On the heels of her unamplified Pin Drop Tour, Northwest roots-rock singer Brandi Carlile has just released her fifth and and most rocking album. On The Firewatcher's Daughter, Carlile trades sheen for grit by recording deeply emotive songs in single takes. In this live studio performance at KEXP, she and her band blaze through the defiant barn-burner "Mainstream Kid."
