Have you ever heard of KEXP? It’s KEXP 90.3 FM Seattle KEXP.ORG!!!! It’s a public radio station in Seattle that broadcasts ALTERNATIVE and INDIE ROCK songs!!!!!!!!!!!!! Watch the channel in youtube.com https://www.youtube.com/user/kexpradio
They show live performances of ALTERNATIVE and INDIE ROCK BANDS!!!! I usually get into youtube.com and then go straight to KEXP to see the newest update. I watch the newest videos and sometimes the older posts also. But mostly I download the videos :p
I’ll post some of the video links here, my favorite ones, and you can enjoy the videos..
FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE! I LOVE THIS BAND! THIS SONG! AAAARGGHHH, I have no idea how many time I have been watching this video?!?!?! THOUGH it was posted like 5 years ago, I LOST COUNT! I was hoping that Howl and Shake It Out would be posted, but I couldn’t find both 😦
THE TEMPER TRAP! AAAAARGGHHH Sweet Disposition! I am crazy about this song.. The vocalist, Dougy Mandagi, HE IS INDONESIAN! and this is AUSTRALIAN band.. I am PROUD, more than proud of HIM! This song reminds me of my high school. There was one friend of mine, he used to bring a guitar to the class and he used to play this song a lot. I used to sing along with him.. hmmm what a good memory :’)
I LOVE Of Monsters and Men! They are originally from Iceland. Even KEXP invited this band more than once to perform. HAHAHA seems the music fans love it. OH, not only this song that I actually like. Which version of Little Talks do you like most? THERE ARE MORE… I think the combination of Nanna and Raggi voice is so cute hihihi
MOUNTAIN SOUND! LISTEN, ENJOY, YOU’LL LOVE IT! Well, I do.. HAHAHA this song is very playful and fun.
Who doesn’t love this British band, ARCTIC MONKEYS? Well, I do LOVE this sexy British band… Especially Alex :”) I found there were four videos of Arctic Monkeys on KEXP… WHERE ARE Crying Lightning and Fake Tales of San Francisco? Those are my most favorite songs 😦
The sound of this band reminds me of Denver… Well, because this where the band came from. HAHAHA I don’t listen to The Lumineers much, but I listen to this song many times :p
The XX… uuuh, more British band.. But this time the vocalist is A LADY… GREAAAT JOB!!
CHVRCHES… Hard to be pronounced .__. but don’t judge the band by its name because this song The Mother We Share was on the 100 billboard list. The vocalist is cute :3 she sounds like a little girl, but I think she looks like Gabrielle Aplin
Jake Bugg, ohhh he is such a cutie buggggg :p more British cutie hereeeee!!!! I love his voice, especially when he sings Kingpin, What Doesn’t Kill You and Simple As This (This song was featured in The Fault in Our Stars!!!) Watch him playing the guitar, he is just beyond good!
Phantogram, yeaaaah… the first time when I listened to this song, I thought it was broken.. NO, SILLY! It sounds just like it, and apparently I LOVE IT… hahaha and more of the songs here;
These three songs are my fav… which are yours?
oooohhhh PASSION PIT… ‘EVERYONE PUT YOUR HANDS UP!’ Yeah, I am putting my hands up here, in front of my laptop. I was so hysterical when I found this song on KEXP. Sounds A LOT different with the studio one, this one is more easy to listen, slow..
BAND OF HORSES, YEAH! No One’s Gonna Love You.. YES! ummm… I love the studio record one, though. But I LOVE THIS SONG! When I feel kindda down, I listen to this song very often. Sometimes, I even feel like I can connect to the lyric also. hahahahahahahahahaha No, kidding.. Yes, true…
This is the full performance of IRON & WINE… Where are Waitin’ For A Superman and Flightless Bird, American Mouth ?????? those are my fav songs 😦
‘Please Welcome, LOCAL NATIVES’ aaaaaaaargh *clapping like a retard* and WAIT, they were playing Breakers first?!?!?!? I LOVE YOU GUYS. Great mustache, Taylor. As charming as always. You remind me of my dad. You guys have the same thick mustaches there. hahahahah
Oh, I can’t forget to post this one video. HUUUURAH, I love this song EVER SO MUCH!
Wait, is that SILVERSUN PICKUPS???????? WAIT, is this The Pit? WOOOWWW, sounds a lot different from the original song. I couldn’t recognize it, how come? I listen to this song EVERYDAY.
Oh, everytime I listen to Lykke Li is whenever I feel sad. AHAHAHAHA. DON’T CRY! Her voice can calm me down. So soft! And she is Swedish…… hmm, that’s why it is hard to kindda pronounce her name. And even her consonant is a little bit unequivocal, but that’s what I love about her voice.
GROUPLOVE! hahaha look at that spirit! and they are so funny… We can hear it in their songs. The songs are mostly FUN and PLAYFUL like Colours, Tongue Tied (This song was featured in Blended movie), Ways To Go, Shark Attack. These are the songs from the video. Or other song like Close Your Eyes and Count to Ten, Let Me In (This song was featured in the TFIOS)
There are just so many other bands on KEXP. I can’t post them all because that’d be like I’m writing a novel hahaha.. So, you can find your own fav musician here! Like The Heavy, Beach Fossils, Spoon, The Cave Singers, and other local bands.
NOT only the local musician from the US, there are British musicians like that Arctic Monkeys, Jake Bugg. And there is a JAPANESE musician like Shugo Tokumaru he is Japanese singer-songwriter who debuted in the US since 2004.
So, WELLL…. ENJOY 🙂
