Live performance and chat with The Secret Sea
Back in the early 2000s, Israeli born Amit Erez started taking his first steps as a musician, infusing his music with influences from folk-rock favorites like Elliott Smith, The Decemberists and Nick Drake. Two band projects and a solo album later, Erez took over his last band's name as his own, now performing as The Secret Sea. Amit recently relocated to Portland, Oregon and just played his first NYC show. He had an extra night available, so The Secret Sea played live and premiered same new album tracks on Irene's show.

Sauntering by, perchance to miss a fine Roy Harper tune. From Bullinamingvase if memory serves. Large yay. Still, missing it I must now punch self innaface.

I'm listening at home and really enjoying your music, Secret Sea! It comforts and relaxes me after a long day, but keeps me alert.

Today I discovered Venus and the Moon from Samantha's amazing show, via archive. What a terrific track, "Die Slow". Love her show.
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 10:48pm Van in DC:

Thanks to The Secret Sea for that live set.
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 10:49pm Van in DC:

Holy cow, I thought that was Sally Oldfield at first hear!
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 10:51pm Van in DC:

If you played "Water Bearer" by Sally next, not sure you could tell the difference in voice! .... or is it just me.
  Tue. 9/20/16 10:54pm herb.nyc:

More power to the archives!
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 10:55pm Van in DC:

Okay it's been a few years. I can see the difference but still...judge for yourself:

Irene has played Peter Biedermann for many years I think.

Not sure I've heard any other FMU person play Peter, actually.

Nope, Noa's name is real! She's been on my show at least once or twice. such a lovely person and songwriter! Nice to be reminded of her connection to Amit/The Secret Sea. Jack, Peter has been on my show many times, who I met through fellow guitarist Ian Smit. Both are Jersey boys, and we've long conversations over the years about all the wonderful, weird music we like in common.
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 11:20pm Van in DC:

So today, the National Mall FINALLY reopens (for the most part) after about 2 years of renovation. I very happily walk to the middle to rejoice. A woman comes up to me: Excuse me, where is the mall? Uh, you're standing on it!! ..... she asks "Well then where are all the shops?!". Seriously. Boggle. Brain fried.

Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 11:26pm Van in DC:

I have an FMU shot glass.

And Honey Jack Daniels whiskey.

I'm happy.
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 11:29pm Van in DC:

Oh, hey! Just noticed the date!! Today is exactly SIX years since I stopped cold turkey smoking. Not a single puff in six years. That, after 2.5 packs a day.

@Irene: that is now on my calendar :)
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 11:33pm Van in DC:

27 years of smoking by the way. I was hard core. And a hairs breadth away from emphysema.
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 11:35pm Van in DC:

When I quit, I could barely breathe. My lungs were at like 18% capacity. Improved now to about 88%. Such a difference.
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 11:38pm terribilia:

that's a lot of cigarettes
  Tue. 9/20/16 11:38pm Carmichael:

Nick Drake has long been my favorite troubled soul. Beautiful music, tragic life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/20/16 11:38pm Irene Trudel:

Congrats, Van! I used to smoke cigarettes and quit more than 20 years ago. The first week was the hardest. Now I can even stand the smell. I've heard it's the hardest addiction to kick.
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 11:39pm terribilia:

every time i listen to nick drake i feel like i've lost a friend
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 11:39pm Van in DC:

I was going to use all the smoking money saved for a trip to New Zealand as a reward, but instead I gave it all to FMU. :)

Wow, that's really generous of you, Van! I always knew you were a superfan of WFMU.
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 11:42pm Van in DC:

Such joy is to be rewarded. Keep it going!!
  Tue. 9/20/16 11:44pm herb.nyc:

Redo: vg Van. Kiki, of Kiki and Herb, would hold her cigarette and tell us "smoking keeps me (pause) focused". She's a nut!
Avatar Tue. 9/20/16 11:46pm Van in DC:

Thanks so much Irene for yet another incredibly wonderful presentation. Crashing now, will catch up on the last 15 minutes as well as the first few missed tomorrow.

Good night all, and everyone treat each other well okay? And no texting and driving.

Thanks again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/20/16 11:49pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Van, and everybody tuning in tonight. Let's do it again next Tuesday, 'kay?
  Tue. 9/20/16 11:49pm Carmichael:

John Waters used to do an anti smoking bit as a theater trailer, way back in the day. The entire time, he would give off the vibe of "although I don't see what the big deal is ..."
  Tue. 9/20/16 11:52pm herb.nyc:

Oh John Waters...I'm reading his CARSICK now
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/20/16 11:53pm Irene Trudel:

John Waters is so classy. In a smarmy way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/20/16 11:55pm coelacanth:

Carmichael i remember that ad (probably from "polyester", with "odorama"!) and thinking he probably has a lit ciggie in his fingers, out of view!
  Tue. 9/20/16 11:55pm P-90:

Or smatmy, in a very classy way. Same thing, I guess.
Thanks, Irene!

wow, deep left banke!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/20/16 11:57pm Irene Trudel:

I saw Polyester in a theater with the scratch & sniff card. I had to hold my hands outside the car window on the way home, they smelled so bad afterward (and it didn't wash off easily)!
  Tue. 9/20/16 11:58pm Carmichael:

Daddy loves his Left Banke.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/20/16 11:59pm coelacanth:

haha! i remember that! we all couldn't wait to wash our hands.
...i wish i'd saved that card though.

Avatar Wed. 9/21/16 3:08pm Van in DC:

Yep, thanks again Irene! I found one of your shows from 2011 that I inexplicably missed, apparently, with a live Peter Biedermann, so I thought hmmm, I'll have to revisit that show in the next couple of days to do a prep for next week. :)
