Ahead of his second album, Full Circle Nightmare, Kyle Craft’s swampy storytelling got sharper and it shows all over the Louisiana songwriter’s newest record. Melding golden-toned rock with a glammy sneer, Craft and his band join Cheryl Waters in the KEXP Live Room for four Full Circle Nightmare songs. Recorded 01/31/2018.
1. Heartbreak Junky
2. Fever Dream Girl
3. The Rager
4. Exile Rag
Freedom, Damon McMahon’s fifth album as Amen Dunes, feels like a beautiful dream — its silvery songwriting glide across bold sonic rock landscapes.
On their third album, Garbage People, Wimps remain as raucous, sardonic, and incisive as ever.
Spiky and smooth, the kinetic guitar playing of Bombino weaves through the buoyant rhythms that his band produces.
