Live Video: Weaves

If Thao and the Get Down Stay Down and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs were related and they had a uniquely uncompromising third sibling it would be vocal-and-guitar-wailing Weaves.

Live Video: Ghosts I’ve Met

The acoustic, rainy-day ballads of Ghosts I’ve Met, fronted by Seattle’s Sam Watts, are minimal in structure, soothing in spirit, sotto voce in tone, and come with a heavy sense of hope and fleeting moments. Having just released a new body of songs for his 2016 album, Night Repairs, Watts continues to compose in a way that simultaneously makes you mindful ofRead more…

Live Video: Caveman

Brooklyn band Caveman continues to evolve on their third album, updating the harmonic indie-folk of 2011’s CoCo Beware and the expansive space-prog of their 2013 self-titled LP for a larger, more atmospheric, ’80s-steeped pop-rock sound. While the concept story behind Otero War is vaguely sci-fi, the songs traverse more human terrain lyrically, focusing on existentialRead more…

Live Video: Pure Bathing Culture

Somewhere between Beach House, the ’80s, and The War on Drugs exists Pure Bathing Culture, the dream pop duo from Portland. The big, floaty sound of the partnered bandmates stems from Sarah Versprille’s melodically echoing vocals and Daniel Hindman’s airily reverbed guitar work. Joined by drummer Brian Wright and bassist/keyboardist Zach Tillman, Pure Bathing Culture stopped by KEXP’sRead more…

Live Video: Thunderpussy

Without even an album under their earth-shaking name, Thunderpussy shred like no other outfit… and outfits they have aplenty. The Seattle four-piece bring their theatrical, sex-fueled, high-octane, bluesy rock show to the KEXP studio for an extended session, complete with “pussyfooting” dancers, live on the Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole.

Live Video: Wand

An integral part of the psychedelic garage rock renaissance of swirling out of LA, Wand have produced three solid albums in less than three years and melted minds with their fuzz-fueled bend of adventurous psych-, prog-, garage- and folk-rock.
