Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.

Options November 17, 2010: PERSEPHONE'S BEES live set!

Listen to this show:  Pop‑up player!

After 10 years in the Bay Area, Persephone's Bees recently relocated to NYC and they're bringing their edgy pop sounds to WFMU for your enjoyment. The vocals of Russian-born lead singer Angelina Moysov fall somewhere between the Cardigans and Komeda, according to the Onion A/V Club -- who also described their music as "instantly likable."

Check out this video of Perspephone's Bees at WFMU performing "We've Just Begun!"

  9:38pm hankie:

  9:39pm cactus:

Anglina needs some mids & highs on her voice so we can distinguish the words...

Cactus, it's already recorded/mixed/mastered.
  9:45pm Danne D:

Good evening and good night to you, Cheri.

Hank, I'm hoping that's a good thing...?
  10:13pm cerebellum:

depends on if hank tips strippers well or not...
  10:17pm dave:

i think persephone's bees just took home the trophy for best use of the phrase "golf courses" in a tension-building, fist-pumping shout-along lyric.
  10:17pm hank:

efd;ja ja!
  10:18pm dave:

also, i'm with everyone.
  10:18pm cerebellum:

  10:26pm calzone!:

Paper plane! Nice!
  10:42pm robert1014:

First I've heard of Persephone's Bees...they were absolutely KILLER! Tom Ayres is a great, choppy rhythm guitar player. (With every guitar player wanting to be a hero, there are too few great rhythm players in rock music.) Fantastic and wonderful.
  10:44pm efd:

So glad you enjoyed it, Robert! Totally agree about Tom, really like his style and the different sounds he uses.
  10:45pm AZ:

Groovy show, Evan! Thank you for providing the soundtrack to our take-out middle eastern food!
  10:45pm Kendall!:

yes awww yeah Electric Six. I am jammin now
  10:50pm efd:

Hi AZ, you're very welcome!
Kendall, that new E6 album is so good! Not that I need to tell you that...
  10:52pm Madi Horstman:

PB's have improved dramatically since I last heard them.
Another show I will listen to more than twice, thanks
  10:52pm The Camel Formerly Known As Camel:

Moments Away: The Competing-Against-Cheesy-Eyewitness-News Ticket Oasis
  10:54pm bribri:

"key chhange-uh"
  10:54pm Madi Horstman:

I hope PB's didn't read my last comment, they were good then too, BTW
  11:01pm Kendall!:

efd didn't even know there was a new Electric Six album but that track was excellent as usual so I will make sure to head out and get it now. I will walk down to the shop (not digitall surf to the apple store) and pick it up.
  11:23pm john:

I was just saying to Becky this sounds just like a record I'd have bought in 1986 and then the date popped up. But anyone who wants to sound like Hurrah! is aces in my book!
  11:27pm Joe B:

wow, doctor's mob! wish I could listen!
  11:32pm Joe B:

Donnie Iris update:

  11:36pm Danne D:

  11:38pm cheri:
