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.)

good afternoon Irene...van.

one of my favorite radio programs of the year

Hey Irene, Happy New Year one and all
Avatar Mon. 1/6/14 12:07pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Everybody! Happy New Year! Hope you all enjoyed the holidays. We're going to hear a sampling of my favorite music from the past year today.
  Mon. 1/6/14 12:09pm Yair yona:

Hi Irene
  Mon. 1/6/14 12:09pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

I agree, Van, this is going to be a cracker of a show.
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 12:09pm Mike East:

This yo la tengo album is one of the best records of the last ten year, I think.

Avatar Mon. 1/6/14 12:12pm Irene Trudel:

Hi van, common, v k, Sean,Yair and Mike. Yeah, I think this'll be a good one. Hope to fit everything in. If not, I'll add honorable mentions after the show.
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 12:15pm Sem Chumbo:

Hiya, Irene. Just right for right now.
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 12:20pm kat330:

Finally made it -- Hi, Irene!

The cold (no snow though!) has got me in slo-mo, and I'm way behind on about a half-dozen projects for the day. So I'll be all ears and very little hands-on today. Thanks in arrears and in advance for all the beauty you're playing for us this first Monday of 2014! HNY!
  Mon. 1/6/14 12:23pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Kat, it's all on the news over here about the weather, if I remember you live right in the middle of the cold blast, what is the temperature with at the mo?
Avatar Mon. 1/6/14 12:26pm the glowing one:

I got the cold. Not the arctic one but the one that makes your nose stuffy. Which makes me wonder if there are any recordings where the singer had a cold and you could tell...
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 12:26pm kat330:

@Sean: They predicted possibly 5-8 in. of snow (we had none already) last night, but we escaped that. We're about the southernmost portion of the Midwest, but it's still around 0-degrees. It was about 42 degrees last night at dinnertime! And then it steadily dropped in temps and kept dropping after we got up at 6 am. Still, all in all, we're very lucky.
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 12:30pm kat330:

@Sean: Just went to NOAA and it says -17 degrees C. So we're actually at 0 + 2 degrees. I feel warmer already! ;)
  Mon. 1/6/14 12:32pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

That's pretty chilly, Kat, I feel positively balmy here!
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 12:33pm KP:

Hey. Irene. Happy New Year!
  Mon. 1/6/14 12:33pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Irene, got an email from Tim Smith, the Director of 'Freeform or Death'. Looking positive for a release this year.
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 12:34pm KP:

I'll take Freeform!
  Mon. 1/6/14 12:36pm van:

Been waiting for that film!
  Mon. 1/6/14 12:40pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Olivia Chaney, lovely and a great reminder to chase up the people for my ticket when she plays later this month.
  Mon. 1/6/14 12:51pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Gorgeous set, Irene
Avatar Mon. 1/6/14 12:51pm Irene Trudel:

Hi kat, KP, Sem & the glowing one. Hope you're all keeping warm by the glow of the radio tubes (or computer hard drive, whichever is warmest). Sean, I know the WFMU documentary is nearing completion. We'll definitely post more about it when the release date comes.

Sarah is at tiny Green Note in Camden, London in February. Great venue, very intimate.
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 12:58pm Brian in UK:

@don d the first time you breathe out is when you leave The Green Note.
  Mon. 1/6/14 1:02pm don d:

@Brian in UK- was just there for Tir Na Nog (have also seen Robin Williamson there). It can get hot, very hot, but it's a friendly place where the club seems to actually like the music and the audience.
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 1:20pm Brian in UK:

Don d I wanted to see Gurf Morlix last month but he was on the same day as Lonnie Holley and I had already seen Gurf there was no contest.
  Mon. 1/6/14 1:30pm van:

What a great set!
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 1:30pm dale:

perfect mood music for a dreary afternoon. this set reminds me of some amazing blondel from the 'england' album
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 1:37pm Mike East:

The William Tyler album that I bought last year is on my list of best music that I purchased last year...although I think it came out in 2010. Music fandom means constantly having to play catch up.
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 1:39pm herb.nyc:

yay CHRIS! i saw him & band do a free show at living room several months ago. maybe they played this song. and it's so cute, when chris is really into a song live, he shakes his head in a "no" motion. when the show was over, he removed his guitar from against his body & there was a nice biiiig sweat stain on his shirt. a badge of honor.
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 1:44pm YETI BOB:

2013 was a great year for acoustic guitar. Irene, the set you just played included 3 of my favorite records from last year! (GJ, WT, CJ). Great set, we're really happy to be staying inside and listening to this lovely music.
Avatar Mon. 1/6/14 1:51pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Yeti Bob! I do have to agree, it was a great year for the acoustic guitar and people who use it in interesting ways.
  Mon. 1/6/14 1:56pm van:

On a side note, it seemed to be a pretty good year for classical guitarists as well from what I was able to hear around these parts on the airwaves.
  Mon. 1/6/14 2:06pm Brian:

Just great music today - thanks!
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 2:11pm Guido (Cologne):

Haven't heard most of the show, but find 3 albums from my own collection here on the playlist:
William Tyler (thanks to WFMU-airplay ... favourite music to work by)
Glenn Jones (via Fahey-connection ... have all his albums, better than any Cul De Sac)
Minnie Riperton (some ten years ago)
  Mon. 1/6/14 2:24pm adam:

great tunes today, thanks
  Mon. 1/6/14 2:24pm Mike East:

I just googled Juana Molina to try to find out any of the gear she uses and my computer crashed. Somebody wants to keep me in the dark
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 2:26pm kat330:

Such a great strangeness to this track! Xenia's well-named.
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 2:29pm Webhamster Henry:

Rebecca Martin lives nearby here in Kingston. She has a wonderful voice!
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 2:30pm Guido (Cologne):

@Mike
... maybe the artst's website?
Recently I ordered a MP3 download from Ora Cogan.
She send me a download link.
The attempt to download resulted in a malware alert ... hehe

Juana Molina is the thing on the way to my collection.
One of the WFMU-DJ-fav in general it seems.
Avatar Mon. 1/6/14 2:30pm Irene Trudel:

@Mike, I mixed a live session with her for Soundcheck a few years ago. I know she uses a lot of looping pedals, a small mixer and a classical-style guitar with a pickup.
  Mon. 1/6/14 2:33pm van:

Yes, that Juliana Barwick is just wonderful...
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 2:34pm kat330:

Let's hear it for the ladies! Great set, Irene!

Bowie channels Scott Walker..

B23 here! What did I miss?
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 2:41pm Mike East:

@Irene - that's awesome. I was curious about the specific looping pedal(s) she uses. I've been testing out different options...thinking about a purchase...in the future.
  Mon. 1/6/14 2:41pm don d:

andymoprhic-wrote mine before read yours--!

B23 - several sets of awesomeness :)

A friend of mine is adept looper (of Frippertronics generation) and produces live-looping-festivals.
  Mon. 1/6/14 2:43pm abutthegreat:

Agreed, I thought I was listening to Scott Walker. And late scary Scott Walker.
Avatar    Mon. 1/6/14 2:43pm kat330:

Bowie channeling Walker at moments; Wilson channeling Buckley at moments.

12539, the upgraded Boss RC-30 is impressive.

thank you for this wonderful program, Irene - will definitely listen again fireside some fine evening (via archives)

Yes, this is one to revisit indeed. Thanks, Irene!
Keep warm and happy, people!
