Live Video: Cheatahs

British band Cheatahs sped over to the Cutting Room Studios in NYC, all the way from London, to play a raw live set just for KEXP. Well, not exactly. Last month, the UK group, consisting of Dean Reid, James Wignall, Marc Raue, and Nathan Hewitt, made a quick 7-city jaunt in the U.S. to introduceRead more...

Live Video: Delorean

Delorean’s synth-heavy alternative dance music resonates like the clean whir of a fully-functioning flux capacitor. Typically, their albums contain influences ranging from punk rock to electronic music, giving Delorean their eclectic sound. Having dropped a new album, Apar, in Fall of 2013 on the New York label True Panther Sounds, Delorean’s style seems to beRead more...

Live Video: THUMPERS

THUMPERS — not only is the name itself indicative of their sound, but the preferred spelling is all in caps. “Every time people actually do it, I feel a bit bad”, confessed John Hamson Jr., one of the band’s two founders, in a recent interview with KEXP. But Hamson and his cohort Marcus Pepperell makeRead more...

Live Video: Throwing Muses

“Seriously? Another song?” Kristin Hersh, frontwoman for Throwing Muses, teased KEXP’s DJ El Toro (a.k.a. Kurt Reighley) in mock-exasperation during their in-studio session, “We are so old, Kurt -- why are you doing this?” The veteran alt-rock legends are doing it for their latest release, Purgatory/Paradise, their first new album in a decade, and theirRead more...

Live Video: The War on Drugs

Though the new album is called Lost in the Dream, The War on Drugs‘ Adam Granduciel seems like he’s just woken up from one. While it’s only the band’s third LP since forming nine years ago, Lost in the Dream is leaps and bounds ahead of its predecessors, as Granduciel transforms his oft-meandering ambience ofRead more...

Live Video: Fox and the Law

Part fresh-faced punks, part wise songwriters, Fox and the Law seem to always be creating expectations and then immediately defying them, dashing preconceptions as soon as their rich guitar riffs and vocals rife with sonic time bombs hit listeners’ ears. This Seattle four-piece, not even two years from their first record release, has received acclaimRead more...

Live Video: Pontiak

There’s another all-brother southern rock band who might not be filling big stadiums and singing about sex on fire but could tear the roof off any coliseum with their arena-sized riffs. Hailing from rural Virginia, the Carney brothers — Van, Jennings and Lain — have produced something like ten well-received albums filled with fuzzy, feedback-ladenRead more...

Live Video: Hunters

Where Brooklyn at? No, really. Where is Brooklyn, PA? Because that’s where the band Hunters calls home (not the more famous borough of New York City). Nevertheless, the four-piece Hunters incorporates many different influences in their music, from straight up rock and roll to a pinch of metal to a bit of pop. It’s almostRead more...

Live Video: KINS

Often touted in 2013 as one of the bands you should know, KINS are quickly becoming one of the bands you do know. The Brighton-based band’s well-received debut was several years in the making, starting from the original demos Australian transplant Thomas Savage brought with him from Melbourne, and grown more brooding, spacious and atmospheric,Read more...

Live Video: James Vincent McMorrow

Justin Vernon, James Blake, Thom Yorke, Pat Grossi — all artists whose voices soar happily in the upper register. Add to them James Vincent McMorrow. With his gorgeously produced new LP, Post Tropical, the Irish singer-songwriter left his folky debut in the dust, choosing instead horns, synths, and other lush pop instrumentation to bear hisRead more...
