Then we check out 3rd Secret, which is really a collaboration between Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic and Jillian Raye who already collaborated on two albums as Giants In The Trees.

Clara Engel

Today we experiment with sounds a little bit. Non-conventional genres and artists are on the playlist. We first start with a new project for John Dwyer, Nick Murray, Brad Caulkins, Tom Dolas and Greg Coates, which is perhaps called Witch Egg. Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds follow with a 15 minute dance dreamlike song. Sun Kil Moon is also here with another lengthy new piece. Emma Ruth Rundle teams up with metal heads Thou. Marianne Dissard has an unconventional cover of Ritchie Valens’ Come on Let’s Go. Clara Engel has a new album, and it’s always a surprise and a new, interesting sonic exploration. At the end of the show we pay tributes to Sylvain Sylvain, Phil Spector and Tom Stevens from Long Ryders.
