Josh Mease followed by Black Cat Blones (Rory Tregaskis)
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.

This is the last of three segments Rob Weisberg recorded with artists from chilly northern climes who showcased at the 2007 WOMEX world music convention in Sevilla, Spain. This week's guest is the engaging ensemble Svang, who play typical chromatic and blues harps, but also such exotic variations as the Harmonetta (a curious combination of the accordion and the harmonica) and the enormous bass harmonica. Svang gives us a little show-and-tell demonstration of the various harmonicas they play, and we'll hear tracks from their debut CD and their forthcoming sophomore effort.
