For those of you who are not familiar with KEXP, it is a community public radio station operated by the University of Washington that specializes in emerging music, especially alternative and indie. Their motto of “where the music matters” is very accurate. Based in Seattle, they provide access to an amazing array of musicians through their website and now through iTunes.

What is really cool is that you can subscribe to their “Song of the Day” feature for free on iTunes, listen to the recordings of independent artists through your podcast feature, and download the tune for free. It is also available for mobile phones and handheld devices. The station has great in-studio and live performances by many of the musicians. Any tour stop in Seattle must include KEXP.

Give in a try and enjoy a whole new world of great music. Here’s a few videos from KEXP that have been posted on YouTube: “Gold Guns Girls” by Metric; “Turn Off This Song” by The Lonely Forest; “Wait Up” by Tokyo Police Club; and “Unexplainable Stories” by Cloud Cult.
