Imagine the solitude of mowing lawns while listening to music.  Now take two electric guitars, reverb, and paint a dreamy unfolding cinematic drifting record, by a group calling itself Lawnmower.

We’ll hear from Lawnmower on this New Sounds program, along with some slow-simmering bluesy piano-driven and electric guitar augmented ensemble music by Carlos Bica & Materia.  Plus, music by Bill Frisell, Terje Rypdal, and more.

A really good wedding reception ought to be an out and out party, that is, lasting long enough to be too much for either a band or DJ alone. Most I've been to have had both. There was even the one that featured breakfast the next morning for those who made the long haul. That one featured a DJ, plus a string quartet on the breaks.
