Live Video: Ages and Ages

Here’s a killer word for your next round of Scrabble: Divisionary. You can thank delightful Portland band Ages and Ages for that knock out; it’s the title of their second album. What does it mean? Splice together “division” and “visionary” and you can explain how even the best intentions sometimes result in the opposite effect. Listen to theirRead more...

Live Video: Quantic

Sometimes life’s journeys lead us back home matter how far away we travel. It’s been nearly eight years since U.K. born producer Will Holland released a solo album as Quantic. He was certainly busy the whole time, producing records, collaborating with Alice Russell, and most significantly, moving to Colombia, where he immersed himself into LatinRead more...

Live Video: Woods

It took ten long years, but eight amazing albums later, KEXP finally got Brooklyn band Woods in our studio. Their most recent release, With Light and With Love, is their strongest yet: the result of two years of writing, and their first-ever time recording in an actual studio. After years of home recording, frontman JeremyRead more...

Live Video: Spoon

Twenty-plus years into a varied and universally celebrated career, Spoon can still surprise and delight us. They Want My Soul, the Austin-based band’s follow-up to 2010′s Transference, has all the Spoon hallmarks you expect: the fiery voice of frontman Britt Daniel, the wry if sometimes bittersweet lyrics, and a punchy pop-influenced sound that’s immediately identifiable.Read more...

Live Video: Lee Fields and the Expressions

It’s only fitting that he’s on a record label called Truth & Soul Records, because that’s exactly the kind of music the legendary Lee Fields creates. The 63-year-old music veteran is still going strong after 43 years in the business, and his most recent release, Emma Jean, is just as vital as ever. “I waitedRead more...

Live Video: Hundred Waters

The latest release from Hundred Waters is one of the biggest surprises to wash up on the musical shores this year. Two years ago, the Florida-based band became the first act to sign with Skrillex’s OWSLA record label, but they take his trademark EDM-sound to celestial heights on their latest release, The Moon Rang LikeRead more...

Live Video: Dean Wareham

If Dean Wareham‘s own name isn’t familiar, his previous projects most likely are. Galaxie 500 and Luna may never have quite reached the commercial success to match their critical acclaim, but both bands inspired a generation to follow of dream-pop wanderers and romantic rock dreamers. And both were favorites among KCMU and KEXP DJs andRead more...

Live Video: Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett may prefer the mundane, but that doesn’t mean we have to. In the songs on her debut album, The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas, really two early EPs mashed together, the young Australian singer-songwriter relates with hyperfocus the details of a day or of moments of average significance -- a failedRead more...
