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 Low (*actually Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker)
 
These forbears of the "slowcore" musical movement are masters of restraint, beautifying their sound with a lack of frills. In typical fashion, they've re-released their holiday album entitled, "Christmas," conveying satisfyingly simple messages over their languidly lush delivery. Two-thirds of the ensemble (Mimi and Alan) present a live set of their holiday songs and a few new gems for WFMU.

Live performance by Jozef van Wissem
 
Jozef van Wissem performs tunes from the 1600's through the present on a beautiful reproduction 10-string Renaissance lute. Jozef's music was beautifully sonorous and minimalistic, perfect for inducing a trance-like barrier against all the Christmas craziness.

  *"Reconnaisance"

  *"Elian Gonzalez"
  *"Source of Imitation"
  *"John F. Kennedy"
