There’s a precision to the songwriting of Soccer Mommy’s Sophie Allison — her songs are vivid, moving snapshots executed with silvery guitar licks and deceptively brilliant choruses. Joining Cheryl Waters in the KEXP Live Room, Allison and her bandmates perform four songs off her studio debut LP, Clean. Recorded 04/05/2018.
1. Your Dog
4. Scorpio Rising
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.
