Jose Gonzalez on KEXP from SXSW

OK, seriously: I would kill for a radio station like KEXP in Phoenix. It just reminds me how far behind this city can be sometimes.

The Seattle radio station wrapped up a pretty amazing few days of performances from SXSW with a set from Jose Gonzalez, who, at least from the interview, seemed soft-spoken and perhaps taken a little aback at his pretty quick rise to notoriety. Check out the archive streams to go find the full interview.

On the topic of KEXP … is anyone interested in pooling together some funds for a pledge to the station? It’s a member-driven station and I feel like we’re all benefiting from their music and streams. A few bucks from a lot of people can go a long way. Leave a comment with your thoughts or e-mail me at, and I can figure out a way to set this up. (Or perhaps money would be better served going to WOXY, which is switching to a member-supported system.)

  1. Great posting Kevin! I also recorded it here from Detroit and posted in my blog.
    What a performance… Sensing Owls rocks…
    Tonight he will perform at KCRW @ 10:30PM EST. Let’s see if we can record that one as well.
