Co-founded by Steven Swartz and Alan Drogin, SoNGS FRoM A RANDoM HoUSE is not your usual electric guitar-based swing combo. They eschew those instruments in favor of electric-ukuleles/ viola/ upright bass/percussion/ and voice. The band's songs, composed by Swartz and arranged by the group, are by turns passionate and cool, mysterious and funny. The newest SoNGS FRoM A RANDoM HoUSE disc, ‘gListen,' was released in August and they dropped by to swing the WFMU studios.
