From KCRW Blog Contributor Nassir Nassirzadeh:
There’s an indescribable charm about experiencing the early engagements of a band or artist from different parts of the world with a motley crew of young college music program directors and their grown up and somewhat jaded adult versions in the music industry congregating in one small and smelly NYC bar or basement in the middle of daylight.
As a …

Museum-Of-Love-

While James Murphy was the heart, soul, and face of LCD Soundsystem, drummer Pat Mahoney was it’s backbone.
Pounding the skins with metronomic precision for the group’s entire seven year run, Mahoney was the anchor of LCD’s muscular rhythm section.
Three and a half years removed from LCD Soundsystem’s final show at Madison Square Garden (immortalized in the film Shut Up And Play The Hits), Pat …

GA and Jason

These days especially, people seem to have a wide range of feelings about Kanye West, based on a life that bounces  from musical genius to celeb tabloid magnet and everything in between.
With his most recently album “Yeezus” he took his musical experimentation to the next level but, before that, there was “808s & Heartbreak”. His 4th studio album was conceived in the wake of …

Every week we do a tally of the most played songs on Morning Becomes Eclectic (which you will see if you follow MBE on Twitter or Facebook!) and a curious one showed up on last week’s list.

Crazy Good: Lucius Covers My Morning Jacket
I didn’t know much about the female-led indie pop quintet Lucius before coming across this cover a few weeks ago.
Then I stumbled across the band at ACL and was really impressed by their track “Until We Get There”.

It’s on their debut album “Wildewoman”, released nearly one year ago, and they put out the cover of My Morning Jacket’s …

It was about a year ago when I first heard and met James Bay in Los Angeles. His first EP, “The Dark of The Morning” really drew me to him.
In the song “Move Together”, James sings with a thoughtful, old soul and his lyrics are beautiful. So when you meet him, you are amazed that he is only 24 years old.
With a deepness and …

Boxed In: Artist You Should Know

Boxed In is the brain child of London-­based producer Oli Bayston.
A friend of mine at Nettwerk Records made the mistake of playing some album demos for me earlier this year, and I’ve been overly eager to share these songs with you on KCRW ever since.
Originally I was told the album would come out this month (October), but it’s been pushed back to 2015. So …
