Out This Week 9/22


Among our guests during KEXP’s broadcast from Musicfest NW this year was the Scottish group The Twilight Sad, who performed several songs from their brand album, Forget the Night Ahead, in their live set at the Doug Fir (watch video here). New York band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, who also performed live that day during our broadcast, have an new EP of their own out today. Beyond that, it’s a smorgasbord of delectable albums you’ll hear on KEXP, including The Big Pink, Le Loup, Islands, Girls, Sea Wolf, Brother Ali, Vic Chesnutt, WHY?, Joshua James, and the first independently released album by Pearl Jam… and there’s plenty more!

There are also a few projects whose names might be less recognizable but whose members you’ll certainly know — Volcano Choir (Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon), Rain Machine (TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone), and Monsters of Folk (a supergroup of M. Ward, Jim James, Connor Oberst, and Mike Mogis) — and whose albums you’ll definitely want to pick up. Check out the rest on Largehearted Boy’s list and enjoy this feast of new releases:
