Sunday Afternoon
by The True Loves
(39 plays) | (0 fans)

A brand new song from the Seattle eight piece! Guitarist Jimmy James recently told American Songwriter about the process of recording, the band was able to write and record their latest LP prior to the 2020 COVID-19 shutdowns. The members didn’t know it at the time, but recording the new record was one of the last opportunities for some time they’d have to be in a room to work out the parts. Check out the full interview with Jimmy James here: https://americansongwriter.com/sunday-afternoon-the-true-loves-album-interview/ And then head over to the KEXP YouTube channel for an exclusive intimate performance live at The Little London Plane during Upstream Music Fest in 2018: https://youtu.be/I2njMBxlnmM

The Disruptor Suite
by I Self Devine
(5 plays) | (0 fans)

Minneapolis musician and community organizer, I Self Devine talked to Gabriel on Sound & Vision last summer, discussing his 2018 collaborative project 'Dismembered & Unarmed' as well as his philosophies around community organizing, learning and building off past movements, and doing the internal work. “When it's time for me to transition into the spirit world, I want to be very light, meaning that I've handled all of my issues and I've done my work. What do they say? ‘What happened to you wasn’t your fault, but how you handle it is.’ I have a responsibility to ensure that as an organizer, I'm not a caricature of myself or of what it is that we're doing. I’m grounded in my teachings." https://www.kexp.org/podcasts/sound-vision/2020/6/19/i-self-devine-collective-trauma-and-community-organizing/
