Live performance by Stephen Bartolomei
Eleven years ago Stephen Bartolomei began releasing songs filled with folky rock, cassette loops and rustic instruments under the alter-ego of Mal Madrigal. The Omaha, Nebraska native often performed with the likes of Bright Eyes, Azure Ray and The Good Life, to name a few well-known locals. Bartolomei recently moved to NYC, dropped his previous moniker, and released "All the Ghosts" under his own name last year. Stephen moves easily from wistful folk to electrified minor key moodiness throughout the album, captured with a light touch by Steve Albini. Stephen Bartolomei played a solo set of his songs for WFMU.

lultz, MK, session birds!
Avatar 12:09pm kat330:

@Sean: Still planning to give me a jingle? BTW, thought it rich that our President was so close to you over there when you were over here. :)
Avatar 12:10pm kat330:

My guess is there were always plenty of birds around Floyd and the Kinks during their sessions.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh, Richard and Linda, can't work for a bit....
Avatar 🥁 12:13pm KP:

Now this should be a reunion tour.
  12:13pm Sean in Cleveland, Ohio:

@Kat, yes, going to pick up a call card and give you a ring either tomorrow or Wednesday
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Irene Trudel:

Hi everybody! Just setting up for Stephen Bartolomei, who's going to play live at about 1pm. Sean, how's your cross-country trek going?
Avatar 12:18pm kat330:

@Sean: Super! BTW, we concluded Season 4 of Walking Dead yesterday. JT thinks, and I'm inclined to agree, it was perhaps the best season yet. :)
Avatar 🥁 12:19pm KP:

That birds on wire shot is stunning, Irene.
Avatar 12:21pm kat330:

@KP: Yes, it is. What's the "lone ranger" masked Gracie getting into, Irene? Seems either a salmon croquette or grilled cheese.
  12:21pm Sean in Cleveland, Ohio:

@Irene, so far so fab, I went to Great American Ball Park, The Mets were majestic, best performance I have seen from them, I am batting .1000 on Met's road trips!

Oooh, this is a pretty place.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks @KP! I was heading to work at 6:30am Saturday and it's as if they were all lined up waiting to me. www.flickr.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Irene Trudel:

@kat, that's "egg in bread." (Toad in a Hole?) Gracie's been behaving herself since then. It's been a hot week in NYC, so she's just been lazing about.
  12:34pm Sean in Cleveland, Ohio:

Starting a four and a half hour Greyhound to Detroit, starting to lose the will to live already, at least I have got this wonderful show to keep me company.
Avatar 12:39pm kat330:

@Irene: Awww.
@Sean: "Kathy, I said, as we boarded a Greyhound for 'troit" Or words appropriately to that effect.

Hello Irene, kind of a sad time but when those leaves change colour. What a picture.
  12:41pm Sean in Cleveland, Ohio:

Sorry, folks, got to go, the Wi-fi is diabolical on this bus, will listen to the archive later, have a great week everyone.

Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Uncle Michael:

I'm catching as much of Steve's set as I can around my work duties. I was given the heads up via an Omaha connection. I'll have to catch the rest on the archive.

Wow, I thought I was hearing Elena, the lead singer of "Daughter", looked up and it's Rachel Ries. Nice.
Avatar 10:35am Van in DC:

Back for more. I'm actually really liking Stephen Bartolomei, especially the older Mal Madrigal stuff.
