KCRW Music Librarian Picks of the Week: Castanets, twain, Absolutely Free

absolutely free

Absolutely Free – Absolutely Free. (Lefse)
Canadian trio Absolutely Free offer up their self-titled debut (well, technically there is a period in the album name).
It’s often tough to make a modern record with extensive electronic elements sound genuinely psychedelic, but they manage quite nicely, touching on just about every kind of music on the spectrum in mind-blowing fashion.

Castanets – Decimation Blues (Asthmatic Kitty)
Portland, OR-based artist …

KCRW’s Apogee Sessions feat Jenny Lewis by Jeremiah Garcia

While Jenny Lewis’ new album “The Voyager” was born out of many tales of woe (gnarly bouts of insomnia, the death of her father, and the end of her band Rilo Kiley), she has never looked more comfortable or happier on stage than how she did at Apogee Studio for a live KCRW session taped last night.
In her slick black pantsuit, rockin’ a rainbow …

Leon Bridges – “Coming Home”
On my first listen to this track, I had to go back and check whether it was brand new or very old.
It taps into some serious Sam Cooke-style soul and I wasn’t sure! I found it via Gorilla vs Bear, where I learned that that it’s from an artist named Leon Bridges, a singer/songwriter from Fort Worth who brought in …

Polish DJ/production duo Ptaki (which means birds in Polish) flew into discerning listeners radars like a full on flock sometimes registers on an air traffic controllers screen awhile back with a ripping 7″ on the Very Polish Cut-Outs label a few years back. “Krystina” is a laid back groover that by edit standards stands out as a shimmering example of what a savvy editor can do …

freedia

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 …
