Seattle’s KEXP has just shared a nearly 40-minute live set by Ride that the shoegaze legends performed for the radio station last October ahead of their proper concert that night. The nine-song set is taken entirely from This Is Not a Safe Place, the band’s second post-reunion album, which was released last August.
Record Rack: A round-up of the week’s new albums, expanded reissues and/or box sets, appearing each Monday on Slicing Up Eyeballs. All releases due out this Friday unless noted. This week’s titles include a new EP from the reunited Ride, plus the latest studio album from indie legends Superchunk.
Ride stopped by Seattle’s KEXP radio station this past September while in town to promote the group’s comeback album Weather Diaries, and performed a 40-minute set for broadcast that included performances of four songs off that new LP and a couple of old favorites from Nowhere and Going Black Again.
