Great Divide
by Mr. Gnome
(2 plays) | (0 fans)

“The Day You Flew Away” is Mr. Gnome’s first full-length album to arrive since 2014′s “The Heart Of A Dark Star.” The double album includes 26 songs which draw inspiration from a jarring series of events: the unexpected death of Nicole Barille’s father in late 2017 and, two weeks after the tragic event, the discovery that Barille was pregnant. More deaths occurred--Barille's cousin and Sam Meister's brother. “You never understand what other people are going through with loss until you go through it yourself,” said Barille. “There’s no road map. “It’s a really hard process. I think a lot of people lose themselves when they lose other people.”: https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2020/07/mr-gnomes-upcoming-album-finds-light-in-grief.html

My Silver Lining
by First Aid Kit
(115 plays) | (0 fans)

"The title of this traveling song comes from the English metaphor for optimism, "every cloud has a silver lining." The tune finds the Swedish Söderberg sisters contemplating life on the road as a mixed blessing, as they wake up one morning in a hotel room with no idea, "who or what or where I am." However, they add that there's always something good to balance out the bad." - https://bit.ly/3oeO6BU

Elle tweets: turning on @kexp to hear @julienrbaker on @loserboy show was just everything I needed today... -- New music by Julien Baker, who said of this song, "Put most simply, I think that “Faith Healer” is a song about vices, both the obvious and the more insidious ways that they show up in the human experience." - https://bit.ly/36xs07H

Julien Baker joined frontman Scott Hutchison for vocals on this song, and after his death in May 2018 she stated: "Been trying to find the right words but there are none; Frightened Rabbit’s music had a huge impact on my life, and what interaction we had was always marked by such kindness. My heart is broken for this loss and for those who loved and were close to Scott." - https://bit.ly/2I1dJ9Q

Goin' Broke For Christmas
by LUH

"“Two years ago, walking the back streets to avoid the sprawling Christmas markets of Manchester city center, Ebony spoke to me in a playful lament “We are really going broke for Christmas this year”. We laughed and thought this could be the title for a satirical christmas song; for every year my Dad would say to me “Why don’t you write a Christmas song, perhaps then you will make some money!'" - https://bit.ly/2JjM0SB

Do You Realize??
by The Flaming Lips
(194 plays) | (3 fans)

John, Sitting here listening to Do You Realize and the tears are starting. My 82 year old brother-in-law died on Sunday, the same day my 93 year old mother-in-law fell and broke her hip. Due to her age, dementia, and other health conditions, surgery is not possible, so basically it’s a palliative death watch. We can’t visit her because of Covid restrictions. So this song, which is I play when the grief of loss overcomes me, is very appropriate for this morning. Thanks for being there. Thank you KEXP. I am not alone. Vince -- By request! Wayne Coyne told NME in 2013 that he considers this song to be his proudest moment. He explained: "A part of you makes it and you don't really think that much of it. Then someone comes up and says, 'we used that song at my mother's funeral'. You can say it's just a dumb song, or you can say, 'I understand.'" - https://bit.ly/3fY82pT
