We could think of no better band to close out the live room at KEXP’s Dexter and Denny studio than legendary shoegazers Ride. In celebration of the 25th anniversary of their landmark debut Nowhere, the UK quartet reunited for a worldwide tour. We captured a stunning acoustic session from founding frontmen Andy Bell and Mark Gardener from Katowice, Poland during OFF Festival (watch here), and this time, rhythm section Laurence “Loz” Colbert and Steve Queralt were along for the (no pun intended) ride. In memory of our former live in-studio space, the band treated listeners to an epic six-song session, ranging from the sonic explosion of “Seagull” to the tender ballad “In a Different Place.” KEXP ourselves are now “in a different place,” but we look back on this room, and this session, with enormous fondness.
