A captivating live rendition of "Toilet Brushes," which is one of many cuts off the latest album from minimalist composer Nils Frahm, Spaces. The LP is out now on Erased Tapes. Enjoy!
Art-popper Julia Holter stopped by the KEXP studio recently and did an interview and a lovely performance of "In the Green Wild," "This is a True Heart," and "City Appearing" from her latest album Loud City Song, which is, in case you didn't know already, one of 2013's best. It is always interesting to see how songs such as Holter's are performed live.
Loud City Song is out now via Domino.
A session performance from UK post-punk outfit Savages, which comes courtesy of KEXP. The band performs a number of cuts from their new, debut full-length, Silence Yourself. Catch a review for the album below:
Canadian saxophonist Colin Stetson delivers another breathtaking performance for La Blogotheque, featuring two songs from his latest full-length album, New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light. Check a review for the album below:
Danish punk, post-punk, and noise rock act Iceage releases a session performance of one of my favorite tracks from their latest album, You're Nothing. Morals" is one of the most ballad-like tracks on the album, and it's the beautiful piano chords and steady march of the beat that help make it so.
This session performance of the track is both fierce and passionate, and brings a little more intensity than the album version, I think.

Death Grips' full set at the 1100 Warehouse a few weeks ago during the SXSW festivities. As you may already know, I was down in front for this, and it was intense as hell.

Video of producer / DJ Holly Herndon performing at the Boiler Room. It's not the most accessible Boiler Room set you'll see; it actually takes Holly about twelve minutes to present some semblance of a steady beat. However, it's still pretty awesome to see her perform the mind-bending strangeness of her debut album live.
