Jehnny Beth and Ayşe Hassan are two of the four members that make up the London-based band Savages. Their debut album of ferocious post-punk was shortlisted for the UK's prestigious Mercury Prize. Their follow-up, called, "Adore Life," comes out this week. They provide a playlist for the next time your dinner party turns into a real-life game of Clue.
We look back at the many artists who cited the rock legend as an influence on our show.
Rapper Terrence Thornton -- better known as Pusha T -- was half of the iconic rap duo Clipse. Kanye West recently appointed him president of his record label, G.O.O.D. Music. He's got a new solo album called "Darkest Before Dawn." Here he is with songs... and one drink recommendation.
Daryl McDaniels -- aka "D.M.C." of rap legends Run-D.M.C. -- is a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, a comic book author, and most germane for our holiday show, he co-wrote his band's holiday hit "Christmas in Hollis." He recalls how the song came about and how it almost never came to be.
Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf are the duo behind the band EL VY. You may know Matt from the hugely popular indie band The National, and Brent from the Portland band Menomena. They bring you down to earth with their party playlist for a night of playful banter.
Paul Burch is a piano playing Nashvillian who loves honky tonk. His latest project is "Meridian Rising," and it's a musical autobiography of the father of country music Jimmie Rodgers. Here's a track called, "Meridian."
Nadia Reid is a young New Zealand based folk musician with a new album called "Listen to Formation, Look for Signs." Here's a track from it entitled "Call the Days."
Seattle-based musician Will Toledo -- of the indie band Car Seat Headrest -- got his start in Leesburg, Virginia recording music in his car, hence the band's name. He just signed to Matador Records, and he's got a new album called "Teens of Style." Here he is with a laid-back playlist.
Alan Palomo, better known as Neon Indian, weaves disco bass lines into reggae beats to produce a sound that's easily danceable, but hard to describe. He offers up a late-night playlist that'll take you deep into the evening and with a little Spanish flair.
Raury is the 19-year-old musician who caught the eye of Kanye West with his mixtape "Indigo Child." With his debut album "All We Need," he blends folk and hip hop in songs that range from feel-good to political. The Georgia-born soul-folk wunderkind picks a playlist that takes us into the forest – and the future (3500, specifically). No word if Andre 3000 is invited.
