Live performance by Fern Knight (James Wolf - violin, Jesse Sparhawk - harp/bass, Margie Wienk - vocals, cello, acoustic guitar, Jim Ayre - drums, Flying V)
On Fern Knight's new self-titled album, the listener is engulfed in imagery of pastoral scenes of folkloric greenery and of an earlier mystical age. Fern Knight is a they, not a she, a quartet bring fronted by the lovely voice of Margie Wienk. As they describe it, "The calm surface of harp, cello and violin are juxtaposed against the perfectly timed distorted squalls of a Flying V with the grounding blanket of electric bass underneath."

Live Performance by Arborea (Buck and Shanti Curran)
Arborea also returned for a second time, following the release of their second (and self-titled) album. Buck and Shanti Curran have been quietly making psychedelic acid-folk in their Maine cabin for a couple of years now. On their current Fire Museum Records release, as always, Buck and Shanti play a wide variety of stringed instruments and flutes, embellishing the sound with Helena Espvall's soaring cello on a few tracks. Arborea closed Irene's show with another live performance.

Flashing back. Not a good time for that. My clients are melting. Melting.

Irene, i cant believe you ve played ummagumma, i used to have singing lessons with the vocalist...wow..thanks a lot for Bill Frisell
Dead Corporate Eyes:

Dag, just tuning in and I missed some good stuff.

Love this music, nice for this hot, late summer evening... absolutely dreamy.

It's 22:30 and still bright in Oslo, Norway; an unusually hot summer is upon us in this green capital and I bet everyone here listening to WFMU loves Fern Knight right now.
Dead Corporate Eyes:

the yellow chair:
