Space Oddity
by We Are King
(1 play) | (0 fans)

Thank you David Bowie! “There were so many amazing Bowie compositions to choose from but Space Oddity has always been our favorite- it’s so visual; it has always felt like time travel in a song. It tells such a vivid and imaginative story of Major Tom’s trip through space and it was such a cool experience to reimagine what it’d be like on the voyage” – We Are KING. https://wearekingmusic.bandcamp.com/album/space-oddity BBE Music announces forthcoming David Bowie tribute album ‘Modern Love’ with first single ‘Space Oddity’ reinterpreted by Grammy-nominated twin sisters We Are KING. https://www.bbemusic.com/downloads/we-are-king-space-oddity/ Thank you for being here with us today. Thank you for the kind messages and birthday wishes yesterday and today. Be safe! Stay tuned for Larry Mizell, Jr. as he takes you through The Afternoon Show. xo

Mr. Motivator
(15 plays) | (0 fans)

During the pandemic, we all listened to great music to get us through each day. Over the summer, KEXP Afternoon Show listeners were inspired to get motivated by our wonderful life coaches, IDLES. Listeners submitted videos of themselves motivated by "Mr. Motivator". This is fun to watch! https://youtu.be/YkWBmUBqf_k

Press Gang
by TV Priest
(8 plays) | (0 fans)

New music from London's TV Priest. "‘Uppers’ is self-produced and sounds it, but in a good way. Ragged yet tight, sprawling yet focussed, it’s a singular vision of a disparate time. It rounds up most of the usual suspects of our Un-united Kingdom, the pop culture, the insularity, the lies on the side of a bus, but manages to breathe new life into those old tropes by sheer force of personality. “We’re better off uninformed” spits Charlie Drinkwater witheringly at one point, carrying the same ‘I can’t believe I still have to deal with this shit’ disgust of a young Nick Cave. One moment he is roaring uncomfortable truths, the next he is coming out with the sort of dark mumblings you might hear on a 3am nightbus. All the while, guitars drive and surge relentlessly." https://www.readdork.com/reviews/tv-priest-uppers 'Uppers' will be released February 5th. Available for pre-order here: https://tvpriest.bandcamp.com/album/uppers
