, but check out our Streaming Archive to experience it online.
The Gift Machine and The Beats, Man rock the airwaves from the KEXP studio this week:
The Gift Machine (6PM) recently released their fourth full-length on Knw-Yr-Own Records. Titled Goodbye/Goodluck, it recalls a lo-fi Beatles or Velvet Underground in a laid-back mood. Andrea Gruber’s delicate backing vocals soften Dave Matthies’s deep, Lee Hazlewood-esque lead lines as the instrumentation drifts and buzzes around them. Dreamy stuff.
The Beats, Man (8PM) is impressive, art-damaged, beats-driven dance punk brought to us by Tim Cady and Eric Baldwin, formally of the Pleasureboaters. This is a band that knows how to have a good time.
