The ever-evolving artistic journey of Neko Case takes new turns and hits new heights with Hell-On, an album borne of life's curveballs and collaborations, triumphs and surprising influences.

It is with great sadness that we are reporting the passing of  Robert "Heavy Metal Bob" Stiewe on May 16th, 2018. Bob was the host of the Academy of Shred, which he hosted since 2003 on WRUR. He owned and operated Heavy Metal Records in Webster until this past April. He is survived by his loving wife Jan and his two step daughters Cori and Kelli, as well as many many friends he considered family. A special celebration of life will be held at the convenience of the family. Donations to the Benincasa House would be greatly appreciated.

Your Favorite Summer Jams

3 hours ago

Earlier this week, we asked you for your favorite summer jams — the feel-good music that'll carry you through unrelenting news cycles, flat LaCroix, and incessant reminders from your mom ("HAVE YOU PUT ON SUNSCREEN YET?"). We loved your choices, from the sultry Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa song "One Kiss" to Korean boy band BTS's "Fake Love." More importantly, we appreciated your enthusiasm: "It bangs" was a common comment, along with "It slaps" and "IT BUMPS IN THE WHIP." (We may have learned some new terms).

For an emerging artist putting out a debut album, recording a session for this show, which airs across the country, could be a nerve-racking experience. Especially if your album features a full electric band, you planned to play with them for the session and on the day, one of the members gets sick and you had to go it alone in front of a live audience. That could be extra nerve-racking.

Yo La Tengo: Still 'Around,' Thank God

Feb 27, 2013

I always look forward to a new album from Yo La Tengo. The New Jersey band's music becomes a part of my life in ways that other records don't, so I was thrilled when frontman Ira Kaplan, drummer Georgia Hubley and bassist James McNew stopped by the Afternoon Show on KEXP to perform songs from their new album, Fade.
