Music from Jóhann Jóhannsson

A favorite of KEXP, Icelandic artist Jóhann Jóhannsson passed away on Friday, February 9th, in his Berlin apartment. The award-winning composer was 48-years-old. Revisit some of his KEXP sessions below:

With the American Contemporary Music Ensemble, recorded April 20, 2017
"Flight From The City" off his 2016 solo LP, Orphée
Live from Kex Hostel in Reykjavik during Iceland Airwaves 2011

Another International Clash Day has come and gone, but you can still check out our interviews with Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, James Fearnley of The Pogues, Penelope Houston of The Avengers, Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, Jon Wurster, Moby, and many more. And because The Clash was anti-racist, anti-fear, pro-solidarity, pro-unity, pro-inclusion, we have spotlights of local social justice organizations so you can get inspired and get involved!
