Joesph Arthur

On May 13, 2014 prolific artist Joseph Arthur released his first album on the Vanguard Record label, though perhaps not the record he initially imagined.
The release, titled “Lou: The Songs Of Lou Reed” is a collection of cover songs performed solo, stripped away, pulled apart and generally re-imagined as a way to remember his late friend and mentor who suddenly passed away on October …

Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice aka Jenny and Johnny are one of my favorite musicals couples because they are both ultra-talented and compliment each other so well.
We recently recorded a live session with Jenny around her latest solo album “The Voyager” (airing on Monday, 11/3) and seeing Johnathan behind the scenes, clearly providing off stage support, made me want to revisit their session in …

From KCRW DJ Travis Holcombe:
They don’t call Big Freedia the Queen of Bounce for nothing.
Her LA debut back in 2010 is the stuff of legend, and ever since that performance I’ve been on a mad tear to track down anything I could find by Freedia.
She is far and away the biggest name in New Orleans Bounce music today, so when I found out she …

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.

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.
It was a 2001 album by an artist named Outside, which Jason tends to favor as a music bed. One listen to the album and it’s easy to …

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 …
