American music is where it’s at, and KDHX is the place to be to get the lowdown on some recent releases that may have slipped a bit below your radar.
Kenny DeShields doesn’t fit into any single genre of music, and that’s OK with him. He has made his own.
With influences like Curtis Mayfield, the Meters and Quincy Jones, the Provels are St. Louis' soul providers.
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 list has it all: indie rock, blues, country, folk, pop, reggae, jazz and everything in between. It's the kind of year-end roundup KDHX loves to make, because it illustrates the passion and curiosity of our DJs -- and of you, our loyal listeners.
Written by Dave Hamilton and Clarence Paul, and recorded by Marvin Gaye in 1964, "Purple Snowflakes" isn't known as a holiday classic, even though it really should be. St. Louis band Rough Shop updates the dreamy, jazzy, psychedelic sound with a cover that's both faithful and fully inspired.
Home town musician Devon Allman played blues, rock and soul guitar for a sold-out crowd at the Gramophone on Saturday.
