Sharlese Recommends


Special Occasions

Everyday Music
Record Store
I love visiting Everyday Music and digging for music, new and old and KEXP DJ Hans is usually there working! He is the nicest and always helps me find what I’m looking for! Running into him most recently i asked if he wanted to pick out one of his top albums of the year and combine it with one of my choices to create a special gift idea for the ultimate KEXP lover! Hans chose “Set My Heart of Fine” by Perfume Genius and I chose “All the Time” by Jesy Lanza. Between both of these albums, you’ll receive a full emotional dancing experience brought to you by two amazing artists!
Light in the Attic Record Shop
Record Store
Light in the Attic Records has a shop located in KEXP and they are such an iconic entity in the music world! They have reissued important albums like the Wheedle’s Groove comps and Rodriguez and Pacific Breeze: Japanese City Pop, AOR & Boogie 1976-1986 comp. If not going to pick up one of their iconic reissues, you can also pick up their great selection of t-shirts either from records they’ve released or repping the shop itself!
Wall of Sound
Record Store
Wall of Sound is one of Capitol Hill’s treasures! It’s another great record store to go digging and diving in! They have an interesting selection of titles and gems that I always walk out of there incredibly satisfied that I didn’t have to pay a gazillion dollars in shipping (I have expensive ‘overseas’ music taste when ordering records) and as their website says, they specialize in avante-garde, japanese noise, industrial, art rock, indie, alternative, free jazz, folk, experimental, ambient. World, electronic, electronic-acoustic, neo-classical and so much more! I picked out a couple of fun records that I thought a KEXP listener would enjoy, the “Spezial Edition Fariges” vinyl reissue of Kraftwerk Tour De France and Autechre, surprise 2020 fifteenth studio album “Plus”. These are great gifts for someone who is interested in learning about two seminal electronic bands or you already love them and want the latest releases! The Kraftwerk reissue has a special inserts inside and the Autechre is just necessary for any one of their fans. Also, Michael, a co-owner of Wall of Sound, is very helpful and has great music taste! He will always recommend titles to you as well for the ultimate Wall of Sound shopping experience.
