With his signature raspy wail and fusion of gospel, punk and folk styles, Langhorne Slim returns with the horn-laced "Life's a Bell" from the forthcoming album "The Spirit Moves."
Jessica Lee Wilkes makes an impressive debut as she swings and strolls through a classic New Orleans R&B sound on the irresistible "Love Like Crazy."
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.
I have to admit that lately, I'm feeling the effects of age. On the back end of my 40s, my body is letting me down, my short-term memory is shot through with holes and I feel my aesthetic and artistic sensibilities are, to say the least, unappreciated by the current crop of whippersnappers coming up.
Produced by Kenny Vaughan, "Goin' in Hot" comes exactly as advertised: a smoking rhythm and horn section fans the flames of the hardcore county sound for which Moot Davis is so well revered.
The DJs of 88.1 KDHX have picked their "Songs of the Year," and the resulting list -- spanning all manner of sounds and styles, ranging from radio hitmakers to local heroes -- forms a pretty comprehensive (and thoroughly enjoyable) look back at the year in music that was 2013.
As KDHX reaches the end of an era and begins broadcasting from the Larry J. Weir Center for Independent Media in Grand Center, we're also reaching the end of 2013.
