Friday night's performance at the Old Rock House was a bit outside the norm.
One of the hardest groups to label with any clear genre, Purity Ring has recently released the followup to its 2012 debut "Shrines." "Another Eternity" will undoubtedly be compared to the earlier fan favorite. Rather than the elaborate progression one might expect from a band's sophomore album, "Another Eternity" sounds like a welcome extension of the debut.
A great song always makes a connection -- with your heart, your body, your head, sometimes with your voice, when you can't stop singing or humming along. The DJs of KDHX know that feeling, and they love sharing it with the world. These are the songs that truly connected with them -- and we hope with you -- in 2014.
This latest release from Flying Lotus, "You're Dead!" pushes genre bending to its extremes. Although centered around the hip-hop structure, the album incorporates jazz, experimental electronic music and even some orchestral sounds. The album is intensely thematic, with every melody, harmony, rhythm, timbre and lyric focused on death in a playful and mocking tone.
