WATCH // The Tallest Man On Earth Returns to KEXP for a Live Session, Covers David Bazan

The Tallest Man On Earth first played KEXP back in 2009 when their video series had just launched. Perhaps you remember his performance of “Where Do My Bluebird Fly,” a video that now holds almost two million views. KEXP recently beckoned Kristian back for a second performance and he obliged, giving us a four-song set. His return includes three songs off his new album, There’s No Leaving Now, and a wonderful cover of David Bazan’s “Lost My Shape.” Watch above!

Mt St Helens Vietnam Band Kick Off National Tour

Next week Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band kick off a six week national tour in support of their new album Where The Messengers Meet. During the tour Mt St Helens will perform alongside David Bazan, Dead Confederate, and Portugal, The Man. Last week the band celebrated the release of their new album with a free show at the Mural Ampitheatre in Seattle. The show wrapped up KEXP’s summer concert series at the mural and boasted the largest crowd of the season. The fine folks at KEXP captured the show on video and you can check out Mt St Helens performing “En Fuego” from their self-titled debut above. You can find more photos from the Mural concert HERE. You can also stream a recording of the performance at the KEXP website HERE. Check out the tour dates below and find out when Mt St Helens Vietnam Band will be in your neck of the woods.
