The five members of Portland-based No Kind of Rider have been making music together since their teen years in Oklahoma, drawing influence from jazz, post-punk, R&B, shoegaze and electronic. Their 2018 debut full-length, 'Savage Coast,' strikes an intricate balance between these varied genres, resulting in a sound that evokes no comparison. Audioasis host Eva Walker welcomes the band to the KEXP Live Room for four songs from the record and a discussion on how music heals in times of grief. Recorded 09/10/2019. 4 songs - Intermission, Dark Ice, Sophia, Autumn.
