If Waxwing broke up in 2003, then what are they doing playing live at KEXP? Let’s put this query aside for now –- for, why question the good fortune of hearing the Seattle band, which first got together in 1996, play again? Waxwing, who last released an album in 2002 (but whose members have released a myriad of other projects), are tight, dramatic, and lyrically stunning. They’re a mix between a punk rock band and ballad singers. But, above all, they embody that mid-'90s Seattle musical spirit. After all these years, they most certainty still got it, and we’re happy they brought it back for us live in the KEXP studio on Audioasis. Watch their reunion set here:

Live Video: Wampire

Visually, Wampire are a throwback to the 70’s: button-downs with big collars opened at the top, sunglasses, long and wavy hair. If you didn’t know what year it was, you might think the Doobie Brothers just stepped out of the Mystery Mobile. Musically, Wampire proves worthy of their indie buzz. Th...
