Songs of Snow and Ice

Thursday, April 11, 2013

View it how you will, a nod to the George R. R. Martin series, "A Song of Fire and Ice" or an optimistic look back at snow, but this New Sounds program gets all close and personal with the cold and the white, with the "Icy Sleeves of Green" by Todd Reynolds, and some songs from Kate Bush's most recent record, "50 Words for Snow."  We'll hear songs about melting snowflakes and icicles, soundscapes evoking the blindingly white and bleak, and other works to paint wintry portraits of powdery drifts or stark frozen mountains.

Bush via Bleckmann

Sunday, January 02, 2011

Kicking off the winter season of Cued Up on Q2, we're proud to honor Kate Bush by way of Theo Bleckmann. Bush -- an unrelenting experimentalist -- blew Madonna out of the water in the UK’s charts in 1985, forever changing the world's perception of a female solo artist. Always warming and delightfully eyebrow-raising, vocal wizard Theo Bleckmann interprets songs by the iconic British songstress in this week’s episode.
