Charting the Music: Ex Hex, 'Rips'

Just one year after forming, Washington D.C. trio Ex Hex has released "Rips," a debut album full of glam rock, power pop and post-punk gold. Veteran rockers Mary Timony, Laura Harris and Betsy Wright have created songs that fill your mind and make your head move. "Rips" is mixture of clean, but not polished, power pop combined with energetic, rowdy guitar riffs and drums.

This past year was a weird one. Thankfully, music made the tough times easier. So many great records came out, almost too many to keep track of; so here's a slice, a mere sliver of the releases that caught my ear this year.

This past year proved to be another great 12 months for new music, and I'm proud to share my top 10 albums (as featured often on my show "Bittersweet Melody") with the KDHX audience.

Though I had a top albums list of 2014, choosing singles made for a larger variety of sounds, and it was much easier to decide on my "best of," as I only had to remember the songs that made me smile the most.

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.

When you think of holiday-music makers, you probably don't think of indie-rock band Los Campesinos! The Cardiff, Wales group wants to change that with a new Christmas EP this year and the irresistably melodic and quintessentially Campesino-esque track "When Christmas Comes."

What a great year for new music. These are the top 2014 releases you've heard most on the KDHX airwaves this year. If you've seen past KDHX year-end lists, it's no great surprise that the New Pornographers and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings were the top spins for this year.

Song of the Day: 'So Obscure' by Mappa Mundi

Brooklyn, New York singer and songwriter Adam Levine, leader of Mappa Mundi, has no fear of sentiment. He knows that feelings need not be filtered through irony, even in the context of indie rock. On the lushly-arranged and folksy "So Obscure," he lays his heart on the line between bathos and beauty.
