Midnight In A Perfect World: Saint Etienne


Influential British trio and longtime KEXP favorites Saint Etienne released a wonderful cover of Neil Young’s song “Only Love Can Break Your Heart” as their breakout debut single nearly 30 years ago, and they’re still going strong today. With each new release, they continue to find ways to tweak and perfect their sophisticated blend of contemporary dance-pop with psych-pop, glam-rock, and disco nostalgia. Earlier this year they released their 9th studio album, Home Counties, to continued critical acclaim. Their exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a playful and groovy set that keeps things fun and kinetic throughout while breezing through some throwback gems, new remixes of old favorites, and a few contemporary dancefloor burners.
