Yesterday started like this:
Me: (To the tall guy getting water) “Is there enough water in there for you? Do you need any more?”
Matt: “No- It’s all good. I think we’ll be fine”
Me: “Great. I’m Collin by the way. I’m with Morning Becomes Eclectic.”
MC: “Hi, I’m Matt. With, umm… Matt Costa.”
Later on, the irony of Matt Costa having a bit of an identity crisis with …
It can be a rare thing to have the interview portion of Morning Becomes Eclectic be just as entertaining as the artists performance but, then again, Eels frontman Mark Oliver Everett or “E” is a unique man.
It’s equally out of the ordinary for an artist to have their guitar strings attached directly to their hear while they play with every emotion all at once …
When Ra Ra Riot released their second album “The Orchard” in 2010, there was a strong enough connection to their debut album “The Rhumb Line” that we could start to ease into a sort of comfort ability with the group. The orchestral, indie pop sound flanked by deep cellos and weeping violins were a welcomed departure from the sometimes indistinguishable dance music of the …
Toro Y Moi‘s latest offering “Anything In Return” had been steadily making it’s way into the hands of every single KCRW DJ before his live performance on Morning Becomes Eclectic.
So much so that it quickly became the number one most played album on our playlist for a few weeks now.

The second installment in the 2013 First Fridays series is nearly here, so we wanted to reflect on the January kick off with photos of performances by Lord Huron and Wildcat! Wildcat!
I think I speak for all of Los Angeles when I say that we, as a city, are SO excited this series is back! If the first one is any indication of how …

We were first introduced to Joey Burns and …

I love a first mixtape from a friend.
It works as a communication of their feelings and intentions and simultaneously as a reflection of themself. It also works as a living snapshot that will forever seal that moment in a musical vacuum. It is a sonic time capsule and time machine.
A good mixtape never dies.
I love when artists release mixtapes. Whereas some listeners may see them as some frustrating stop gap …

Right now we are in the midst of KCRW’s Summer Pledge Drive**, so what better time to celebrate what we do?
Emmy award-winning producer Michael Nadeau (“Art & Copy”) is a longtime KCRW listener and fan. A few years ago, he approached KCRW about filming a documentary about Morning Becomes Eclectic and he’s become a familiar face in our studios, stopping by to interview bands …
KCRW has had a banner week of some of our favorite bands visiting for their second time around our studios. Today’s treat was Mayer Hawthorne.
Mayer Hawthorne is a charmer. I don’t think I’m going out on a limb by saying that. That was proven today here when he strolled into our studios in a killer coat and shades. Today’s performance marked his second visit …

We all know him.
We all love him.
His album, Graceland, is hitting its silver anniversary! In celebration of the 25 years of joy that Graceland has brought us all, Bosco Delrey and Givers have covered some favorites from that album.
Hear Bosco Delrey remix and cover “I Know What I Know” with a fun 80s synth vibe.
Don’t forget to give Givers‘ cover of “That Was …
