Live Performance and chat with Matt Keating
  Back in the 1970's a string of unusuallly introspective, melancholic songwriters had their day in the sun-- people like David Ackles, Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman and Tim Hardin--- and Matt Keating is a modern-day practitioner of that fine tradition. Straddling the line between Americana and pop, Keating has just released "Wrong Way Home," his 10th collection of catchy story-songs. Matt Keating dropped by WFMU to play live.

Listener comments!

  12:02pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Hi Irene,
Great to be listening to you on EST instead of GMT
  12:05pm Van in DC:

Yay, Roy! Hi Irene
  12:06pm Mariano:

NO. F-in. WAY, Irene! I haven't heard this song in years, the mid-90s when I lived in the South of France, and some English friends introduced me to RH. You've totally time-warped my morning! Oh, and good morning!
  12:09pm mike noble in dc:

has everyone clocked their 90 minutes of soundtap time yet today?
  12:11pm Mike East:

workin' on it right now, mike noble.
  12:11pm Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Israel, Earth, Milky Way):

hi Irene
what a wonderful set so far ;)
  12:12pm avant pp reguard:

ive clocked in to soundtap but yeah everyone should clock into soundtap so wfmu is awarded greatest non commercial station in the world. http://soundtap.com/madness
  12:12pm Van in DC:

Just found out about it about 10 minutes ago...working on it now (the soundtap thing)
  12:13pm don:

Re-discovered Tommy Flanders- the Moonstone LP this past w/e; reminds me of Hardin and Van's 'Astral Weeks'. And now Ackles! Irene has the best musical taste-hear hear!
  12:14pm b:

big smiles from oklahoma...all such fluffy clouds much appreciated...clouds here not so pleasant today.
  12:16pm Mike East:

was just watching the Nilsson movie last week. Made me want to run out and pickup this record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Irene:

Hi Everybody! Glad to have you here on this fine spring day! Matt Keating is up at 1pm with a few live tunes.
  12:19pm zoot:

Thanks for the Harry, Irene. I hope everyone has seen the wonderful doc about him.
  12:20pm b:

i shouldn't complain about thunderheads in okla....ending long drought....irene providing great soundtrack to go with....zoot, i've seen the wonderful doc about him indeed, very special....
  12:20pm glenn:

is it just me, or does this soundtap sign up process take forever?
  12:20pm b:

not just you
  12:21pm Mike East:

@glenn - I had to try it a couple times - the first try got no response.
  12:21pm glenn:

and also. -- http://dailyotter.org/post/19457362171/river-otter-makes-friends-with-dog-video
  12:25pm c2677:

Irene, any chance of Alasdair Roberts ever coming back to play on your show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Irene:

Hey, I'd love to have Alasdair Roberts on again. I think schedules didn't work out when the last album came out. I'll look into it.
  12:30pm c2677:

I think the grad city website said he has another release soon, so maybe he'll have another trip out to the US.

FYI - Ever since you had him on your show years ago, I've bought every one of his albums - and have really enjoyed his music. ( I even listen to a recording of his studio set from your show - which I think sound better than the album version of some of those particular songs!) So THANK YOU Irene!
  12:31pm c2677:

oops. drag city
  12:33pm Deepak:

one more hour and then i'll go to bed, will have to catch up in the morning.
  12:34pm Van in DC:

That was a perfect set to welcome in Spring :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Irene:

Alasdair Roberts seems to have a new album with Mairi Morrison out now and is touring the UK and Spain. Not here yet though. I'll have to get the album asap!
  12:45pm Brian en Angleterre:

Ah missed David Ackles been out digging in the sunshine. And digging the sunshine.
  12:55pm zoot:

Nilsson and Newman on the same show! Yowza we are lucky. What's next, something from Nilsson sings Newman?
  12:56pm kat330:

Catching up here. Hi, Irene and all! Brian, so what's the dirt? What's going down, anyway? And Glenn, what makes you so otterly happy today? :)
  12:57pm glenn:

the daily otter is my new favourite thing.
  12:59pm kat330:

Nilsson, Newman, Cohen -- a trifecta of tuneage indeed.
  1:01pm kat330:

@glenn: They are seriously adorable creatures. The winning photo on a wildlife mag -- we get so many, not sure which one -- was sure to brighten the darkest day (listen up, Leonard!). I'll see if I can locate a link to it.
  1:02pm trolly mctrollerson:

new to this show - is Irene like super-chill chillaxing super untaxin to the max?
  1:03pm Van in DC:

