Live Video: Mammút

In the microcosm of Iceland’s music scene, where bands tend to germinate, blossom and wither as if viewed on time-lapse, the young twenty-somethings of Mammút might be seen as practically prehistoric. The five members literally grew up together during their decade as one of Iceland’s most critically acclaimed bands and, with the release of River’sRead more…

Immigrant Songs: Kultur Shock

There are many paths that lead one to emigrate and there are many roads to becoming a musician. When you combine the two, you often find a unique beast that exists in between dimensions.

Live Video: Enchanted Hunters

Dream-pop quartet Enchanted Hunters was formed in Gdańsk, in north Poland, by Małgorzata Penkalla. What originally started as a solo project truly flourished with the addition of new band members: in 2012, they released their debut Peoria, followed by the Little Crushes EP last year.

Live Video: Django Django

A far cry from the “bedroom setup” they used to record their debut album, which took the world by storm in 2011, Django Django recently released the studio recorded Born Under Saturn, with a more confident and much bigger sound. The London four-piece didn’t let fame or external pressures influence the new material, and each member actively collaborated in the creative process,Read more…

Live Video: Paul Weller

We were excited when we heard legendary singer/songwriter Paul Weller would stop by the KEXP studios for an acoustic session, but little did we know, he’d be bringing his five-piece band with him for this very special unplugged set. The intimate performance spotlighted his twelfth solo release Saturns Pattern, as well as old favorites fromRead more…

Live Video: Lautari

There is something both completely Polish and non-Polish about Lautari, the band featured this week in our series of Polish bands KEXP recorded while at the OFF Festival in Katowice. The award-winning ethno-jazz quartet, whose members hail from central and southern Poland, draw their name from the wandering Romainian musicians, or Gypsies, of the mid-1800’s.Read more…

Live Video: Mac McCaughan + The Non-Believers

Even if you don’t know Mac McCaughan, you still know Mac McCaughan. Whether fronting indie-rock A-list bands like Superchunk and Portastatic, or running the wildly influential Merge records (home of recent KEXP guests Destroyer and Telekinesis), the veteran musician has had an omnipresent effect on the last 25 years of independent music, although the downRead more…

Live Video: Israel Nash – LA Lately

It’s a song we’ve recently featured as a podcast and one that’s gorgeously captured on their new LP, but to hear Israel Nash perform “LA Lately” live is like visiting the galaxy rather than viewing it from afar. This summer, KEXP caught up to the Dripping Springs, Texas-based singer-songwriter at Pickathon and recorded him andRead more…
