KEXP's Review Revue

The KEXP blog occasionally features scans of well-worn albums from the archive plastered with reviews/comments/snark from the DJs over the years under the "Review Revue" tag. I linked to the Slint entry the other day, but I went back and scrolled through the backlog of these and thought they were brilliant, so I thought it would be fun to put up some links to some of the bands (if not the particular albums) that have been featured in the 33 1/3 series. There's a surprising amount of overlap... or maybe not so surprising, considering that the KEXP blog is also on a quest to review each and every volume of the 33 1/3 series. Anyway, as someone who has shared living spaces with former college radio program directors for 8 of the last 11 years, I gotta say this rings true.

There's much more where that came from. Enjoy!
