Live @ KEXP Volume Five

Lovingly compiled from the best of our over 440 live in-studio performances hosted by KEXP in 2009, this CD is more than a record; it's a testament that independent music and art is still alive and kicking.

KEXP 90.3 FM - Live Performance: Vivian Girls on 9/6/09

Track 16:

Vivian Girls - I Can’t Stay

All-girl Brooklyn trio Vivian Girls throw down a charming sonic barrage that's equal parts rock, surf, 60s girl group and punk during their performance from Gibson Showroom during KEXP's broadcast from CMJ. Brooklyn trio Vivian Girls is a punk band. Their songs are simple, catchy, have some reverbed-out jangle thrown in for fun, and they rock. Check 'em out in this live set from the Bumbershoot Music Lounge with material from their 2nd album "Everything Goes Wrong." -M. Ogaz - M. Ogaz

Track 17:

MGMT - Pieces Of What

Begun as a joke by college pals Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, MGMT has developed into a serious creative force by melding electroclash, glam, prog, psychedelia, and pop while writing memorable, though often still quite tongue-in-cheek songs.

Track 18:

Phosphorescent - Wolves

Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Matthew Houck aka Phosphorescent plays his dark, drowsy indie-folk live for KEXP listeners. It’s a great acoustic set featuring a couple Willie Nelson covers.
