Not Quite Art Songs

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Listen to some not-quite art songs on this New Sounds program, including new music from the Swedish singer, keyboardist and songwriter Anna von Hausswolff, whose recent "Ceremony" is a bit of dramatic pipe-organ driven art-pop music with underpinnings of the drone metal wizards Sunn O))).  Recorded in her hometown of Gothenburg on the church organ of the vast Annedalkyrkan, the music is grave and intense, and at times, sinister.  

Also, there's music from Rabbit Rabbit, which is the duo of Carla Kihlstedt and Matthias Bossi, performing on multiple instruments.  Then, hear sound portraits of Ibsen characters, with nothing but voice and piano from Ruth Wilhelmine Meyer & Helge Lien.  Plus, music from the recent record, "Quercus," featuring June Tabor, Huw Warren, and Ian Bellamy, where traditional British folk meets exploratory jazz in contemporary settings, and more.
