Live session with Julie Byrne recorded February 11, 2017. Engineered by Ernie Indradat
Julie Byrne  (Interview)   Options     Julie's new album, "Not Even Happiness", is out recently on Ba Da Bing. https://badabingrecords.bandcamp.com/album/not-even-happiness 
Julie Byrne  Morning Dove   Options (live on WFMU)    The "working title" of this song was "The Singing of Bread". Love that, too. Julie's website: http://juliemariebyrne.com/ 
Julie Byrne  Follow My Voice   Options (live on WFMU)    Julie is appearing at Monty Hall 3/30, with Kevin Morby and Waxahatchee. Lucky you if you've already got tickets...sold out. 
Julie Byrne  Sleepwalker   Options (live on WFMU)    To my mind, one of the best songwriters around...Deep and beautiful poetry. Not to mention her gorgeous voice... Difficult to choose one song that seems to encapsulate what she's about on this record, but this song may be it. Upcoming tour schedule: http://juliemariebyrne.com/tour 
Julie Byrne  (interview)   Options (live on WFMU)    Please buy her albums, whether physical copies or via download. It is crucial to support artists, especially at this time. 
Julie Byrne  The Sea As It Glides   Options (live on WFMU)     
Julie Byrne  Melting Grid   Options (live on WFMU)    This song is from her first full-length, "Rooms With Walls and Windows", on the Orindal label. It's difficult for me to pick a favorite song by Julie, but this might be it. The Orindal album gathered her first two releases, both cassettes. Lucky you if you have one of those! I don't :( 
Julie Byrne  Natural Blue   Options (live on WFMU)    This was the first single released from "Not Even Happiness". If you've never seen her live in concert, go! 
Julie Byrne  (interview)   Options (live on WFMU)    The songs from this session will be posted on WFMU's Free Music Archive, hopefully within the next few weeks. Freemusicarchive.org

@Sem: Looks like a fresh dusting out there. Cold snap & windy this weekend - Winter coat again. Didn't get Jersey's 70ā„‰ but should be 50'sā„‰ midweek. Could be blizzards into April if it wants to up here, yerknow...
  Sat. 3/4/17 7:00am Irene:

Glad to hear such a beautiful Lief Vollebekk song to start my day Been meaning to check out his new album, which I heard was great.
  Sat. 3/4/17 7:00am Mark R:

Jeff Conklin says he was first turned on to WFMU when he was driving around after a late night out and he tuned the dial to 91.1 and you were playing "I Threw It All Away." And he knew he'd found a home.
Avatar Sat. 3/4/17 7:00am Sem Chumbo:

Nova Scotia had the warmest February ever recorded, and at the same time, the most snow.
With climate change comes who knows WHAT next.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/4/17 7:04am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@Sem: I remember distinctly scientists on PBS Newshour *years ago* saying that w/ higher temperatures & more moisture in the system (melting icecaps) - there would be fewer - but larger - storms. I don't know why this isn't absolutely common knowledge, or wouldn't be accepted on (obvious) evidence if it were. I mean - maybe slightly counterintuitive but not that great a challenge...
Avatar Sat. 3/4/17 7:06am Andy in Etobicoke:

We have 3 degrees Fahrenheit here in West Toronto.
Supposed to be 42 degrees Fahrenheit by Monday.
All the ducks are rather confused.

Mark, spend 'em while ya got 'em. ;)
  Sat. 3/4/17 7:11am Mark R:

It's not accepted or common knowledge because the fossil fuel industry has spend hundreds of millions of dollars funding false studies that cast doubt on the findings of 95% of the world's most respected climate scientists, paying the salaries of mouthpieces who trot around media outlets spewing their lies, and buying most of congress.
Avatar Sat. 3/4/17 7:14am Sem Chumbo:

@RevRAb: yes, indeed. That scenario (the physics of it) follows. We had 140 centimetres ( 35 inches ) in 2 storms over six days. And each came with 50-80 Kmph winds. Blizzards, in fact.
  Sat. 3/4/17 7:15am Cooh John:

Right you are, RRN63. "If you aren't apalled, you aren't paying attention." It's appears most aren't even awake. Now, back to the music.
  Sat. 3/4/17 7:17am Cooh John:

We need more critical thinkers like Mark R, SC, et. al.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/4/17 7:34am annie:

so...... in light of all the obstructions to the truth, what are common citizens doing to promote their own little world-healh situation? how can we change the attitude of our own communities so better care is kept for our immediate environment? aside from pissing in the wind of big money, who obviously doesn't care, how are we as citizens educating people on how to make our own impact less? do we use less packaging? do we buy in bulk? do we avoid using bottled water? small personal steps are still impactful, albethey barely invisible, they still exist.

Yup, buying in bulk and a Brita water filter. Baby steps.

Spreading the word to everyone I can, annie. I know it's a long haul.
Avatar Sat. 3/4/17 7:40am Sem Chumbo:

All well said, annie.
Should you subscribe to the idea that Nature is everything it can be at any one moment, and that humans are not in Nature but of it, then it follows that though our individual actions are small, their effects are cumulative.
More succinctly, as the Mahatma offered, be the change you seek.

Amen, Sem.

i practice minimalism: i re-use ziplocks, i buy in bulk, i avoid styrofoam and plastic, i ask the people at the meat counter to use my bags and leave the paper wrapper off, stupid little things... one thing i've found is that i am not the only "r/evolutionary" out there doing these things...very comforting

Dreamy vocal. Nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/4/17 8:24am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Distinctive beautiful voice - wonderful songwriting & playing...one of those talents that seems so natural & right - as if it had to be & must've always been...
Avatar Sat. 3/4/17 8:26am pierre:

adding that not only that is some great music, the sound of the live is very neat as well. Well done radio people !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/4/17 8:28am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& maybe it's redundant to say so on a 'Folk show' - but always always a special respect for those who bring all the goods w/ such a sparse setup as just one acoustic instrument & one's lonesome...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/4/17 8:30am Jeffrey Davison:

Agree, Pierre and Rev. Props to Ernie Indradat, engineer for this session, who also mastered the sound file. Great job, Ernie. Thank you so much.

Thanks to Julie for fielding a bunch of non-music biz questions, and for being so revealing in our conversation. And thanks to Ben Goldberg of Ba Da Bing.
