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.)

Live performance by Tall Firs (Ryan Sawyer, Aaron Mullen and Dave Mies)
Angular rock at a loping pace might be a quick way of describing Tall Firs. The trio of Dave Mies, Aaron Mullan and Ryan Sawyer say of their music: "the results are like a fine cough syrup: A confusing, bittersweet concoction laced with just enough speed to keep you feeling a bit better about the world of sickness closing in around you." Writer David Fricke described one Tall Firs live set in his Fricke's Picks column: "A gently uplifting highlight of my...weekend...a psychedelic-folk tangle of spider-leg-guitar arpeggios and hazy, bong-room singalong harmonies."

Hi Irene, just wanted to thank you for having the most easily readable playlist and comments section of (just about) all the fmu dj's. Not only are the colors so easily read, but Christmas oriented, too. It's so much easier on my ailing and aging eyesight. I (and I'm sure others) REALLY appreciate it. Happy Holidaze.

Greg from Detroit:
Tall Firs SHOULD be the Soft Location band. She's my neighbor here in Detroit and she opened (solo) for Bart Davenport a couple of months ago!
