Take the edge off the winter chill with a warm cup of your favorite brew and a slice of Fringe Toast.
This week’s brew consists of another international blend of flavors from Denmark, Scotland, India, France, Argentina, Germany, UK, and Canada. Opera-to-Relax (OTR) is the highlighted group of the week.
Last week, DJ Andy Bargerstock crowned them as the “quintessential Fringe Toast
group”. Can anyone find anything on the Internet about this group? Their website indicates that an English version is coming soon. So, how do we describe them - downtempo, ethereal jazz/blues improvisations, exotic dreamy female vocals, trippy delicate electronic backscapes. Oh, yes! This sounds like an endorphin producing dessert. Tonight, you will hear a triple play of OTR tracks never heard before on this program.
The program begins with cool sounds from Snow Patrol, Moodchill, Federico Aubele, and three equally obscure one-word groups simply known as Bliss, Rainman and Emotional. The middle of the program will be upheld by British songwriter and composer Laurie Mayer, who we heard in recent weeks in her collaborations with William Orbit; and, then from Georgia, Madelein Peyroux, an incredible reincarnation of Billie Holliday. When you hear her sing, you will be transported into a time machine, taking you to the sultry 1930s blues cafes of Chicago.
Later in the program, our hearts and ears will swoon in delight from the contributions of Al Gromer Khan, Aim, Cat Power, Eurasian Macro-system, and Cantoma. This program is designed to facilitate the release of the intellect.
Prepare to unleash the soaring heart that sings eternally within your soul.