Loved that new Cohen song!
  1:10pm jtm:

http://soundtap.com/madness - help WFMU win this contest and listen to Irene while you're at it.
  1:11pm Jay/ London:

checking in .. yes was playing leonard cohen cd last night just love it
  1:15pm kat330:

@jtm: If you don't sign up for an account, does the listening still count?
  1:17pm Jay/ London:

what a lovely song :)
  1:19pm Randy in NC:

The really nice thing about the cardboard CD covers is that if you drop them, they don't break.
  1:21pm Jay/ London:

i buy L.Ps when i can
  1:33pm Van in DC:

@kat330: their FAQ has this:

Users must be logged in to score listening time for the station and each user can score a maximum of 90 minutes per day per station.
  1:39pm kat330:

@van: Ah, well, I'm happy to have that streaming in the background, but I've maxed out on online account signage. I streamed it for a bit during the last show, and the site was ticking numbers/times in such a way I thought maybe it'd work without an account. Thanks for a response!
  1:39pm Troll Biter:

@ Trolly: by no means an expert re: Irene/her show, but today's show appears fairly representative, which is to say, balmy, breezy and bitchin'. Visit her webpage: http://www.wfmu.org/~irene/
  1:40pm kat330:

I'm reminded of Ron Sexsmith listening to Matt's vocals at moments. And that's a huge compliment.
  1:41pm kat330:

Yikes, what a synch! :)
  1:43pm Confused:

Liking the Matt Keating songs & interview, but until this show I think I had confused him with a NZ-based singer-songwriter ... any help? Possibly David Kilgour but I think even my frazzled brain could keep them separate. Somebody else?
  1:46pm Chris from DC:

This is some catchy stuff. Definitely hear a touch of Michael Chapman.
  1:49pm Michael Shelley:

Sounding excellent!
  1:55pm cuts:

Was Matt Keating in a band of Ithaca College students? I remember a band called Circle Sky and I think he was in that band.
  1:58pm Brian en Angleterre:

Like it Matt.

Kat, just got the interent radio going so not watching a screen. Digging the ground & the music.
  1:59pm Brian en Angleterre:

Big Ron?
  2:01pm kat330:

@Brian: I understood on both counts. Just wondering WHAT digging the ground is in prep for. Myself, I transplanted a dozen tiny seedlings for their next stage indoors.
  2:03pm Van in DC:

Thanks to Matt for that nice live set!
  2:03pm Brian en Angleterre:

Ordered a copy of Tiltawhirl earlier today. Looking forward to hearing it.

Potatoes, traditionally supposed to plant them on Good Friday but as it moves every year it does not really work. When they have chitted, time to go into the ground.
  2:06pm Brian en Angleterre:

Chitting means encouraging them to sprout.
  2:11pm kat330:

@Brian: I inferred so. :) Heirloom tomatoes are my terre-y toil today. Our garden has never been very successful with root veggies -- green onion do okay -- so we keep it leafy.
  2:14pm don:

Maybe Spider is listening! Lives upstate-
  2:15pm Brian en Angleterre:

Has serious problems with toms this last few years due to damp weather. Lost 36 plants the other year. Nothing like picking a tom fresh off the vine. Need a greenhouse, ours is mainly brick. Ho ho.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Irene:

cuts, sorry i didn't see your note sooner. Matt did mention he was in Circle Sky.
  2:37pm Julie:

this beautiful song is played by someone called Metal??
  2:39pm the glowing one:

Metal Mountains is what they are called I think
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Irene:

Oops! It's Metal Mountains. Good Catch Julie!
  2:40pm Van in DC:

Gorgeous that was.
  2:41pm Julie:

haha they still have Metal in their name. who'd have thought. @Van wasn't it? So much loveliness on Irene's show.
  2:41pm Mariano:

Wow, Irene: amazing show today! Agree with everyone, Metal Mountains was great!
  2:42pm Van in DC:

Hi Julie! Yes, always a wonderful place to be on Monday afternoon, right here :)
  2:54pm Skirkie:

Only thing I don't like about Dr. Dog is they only ever play Terminal 5 when they're in town.
  2:55pm Looms:

Hello there!
Just have joined the WFMU Soundtap support crew.
  2:57pm Van in DC:

Strong finish!

Loved the show Irene...beautiful from top to bottom. Many thanks.
  2:59pm kat330:

This is really nice. Thanks for a fine afternoon of music.
  2:59pm v k:
