A Week of Photos 2/5

Ok, this is actually more like a month of photos. It’s been slow around the KEXP studio in the early part of the year, so we thought we’d wait a bit and let our collection of amazing in-studio and concert photography build up. So here are some of the highlights from the last few weeks:

Just before winning the Grammy for Best Alternative Album, French band Phoenix performed a short but sweet acoustic set at the Triple Door, just for members of KEXP’s VIP Club, and then packed the massive Showbox SoDo for a swoon-inducing show of danceable electro-pop. Check out photos from the KEXP session and their performance at the Showbox SoDo, which they happened to play with…

The Soft Pack! The band formerly known as The Muslims performed for the second time on KEXP (though last time was in Portland). Four punchy, punky songs plus interview in less than 15 minutes? Hell yes! Check out pix from their KEXP session and performance at the Showbox SoDo.

The golden voice of Grant-Lee Phillips. Why wasn’t he a bigger star? Granted, Grant Lee Buffalo did quite well on the college radio charts back and the day, and he’s doing well enough on his own these days (selling out the Tractor that night, by the way), but, c’mon, with a voice like his he should be huuuuuuge!

Asobi Seksu are frequent visitors to KEXP, but this in-studio was quite special. Touring behind Rewolf, a stripped down reworking of older songs and covers, the typically effects-heavy band performed as an “Acoustic Ensemble,” with Yuki Chikudate mostly behind the toy piano. A beautiful set, which translated to the lush environment of the Triple Door later that evening. Here are more photos from the KEXP session and their performance at The Triple Door

Wild childs Feral Children have definitely grown up — at least sonically — on their new album Brand New Blood. A bit less primal, a bit more experimental, but undeniably fun. [more]

One Be Lo and Senim Silla are Binary Star, the independent hip hop duo formed in Pontiac, Michigan, in the late 90’s. After releasing their well-received 2000 album, Masters Of The Universe, the two split to work on separate projects. Ten years later, Lo and Senim are back and in the KEXP studio no less! [more]

The Seattle transplant Barton Carroll is not only a man out of place (originally from North Carolina) but also out of time. His solo albums are rooted firmly in folk tradition, his voice deep from the past, yet his songs are relevant to any time. Barton played live on Audioasis joined by Built to Spill guitarist Jim Roth.
