The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

Live Performance by Bridget St.John with Mick Gaffney
 
Imagine hearing Nico's dark, smokey voice beautifully in tune and you'll touch the melodic tip of what's so gorgeous about British folkie Bridget St. John. Originally Bridget recorded for John Peel's short-lived Dandelion label, which promptly gave her the well-deserved label of "chanteuse." Critical acclaim did not equal commercial success , and St. John seemed to vanish, only to re-emerge in the NYC area with some live performances. Bridget played later in the week at Tonic on a bill with guitarist Jon Rose, and she dropped by WFMU for a rare live performance, aided and embellished by guiatrist Mick Gaffney.

Live Performance by Rockdove. (Sandy Bell, Laura Cromwell, Irene, Alice Bierhorst and John Mettem)
 
Brooklyn-based Rockdove, an ensemble which hasn't been in existence all that long, says their debut performance silenced a rowdy local bar crowd with the quiet power of their music. The folks in Rockdove describe themselves this way: "Close your eyes, and take in the otherworldy sounds of Rockdove. You'll hear Patsy, and Loretta, and the Band, and Aretha and Tom Petty and Nick Drake too. But mostly you'll hear music sung with the soul of a gospel choir, because darlin', they BELIEVE in this music..." Former Goats-in-Trees mates Alice Bierhorst and John Mettem were joined by Sandy Bell and Laura Cromwell as Rockdove came out to WFMU to play.
