Live performance by QQQ (Dan Trueman, violin/ Monica Mugan, guitar/ Beth Myers, viola/ Jason Treuting, percussion)
They're not some sort of power-share stock but rather QQQ is a string-driven bluegrass-leaning folk ensemble with a classical twist. The quartet's label, New Amsterdam Records, describes the ensemble this way, "Cram together a waltz à la Bill Monroe with a Norwegian wedding march, mix in some 2 and 4 and add a bit of improvisation and a post-something classical style. Now you have an idea of one QQQ tune." QQQ just released a debut album, and came to WFMU to play live.

  4:36pm Irene:

Oh, I just figured we'd need a little splash of color for spring.

Trent told me that the batteries are solar-charged during the day when the sun is out then they power the stuff at night no problem.

This Fleet Foxes song is beautiful.
  5:54pm Pearlÿ Sweets:

fleet foxes leave me cold. Just don't really do anything for me.
  5:54pm dale:

Irene, don't know if I've ever asked, but could you play something from Harmonium's "L'Heptade" again sometime?

Sure! I probably could next week if I remember to bring it in.

Irene - thanks so much for playing
Aran Ruth. I just got the single 2 weeks ago. Didn't know anyone knew who she was.

Best opening to the speakeasy ever.
  5:35pm Peter:

Irene, you have an error on your playlist. The 'Tin Hat Trio' track is not 'Intractable,' but rather 'The Comet.'
