Unusual Songs

Listen to an hour of quirky or nocturnal songs on this New Sounds program. Hear selections by singer/songwriter Robin Holcomb, and her piano-based, spooky, and sensual tune “Deliver Me”; and from the Big Bad Love soundtrack, Tom Waits’ "Jayne’s Blue Wish" with a trumpet solo full of woe. Also, there are songs by Last Forever, Sigur Ros, Rinde Eckert, Mediaeval Baebes, and WNYC’s own David Garland, from his newly-released 6th album, “On the Other Side of the Window."
