She Blinded Me With Science
by Thomas Dolby
(7 plays) | (0 fans)

Hello KEXP, Thanks for all that you are doing to keep us sane this past year - you are so appreciated. I am a high school physics teacher in Shoreline WA (and supporter/listener of your station). Every day when students enter my Zoom class, I have KEXP playing in the background. It's a really nice intro. :-) Could you please tomorrow (Thurs 2/25), play "She Blinded me with Science" by Thomas Dolby, at either 8:51AM, 11:16AM or 1:31PM (that's when class starts and the radio is on) and give a shout out to Mr. Bagley's amazing physics students? Anything to bring a smile to a teenager's faces these days - they need all the positive encouragement they can get...] Keep on dishing! Andrew Bagley Physics Teacher Shorewood HS

Think Too Much
by Hannah Jadagu
(13 plays) | (0 fans)

Hannah Jadagu, an 18 year-old singer/songwriter from Mesquite, Texas. “‘Think Too Much’ is the only song that I’d written with the intent of putting it on an EP,” Jadagu says. “Sonically, I was challenging myself to make a song that was high energy, fun, and a ‘bop,’ as I like to call it. At the time, I remember listening to a lot of Dayglow, Jean Dawson, and Winnetka Bowling League, and thinking to myself, ‘These people are making such catchy and fun songs without even trying.’ Then I thought to myself, ‘You’re really thinking too much.’ I asked all my friends what they thought about ‘too much,’ compiled their responses, chose some fun chords and rhythms inspired by Snail Mail and Phoenix, and went to work.”

Deerhunter front man Bradford Cox has cited American novelist Dennis Cooper as an important lyrical influence. Cox explained to Q magazine November 2010 what draws him to Dennis Cooper's work: "When my dad heard Helicopter and I told him about the story that inspired it, he said it kept him up at night. I think most people can relate to the hopelessness of that song. Dennis Cooper's writings tend to haunt you most not when they are shocking or intense but when they have these moments of pastoral sadness that just radiate.

Flirted With You All My Life
by Bright Eyes
(3 plays) | (0 fans)

This cover of Vic Chesnutt’s “Flirted With You All My Life” was originally the B-side to the 7" “Persona Non Grata” but hasn’t been officially available online until now. “I had the pleasure of seeing Vic perform many times over the years and from a young age,” Conor Oberst said in a statement. “I can truly say he deeply changed my worldview and what it meant to write a really unique and thought provoking song. One of the greatest ever. Always missed. Here is our humble version of one of his best.”
