Bonnaroo 2013: Thursday

Looking at the lineup of Bonnaroo over the past few years, it seems as if the organizers booked their roster by throwing everything at the wall and seeing what stuck. Well, this year, everything stuck. On the top two lines of the bill, there’s a Beatle, an Icelandic electronic music goddess, the guy who madeRead more...

Live Video: Django Django

Back in October, we took the first opportunity we had to bring Scottish group Django Django live on air.

While it’s hard to begrudge Alt-J their winning the Mercury Prize, many of us at KEXP were also rooting for another young U.K. group, Django Django. These London-based Scots have also created a stunning art-pop debut, though on their self-titled release, Django Django tend to favor warmer, more Americana and Eastern influences to Alt-J’s coolerRead more...
