Atmospheric Songs

Thursday, July 03, 2014

Listen to atmospheric songs with unusual textures and unexpected sounds or noises woven into them on this New Sounds program.  Hear songs from Brian Eno, Antony & the Johnsons, and Eno’s friend the poet and composer Ebe Oke.  There's also something by Susanna & the Magical Orchestra from Sweden, along with music from Bjork off of the record, "Medulla."  Then hear a song by Irish singer Iarla Ó Lionáird from his record Foxlight.  Plus, something of a murder ballad from the folkster Sam Amidon, and more.

Classical-Adjacent Music

Friday, September 20, 2013

Hear songs and instrumental pieces that are informed by classical music, yet ones which expertly ride the divide between classical and post-rock, or perhaps classical and electronica, on this New Sounds show. There’s music from vocalist and composer Julianna Barwick, who does a lot of looping of her own sound.  Listen to “Forever,” from her latest record, “Nepenthe,” recorded with Sigur Rós collaborator Alex Somers in Iceland. Barwick continues to play with layers of reverb, and even adds members of múm and the string quartet Amiina - in all, making luminous and dramatic music that is easy to get lost in.

Pianissimo 2

Sunday, April 14, 2013

Piano music can have a very personal touch. The piano allows a composer or performer to all alone manifest a full vision of what their music can be. David Garland presents another hour of lyrical, soulful, playful piano music, featuring recordings by Chilly Gonzales, Duke Ellington, and others.
