Belle & Sebastian
KCRW host: Marion Hodges
Since their launch on the River Clyde in Glasgow in 1996, Belle & Sebastian has sailed far and wide on the oceans of international indie-pop, stockpiling a treasure trove of gold and silver records, a loyal legion of fans and critical kudos by the barrel-load. The current line-up has been in place for more than 10 years, selling over 3 million albums, releasing a dozen singles and playing countless sold-out concerts around the world.
Proud southern California duo, and KCRW favorites, Best Coast will be special guests for the evening.
The Postal Service
