KEXP is a podcast straight out of Seattle that prides itself on their program, "Music That Matters." They have a number of DJs that broadcast over KEXP. I listened Dj Miss Ashley's mix. It was a great collaboration of artists that I have never heard of before. The genres ranged from hip-hop to funk to rock music. The first song, "The Story of Echo Lake," by Michael Leonhart offered an underground trip hop sound. The fourth song, "Ricky's Revenge," by Satellite 4 was downright funky, featuring long, funkified organ solos. It featured artists from "Seattle to Australia."
This is a great station for people to listen to if they want to get into the underground sound. I like how Dj Miss Ashley tells you the titles of each song after every four songs or so. Often, stations that play underground music won't announce the title of their songs. It is so important for stations like these to inform listeners what they are listening to because it is a lot harder to find lesser known artists on your own. I also like how there is no commercial play. I think the collaboration of so many different genres in this podcast is amazing. If you are open minded and not opposed to experimentation in music, then this is the podcast for you.
