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 “Easy Company | Interlude” by HOLLY from the 2014 album Maps and Lists on Outer Sunset Records.

HOLLY - Easy Company | Interlude (MP3)

El Paso born artist and former Aviettes member Holly Muñoz, a.k.a. HOLLY, left her job to pursue a solo career. Muñoz's risk paid off in the successfully crowdfunded album Maps and Lists. Muñoz even grabbed the attention of producer and musician John Vanderslice to work on the release. The album features sounds ranging from the drums to the glockenspiel. While Muñoz seems like a pretty straightforward person, her enigmatic lyricism stands out in "Easy Company | Interlude." The track, which stars Muñoz's precise vocals over precarious riffs and a steady beat, is both understated and catchy. Perhaps most compelling is her transition from a foot-tapping tune into what skirts the line between stripped down music and spoken word. Based in San Francisco, HOLLY will finish up her "45-city living room-backyard-church-record store" tour in Seattle. True to her ambitiousness, Muñoz created the record label Outer Sunset to support independent musicians. She is already recording a new album with John Vanderslice and plans on playing more shows in 2015.

Tune in to KEXP today at 3:00pm for a live performance from HOLLY! You can also catch her tonight for the last show of her tour at 8:30 at the Rendezvous with Marc Olsen and special guests. Join team HOLLY on Twitter and Facebook for more!
