Many a female singer-songwriter has been called a songbird by way of description. This week the songbirds on Lyrical Venus will sing about birds.
Whether it's blackbirds, white birds, birds on wires, or even imagining life without birds, those fine feathered friends have definitely inspired many a song for lovely ladies like The Be Good Tanyas, Melissa Ferrick, Leela and Ellie Grace, Rachel Ries, KT Tunstall, Sharon Bousquet, and more, so come have a listen Tuesday at 9 AM! Your heart just might fly away...
There are now 12 releases from Beautiful Eternal, even though the netlabel is officially less than two weeks old. Come bear witness to this rapidly expanding catalogue and bask in the warmth of the very first KRUU-inspired netlabel. See for yourself what can be accomplished in the spirit of CREATIVE COMMONS!
The new netlabel Beautiful Eternal is the product of a year's worth of education from Sundar Raman and James Moore about just how cool a tool Creative Commons (CC) actually is...I've been producing ambient and tribal electronic music for 14 years and even began my own "traditional" record label 10 years ago, but now the netlabel model with CC at its foundation is clearly the next stage of evolution.
Due to technical difficulties, this show did not air last Sunday. (LOL Jimmy!) Here it is. Round Two...
One hour of solid, crucial sound. Cut, pasted, spliced, diced, faded, sampled and
mixed up. It's a mean and nasty medley folks. Dial it.

This week brings you international bands such as Germany's Olaf Boqwist & trip-hop duo NeoQi, and French electro-pop cuties, the Underwires (and I am not talking about the annoying piece of lingerie that jabs into your sides).The core members of Underwires are twin brothers Aurélien and Théophile & co. whom are currently based in Berlin and I am pleased as punch that they sent me their cd. I will also be featuring Austin based Ghostland Observatory and their muse Daft Punk. Of course, I haven't overlooked the west coast ...how about a bit of Portland's Childhood Friends and a sampling of the effervescent & elusive music of California chanteuse Benett? Hmmm... tune in to find out why I should have taken the advice of her song's title "Don't Mention Disco".

It's Thursday and that means it's time to get a little crooked. This week on Crooked Sisters Radio Hour I'll be showcasing a few of my favorite fiddle players ... from one of the best in the biz, Laurie Lewis, to some of the newer fiddler chicks on the scene, like Sara Softich.
I'll be highlighting the contributions these fiddlin' crooked sisters bring to Roots, Americana, Country, and Bluegrass. Join me, your host Lauryn Shapter, for two hours of the best in all things twang, Thursday ten to noon.
See you on that crooked road.
