While promoting his third album, Radius, smiling soul Allen Stone stopped by the new KEXP offices to grace us with his second in-studio performance. The Seattle singer-songwriter peddles in pure analog: there isn't a drop of electronic on the third album, and he brings the danceable retro of Leon Bridges or the Alabama Shakes with more unbridled, Christmas-morning-child enthusiasm than either of the two. We were lucky to catch him when we did, getting to witness an artist riiight in the middle of the transition from critical acclaim to household name. Enjoy the live set, and catch Stone when he returns to the Northwest in May for Sasquatch!
