It's a Jungle out there

KEXP 90.3 is a rather FAB little radio station operating out of Seattle. I try and catch up on their live sessions whenever I remember. What makes them special is the fact the sessions are filmed in their small but perfectly formed studio with a twinkly lit backdrop. And the acoustics are perfect.

Jungle, the London soul collective, swung by recently and tore the place up. Jungle are that rare thing - they could easily have parked up as a minimalist synth duo but, and fair play to them, they've beefed up their sound and gone out on the road as a seven-piece. And the sound they make is, I don't know, Soft Cell meets James Brown. If you've not heard them yet, take a listen:

  1. I have a friend in Seattle who has sent me several of the official KEXP in session albums, through which I have discovered a few new artists to enjoy. Never remember to listen to the station itself though. must rectify that.
