Thursday, March 20th, 2008, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
From the first downbeat to the final chord, The Cordova Academy Glee Club's live show is unshakably energetic and rousing; it belongs under a revival tent in place of a rock club. In fact, at the first utterance of vocals these guys could very well incite a musical revolution. Also, a live set from Science is Dead, an indie, chamber-pop band from the Pittsburgh area will be in the studio on thursday March 20th. They are making their virgin venture out of the Ohio Valley and into the real world. They have been compared to Dinosaur Jr.

The Bowmans
Monday, March 17th, 2008, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Sharing that inexplicable "telepathic" bond as twins, Sarah and Claire Bowman have been making harmonious, folky music since a tender age. The Bowmans homebase is Brooklyn, but their music has a bit of swing to it that's hard to pinpoint. Think old-timey folk intertwined with more than a few hairs of classical and gospel music.

Monday, February 11th, 2008, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Brooklynite Josh Mease spends most of his time in a daydream nation with songs that recall no one era or genre. They simply sound like every happy memory, fond recollection, and momentary "what if?" you've ever had. Mease's recent self-titled album is a journey through the patchwork dream world he permanently inhabits, and Josh tops it all off with a voice that hints at what might have happened if Chet Baker got it on with all four Beatles.

Then a performance by Black Cat Bones, who is alleged to have either exchanged his ability to read and write for his mojo hand & can of Red Stripe or turned himself into brilliant storyteller and an expressive, elegant guitarist full of blues, folk and punk. There's a touch of Syd Barrett and Billy Bragg in Rory's songs as Black Cat Bones, and he plays live on the show.
