(Link to play list at bottom). ... Another excursion into DJ Andy Bargerstock's world music selections revealed in this program through a 4X3 matrix (four bands each playing three tracks). Smoke Fairies (photo) is a UK female duo that blends American blues and English folk ballads in splendid compositions. Aidan Hawken with his former band, Highwater Rising, takes the lead on tracks from their 2003 CD, The In Between. The Woods is an LA-based trio featuring the singing and songwriting talents of Brad Cohen. Swedish electronica brother-duo, Velours Perfect, proves why their 2006 CD is rightly titled, King Size Brothers. Other FT first-timers on this week's show include film composer Paul Leonard-Morgan, North Carolina instrumental band Songs of Water, Ror-Shak featuring Iowa's own Julee Cruise, and Maui's Eric Stroeve. Play list. Program aired originally 4/20/11.
MARK your calendar for Oct 1 and Oct. 8, 2014 to hear DJ Andy's 8th ANNUAL BEST of FRINGE TOAST shows.
What a treat to have Beth Howard, author of Ms. American Pie: Buttery Good Pie Recipes and Bold Tales from the American Gothic House, and Making Piece: A Memoir of Love, Loss and Pie, on the show.
Beth is not only a terrific baker and writer, but has a huge heart.
We are going to catch up during dinner before the show (pasta with trombocino squash and a roasted sweet red pepper and tomato sauce infused with fresh rosemary, shredded brussels sprouts tossed with pecorino romano, olive oil, salt and pepper, and some ice cream sans pie for dessert. I can’t wait to catch up on what’s happening with her.
We'll discuss some of her experiences during the past four years when she resided in one of America's iconic houses and tourist attractions, her most recent book, plans for the future, and a more intimate discussion about the power of a slice of pie.
On today’s edition of That Righteous Jive I’ve got some great experimental brass and underground hip-hop from 2014.
I’ll be featuring Moon Hooch, an experimental brass trio (composed of a drummer and two saxophonists) from Brooklyn, and their second album together: This Is Cave Music. Moon Hooch’s objective is to create house music through an organic process, thus dubbing their sound “cave music”. On their new album they use a variety of effect pedals to further blend the line between instrument and electronic.
We’ll also hear from Renegade Brass Band, Guts, Chill Bump, Nitsua and Vanilla. Stream it live September 23rd 5-6pm CDT right here on KRUU radio.
This week we'll hear cuts from Justin Townes Earle's new 'live in the studio' EP called Noistrade Eastside Manor Sessions (a free download at www.Noisetrade.com). The EP features live acoustic versions of several songs from Justin's new album: Single Mothers.
Justin is the son of Steve Earle and has received wide critical acclaim for both his songs and his bluesey, acoustic guitar work.
Hi from Gilberto in Spain with a seafood paella!!
Turning grief into a wildly popular, hilarious series of pet poetry books is one of Francesco Marciuliano's many accomplishments. His latest book, I Knead My Mommy and Other Poems by Kittens was just released by Chronicle Books. It follows two other volumes, I Could Chew on This and Other Poems by Dogs and I Could Pee on This and Other Poems by Cats, which made it onto many best-seller lists. Francesco dedicated his first pet poetry book, I Could Pee on This, to his cats, Natasha and Boris. After they died, he coped with losing them by writing humorous poetry from their point-of-view.
Where does the creativity to spin sadness into joy come from? Francesco (who's also a cartoonist and playwright) employs several tactics to avoid writers block and facilitate creative expression. For insights into the creative process of a very talented guy, tune in this week to The Studio with Cheryl and Francesco Marciuliano.
Jessica Burks and friends.
