Feel You
by My Morning Jacket
(8 plays) | (0 fans)

"Although they were written about the dissolution of a romantic relationship and recorded half a decade before the COVID-19 pandemic, the best moments on 'The Waterfall II' give sonic life to the same kinds of longing felt during these months of isolation. “All I want to do is feel you” goes the chorus of "Feel You", a piano ballad augmented by spiraling guitar licks that heighten the craving for connections you can’t have." https://bit.ly/32iF3Yu Cheryl picked this poignant song for The Weekly Mix podcast last month: https://www.kexp.org/podcasts/weekly-mix/2020/8/14/weekly-mix-vol-733-big-feelings/

New New Order - their first new material in five years! “In tough times we wanted to reach out with a new song,” Bernard Sumner said in a statement. “We can’t play live for a while, but music is still something we can all share together. We hope you enjoy it… until we meet again.” On October 2nd, the band will release a comprehensive box set of their second album, Power, Corruption and Lies. In conjunction, they will also individually reissue the four 12-inch singles that came out around Power, Corruption and Lies for tracks that didn’t make the album, including “Blue Monday,” “Confusion,” “Thieves Like Us” and “Murder.” https://bit.ly/3k3pwSq

This House Got Ghosts

Old 97’s released twelve songs on 'Twelfth', their 12th studio album, last month. The band noted that the recording sessions in Nashville started on the night of a deadly tornado outbreak and right before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Lead vocalist and primary songwriter Rhett Miller marks five years of sobriety this summer. Miller chatted with Rolling Stone about the new album and his sobriety: https://bit.ly/3mcKujs

"After another brief interlude produced by Cut Chemist, a pair of old-school legends, Percy P and Big Daddy Kane, step up to the mic on the very nice "A Day at the Races". The bassline is absolutely smokin', and Cut Chemist lifts a tight sample from the legendary David Axelrod. Big Daddy Kane steals the lyrical spotlight as he declares that he's still "Gucci dressin'" and warns that "you out of your league like Jordan in baseball". It should also be noted that, sandwiched between Kane and Percy P, Charlie 2na steps up his game and remarkably holds his own. It's no secret that Charlie's the lyrical glue that holds Jurassic together, but he really shows improvement on this album." Pitchfork's album review starts with: "ny dismiss Jurassic 5 as suburban hip-hoppers who merely exploit the ever-fashionable old-school vibe. And it's true: their style does borrow heavily from the genre's pioneers. But one thing I've always admired about the group is that, despite their success in the mainstream, they've continued to adhere to underground values. Their audience may drive SUV's and worry about SAT's, but J5 themselves came together at the Good Life, a true-skool cafe that, for years, served as the epicenter of LA hip-hop. Naturally, their pedigree doesn't excuse their recent falloff, but it at least lends them more authenticity than a lot of other underground groups."

The Scoop

"Andrew here, longtime supporter of your station and science teacher at Shorewood HS in Shoreline WA. My family has been loving your commitment to music and community and peace and justice - especially since the #$@& hit the fan in March 2020. I just wanted to share that I have been cranking KEXP at 11:15am and 1:30pm everyday when my students log in to Zoom for their remote Physics class. It’s been fun to to see them dance around on the screen when they enter. A little bit of fun to make this distance learning experiment more palatable. I would like to request anything by the Beastie Boys (classroom appropriate) to be playing at 11:15 or 1:30 tomorrow or Friday." Keep those kids dancing! <3

Slow It Goes
by Eyelids

CLTure said "over the course of three full-length albums and seven EPs and singles since their formation six years ago, Portland’s Eyelids have proven to be power pop masters. The members of Eyelids are indie rock royalty. Consisting of musicians who share, or have shared, the studio and stage with The Decemberists, Guided by Voices, Elliott Smith, Quasi, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks and many more, this talented group has logged plenty of time in music’s major leagues."
