With hundred of albums circulating through the station every week, the ones that stay get reviewed by volunteers before they make their way onto the airwaves. 2019 brought us an incredible wave of new music, along with reissues that remind us that some records are not to be overlooked. KALX volunteers Chandler Le Francis and Keesan Nam discuss 3 albums they enoyed from the past year in detail below:
Laurie Spiegel - Unseen Worlds (Scarlet Records)
Genre: Electronic Avant-Garde
Written by Chandler Le Francis
A note from the directors:
Live music has always gifted a unique experience to every individual in its presence. As someone who frantically searches for the right answer to the question what’s the best concert you’ve ever been to and ends up listing a dozen different shows for a dozen different reasons, it has only become more apparent that it is not only impossible, but unfair, to try and find a “right” answer when the artists, the instruments, the venue, the genre, the crowd and more all take part in the ritual of attending a show.
On Method to the Madness, Friday, Jabuary 17th @ 12PM, host Lisa Kiefer speaks with Leila Salazar-Lopez, the Executive Director of Amazon Watch, a non-profit based in Oakland that works to protect the rainforest and advance the rights of indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin. Just back from the COP25 Climate Summit in Madrid, she will be discussing how government policies for economic development are causing destruction, fires, and violence in the Amazon Region.
