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 Marissa Nadler (vocals, guitar) with Janel Leppin (cello, vocals)
 
Eternally ethereal singer Marissa Nadler dips deep into the dark spirits for her song inspirations but presents them as comforting moments and stories. Nadler's flirtation with the gothic seems to come from ghostly songs in the vein of Edgar Allen Poe and murder ballads. Marissa's songs are atmospheric, austere, and starkly sincere. Marissa Nadler brought her gorgeous, atmospheric folk, along with cellist Janel Leppin, to WFMU's love room.

Haunting, this -- cello mixed so nicely.

Helo Irene & all Trudelites. I have things to do...but I CANN0T remove myself from this wonderful event!
     Mon. 6/16/14 1:09pm 12539:

Thank you, Marissa and Janel.
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 1:09pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Yes, thank you, Marissa and Janel
     Mon. 6/16/14 1:09pm 12539:

(Irene, Google tells me Janel's last name is spelled "Leppin.")
Avatar Mon. 6/16/14 1:12pm Irene Trudel:

Ah, thanks @12539! I didn't get a chance to check it with Janel before we started the live set. I'll change it now.
Avatar Mon. 6/16/14 1:15pm Chris from DC:

You should have Janel and Anthony on sometime.
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 1:15pm kat330:

Lovely, Marissa & Janel -- thank you!
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 1:58pm kat330:

Brazilian for the World Cup I imagine, but it's nicely reviving memories of seeing Michael Palin's "Brazil" travelogue last night.
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:00pm kat330:

Brazilian motif for the World Cup I imagine, but it nicely brings to mind images from Michael Palin's "Brazil" travelogue on PBS last night.
Avatar Mon. 6/16/14 2:00pm Irene Trudel:

Yes, @Kat, Peter & I stumbled across the series on PBS last week. I presume it was rolled out just in time for the World Cup. I always liked Palin's Travelogues.
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:01pm kat330:

Oops, don't know what happened with my page -- it seemed I had lost the first attempt at the post. Oh well. Now you have a slightly different version. :)
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:03pm kat330:

@Irene: JT & I both called what the punchline would be when Palin asked the soothsayer about England ever winning the Cup, and there was that long, dramatic build-up. Heh!

Hey Irene! All! Great Spirit trax!

Spirit's 1st is great!
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:25pm V Priceless:

hey Guido! sign me up for the first 4 Spirit albums -all fab, IMO!
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:25pm kat330:

Was it Spirit Zeppelin nipped the Stairway riff from? [not a student of much of the rock of my era]
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:26pm Guido from Cologne:

Must check the live set from the archives later. The last bars I heard were inspiring
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:26pm V Priceless:

yeah..coming up in the intro of next track!
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:28pm kat330:

I enjoyed Stephen Colbert's report on the riff rip-off.
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:29pm Guido from Cologne:

Let's suspect those copycats stole everything! They do not deserve just treatment! How can Jimmy Page sleep in peace?
Avatar Mon. 6/16/14 2:35pm Irene Trudel:

I was actually a bit miffed at Colbert. Spirit is a band I've always loved and thought they never quite achieved the recognition they deserved. His putdown was a bit of an oversimplification of the issue and the differences between the two bands. What I'm most surprised at is that the members of Spirit didn't try to sue a lot sooner.
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:37pm kat330:

@Irene: Oooh, guess I was only catching the bit sideways. I'm always doing at least two things at once. I had thought he was championing Spirit!
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:44pm kat330:

One thing is becoming apparent, Irene: We are catching many of the same things on the boob tube! :)
  Mon. 6/16/14 2:51pm don:

Re Spirit, at first, Randy didn't want to sue but later, when asked, he hoped that Zep would recognize the source. He died in '97 so that put an end to that until now. Randy wrote Taurus when he was 16 or 17. I think Andes is spearheading this suit. Also, it was Zep who opened for Spirit in an early USA tour, maybe Zep's first USA tour. Page was like a sponge; on a tour with a latter version of Yardbirds, he went to a club in NYC where he heard Jake Holmes doing 'Dazed and Confused', a song written by Holmes. Jake sued and settled with Zep within the last 3 or 4 years.
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:54pm kat330:

Thanks for the details, don. But seriously, I really thought Colbert was making more fun of Zeppelin than the other way around. I will have to go find that bit again and watch with undivided attention.
     Mon. 6/16/14 2:55pm 12539:

Thanks, Irene the DJ, and also Irene the Engineer.
Avatar Mon. 6/16/14 2:56pm Andrew Waterloo:

Have to remember that Colbert's character is usually on the side of what he's attacking.
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:57pm Mike East:

great selection from the Courtney Barnett record. Been in heavy rotation at the East home.
Hey kat!
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 2:59pm kat330:

@Andrew: I'm well aware of that, but geez, I recall his playing the riffs one right after the other where it was crystal clear how similar, and I recalled his expression indicating he was disappointed in Zep. Well, I'll just have to see where my mind wandered back to whatever else I was doing.
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 3:00pm kat330:

Hey, Mike! Been a while -- so many films Philo and I have been seeing since last chatting. And the show's over. :,

Thank you, Irene, for bringing us beautiful live and recorded sounds!
Bye, all!
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 3:00pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Great show, Irene, thank you.
Avatar    Mon. 6/16/14 3:02pm V Priceless:

@ Don and Irene - very well stated! @ Irene - I suspect the SC report's tilt on Spirit is probably due in large part to his writers' ignorance of the band's music! Not uncommon, sadly! Cheers!
