Live performance by Arborea (Shanti and Buck Curran)

 
Phil McMullen, owner of Terrascope U.K., describes Arborea this way: "Take a handful of politically sharp lyrics, hone them on a pedal-driven sharpening block in the lea of the old tumbledown barn until the point shines through, set them to melodies so intimate they sound like firelight whispers and moody, atmospheric instrumentation that soothes like a bubblebath and the result is Arborea ." The duo, featuring Buck and Shanti, hails from Lewiston, Maine and make their music overlooking Shagg Pond. Since we couldn't take the whole radio audience up there, Arborea brought their guitars, banjos and lovely voices to WFMU for an amazing recreation of their musicspace.

Live performance by Noa Babayof

 
Then Israeli songbird Noa Babayof dropped by to play a set. (She briefly toyed with a name change during this visit to Noa Bell.) A self-avowed desciple The Beatles and 60's folk music from the likes of Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. Babyof's own music is both sweet and dark. Noa describes herself this way: "her heart is full and hollow, like a cactus tree." She was fresh from a few sessions with Espers' Greg Weeks and brought her lovely voice and songs to WFMU's love room.
  -"Indian Queen"
  -"Song for Myself"
  -CD: "Marching Band"
  -"Rock Bottom Riser" (Bill Callahan)
  -"One Song"
  -CD: "Them That are Writing These Songs"
