It's difficult to think of a band that's had a bigger breakthrough in 2018 than IDLES, but then again, it's different to think about anything else when their furious and vulnerable songs pulverize speakers, venues, and ears in the way that they have all year. Performing four songs from their sophomore album Joy As An Act of Resistance, the Bristol quintet walk into the KEXP Live Room with John Richards and exit 30 minutes later with an instant classic KEXP session under their belts. Recorded 10/04/2018.
