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 Serious Fun: Anthony LaMort (keyboards & electronics); Peter Biedermann (guitars, electronics); John Hammel (vocals, harmonica)
 
Original poetry, combined with spontaneous, creative improvisations that create fever dreams of avant Americana is what the ensemble Serious Fun is all about. This New Jersey collective musically mind-melds the original poetry of John Hammel (vocals, harmonica etc.); Peter Biedermann (guitars and electronics) and Pastor Anthony LaMort (keyboards, electronics, laptop) into a blend of mayhem and musical madness, straining to reach cathartic epiphanies of the soul and spirit. Serious Fun performed live in WFMU's "love" room.

  Mon. 5/7/12 12:18pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

sounds a lot like stereolab, that bassline does
  Mon. 5/7/12 12:18pm northguineahills:

I agree DCE.
  Mon. 5/7/12 12:21pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

*eating some fine fajitas with groovy guac*
  Mon. 5/7/12 12:24pm Parq:

DCE, all that talk about Mexican on Liz's playlist got to you, eh?
  Mon. 5/7/12 12:26pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well, it just showed up at the office, and who am I to turn it down?
  Mon. 5/7/12 12:26pm Dafydd:

Greetings Irene from the office.
  Mon. 5/7/12 12:27pm Parq:

Ah, serendipitous Mexican is the best kind.
  Mon. 5/7/12 12:28pm Dafydd:

Sounds like a band "The serendipitous Mexicans"
  Mon. 5/7/12 12:32pm Dafydd:

They are on the Groovey Fajitas label
  Mon. 5/7/12 12:36pm Dafydd:

Irene, I can just feel myself oozing out of my chair and onto the floor. What wonderful tunes you play.
  Mon. 5/7/12 12:44pm Parq:

The track by Stone Breath was nifty.
  Mon. 5/7/12 12:54pm Van in DC:

A Kate cover!
  Mon. 5/7/12 12:57pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Noon'all,

Irene, Thanks for making everything flow so well. I almost forgot that I'm at work!
  Mon. 5/7/12 1:00pm BDR:

Please, Kate Bush singing Kate Bush either instead or at least too.
  Mon. 5/7/12 1:01pm Looms:

Hello Irene and everyone!
@Van in DC: have you checked out the T. Blackman album yet? It's pretty well done "male sensibility" homage to KB
  Mon. 5/7/12 1:02pm Looms:

T. BlEckman, sorry.
  Mon. 5/7/12 1:06pm Van in DC:

@Looms - not yet, but have been meaning to!
  Mon. 5/7/12 1:13pm Van in DC:

Thanks for posting the links, Van!
  Mon. 5/7/12 1:39pm DEvans:

Say hello to John Hammel and Peter Biedermann from Crossroads Coffee House!
  Mon. 5/7/12 1:54pm Van in DC:

Not sure I want to know the genesis of this, uh, song ;)
  Mon. 5/7/12 2:24pm Eugene R.:

Seems like a John Hammel day - "Sci-Quest" in the morning and Serious Fun in the afternoon
  Mon. 5/7/12 2:47pm the glowing one:

is that *that* Steve Howe???
Avatar Mon. 5/7/12 2:49pm Irene:

Yeah, that Steve Howe. Album came out last year and I just got a copy. I'm sure I'll be playing more.
  Mon. 5/7/12 2:50pm the glowing one:

nice nice
  Mon. 5/7/12 2:56pm the glowing one:

that singing reminds me of the Northettes ;)
  Mon. 5/7/12 2:56pm Van in DC:

Wonderfully crafted musical sets today to help ease us into a new week. Many thanks Irene, have a great week!
  Mon. 5/7/12 9:22pm Van in DC:

Always have to remember to come back here for pictures :)
  Wed. 7/24/13 2:30am monike:

Are you guys on drugs or are you drunk? We are investigating new music to expose our students too, and we have multiple music degrees, and we can not comprehend where you are coming from.... Best wishes to you and your future endevours.
