Live on KEXP with Japanese Breakfast

Today, we bring you an episode of KEXP's Live on KEXP podcast featuring an exclusive session with Japanese Breakfast. There are many negative ways one could sum up 2021 but one shining bright positive title we can give it is "The Year of Michelle Zauner." The Oregon-born artist is probably best known as Japanese Breakfast and released the stellar album Jubilee this June but is also now an acclaimed author with the release of the New York Times bestseller Crying in H Mart in April.  For this episode of Live on KEXP we share a clip of Zauner’s conversation with Cheryl Waters about how writing the book exorcised the pain and trauma so that she could portray the joy felt on Jubilee. Zauner then plays four tracks from Jubilee plus one from her side project with Crying’s Ryan Galloway, BUMPER. Recorded June 21, 2021. Songs performed: Kokomo, IN Tactics Be Sweet Savage Good Boy Ballad O Watch the full Live on KEXP session on YouTube For a new KEXP session delivered to your feed every week, including recent favorites like Bachelor, José González, Arlo Parks, Yu Su, and Little Simz, subscribe to Live on KEXP wherever you listen to podcasts.Support the show: https://www.kexp.org/donateSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

For this New Year’s mix, Reverend Dollars brings the club to you. In her words, "For this podcast, I wanted to create a mix more reflective of the sets I would play at clubs and parties than what I do on the radio. Obviously, those kinds of spaces have been short on existence this year, but I really miss those type of environments. I've been able to do the occasional party mix here and there for livestream events, but it's not the same and I long for the community that exists around these gatherings of music and dance. I also want to place a focus on the brilliant sounds that Black electronic producers have been creating in 2020, even in this party void. Welcome to the new year, hopefully better than the last!” 1.

The Weekly Mix, Vol. 749 - Hidmo Means Home

On December 1st, 2006, Rahwa and Asmeret Habte took over Hidmo on 20th & Jackson. In a very short amount of time, Hidmo became known as a community center cleverly disguised as an Eritrean restaurant in Seattle's Central District, and a mecca for Seattle hip-hop. The space Rahwa and Asmeret helped create along with their family and friends became a safe space for youth in the neighborhood, an organizing hub for a large amount of community organizations in the city, and an all-ages venue for musicians who had very few venues accessible to them. Hidmo brought together community in a way that very few venues in our city ever have, and what happened those 4 years on 20th & Jackson can still be felt throughout our community, and the world today.  Rahwa tragically passed away earlier this year, and in honor of her legacy and the legacy of what she helped build, we brought together a playlist of some of her favorite artists who have graced the hut, along with personal memories shared from the artists themselves, including Blue Scholars, THEEsatisfaction, Khingz, JusMoni, Hollis, Shabazz Palaces, Meklit, Invincible, Dakota Camacho, Beyond Reality, Siren's Echo, One Be Lo and more. 1. Blue Scholars - The Distance (feat. Rahwa Habte & Semone Andu)* words from Prometheus Brown2. Khingz - Blaq Han Solo (feat. Rahwa Habte on the outro)* words from Meklit3. Meklit - This Was Made Here* words from Dakota Camacho4. Dakota Camacho - Hita (unreleased)* words from Imani Dinish5. Invincible - People Not Places (feat. Sabreena da Witch)* words from Invincible6. One Be Lo - Books a bout you (HisStory)* words from Stas THEE Boss7. Shabazz Palaces - Capital 5 (Recorded After Hours at the Gun Ballad Resource Center on Sweeper St.)8. THEESatisfaction - EEN SAH EWE* words from SassyBlack 9. Vitamin D - Home Don't Feel Like Home (feat. Yirim Seck & Game Solo) 10. Hollis - All My Weight* words from JusMoni11. JusMoni - Never Too Late (feat. Khingz)12.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Recent allegations have emerged against numerous artists on Burger Records, including Black Lips who are featured in this mix. The behavior survivors are alleging in recent days relating to bands in the Burger Records orbit is horrifying and reprehensible. We join many others in the community calling for accountability and reckoning within an industry that too often allows this type of behavior to be tolerated and ignored. KEXP has provided coverage and airplay for many of the artists named in the allegations, over many years. When allegations like these surface, we start from a position of believing victims and survivors, we attempt to learn more, and we take immediate appropriate action until the issue has been resolved, if it is. We're also making sure our DJs are aware of the allegations, and will be communicating with them to make sure they continue to follow the story. We will also be following this story through our own editorial coverage.  For more information on how you can support sexual assault survivors or if you need support yourself, visit RAINN.org.Support the show: https://www.kexp.org/donateSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In his words, “In honor of KEXP’s mixtape week, here’s a little contemporary something I put together in my head then on ‘tape. I don’t think there’s an on air ‘selector’ here that hasn’t done dozens of these, made personally for someone they love, cherish, or even hate. This one’s a nocturnal mix.. ‘nocturne’ from wikipedia: “The name nocturne was first applied to pieces in the 18th century, when it indicated an ensemble piece in several movements, normally played for an evening party and then laid aside.” Like Ray Charles sang, “night time is the right time.” I dedicate this to ‘Bill‘ and everyone I’ve had the pleasure of exchanging a mixtape with throughout the years. Keep making em. Keep trading em. Enjoy.” -Riz 1. Kishi Bashi - Violin Tsunami2. Four Tet - Dreamer3. Makaya McCraven - The Fifth Monk (feat.
