Live Video: Holy Fuck

Holy Fuck! Noise upon noise, wires upon wires, dance beats upon dance beats – and a dinner knife traversing a slide guitar? Yep, that’s how the unconventional Canadian electronica gang Holy Fuck rolls when performing songs off their new album, Congrats, which magnifies their noise-enthusiast, gear-gushing synth rock manipulations. Even after hibernating since their 2010 release, Latin, the twelve-year-old project hasn’t lostRead more…

Live Video: Tacocat

One of Seattle’s most notable feminist impetuses is the outfit Tacocat.

Live Video: Twin Peaks

If the Rolling Stones had started their career in 2014 Chicago, they might have been called Twin Peaks.

Live Video: David Bazan

Our long-time musician friend, David Bazan, stopped by the KEXP studios the other day to play synth-ethereal songs off his new album, Blanco, which he so Bazanly described before the session as “basically electronic music with sadness.” No surprise there!

Live Video: Moderat

Berlin-trio Moderat, featuring the combined forces of the German electronic projects Apparat and Modeselektor, stopped by KEXP’s studio to showcase a few of their new bangers from their 2016 release, III. The “bored-with-current electronic-music-back-in-the-day” musicians put out a quick caveat that they were playing a more improvised set, which actually made for a more captivating experience –Read more…
