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 Melaena Cadiz
 
Melaena Cadiz had been busily preparing for the May 20th release of her second album, "Deep Below Heaven." Cadiz has a touch of a vocal growl underscoring her delicately soulful songs. In 2013, she released a song each month that she put up on Bandcamp as "The Singles Project." For her latest, Melaena was inspired by her Photographer/husband Mikael Kennedy's small portraits of people and places in the American landscape, and by a line from a Sam Shepard story. Melaena and her band played some of these songs live.

Live performance by Leif Vollebekk
 
Canadian singer-songwriter Leif Vollebekk played a short set, recorded when he breezed through town last month. Vollebekk's vocal style is very reminiscent of Jeff Buckley, but there's a touch of Dylan's improvisational style in his delivery. Lief's songs conjure up the many places he traveled in North America in search of the perfect recorded take on the songs. Leif Vollebekk is in the middle of a tour that leads to the Newport Folk Festival in July, and dropped by to play some songs for Irene.

I'm having trouble hearing with this tinfoil had on. Hopefully, I can cut out some earholes and not lose effectiveness.
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 12:11pm gongoleer/stephan:

Hello Irene. Another week ahead and already great sounds to travel with. Thanks. Received email from Sam Moss re: his WFMU recorded show. Will listen later. Have fine days.

Digging the Flickr, Irene. Thanks!

I'm in the mood for some Sloan Wainright . . . any chance?

Hello, Irene, et al'ya! Just starting a sandwich made for lunch and listening with pleasure.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 12:16pm common:

sounds good, kat330!
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 12:18pm gongoleer:

I heard Michael Hurley is playing in NYC. Is he back living there or still in No. VT.? How do I find your Flickr?
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 12:18pm kat330:

Mmmm-hm.
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 12:19pm gongoleer:

Duh! Just figured the Flickr out.
  Mon. 5/19/14 12:21pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Kat, what's the filling?
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 12:22pm kat330:

[wiping hands first] Sean -- roast turkey with a Swiss cheese slice, tomato, lettuce, cucumber & some mayo (on rye, even though you weren't interested in that ;).

Hurley @ Union Pool, Brooklyn this week, 2 nights I think

Hi Irene, folks!
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 12:25pm gongoleer:

yes, I read that somewhere. Is that the same Hurley from Holy Modal Rounders?
  Mon. 5/19/14 12:29pm don d:

one and the same gongoleer
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 12:34pm gongoleer:

thanks don d. I thought so. He's still at it. That's great! Do you know if he still lives in VT.?
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 12:36pm kat330:

I love this harmony -- 4ths/5ths, medieval, Eastern European.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 12:40pm Van in DC:

Hi Irene. Good excuse for being late - I was at the tip top of the newly reopened Washington Monument.
  Mon. 5/19/14 12:41pm don d:

gongoleer; thought he was still in Oregon, but that's old info
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 12:42pm kat330:

@Van: Mollusk! We were out of luck when visiting DC/Baltimore last April. :, I'd been there before, but it was Philo who really lost out on his first trip to his adopted nation's capitol.
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 12:43pm gongoleer:

maybe so. I'm not really up on hm. At one time he did reside in No. VT. Thanks anyway.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 12:46pm Van in DC:

That's too bad kat! Gotta get back!

I take full advantage nearly every day, working right across the street from the Smithsonian Castle / Mall. Most people here do not; I find that just amazing that they don't
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 12:49pm kat330:

@Van: Hasn't the Monument been shut down ever since your arrival there though?
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 12:52pm Van in DC:

I was here a year before it shut down but never went. Then I transferred for a year to Dallas, TX, and the earthquake hit DC on my birthday in 2011. That closed the monument until exactly one week ago, and I've been back in DC for almost 2.5 yrs now
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 12:53pm Van in DC:

I do something touristy almost every day at lunch. A museum, a monument, White House, Capitol, etc. etc.:)
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 12:57pm kat330:

Good on ya. Reminding me that May is "Hometown Tourist" month in Lullville when many attractions have reduced prices -- um, not free here as are most "touristy" things in D.C.

