KXLU Live Vol. 6
Indie rock/pop/math rock/hip-hop/experimental --Compilation of bands playing line on KXLU in LA -- mostly indie rock but also good math rock and hip-hop and a few good experimental/noise tracks. To their credit, indie rock tracks often deviate from well-worn formulae -- and the noise/experimental tracks were especially good (CD1: 3, 16)


PICS: CD1: 1, 3, 4, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16 CD2:1, 3, 6, 10, 12, 14, 15, 17
