Damon McMahon's first single in three years, teaming up with Sleaford Mods -- who called the track "fire as fuck" on Instagram! 'Co-produced by Ariel Rechtshaid, ‘Feel Nothing’ features the hallmarks of Amen Dunes’ soaring indie rock, punctuated by psychedelic synths and airy piano chords – the former courtesy of frequent collaborator Panoram.'

Fell On Black Days
by Soundgarden
(23 plays) | (0 fans)

Chris Cornell on the lyrics: "Fell on Black Days" was like this ongoing fear I've had for years ... It's a feeling that everyone gets. You're happy with your life, everything's going well, things are exciting—when all of a sudden you realize you're unhappy in the extreme, to the point of being really, really scared. There's no particular event you can pin the feeling down to, it's just that you realize one day that everything in your life is [bleeped]!"

Seattle's own True Loves just played the Woodland Park Zoo with Smokey Brights on Tuesday! Seattle-based funk & soul group The True Loves perform live in the KEXP studio back in 2017. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/TD2hNsY6G7E "Listening to the abundant sounds of The True Loves, is like walking down a favorite neighborhood street, slapping-five with friends, checking up with clerks in their stores, admiring your own dark sun-glassed face in their windows, ducking under flowerpots and smelling the familiar smells of your most cherished locale. The band is its own block party." https://truelovesband.bandcamp.com/music

by Lord Huron

KEXP's Jasmine Albertson reviewed the 2018 Lord Huron album: 'Behind all this opulence, Vide Noir feels far more intimate than Lord Huron’s previous releases. Rather than staring out into a dusty rural plane, ready for adventure, frontman Ben Schneider is looking up to the cosmos, asking for help. The lyricism on the album is consistent in its heartache and melancholy, so consistent one could call it a concept album revolving around the girl that got away.' Cheryl Waters hosted Lord Huron Live in the KEXP Studio back in April 2015: https://youtu.be/UmcXXr6OD2s

Going out to Isla in Rhode Island!

Thank you always for the music -Nathan and Isla' One of the two singles from Film School‘s upcoming full length album, 'We Weren’t Here', out September 24th. “Isla” is perfect, washed out, glimmering pool side hazy ease. https://filmschoolmusic.bandcamp.com/

Time Between
by bear in heaven
(60 plays) | (0 fans)

From a review on the KEXP web site: "How to describe the sound of Bear in Heaven? Anthemic, electric, ethereal, moody, psychedelic, somewhat gothy, somewhat dancy... none of these classifiers quite hit the nail on the head. Regardless, the group, borne out of Athens, Georgia’s Jon Philpot and developed into a tight Brooklyn-based four-piece, is ready for a much wider audience. Like early Yeasayer, with whom they share more than just a kinship, Bear in Heaven has built inroads with their critically acclaimed, independently released albums (both on Hometapes) and are poised for greater success."

Gold Past Life
by Fruit Bats

Fruit Bats will be at the Showbox on March 19, 2022! http://www.fruitbatsmusic.com/ The Fruit Bats' Eric D Johnson explains the title, telling KEXP it “refers to nostalgia and the notion of some sort of past that's gilded in your mind. You know, thinking of the past in a romanticized way that might not actually be the reality.” Cheryl Waters selected this track as KEXP's Song of the Day on July 25 2019 -- find a link to download the track and read our exclusive interview with Eric D Johnson. https://www.kexp.org/podcasts/song-of-the-day/2019/7/25/fruit-bats-gold-past-life/

Dancing Queen
(13 plays) | (0 fans)

Released on this date in 1976! Written by ABBA members Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, this absolutely perfect track drew inspiration from the 1974 George McCrae disco hit "Rock Your Baby," and from the drumming on the 1972 album Gumbo by Dr. John. -- ABBA performed this song on June 18, 1976 at a televised tribute to Queen Silvia and King Gustaf XVI of Sweden, who were married the next day. You can watch this historic performance thanks to the magic of the You Tubes: https://youtu.be/C8GXQD8DNoQ

Everything Now
by Arcade Fire

It's a gorgeous day to dance a little in Seattle -- and Arcade Fire have been working on a new album during quarantine! 'Needless to say, the writing has intensified, and the work is flowing out... It has never felt more essential, spiritual and irreplaceable...a church that lives in the air between the source and your ears... I just want you to know, dear reader, that you aren’t forgotten. The world is experiencing incredible suffering and uncertainty. I already know people who have been sick and died, and hope that you and those you love have been spared.'

Evie's here every Sunday from 3PM-6PM Pacific; thank you to DJ Miss Ashley for another great Afternoon Show. Small Black is on tour now -- they just played the Tractor Tavern in Seattle last night! Small Black have said that living together throughout most of their writing/recording process has established, "a closeness that has allowed them to achieve easy creativity and find the smoky intersection of considered & vulnerable songwriting and loose, almost nonchalant ambience." https://smallblack.bandcamp.com
