Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today’s song, featured on The Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole, is “September” by St. Kilda from their self-titled self-released debut full-length.

St. Kilda - September (MP3)

If the voice behind Seattle's St. Kilda sounds familiar, you might be recognizing local singer/songwriter Joshua Morrison who first won us over in 2008 with his Nick-Drake-esque ballad "Home."

Since then, he's turned his attention to film soundtracks, and together with long-time collaborator Jeramy Koepping (Voyager One, Grand Hallway), they composed the score to the 2011 film The Off Hours. Another local luminary, Matthew Brown of Trespassers William and The Soft Hills, joined them for the soundtrack to the 2012 film Eden. By 2013, the now-solidified trio decided to bring their compositions from the screen to the streets by adding their atmospheric sound to Josh's folk songs.

Appropriately enough, St. Kilda just performed their album release show last night at the Northwest Film Forum. Follow them on Facebook to stay on top of future shows. St. Kilda are currently offering a full-album stream of their self-titled debut, which you can listen to below.
