Video: Polica Visits KEXP

If you haven’t noticed, there are several of us (read: all) who write on this blog who have a particular affinity for the female lead singer indie band model.   What it is that drives us to fall in love with this style cannot be completely understood or explained, but my guess is that it involves some weird mesh of sound, sensuality, and sexuality.  2012’s newest darling has to be Channey Leaneagh.  Her newest project Poliça released their fabulous 2012 album Give You The Ghost earlier this year that has become an instant favorite in my rotation.  The group dropped by KEXP studios in February with the set just reaching the interwebs late last week.  And like everything KEXP posts, it is just incredible.

Set list:

Dark Star

The Maker

Wandering Star

Leading to Death

Video: Father John Misty (Live at KEXP)

In between twitter rants and releasing one of my personal favorite albums this year in Fear Fun, Josh Tillman aka Father John Misty had some time to drop by the KEXP studios in Seattle to record a live session.  And guess what?  It’s 25 minutes of solid gold sound.  So kick off your 3-day weekend with your recreation of your choice and some Father John.

Live Video: Alabama Shakes Visit KEXP (Full Performance)

The Alabama Shakes are no stranger to getting love from us here at Thought on Tracks, and that’s probably not going to stop anytime soon because, well, they are really fucking good.  Below you can catch a 4-song performance of the Shakes taking over the KEXP studios in Seattle that concludes with their latest single “Hold On”.

The tracklist:

  1. Rise to the Sun
  2. Hang Loose
  3. I Found You
  4. Hold On

Don’t forget that the band’s debut album entitled Boys & Girls drops on April 9th.  You can pre-order on iTunes today, or wait and pick up the vinyl at your local record at the beginning of next month.
