Running from work, I made it to the KDHX studios just seconds before the red recording light lit up, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture the setup going into Basia Bulat‘s fantastic in-studio session (now available for streaming on the KDHX website). Fortunately, I was able to snap a few shots of Bob Odenkirk’s favorite musician, which you can feel free to check after the jump while you’re enjoying live renditions of “Tall Tall Shadow,” “Promise Not to Think About Love” and “Wires.”
After seeing Escondido own the Off Broadway stage over the summer with Lord Huron, I was pretty thrilled to hear that Collector’s Edition had invited the pair of Tyler James and Jessica Maros (now with a full band) over to KDHX for an in-studio performance. The session is now streaming for free on the KDHX website and feel free to check out a selection of shots from their time at the station.
Over the Rhine, the husband/wife duo of Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist, stopped by the KDHX studios to record three stripped-down tracks (Gonna Let My Soul Catch My Body / Earthbound Love Sound / Sacred Ground) for listeners. The set is now up and streaming at the KDHX Soundcloud site and while you take a listen, be sure to check out some pictures from the event below.
Back in the hey day of summer, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down rolled through KDHX for a fantastic in-studio. With the group returning later this month for a show with The Head & The Heart, it seemed like a great time to revisit the session. Three songs are still available for you to check out on Soundcloud, so enjoy!
Gracing the newly re-opened Billiken Club later that evening, the noise duo No Age stopped by KDHX in the afternoon for a brief two-song session. The session is available for streaming up at the KDHX website and you’ll find additional pictures from their visit below.
Their new album, Blur the Line, still has a few more weeks before being unleashed (10/1), but Those Darlins still made their way up to give STL an advance listen. The evening festivities took place at the Open Highway Festival at Off Broadway, but the Nashville group took a detour to KDHX that afternoon to record an in-studio set. A few shots from the appointment await you after the jump.
After hearing her NPR Tiny Desk Concert, I definitely looked forward to hearing Dana Falconberry‘s set/interview at KDHX for the show Wax Lyrical. While currently based in Austin, TX, the songwriter draws heavily from her home and frequent travel destination of the Leelanau peninsula, explaining some of her other influences on her interview with host Caron House. The three-song set (Possum Song / Crooked River / Dolomite) is available for streaming on the KDHX site, so go forth and stream and feel free to check out some additional shots from the session below.
Dessa brought her Parts of Speech Tour back through St. Louis and brought along some bandmates to KDHX for Will Wander’s show Elevated Rhymestate. The Doomtree stalwart showcased tracks from her latest album (Call Off Your Ghost / The Lamb / Annabelle), which are now available for you to stream online at KDHX.
