Art Songs

For this New Sounds, listen to unusual art songs from the likes of Mikel Rouse, Clogs, and Carla Kihlstedt & Matthias Bossi.  Hear brand new material from Clogs, the purveyors of vocal chamber pop, from their forthcoming EP, “The Sundown Song.” There's also a piece from Texas-born, Brooklyn based composer Corey Dargel, and his song cycle – “Someone Will Take Care of Me,” as performed by ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble.)

Also, from the husband-and-wife collaborative partnership, hear songs from multi-instrumentalists Carla Kihlstedt & Matthias Bossi, from a record of music for dance, “Still You Lay Dreaming.” Plus, music by Mikel Rouse from his opera "Failing Kansas," based on Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood.”  And more.
