This Saturday, October 15th, KEXP presents the seventh annual Reykjavik Calling at Neumos. Just like previous years, we'll be bringing you an evening with some of the best musicians and bands emerging from Seattle and Iceland... for FREE!
All the way from Reykjavik, we welcome post-punk project Fufanu. Frontman Kaktus Einarsson always brings an exuberant performance -- he surely learned well from his father, Einar Örn of The Sugarcubes and Ghostdigital. They released their debut full-length, Few More Days To Go, late last year.
This year's hometown representatives include long-running local quartet Kinski, once described by NME as "Sabbath in a washing machine during a power surge." Last year, the band released 7 (or 8), their seventh album... or maybe eighth (wink!), via Kill Rock Stars.
Electropop duo NAVVI will bring their dark, ethereal sound to the stage. After a handful of singles and an EP, they unleashed their debut full-length earlier this year, Omni. (Check out a full-length review here.)
Admission to Seattle’s Reykjavik Calling is 21+ and FREE to the public until capacity is reached. Doors open at 8:00 PM. For more information, click here.
Check out some of the KEXP DJ’s favorite artists from the Pacific Northwest and around the world on-the-go. KEXP’s Music That Matters weekly podcast brings you an exclusive mix of new music from the world’s best independent artists.
Okay, fine - as someone pointed out on Facebook, we can't technically call it a "First Annual" if it has not occurred in previous years, but we're hoping this will be the first of others to come, so join us this Saturday, October 22nd for our inaugural (how's that?) KEXP Record Fair!
Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part of our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today’s song, featured on the Mo...
