Listen to one-of-a-kind in-studio performances recorded live at KEXP. Recent guests include:|
Colleen Green - 5/14/2013
Garage-punk upstart Colleen Green recently rolled through the KEXP studio in support of her newest LP, "Sock it To me." Take some time to listen to her set of minimal, razor-sharp tunes, performed live on the Midday Show.
Os Mutantes - 5/14/2013
Venerated Brazilian psych-tropicalia pioneers Os Mutantes recently graced the KEXP studio with a crystal-clear set of new classics from their latest LP, "Fool Metal Jack," live on Wo Pop.
Spirit Family Reunion - 5/13/2013
NYC roots-folksters Spirit Family Reunion fill up the KEXP studio for a hollering, celebratory set of foot-stompers, live on Swingin' Doors.
Grenades - 5/12/2013
Seattle thrashers Grenades rip through a searing set of songs from their new LP, "Heaven is Empty," live on Seek and Destroy.
Kurt Vile - 5/12/2013
Philly native Kurt Vile returns to the KEXP studio with his excellent band, The Violators, for a live set of songs from his newest, "Wakin on a Pretty Daze." The band isn't afraid of establishing a vibe and then reveling in it for a long while, and each tune builds and thrives on this perfect tension between hazy, dissolute jamminess and laser-focused musical/emotional exposition. It's a hell of a thing they've done with their live sound, and well worth a listen, or a hundred.
Julia Massey & The Five Finger Discount - 5/11/2013
Local pop trio Julia Massey & The Five Finger Discount have a knack for the sunny and the upbeat; their songs sparkle with bright tones, up-tempo drum lines and feather-delicate vocal hooks. They recently stopped by the KEXP studio for a shimmering live performance on Audioasis.
Born Ruffians - 5/11/2013
Canadian indie pop outfit Born Ruffians recently dropped by the KEXP studio to showcase a number of bright, hook-laden songs from their newest album, "Birthmarks." Give a listen!
Haunted Horses - 5/11/2013
Seattle post-rockers Haunted Horses have constructed an incredible live sound for themselves. Guitars bleed into samples, which loop into beats, which chew into howling vocal lines. Each instrumental squawk is magnified and repeated until it becomes its own otherworldly beat, and the divides betwen signal and noise, melody and rhythm, and sampled sound and instrumental tone disintegrate. What's left behind is a vaguely menacing and oddly beautiful set of tunes. In short: it's all pretty great. Give a listen to their recent live set on Audioasis.
National, The - 5/9/2013
Brooklyn-based rock band The National plays a set that features songs from the record "Trouble Will Find Me" live on KEXP from The Cutting Room Studios in New York City.
Mary Lambert - 5/9/2013
Seattle singer-songwriter/spoken-word artist Mary Lambert garnered some well-earned attention for her vocal contributions to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's break-out album, "The Heist." She recently dropped by the KEXP studio to showcase some new songs, and to demonstrate that she deserves plenty of recognition in her own right. Check out her live set of delicate, emotionally-charged songs here.
Caitlin Rose - 5/8/2013
Nashville-based songwriter Caitlin Rose graces the KEXP airwaves with a live performance that features songs from her record “The Stand-In.”
