Saturday, September 08, 2012

We'll hear works that exist at the juncture of art song and pop song on this New Sounds. There's music from Clogs, who have lately become purveyors of vocal chamber pop, with additions of singers from the indie rock world. There's also a brilliant collection of new work from Corey Dargel, a Texas-born, Brooklyn based composer, who impishly crafts classical pop song cycles. Plus, music by Natalie Merchant, Alex Cline, Brian Dewan, and David Sylvian.
