The Muse in Music

Page: 2

Hey listeners, tonight’s episode can be described as tender at best. The official start of winter isn’t until next week, but lately the weather would make one feel otherwise. The songs featured help to emphasize the mood.

The Muse In Music presents a second edition of Local Only, an hour (ish) of women within the music community here in Portland. Looking past the technical blunder which makes up the first ten minutes of the episode, I feature Natasha Kmeto, Valet, Sara Jackson-Holman and a bunch of other names I’m sure you’ve seen […]

Hey, Portland! It’s raining outside. Summer’s over this weekend.  Beanies are gon’ be everywhere, whether you’re prepared for the invasion or not. I’ve had a rather hectic week, but I’m back in the studio a little earlier than planned to bring you a new round of ladies to match the mood outside. Electronic mostly, like […]

Another Friday, another episode. I’ve been digging a lot of electronic stuff as of late. Which, I mean, let’s be real. With the release of Beach House’s new album and singles from Pure Bathing Culture and Chvrches, I’m reeeeeally feeling that dramatic dream pop-y electro/indie music as of late. So in this week’s episode, I kept […]

Hey listeners! On last week’s episode of The Muse In Music, I dissected the rosters of two of my favorite West Coast labels, Hardly Art in Seattle, WA and Burger Records in Fullerton, CA. Despite my inability to fully explain in words at the moment, there’s some sort of new riot grrl-esque movement occurring here […]

Hey everyone! San Francisco singer-songwriter Sarah Bethe Nelson and her band dropped by the KPSU station for a very special performance on The Muse In Music before their show at Mississippi Studios yesterday night. Joining her were bandmate Ella Jaszczak on bass, Rusty Miller on guitar, and drummer Mike Shoun (after I led them through […]

Hey there, listeners. New week, new playlist. In between my bantering and other such nonsense, here are the names which made it onto tonight’s episode of The Muse In Music: Sharon Van Etten – Facebook // Website Her new EP, I Don’t Want to Let You Down, is currently available through Jagjaguwar. The Julie Ruin – […]

I don’t really remember why I wanted to call tonight’s playlist “Had a Bad Day, Bro?” but I don’t feel like changing it. Matches the overall mood of the last week, or something. Besides, who doesn’t want to be called a bro? A lady. Ladies don’t really like that, unless you’re being ironic. Fun fact: […]

  Jo & Lanny talk to an awkward group of people: Kyle Reigle (Cemeteries), Kate Davis (Track and Field Records), Ivan Gagatsko (The Sweater I Gave You). We discussed the new Cemeteries’ album, Barrow, the new Azul Toga EP, and Track and Field Records’ upcoming releases and plans!


Have a great radio time!
