I discovered this band a long time ago on Jamendo, a site for Creative Commons music. This French electro-rock (with a touch of industrial) band stuck out as a gem amongst the other music on the site, and I've been a fan ever since.

Honorable mention goes to this fun choral cover of Never Gonna Give You Up, joined by Mr. Astley himself. Consider yourself rickrolled!

The best songs tell stories, whether it’s the writer’s own story or someone else’s. The Decemberists are excellent storytellers, able to paint a picture in your mind of the scene.

I'd like to kick off 2020 with this great live recording of local Seattle band, Deep Sea Diver. This recording is a little old, but it was the first one made at the studio in KEXP's new location. Coincidentally, their grand opening celebration is also where I first saw Deep Sea Diver perform live!

Happy holidays! Today I leave you with the musical adaptation of Mary Schmich's essay. I hope you will think about its meaning as you enter the new year.

Grum's first album will throw you back a few decades with its excellent "retro" sound. It's also groovy as hell. Now, go watch this music video...

I found dEUS when searching online for another band of the same name, and I'm glad I did – because it led me to this album!
