Unconventional Songs

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, July 04, 2013

We'll hear unusual approaches to songs on this New Sounds program, including something from vocalist/composer/songwriter Julia Holter, whose recent "Ekstasis," both bewitches and confounds with its substantial song-craft and challenging freak-pop.  Listen to songs by Julia Holter, along with recent songs from violinist/composer Carla Kihlstedt, and songwriter Lee Feldman.  Plus, music from Elizabeth & the Catapult.
