Hydra, performing live at WFMU

Live Performance by Hydra (Yula Be'eri, Rima Fand & Sarah Small)
Brooklyn’s newest vocal creature, Hydra, basks in dark, thick harmony. As they describe themselves, "I sing for you… to us… as one, as three. We speak five languages – English, Albanian, Spanish, Macedonian and HydraTongue – and we’d like to learn yours." With members Yula Be'eri, Rima Fand and Sarah Small (Black Sea Hotel), Hydra brought its vocal dance to WFMU's Love Room.

  10:11pm Time Shift lover:

beautiful reminds very vaguely of course me of the old Balkan folk songs that I heard on Dancing on the air....in 7/8 time
Avatar 10:33pm BEAVO:

Hydra was a rock band from the 70s on Capricorn records
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm Irene Trudel:

I know, BEAVO. But they're gone now. Unlikely someone will mistake this Hydra for them.
Avatar 10:47pm BEAVO:

I know just saying
Avatar 10:49pm BEAVO:

Ambrosia was a rock band from the seventies
Avatar 10:50pm BEAVO:

And they're still around
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Irene Trudel:

I know, and that's a scary thought!
Avatar 10:56pm BEAVO:

I'm enjoying your show very much and glad you're not playing rock band from the 70s!

To Lady Jane
Avatar 10:58pm BEAVO:

Nice lady Jane
  11:00pm KP:

This overblown stuff is still impressive. No one thinks big anymore
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Irene Trudel:

KP, I think that big sound is gorgeous. Lovely, interesting arrangements too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm slosl:

My god, how does a poor schmuck like me get to randomly turn on a wfmu show and just sit enchanted for an entire evening? Such good music. Thank you, Irene Trudel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks, slosl! You're making me blush! Glad you're enjoying tonight's show.

  11:27pm KP:

So that was Minnie Riperton? I was listening for the trademark high notes but couldn't catch one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm Irene Trudel:

Oh, there were a few of Minnie's soaring high notes in there, especially while the others were singing the chorus.
  11:35pm KP:

Speaking of high notes! I thought Vermillion Sands were more ambient than this. I have to start paying attention
  11:49pm KP:

High time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm Irene Trudel:

Yes, it certainly is.
  11:59pm KP:

Good night Irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am Ken From Hyde Park:

This morning, my daughter mentioned she had no suitable clothes for her concert this evening, so part of the day was spent rounding up that. The concert went well and now chilling out with the tunes. Thanks and see you next week, Irene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am Irene Trudel:

G'nite all.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:42am Sean in Bristol UK:

As always, Irene, a show of beauty and awesomeness, great set from Hydra, thank you

Avatar 1:25pm Van in DC:

What a tremendously awesome fantastic first set.
Avatar 1:36pm Van in DC:

Unicornish lol.

So in other words (so to speak ha ha), it's like what the Cocteau Twins do a lot, sound great speaking gibberish... love it.
