Golly I love my job at KEXP. Still can’t believe Ben Watt performed this song for our listeners when he came to visit earlier this year: “North Marine Drive (Live on KEXP)”

Score! Thank you Spin Cycle Seattle. 

Score! Thank you Spin Cycle Seattle. 

My favorite thing about interviewing artists is learning more about their overall aesthetic and creative process, as well as little likes & dislikes.

My favorite thing about Tumblr. is that it exposes me to those facets in artists I already know, while introducing me to new individuals who share ideas & passions that lure me into their personal universes.

SO GREAT.

Thank you Scott for reminding me how gorgeous FSOL can be. 

Yesterday’s big score. Thanks Georgetown Records. #newwavegeek

Dance music needs riot grrrls. Dance music needs Patti Smith. It needs DJ Sprinkles. Dance music needs some discomfort with its euphoria. Dance music needs salt in its wounds. Dance music needs women over the age of 40. Dance needs breastfeeding DJs trying to get their kids to sleep before they have to play. Dance needs cranky queers and teenagers who are really tired of this shit. Dance music needs writers and critics and academics and historians. Dance music needs poor people and people who don’t have the right shoes to get into the club. Dance music needs shirts without collars. Dance music needs people who struggled all week. Dance music needs people that had to come before midnight because they couldn’t afford full admission. Dance music does not need more of the status quo.
