The Spook School's music is certainly political -- written from the crucial voice of a trans person's perspective -- but its vital message has a razor-sharp catchiness and chiming dynamic that makes the Scottish group's songs soar with a stinging grace. Joining DJ Miss Ashley in the KEXP Live Room, the band played four songs from their latest album, Could It Be Different? Recorded 02/09/2018.
1. Less Than Perfect
3. Keep In Touch
4. Still Alive
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.
