A howling voice, a droning guitar, a floorboard lined with looping gizmos, and a restless lyrical sensibility like few other songwriters: That's Richard Buckner the performer; he brought his one-man, musical hypnosis treatment to KDHX.
Portland, Oregon psychedelic punks the Unit Breed play an experimental brand of heavy, fuzzy, surrealist rock that recalls both Fugazi and Sonic Youth. Catch the exclusive in-studio on Trip Inside This House.
"My name is pilgrim and I'm going home," shouts Jason Kutchma on Red Collar's latest album. Home is somewhere between the psychedelic jangle of R.E.M. and the raving, blue collar rock of the Hold Steady. The band visited Coin-Operated Radio for a live performance.
You may know the Antlers as a boisterous and bizzarely dressed band of University of Missouri basketball fans. But don't forget the Brooklyn band of the same name, and their decidedly more controlled, graceful and heart-felt aesthetic.
The members of My Name Is Nobody possess a certain je ne sais quoi, and not just because they're from Pays de la Loire, France. With hushed acoustic guitars and delicate percussion that explode into pop choruses, the neo-folk rockers spent the evening with KDHX.
For her debut album, St. Louisian Sheila Shahpari asks, "What Is Real"? She answers with jazzy melodies, bluesy delivery and modern rock urgency. She spun round the Musical Merry-Go-Round during an exclusive in-studio session.
Jesse Elliott formed These United States as a sprawling, semi-psychedelic, neo-folk collective in 2006, and he hasn't looked back. Hear the celebrated Washington, D.C. group's in-studio, recorded for Juxtaposition and Coin-Operated Radio.
Saint Louis joint Person X needles the underground hip hop scene with necessary dose of hard-hitting politics and aggressive electronic sounds. Experience the groove during a live performance on Silver Tray.
It's a little too easy to call Vitamen A a jam band. The heavy, psychedelic rockers have been exploring improvisational funk, jazz and rock & roll since the early '90s.