Ryley Walker always sounds timeless/mature for a fairly young (very young to me) age...
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 12:58pm Van in DC:

Those ones that charge, I have yet to do them here, namely the Spy Museum and Newseum, etc...
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 1:00pm kat330:

Loving this set, Irene -- finding a connection in many of them having interesting beats / percussion.
  Mon. 5/19/14 1:02pm don d:

semi-related to Jansch: Zep being sued by Mark Andes of Spirit to try to get Randy California's name added to "Stairway.." due to its similarity to 'Taurus', on 1st Spirit album (1968)...Page re-mastering Zep albums and IV due out fairly soon..

Ms, Cadiz is continuing w/ good rhythm.

Her name is pronounced KAY-dees down yonder in Kentucky, FYI.

The Michigan side of Lake Michigan is nothing but sand. Huge dunes, even.
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 1:29pm braveness23:

Lakes are just like oceans except with smaller waves, less salt and fewer sharks
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 1:30pm Deacon Dave:

Some lakes have leaches!
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 1:30pm kat330:

@Braveness23: I had one of the best boogie board sessions once on a rough Lake Michigan, and that's comparing w/ the Pacific and the Gulf.
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 1:31pm braveness23:

Some lakes are bigger than others.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 1:31pm Deacon Dave:

Some lakes have water.
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 1:33pm braveness23:

@Kat330 my family has an island on Georgian Bay so the vast majority of my Great Lakes knowledge is limited to what I've seen here: www.google.com...

Hi evry1, nice music... who believes in Cryptid's, btw?
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 1:35pm kat330:

@B23: What the hey have they now done to Google Maps? Noticed this a few days ago. Irksome. Anyhoo, you get my SC email sent to folks yesterday?
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 1:36pm Van in DC:

Young lady I know told me yesterday she has been to 18 countries. Wowzers. I've been to 13 and am twice her age...she was just at Galapagos islands a few days ago when that ship ran aground!
  Mon. 5/19/14 1:37pm Jason in Chicago:

Come play a show in Chicago, Melaena!
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 1:38pm braveness23:

@Kat330 I haven't checked my gmail for a few days. I am in email avoidance mode. So many people want to communicate with me but so few have anything important to say. You are an exception. I'll check it out.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 1:39pm kat330:

Well, I dunno if it would come to your gmail -- depends on your SC settings -- but it should be in your mail area actually on SC. Just curious how many ever make it to the intended destinations.
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 1:46pm gongoleer:

get her to vt. as well.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 1:47pm Van in DC:

Yes, thank you Melaena & band
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 1:54pm kat330:

Ohhhh......wow! Thank you for this nod, Irene! :)

You're welcome kat!

Oiva!! as Philo would say. :)
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 2:14pm kat330:

From Cadiz to Canada to Cairo.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 2:18pm Irene Trudel:

Yeah, it's a day for mentally traveling, @kat!
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 2:19pm kat330:

Yes, I love Montreal, too! Recall riding the rapids with fondness.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 2:23pm kat330:

He seems super sweet and gentle.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 2:29pm common:

love montreal and - yes, kat330- he does sound sweet.

In his WFMU t-shirt.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 2:34pm Irene Trudel:

He certainly was a very charming guy. I loved talking to him (this was recorded a month ago).
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 2:43pm kat330:

Ahh, really like the sound of that Wurlitzer.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 2:47pm kat330:

And you were so gentle with him, Irene. Important for first times. :)
     Mon. 5/19/14 2:55pm 12539:

Thanks, Irene, Melaena, Leif, and all engineers...
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 2:58pm kat330:

Yes, kiitos to the engineers. And thanks again, ever so much Irene, for the airplay and this entire wonderful afternoon of sound. Have a very lovely Memorial Day vacation.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 3:01pm Irene Trudel:

I was (am) the engineer, and your humble host. Catch you in two weeks!
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 3:12pm Van in DC:

Missed the end, but thanks Irene
