Mar. 14 – Spring Mix (613)

Image

On this extraordinarily beautiful March day, I’ll be spending 90 minutes in the dark playing new music from Great River Radio.  This is a spring mix of new music from all over the place.  I’ve been on a Dave Alvin thing for the last couple of weeks, so we’ll have something from him.  Did you know that Judy Garland’s great great niece is a wonderful singer named Audra Mae – she is the real thing and you’re going to like what she brings this afternoon.  Local band the Now, Now are down in Austin for the next couple of days but if you couldn’t make it to SXSW this year, you can hear the title song of their new cd “Threads” on GRR.  We’ll also have something from the new Andrew Bird, and a collaboration between Mali duo Amadou and Miriam and Santigold.  John Prine fans, tune in to hear Bon Iver doing “Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow)”.   From what some are already calling one of the best albums of 2012, we’ll hear “Young Man in America” from Anais Mitchell’s latest.  And, along the same lines, new music from the Carolina Chocolate Drops’ “Leaving Eden”, a record you’ve probably been hearing a lot about.  Produced by Buddy Miller and with the wonderful vocals and fiddling of Rhiannon Giddens, you’ll hear “Country Girl” a very personal take on the joys of living down south.

This and more coming to you this afternoon.  Please join us today from 4:15-5:45 p.m. for Great River Radio or later on the blog.  I think you’ll like it.
