Before Clipping.’s Union Transfer gig with Shabazz Palaces last week, the LA-based trio came into the studio for a live session with us. The monster set includes seven songs separated into two tracks on our bandcamp site.
The session will be available to download for one week, and will stay streaming afterwards. Listen below!

“Let the boogie lick your lips. Let the jangle, shake your soul. Let the light shine on your third eye. And may your visions bring you back to love. Love which is…. Needle Points.”
In the final months of 2010, Midwestern Emo group Joie De Vivre stopped in to perform a few tracks for us. The music is an excellent showcase for the genre–the songs are lush, featuring trumpet and glockenspiel, and come replete with the emotive singing the genre is named for.
Cheap Girls is a rock band from Lansing, Michigan. Give ‘em a listen if you like The Replacements, Soul Asylum, and early Smoking Popes.

This in-studio actually happens to be one of my favorite memories from my time at Drexel so far. One of my freshman year floormates heartily recommended The Music Tapes (along with several other Elephant 6 groups) earlier that year, so when I caught wind of the performance happening, I knew I had to be down in the station for it. Julian Koster (the man behind The Music Tapes), who has been remarkably nice in every interaction I have ever had with him , allowed me to sit in the performance room and observe from a few feet away. In all earnestness, it was a magical experience. I have since taken every opportunity possible to see The Music Tapes (including their stellar performance as part of the Traveling Imaginary tour earlier this year), but this is what got me hooked. Listen and enjoy.
With air-tight harmonies that feel like a strange but beautiful cross between Fleet Foxes and The Grateful Dead, this Philly trio truly is deserving of the national recognition they’ve been getting recently. Just before the release of their self-titled sophomore album, Good Old War stopped by WKDU to play a handful of songs off their first album, Only Way To Be Alone.
