As KEXP celebrates its 50th anniversary, we're looking back at the last half-century of music. Each week in 2022, KEXP pays homage to a different year and our writers are commemorating with one song from that year that resonates with them.…
Music Director Don Yates shares brief insights on new and upcoming releases for KEXP's rotation, including this week's new releases from Bill Callahan, BROCKHAMPTON, Tom Skinner, and more.
Los Angeles duo Ruby Haunt have been steadily churning out sublime melancholic dream-pop and autumnal slowcore music since releasing their debut album Hurt in 2015.
For the past 20 years, we’ve partnered with BECU—a member-owned credit union—to strengthen our community of independent music listeners. That’s why we’re thrilled to team up once again on our latest collab: Live at KEXP Volume 10, featuring 19 tracks piled high and pressed on a double LP, celebrating 50 years of KEXP.
In celebration of our 50th Anniversary, KEXP counted down the Top Album of the last 50 years, as voted on by all of you! Our fall fundraising drive may be over, but you can still support listener-powered KEXP by making a donation today.
It’s KEXP’s 50th anniversary, and to celebrate we’re taking an in-depth look at each year of our history – from 1972 to 2022. All year long we’ll be bouncing around the timeline, pulling out the best music from a different year each week – both the songs we all know and love and music we might’ve missed the first time around. Tune in to hear spotlight features every Wednesday, and highlights from each year throughout the week. Listen live wherever you tune in, and use KEXP's Two-Week Streaming Archive to catch any spotlights you may have missed!
