Live performance by Anna von Hausswolff and her band
To introduce us to her new album, Anna von Hausswolff on her website describes as a child being enchanted by family stories of a gorgeous area from her native Sweden with a complicated past. She'd heard Sweden’s traditional folk music began in this naturally beautiful place, but a momentous uprising against the country’s king left its landscapes bathed in blood. Anna calls the place "Miraculous" and has based her new album on these storied lands. von Hausswolff’s voice echoes this beauteous but ghastly past, as she swoops from whispered incantations to ghastly shrieks. Anna von Hausswolff brings her band to WFMU to play some of these epic tunes.

Hi Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Mike East:

almost put on a Renaissance record the other day. I think I went with Suzanne Vega instead. Couldn't figure out what I was feeling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I used to go to Colorado a couple times a year to visit friends. We never crossed Independence Pass, though. www.americansouthwest.net...

Yay Joan!
  9:21pm P-90:

Really good orchestration and production on this.

Sounds fantastic on air Irene!
  9:58pm JakeGould:

This is live? This is amazing. Wow! Her homepage is here: annavonhausswolff.org
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm coelacanth:

greetings Irene,Anna von Hausswolff, and all.
....sounds excellent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Irene Trudel:

Yes, Jake, all live. That's why I'm not commenting much. Lots to mix!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Chop Scott:

Again--sounds fantastic! Great work as ever Irene. Cheers!
  10:09pm Andrew:

Just got my power back. A tree down. Glad you have the archives so I can hear the beginning of the performance later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Stevel:

Very nice. (Nice mixing too!)

Oh my goodness! What have I been missing...

@Irene: Mix away. This is amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Mike East:

wow...this is fantastic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Quite good, I say!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Stevel:

Yeah, wow.
  10:27pm JakeGould:

I can believe she recorded it in 5 days because this line performance is just so pure… It’s just really her work. Wow!
  10:28pm P-90:

This band is really excellent. Her site says she's been making records since 2010, but I wasn't turned on to her; now she's on my radar, thanks Irene!
  10:31pm P-90:

I happen to know that if Anna introduces herself as a visiting artist, the Cathedral of St. John will be more than likely be happy to let her take a spin on their organ.
  10:44pm KP:

Good evening, Irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Irene Trudel:

Thank you P-90. I did mention it to Anna, and listener Lou (who brought food for them tonight) has a sister who works with the cathedral and might have a good way of introducing her.
  11:42pm KP:

Lovely spacious sounds here, Irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks KP! Sorry I've not been writing much tonight. Lotta moving parts with the band, all of whom were delightful to work with! I felt I needed to make the musical pace slow down a tiny bit.
  11:56pm John:

I really needed this music tonight. Thank you, Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm Irene Trudel:

Thank you John! And Thanks to everyone writing tonight. Catch you in two weeks-- Julie B is filling in next week.
  12:00am P-90:

Great show. Many thanks Irene and Happy Thanksgiving!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am Irene Trudel:

Same to you all!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 5:33am Sean in Bristol UK:

Wow, Anne Von Hausswolff, what an awesome set, thank you. And thank you Irene for a stellar show

Catching up a bit...
Avatar 9:40am Van in DC:

Wow, and Renaissance right out of the gate! Nice
Avatar 10:14am Van in DC:

Yes, I was thinking that some of those first set selections were related to current events...
Avatar 10:17am Van in DC:

Any photos from the live set?
Avatar 10:17am Van in DC:

"Discovery"? Does Anna know that Michael Oldfield had a FANTASTIC album by the same name? :)
Avatar 11:02am Van in DC:

Really liking the Anna von Hausswolff. Thanks for having her/them on Irene!
Avatar 11:16am Van in DC:

Just curious Irene, did Anna appear on your radar screen after NPR had her on in August, by chance? If so, I'm so glad that she did.
Avatar 11:28am Van in DC:

And we all said:

W O W !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Anna!!
Avatar 4:18pm Van in DC:

Oooh pics!

More Anna is always a good thing...
Avatar 12:42am Van in DC:

Wow, that "Come Wander With Me".... holy cow. Such passion...
