TEKE::TEKE is a 7 piece band featuring a Shinobue (traditional Japanese Bamboo flute), a Taisho Koto and a trombone alongside fuzzy guitars and a rhythm section to create a sound reminiscent of 1960’s – 70’s era psychedelic Japanese soundtracks, while remaining undeniably modern and punk. Their debut album is entitled ‘Shirushi’ (or ‘signs of great changes to come’). -- Check out a recent KEXP at Home performance with them: https://youtu.be/STyZ4iDBw9k

Did you know that Liza Minelli sang this song originally? Minelli recorded the song as the theme for Martin Scorcese's film, "New York, New York" in 1977, two years prior to Sinatra's recording. (and several years before Chan Marsahll's.)

HUSBANDS
by Savages

Lead singer Jehnny Beth described this taunting one night stand song's meaning to NME as being about, "the sense that we've very dispersed as people. We're becoming like smoke, almost: we're not touched by things anymore." ---- Savages closed their live session in the KEXP studio with "Husbands" in 2013.

There She Goes
by The La's
(169 plays) | (0 fans)

"There She Goes" is a song with one crazy story, so hang on. It was written by the Liverpool singer and guitarist Lee Mavers, and recorded by his band The La's. The La's released it on their only album, titled The La's. "There She Goes" was released as a single, not once, not twice, but four times! The first release scratched the UK Singles chart in 1988 at #51. The second release in 1990 was the peak, with #13 on the UK Singles and also charting in the US. The third release was in 1999, and it charted the UK Singles at #65. The fourth release was in 2008, on vinyl only for the song's 20th anniversary, and charted again at #181.
