Guy Klucevsek and Polka From the Fringe

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

Accordionist and composer Guy Klucevsek stops by for a visit, on the occasion of the reissue of “Polka From the Fringe,” 29 previously out-of-print tracks for accordion by Klucevsek and 27 other composers.  With titles like Lois V Vierk’s “Attack Cat Polka,” or Elliott Sharp’s jolt of punk in “Happy Chappie Polka,” there’s a bit of playful wackiness to the collection, yet also some loveliness – like William Duckworth’s “Polking Around” and Peter Garland’s “Club Nada Polka.”

New Releases, November 2012

Friday, November 30, 2012

It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully sorts through the stacks and boatloads of new CDs & downloads which have come across his desk over the past month to present some of the finest new releases. He'll pick the lentils from the ashes to present the cream of this crop.  Listen for new music by Turkish composer Erdem Helvacioglu & guitarist/composer Bill Walker that marries lap steel guitar and electronic to create wide open soundscapes. Also, hear electric and acoustic selections from a compilation of guitar music, curated by Elliott Sharp, called "I Never Metaguitar Too."
