The year has barely begun but exceptional new releases are coming fast and feverish -- with many more to follow. Apparently, the DJs of 88.1 KDHX are champing at the bit to hear them all.
The Gramophone hosted a diverse set of bands from far and near on Saturday, January 19.
Sneaking onto stage and straight into the set list without any warning, JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound shook a few middle fingers at 2012 before we all shook our asses off.
The past several years of medical set backs kept her from the public eye, then came the word: Fontella Bass, St. Louis' leading woman of song for the past half-century, died the day after Christmas. She was 72 years of age.
We asked the DJs of 88.1 KDHX to pick their "Songs of the Year," and as you'd expect, they turned in an incredible range of styles and sounds and themes. Taken as a whole, these 33 songs provide a snapshot of the music that made us dance and sing in 2012.
The clock is ticking on 2012, and now's the time to look back on all the amazing new releases the year had to offer. The DJs of 88.1 KDHX did just that, picking their top 10 albums of the year.
Another year is now coming to a close, and it's time to take a look at the albums released in 2012 that made the biggest waves on-air at 88.1 KDHX this year.
Oh ye merry music fans, do we have a compilation for you. The second volume of KDHXmas features 17 artists from St. Louis and beyond, all playing brand new and/or familiar songs to make the season bright.
Brass and bass ruled the night on Saturday, November 24 at Plush as Funk Feast brought together three excellent St. Louis bands.
