Live Video: The Vaselines

For a band that’s distinctly Scottish, The Vaselines couldn’t be more “Northwest”, and now more so than ever. Formed by current members, Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee, the Glasgow group released only one album before breaking up in 1989. That might have been the end for their catchy, quirky, charmingly disaffected sound, but, as mostRead more…

Live Video: Ex Hex

All throughout her conversation with Stevie Zoom, Mary Timony kept mentioning how Ex Hex “just came together”. You’d be forgiven for thinking a band so fierce and tight could never be assembled so serendipitously, but when you’ve got a trio of D.C. punk lifers in the same room, there’s no other possible outcome. Timony, BetsyRead more…

Live Video: Museum of Love

Museum of Love‘s frontman Pat Mahoney has been killing it for so long you would have to think he has made a pact with the devil. As evident in this stunning KEXP session by his new project with DFA’s Dennis NcNany, a.k.a. Jee Day, the former LCD Soundsystem stickman and his pals fire out aRead more…

Live Video: Ben Watt and Bernard Butler

Words and photo by Charina Pitzel: They met, not exactly incongruously, at a sopping wet backyard gathering of a mutual friend in London, sharing shelter and cradling warm beers. The fact it took so long for the fortuitous occasion to take place is what makes it so surprising. Ben Watt (one half of Everything ButRead more…

Live Video: Meatbodies

Caught in a spin cycle of updated 70s punk and hard rock aesthetics, LA’s Meatbodies drop by KEXP shred out a hot plate of marinated melodies from their self-titled release on In the Red Records. Cooking up a rich mixture of fuzzed out genre-blurring jams and high strung vocals, this is a band that knowsRead more…

Live Video: White Lung

White Lung‘s frontwoman Mish Way is nothing less than a singular, commanding singer, but the ferocious spirit that fuels her performances is empowering, not intimidating. On the band’s latest album, Deep Fantasy, Way and guitarist Kenneth William, drummer Anne-Marie Vassiliou, and bassist Hether Fortune tackle a series of difficult subjects – drug addiction, dysmorphia, and theRead more…

Live Video: HAERTS

At KEXP, we like to brag a little bit that we were among the first radio stations to express undying love for HAERTS. After “Wings” dropped at the beginning of 2013 and we put it on repeat for weeks, we knew we had to grab them later in the year at CMJ. But just aRead more…

Live Video: Trampled By Turtles

There are two main takeaways from Trampled By Turtles‘ KEXP in-studio session last October: that these guys have serious technical chops and that they’ve got the songs to put them to use. The Duluth, Minnesota, quintet’s latest album, Wild Animals, features some of their most emotionally resonant songwriting to date, and when they stopped byRead more…
