Live performance by Zee Avi (Listen to this set: )
 
From YouTube poster to pop star hopeful, Zee Avi earned an album for her efforts. Zee, a Borneo-born, Malasia-based singer songwriter, channels a fair amount of Nora Jones and Billie Holiday in her charming, self titled debut, which features her playing both guitar and ukelele. Zee Avi dropped by to play a few tunes live.

Live performance and chat with Black Sea Hotel (Listen to this set: )
 
With a debut conjuring up another part of the world, Black Sea Hotel focuses on the angelic a capella traditions of Bulgarian women's choirs. The quartet melds a contemporary, other-worldly style with a reverence for this ancient tradition. Three members of Black Sea Hotel sang live and brought some traditional recordings to spin on WFMU.

  Mon. 6/1/09 3:03pm Sean Gostage:

Second comment, perhaps?
  Mon. 6/1/09 3:08pm dc "pat":

great music, and comment #3.
  Mon. 6/1/09 3:10pm Parq:

Completely out of the money, but digging the sounds you bet.
  Mon. 6/1/09 3:16pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

ahhhh....
  Mon. 6/1/09 3:33pm SpeedyPete:

So Zee is from Malaysia? Does she know of the Malay pop singer Bic Runga? What does Zee think of Bic? I used to listen to a bit of Bic back in the day.
  Mon. 6/1/09 3:37pm favorite wfmu chat handle:

"SpeeyPete" - hands down
  Mon. 6/1/09 3:44pm SpeedyPete:

Not bad with the Bic Runga reference huh?

Y'er welcome Irene.
  Mon. 6/1/09 3:47pm Parq:

I'm definitely hearing some jazzy phrasing in these last couple of songs, but I believe that playing "Name That Genre" is usually more limiting than illuminating. That's why my fave Itunes (sorry, Ike) tag is "Unclassifiable".
  Mon. 6/1/09 3:54pm JCityJensen:

Hey There? are there archives of the Primavera shows?
  Mon. 6/1/09 3:54pm dc pat:

what, Ike doesn't like iTunes? Hmm, iTunes and ill-used apostrophe's, what does that tell you about a guy?
  Mon. 6/1/09 4:03pm Parq:

Jens, as of last Friday night, the answer to that was no. Maybe things will change. Pat, I'll brooke no disparagement of our pal and the station's ur-volunteer.
  Mon. 6/1/09 4:11pm dc pat:

hey I'm not disparagin', just a friendly poke.
  Mon. 6/1/09 4:15pm Sean Gostage:

Just love the Varttina track,this will be my first Finnish album to add to my collection,wonderful
  Mon. 6/1/09 4:43pm lea:

Excellent sounds!
  Mon. 6/1/09 4:59pm fred:
