Live Video: Shabazz Palaces

Shabazz Palaces sound like no one else. Whether you call it “sci-fi”, “way-out”, “weirdo” or even “planetarium” rap, the Seattle duo’s music might as well be in outer space considering how far off they sound from their contemporaries. But it’s not like they don’t want anyone else to follow. In its eighteen songs divided intoRead more...

For those lamenting beloved NYC band The Walkmen’s indefinite hiatus, rejoice in the band’s bassist Peter Matthew Bauer‘s solo album, Liberation!.

Live Video: Shakey Graves

We’ve recorded him several times in the woods, but for his first in-studio at KEXP, Shakey Graves shook the dust off (unfortunately, on our floor) for a rowdy set of blues fueled rock live on the Morning Show. Sure, it was early for Alejandro Rose-Garcia and his co-producer and collaborator Chris Boosahda but damn ifRead more...

Live Video: Broken Bells

It’s hard to imagine a better indie pop dream team than this – a multi-Grammy winning producer Danger Mouse (a.k.a. Brian Burton) and a beloved singer-songwriter James Mercer (of the Shins), each responsible for some of the most infectious songs you’ve heard in the past ten years, joining to create blissful music together. Unsurprisingly, theirRead more...

Live Video: Cloud Nothings

When it comes to songwriting, Cloud Nothings frontman Dylan Baldi has a solid plan. “I think about trying to getting better,” Baldi explains to DJ Cheryl Waters, adding with a laugh, “I don’t want to get worse!” It’s a technique that is clearly working out for for the young Cleveland-based musician.

Live Video: Wye Oak

It took losing her voice for Wye Oak to rediscover theirs. On the heels of their successful previous album, Civilian, the Baltimore duo were playing arenas, opening for acts like The National and The Decemberists. And then, sadly, frontwoman Jenn Wasner developed vocal-cord nodules, and under doctor’s orders, was forced to stop singing. The health-inducedRead more...

Live Video: Luluc

When Aaron Dessner of The National hands you the keys to his recording studio, you don’t say no. That’s exactly what happened when Australian indie-folk duo Luluc relocated to Brooklyn to record their second album, Passerby, out now on Sub Pop Records. The duo of Zoë Randell and Steve Hassett had been slowly gaining word-of-mouthRead more...

Live Video: Foxygen

It had been almost a year to the day when Sam France of Foxygen fell off stage, canceling their 2013 tour just as it was getting started, but now he and songwriting partner Jonathan Rado are back with a vengeance... a glittery, glammy vengeance.
