Live Video: SOHN

It’s only appropriate that his debut album is titled Tremors, because this beautiful, intimate session from SOHN had us all aquiver. Born in South London as Christopher Taylor, he had an early interest in music, but it was the groundbreaking Radiohead release OK Computer that led him into electronic music.

Live Video: Gold & Youth

Vancouver/Toronto-based band Gold & Youth continue in the Canadian tradition of bands like Stars and Broken Social Scene, combining boy/girl vocals over danceable pop beats. Released on the iconic Arts & Crafts label last year, their debut full-length Beyond Wilderness captures ’80s-style synth beats with a noir atmosphere.

Live Video: Liars

Ain’t no lie: Los Angeles trio Liars wove a captivating web over us with their dark, atmospheric in-studio session. Entwined in a colorful skein of yarn, inspired by the cover for their latest release Mess, the long-running electro-punk band strung listeners along with their dark dance pop. The colored string is not unintentional: as formerRead more...

Live Video: Iska Dhaaf at KEXP’s Hood-to-Hood Broadcast

It’s difficult to imagine Iska Dhaaf as only a two-piece, even when they’re right in front of you. The sound of their full-bodied post-punk is supported by Benjamin Verdoes’ (Mt. St. Helen’s Vietnam Band) unique ability to simultaneously play the keyboard and drums. It takes a talented musician to keep a band on beat, butRead more...

Live Video: The Faint at KEXP’s Hood-to-Hood Broadcast

Set against the illuminated backdrop of the many pallets of Chrome Satan at the Hilliard’s Beer Taproom, The Faint, during their performance, looked like dance-punk dictators, rulers of some Mad Max dystopia in which beer’s more valuable than gold.

Live Video: Eagulls

Leeds band Eagulls know how to incorporate punk fuzz and poppy hooks into a hard-hitting blend of speedy percussion, chainsaw reverb, and, well, demonic possession. Notorious for their thoughts on the so-called ‘beach-bands’ out right now, Eagulls aren’t looking to make any long-time friends with acts that don’t take influence from Joy Division, The StoneRead more...

Live Video: Scott H. Biram

Between his bluegrass voice, genuine love for performance, and one-man-band resilience, there’s just something so authentic about Scott H. Biram. If that weren’t enough, in 2004, Biram was involved in a near-fatal car crash, requiring him to have his bones re-connected with metal rods and even necessitating a foot-and-a-half of his intestine to be removed.Read more...

Live Video: Milagres

“I’m sorry, I have to interrupt. My mind was just blown,” DJ Cheryl Waters revealed after Milagres opened their recent in-studio session at KEXP with “The Letterbomb.” With its funky drums and shifts between baritone and falsetto, it’s easy to see why Milagres’ music made her feel this way. In fact, while these indie-rock experimentersRead more...

Live Video: Rodrigo y Gabriela

For over twelve years now (not to mention the many years of hard-work they spent playing on the streets of Mexico City and Dublin to perfect their sound), guitar-wielders Rodrigo y Gabriela have been consistently cranking out classical improvisations, maintaining a steady sound while redefining what one can actually do with a guitar. Showing upRead more...
