by Yuno
(15 plays) | (0 fans)

Despite being stuck in his bedroom in the city of Jacksonville, Yuno's pedigree is diverse. His parents are from the UK, and of Jamaican descent, and his musical upbringing involved a wide array of discovery, mainly as a result of being part of his local skateboarding subculture. That's what got him into music: hanging out with friends at their now abandoned mall, going to the skate shop, playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater video games, watching skate videos, and listening to all the music featured therein.: https://yvno.bandcamp.com/album/moodie Talented Sub Pop artist Yuno performed live in the KEXP studio in August 2018. He played this track for us! Watch the full session here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55A5dYet8Zo

More Than This
by Roxy Music
(72 plays) | (0 fans)

Written by lead singer Bryan Ferry, this song is about a love affair that fell apart. Asked in 2014 why the song endures, Ferry replied, "For some reason, there's something in the combination of the melody and the lyric that works for people." -- In America, this song got some traction when it featured in Sofia Coppola's 2003 film Lost In Translation in a scene where Bill Murray sings it in a Tokyo karaoke bar.
