Live Video: múm at Iceland Airwaves 2013

Live Video: Yuck

London quartet Yuck left a big impression on us with their ‘90s-inspired sound of squalling guitar riffs combined with boy/girl vocals. Unfortunately, KEXP left an impression on frontman Max Bloom, too, when he accidentally leaned against a wall of wet paint... d’oh! Thankfully, a KEXP t-shirt looked great on him as he and his co-hortsRead more...

Live Video: Noah Gundersen

It’s a family affair for local artist Noah Gundersen. Accompanied by his sister, brother, and friends, the soft-spoken singer/songwriter performed a dynamic, yet delicate Morning Show session featuring tracks from his then-unreleased debut full-length, Ledges.
