Out This Week 1/21

2014 is off to a great start for new music! Highlights include the long-awaited sophomore release from LA band Warpaint. KEXP Music Director, Don Yates, declares it a “more subtle and minimalist take on the band’s brooding dream-pop, featuring a dark, atmospheric sound with swirling guitars and keyboards, prominent bass lines, hypnotic rhythms and ethereal harmonies.” Other highlights include the latest from local artist Damien Jurado (read an in-depth review here on the KEXP Blog), the latest from Scottish ambient rockers Mogwai, and a surprising new release from Bill Callahan, featuring dub versions of the songs from 2013’s Dream River.
