Michelle Zauner's second album as Japanese Breakfast, 2017's Soft Sounds From Another Planet, may have a space-adjacent angle to many of its songs, but it's all a lens to an intimate, personal LP that cuts to the bone. Joining Cheryl Waters in the KEXP Live Room, Zauner, and her band discuss space and personal exploration alongside four Soft Sounds... songs. Recorded 02/15/2018.
1. Diving Woman
2. Road Head
3. The Body Is A Blade
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.
