  • What a week Cut Copy has had: not only were they live on The Morning Show on KEXP from The Cutting Room Studios NYC, but the next day, they were on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon! Watch them perform the track “We Are Explorers” from their most recent release Free Your Mind below. [Pitchfork]


  • In the music video for the track “What Goes Boom”, The Pixies share the answer: guitarist Joey Santiago. Watch the “explosive” (heh) video below: [Consequence of Sound]

  • Congratulations to our friends at Sub Pop on their latest signing, long-time KEXP faves, The Notwist! The German electronic trio will be releasing their album Close to the Glass on February 25th -- sample a track from the forthcoming album below: [Pitchfork]

  • If you’ve ever wanted to watch J Mascis play an R&B radio-hit, boy, do we have a video for you. Watch the Dinosaur Jr. frontman team up with Fred Armisen (of IFC TV show Portlandia) to cover the TLC song “Waterfalls,” with assistance from Seattle’s own Michael Lerner of Telekinesis and Leigh Nash of Sixpence None the Richer, ‘cause, sure, why not? [Pitchfork]

  • Have you watched the amazing interactive video for The Queens of the Stone Age‘s “The Vampyre Of Time And Memory”? If not, get creeped out here. If you have, get behind the scenes with video creators The Creators Project.
