Live performance and chat with Shearwater (Jordan Geiger: melodica, keyboards / Kevin Schneider: upright bass, piano / Thor Harris: hammered dulcimer, xylophone, clarinet/ Jonathan Meiberg: vocals, banjo, guitar, piano / Kimberly Burke: glockenspiel, bass /Irene Trudel at right)
Noted for songs of incredible passion and beauty, Shearwater continues in their tradition of creating lovely storied soundcapes on their latest Matador disc, Rook. The cover of the album even evokes a "Hitchcock-ian" vision reminiscent of "The Birds." Before taking off on the next leg of their tour, which includes opening slots for Coldplay, Shearwater was kind enough to lay down theis nice set for Irene's show on WFMU.

Listener comments!

  3:05pm Steve:


Oh yeah, here we go...
  3:18pm C:

Wow, it sounds like a Ben Folds song.
  3:32pm cbk:

hi irene...great set...thanks
  3:37pm andy waltzer:

Beautiful programming, as always. & I enjoyed your pronunciation of the Aimee Mann album title!

Hope all is well on this bright and sunny/soft breezy afternoon in Minnesota...andy
  4:01pm Steve:

Irene, I bet you would like Cortney Tidwell, but maybe you wouldn't.
  4:03pm s:

"Harden My Heart" was Quarterflash
  4:04pm RagnarR in SF Bay:

Battle of Land and Sea was covering 80's-era (& fellow Portlanders) Quaterflash. That band's singer Rindy sounded a lot like Mrs. Benatar
  4:05pm north guinea hills:

anywhere on rue st laurent has many awesome record stores that have satiated my vinyl desires
  4:08pm andy waltzer:


That page above has a guide (with commentary) of record stores in Montreal- most look fantastic. Enjoy!
  4:11pm Irene:

Thanks, NGH! Last year I did stumble into one chain store in Montreal that I found some good local CDs. My Peter & I will right in that area. Any other suggestions for Montreal, listeners?
  4:12pm Wes:

Why does this guy sound so much like the lead singer from "Talk Talk" on the "Laughing Stock" LP?
  4:15pm Irene:

As always, Andy, you are right there with great suggestions. Glad you enjoyed the fill-in! Hope you can do it again sometime.
  4:19pm andy waltzer:

Very much my pleasure! Of course, your listeners are the kindest and gentlest souls around. I'm loving Shearwater- didn't know them before. & I was thinking the same as Wes above- Mark Hollis/Talk Talk kind of beauty to the voice.
Cheers, Irene...maybe see you or fill in in September!
  4:54pm Andy in Berlin:

Jeez, Irene - theses guys are pretty good! I never heard of them before. Thanks!
  5:03pm Trev:
