Live Performance by Elysian Fields (Jennifer Charles: vocals, toy piano; Oren Bloedow: guitar, foot percussion; Danton : bass)
With sultry vocals and keyboards by Jennifer Charles and Oren Bloedow providing guitar, vocals and a host of other instruments, as Elysian Fields they have been quietly releasing their jazzily eclectic albums since the 1990s. Jennifer and Oren were drawn together through the early incarnation of The Knitting Factory where Jennifer worked. And Oren's worked with the likes of Henry Threadgill, David Murray, Sonic Youth and Jeff Buckley, who also had ties to the old Knit Fac. Their latest disc is "For House Cats And Sea Fans" and Elysian Fields dropped by to play some of those tunes for WFMU.

Hi Irene, hello to kat and everyone

this is soothing to my 6pm RSI

Looking forward to the live set from Elysian Fields

Here! Hi! Happy Monday! Looking forward to all to come!
Avatar 12:07pm Sem Chumbo:

Good afternoon, Irene, and all. How I do love this string driven thing.
Avatar 12:07pm Van in DC:

Getting a 404 page not found from Flickr from that photo...anybody else able to get to it? Might be my work...

I get no 404, all picture here.

Elysian Fields - if they play 'Duel with Cudgels' then my day will be made

Good glorious afternoon to you, Irene

good day!

Did anyone else catch Laura Cantrell's live performance yesterday, at the record fair? I thought she was great

@? : Hello back and to all the Mysterians, too!

Sorry Kat, that was me, I forgot to sign in before posting
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Irene Trudel:

Hi all! Setting up for Elysian Fields so I just saw this. I'm getting the picture here at WFMU. Try refreshing your browser. If not, I'll switch it out with a link.
  12:18pm don:

So great to hear Melaena-can't get enough of this gifted artist.
Avatar 12:18pm Van in DC:

It's okay, probably just my work filtering it or something. They do weird things with internet access attempts sometimes. Just happy I can get to WFMU!
Avatar 12:18pm kat330:

@Irene: Getting the picture fine here, but you might eventually like to add another "en" within enlightenment. :)

@Sean: I sort of surmised it might be you.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Mike East:

the picture shows up, but when I click on it to follow the link to flikr, I get a 404 message as well...was hoping to checkout more record fair pics
Avatar 12:20pm Van in DC:

Ha, same here Mike East. I see the photo just fine in the browser but I was clicking on it trying to see more :)
Avatar 12:22pm Van in DC:

So off of Irene's actual Flickr page, the link shows as:

Avatar 12:22pm Parq:

I have the same 404 message when I click on the photo as it appears on the playlist. I was able to get Irene's photo stream (as it turns out, Flickr is one of the few popular image sites not banned by my employer's porn-phobic IT dept.) by searching for Irene Trude Flickr on Google.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Irene Trudel:

Well, I haven't gotten around to posting mine yet. Might be better to go to Flicker and search directly.
Avatar 12:23pm kat330:

Fay's song could be a graduation speech. I'd add: drink plenty of water and always wear sunscreen.
  12:28pm Andrew:

This is very soothing as I recover from hand surgery. Just what I need today. Started typing this at the Robin Scott song---running at a slow pace---you're now three songs on.
Avatar 12:29pm kat330:

Sometimes a saw can be played to sound like a human voice. She sings to sound like a saw. Haunting.
Avatar 12:32pm gongoleer:

Irene I have a few more photos which I grabbed off screen and can send to you for use. How should I do that?
  12:35pm don:

Mike Stuart Span/Leviathan- now that is obscure, but still sounds pretty good 45+ years later, doesn't it?
Avatar 12:45pm kat330:

This Pallett suits my musical palate and palette quite nicely.
Avatar 12:50pm nah:

@kat: Nice. Also, mine too.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Sean in Bristol UK:

This is turning into a fab set
Avatar 12:54pm kat330:

