KCRW’s Friday night showcase kicks off with Willy Mason who has had some notable guest spots recently (Chemical Brothers/ Lianne La Havas) and returns with a new solo album later this year.
Also on the bill are Colombian-based DJ Quantic and British singer Alice Russell, who have joined forces for a fantastic new album already enjoying a lot of KCRW airplay.
Headliners The Temper Trap will be letting us know what we have to look forward to when they release their new album in June. Expect to hear lots of new songs that night. But who could forget about the song that launched them to fame.
Another one of my faves:
Avant-pop quartet Clock Opera and UK’s Crystal Fighters, who bring an eclectic mix of acoustic guitars and banging beats, round out the bill.
