The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

Options December 12, 2005: Calmly bouncing around the meteors and stars with Laura Veirs and Hotbird 7.

Listen to this show:

Artist Track Album Label
 


Live performance and chat with Laura Veirs.
 
"Carbon Glacier", named after "a beautiful, dirty black and white glacier on the northern slopes of Mount Rainier, was Seattle's Laura Veirs' first album for Nonesuch, a quiet stunner that caught a lot of our ears last year. Veirs' latest disc, "Year of Meteors," she describes as a "road record." Laura says, "All the songs are about transportation, motion," and all the images that crept into her psyche as she toured all over these United States and beyond. She's took a few moments out from her travels to stop by WFMU at the top of the show.

Raised from the ashes of unknown NYC trio John Henry and claiming a failed barbeque chicken restaurant and a doomed satellite as twin muses, Hotbird 7 has been establishing its orbit since December 2002. They aim to make a big beautiful noise: fast and slow, high and low, quiet, loud, twangy, spacey, and proud.