Noticed many arrangements since the get-go are thick with violins. It's a string-saturated show today. :)
Avatar 12:57pm Van in DC:

wonderful set
Avatar 12:57pm kat330:

Perhaps it's a case of older record fair finds. Once upon a time, string arrangements -- synth or not - were all the rage.
Avatar 12:58pm nah:

Great set! Off to grab some dinner, will definitely return to the archive of this!
Avatar 1:02pm Van in DC:

Yeah, the Parallelograms album from '70
Avatar 1:03pm Van in DC:

Linda Perhacs just had a nasty fall and had to cancel UK tour dates

Avatar 1:23pm thunderish' Jay:

whats with the "give the drummer radio" second stream on the main page? something all drummers should know about?
Avatar 1:26pm thunderish' Jay:

WFMU experimentation or a must have concrete drummer resolution
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm Mike East:

@thunderish jay - WFMU has several alternate streams...most of the time, they are not live DJ's, but the Give the Drummer Stream has scheduled live DJ slots each week. right now is one of those slots
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Great set from Elysian Fields, any chance of heading our way?
Avatar 1:28pm thunderish' Jay:

nice ... thanks ... and probably theres info on the alternative streams on the main page ...
  1:30pm mike east:

Yes, the left column under "listen" on the main page
Avatar 1:30pm thunderish' Jay:

im stoked .. i mean i never thought of a rradio this way
Avatar 1:30pm thunderish' Jay:

like rrrrrrrradio ..... amplifying the magnet to attach the all ears flys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Irene Trudel:

Going back a few minutes, sorry to hear that about Linda, Van! She looked a bit fragile when I saw her last year.
Avatar 1:45pm Van in DC:

Thank you Elysian Fields! Very enjoyable set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm common:

pretty stuff!
Avatar 2:00pm thunderish' Jay:

i would like to have an idea of the band disposable..like some pics would be good

Avatar 2:06pm the glowing one:

i did not recognize this as Jobim, what a cool track!
Avatar 2:25pm Sem Chumbo:

Beautiful tones and textures. So simply fine.

Avatar 2:33pm the glowing one:

“Where Are the Arms” is a fabulous album. “Parts of Speech” is my favorite track.
Avatar 2:42pm Van in DC:

Live Marissa Nadler is always welcome!
  2:43pm Jack:

Great song, folk with an edge, be great to hear her on the show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Irene Trudel:

@Gongoleer, that would be a lot of fun! you never know... Maybe some day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm SeanG:

fun interview with Clay Pigeon yesterday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Irene Trudel:

Muchas gracias thunderish Jay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Irene Trudel:

Yes, Sean! He is so much fun to talk to! His mind flits around like a hummingbird as he interviews you.
Avatar 2:54pm Van in DC:

For some bizarre reason this Home to the Heron kind of was reminding me of a tune I heard on, um, Jeffrey's show I think, "The Doubted". Gotta be just me though.
  Swag For Life Member 2:54pm 12539:

Thanks, Irene (& guests).
Avatar 2:55pm the glowing one:

Yeah, while people answer a question he's coming up with a totally different question based on a tiny detail from that answer. Often he doesn't even let people finish their answers. It's like his mind works in double speed but he's totally smooth the whole time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Irene Trudel:

Hey, I just figured out why the photo link didn't work. The picture was uploaded from my phone and somehow made it in as "private." I've changed it so you all can use the link. Thanks for tuning in today!
Avatar 2:58pm Van in DC:

Ha, maybe part of it was that "Sheron"..."Heron"...hmmm... anyways thanks Irene! Thanks again to Elysian Fields!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Irene Trudel:

I'll post more photos later today. I've got quite a backlog, including some from live sessions at WFMU. Thanks All!
Avatar 3:00pm the glowing one:

Thanks, Irene.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Thank you, Irene
Avatar 3:04pm Van in DC:

Oooh, pics!

Avatar 1:38pm Van in DC:

I was popping back in to see if the photos were up but looks like not...over at Flickr maybe?
