Khruangbin and Leon Bridges have announced their second collaborative EP -"Texas Moon", the follow-up to their previous collaboration, "Texas Sun." Texas Moon will be out February 18th, 2022 on Dead Oceans! Khruangbin said of the new EP: "Without joy, there can be no real perspective on sorrow. Without sunlight, all this rain keeps things from growing. How can you have the sun without the moon?" The band’s Laura Lee added: "It's like a short story. And it leaves room to continue having these stories together. It's not Khruangbin, it's not Leon, it's this world we created together." Enjoy this Live Video from Khruangbin's 2018 KEXP In-Studio, hosted by Cheryl Waters: https://bit.ly/3GAlxYK. https://khruangbin.bandcamp.com https://leonbridges.bandcamp.com/

This is one of two tracks from this album featuring Del the Funky Homosapien -- and a horn section loop sampled from "Theme to Modesty Blaise", a piece by British jazz musician John Dankworth.

The jazz and psych infused solo from a Hammond B-3 organ is quite possibly the crowning gem of Funkadelic keyboardist Bernie Worrell's impressive body of work.

Bradford Cox on the album: "When I first came up with this concept of the 'fading frontier,' I was looking around and thinking about technology and the Internet. Remember when we were young and there was this excitement about what was going to happen next? And now, honestly, do you really want to know what happens next? I've seen enough in my lifetime; the frontier has faded. If it gets more intense, we're just going to end up not ever leaving our houses. "I don't want to be critical of how people live their lives, but let's just say this: The 'fading frontier' idea was originally a more general thing about the music business and what I'm exposed to in that world. People have diminishing expectations now, it’s kind of sad and weird. It feels like an end of an era in this very melancholy way. It is a very 'fall of the Roman Empire' kind of thing, where it feels like there's not much left to do. That's an elegiac feeling." https://bit.ly/35JhNn7

Hold On
by Adele
(5 plays) | (0 fans)

Good morning, Wednesday! It's time for The Morning Show. --- "Hold On," is about moving forward with purpose. "I never questioned whether I'd made a bad decision," Adele said. "I never ever did, which I'm very grateful for. I never asked myself those questions. But it was just like, maybe it would've been better if I had just kept my mouth shut and carried on. Just in terms of hurting two people that I love most in the world." - https://bit.ly/3moykWs
