Live Video: Dum Dum Girls

Dum Dum Girls are no fools. The NYC group combines fashionable urban chic with a deadly cool to a devastating effect, and they approach music the same way. On their third album and latest album, Too True (which we adoringly reviewed here), Dum Dum Girls mastermind Dee Dee Penny filters girl band pop through dreamyRead more...

Live Video: Golden Gardens

Seattle duo Golden Gardens aim to infultrate a meaningful part of your mind. The beauty of the band, however, is that it is not obvious which part of your psyche they have in their sights. It is a constant journey for you, the listener, to figure out what’s in their scope as you continue toRead more...

Live Video: Public Service Broadcasting

Don’t touch that dial! Public Service Broadcasting has a message for you! The London-based duo of J. Wilgoose, Esq., and Wrigglesworth are fond of filling their music with samples from public information films, archive footage and propaganda material, creating an amalgamation of the historical past and the contemporary era. Following their recently self-distributed a newRead more...

Live Video: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Recently, Alec Ounsworth, frontman of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, happened to be in the vicinity of the KEXP studio. He wasn’t scheduled, and we only learned he was in town the same day, but we grabbed him anyway, sat him down, and asked him to play a few songs on the Midday Show withRead more...

Live Video: Tacocat

It would be great to construct this write-up as a complete palindrome, but probably only Tacocat could pull that off! Instead, let it suffice that this Seattle four-piece is hella charming — from the new ice cream flavor coming out under their name all the way down to their latest album title, NVM, a nod toRead more...

Live Video: The Afghan Whigs

The boozy blues of obsession and regret never sounded so good... at least not in the last 16 years. It’s been that long since The Afghan Whigs released an album and its members turned their attention elsewhere. Yet, while other 90′s bands are now cashing in on their notoriety with 20- and 25-year anniversary reunionsRead more...

Live Video: Solids

For a two piece group, Solids never ceases to thrash around. The Montréal based band, comprised of Xavier Germain Poitras on guitar and Louis Guillemette on drums, already has quite a following. In 2010, Solids released an EP, Generic Dogs, and would later disseminate two 7″s, one titled Fog Friends b/w Blown Out and aRead more...

Live Video: Anna von Hausswolff

Swedish singer-songwriter Anna von Hausswolff‘s experimental performances continually captivate audiences and listeners alike, offering them extraordinary and sophisticated forms of aural solace. Her newest album, Ceremony, is an ominous yet poignant journey into grief and darkness.

Live Video: Neil Finn

It’s hard to believe that the album Dizzy Heights is only the third solo release from beloved singer/songwriter Neil Finn. From Split Enz to Crowded House to the Finn Brothers and his soundtrack work, the New Zealand icon hasn’t stopped making music for the past 30 years. “It’s confusing for the general public to trackRead more...
