Temple
by Thaoand the Get Down Stay Down
(71 plays) | (1 fan)

Listen to a conversation between Thao Nguyen and KEXP's Emily Fox about how the latest Thao & The Get Down Stay Down album is about coming out to her Vietnamese family and processing her family’s story of war: https://www.kexp.org/podcasts/sound-vision/2020/5/19/thao-get-down-stay-downs-new-album-addresses-vietnamese-heritage-and-trauma-war/ Live on KEXP at Home July 2020: https://youtu.be/BABnsYbzEI0 Isolated Tracks: "Temple": https://youtu.be/RQ5EvvUHWGw -- A temple is a place of worship and sanctuary. We spend our lives searching for temples where we can belong and be loved, but those spaces can also be a kind of confinement. Temple is an album that pushes open boundaries for a different kind of sanctuary, where you don’t have to whisper. https://thaoandthegetdownstaydown.bandcamp.com/album/temple

Sometimes
by Chrome Waves
(2 plays) | (0 fans)

Indianapolis foursome Chrome Waves have just announced the release of their Third LP, The Rain Will Cleanse, out in September via Transcending Records And Disorder Recordings. Of the first single "'Sometimes,' the band’s Jeff Wilson tells Brooklyn Vegan that he wrote it in 10-minutes, at “2am, a dozen cocktails into a writing session, I think this was the fourth demo I had finished that evening. It was honestly almost too easy to arrange and begged for a better melody than I personally could have given it. James [Benson] totally murdered the vocals on this song and it's the perfect first single for this album as it sets the vibe for what's to come." https://chromewaves.bandcamp.com/album/the-rain-will-cleanse
