Guests

Camper Van Beethoven has returned to the music scene with the highly anticipated release of their new album La Costa Perdida (429 Records). This cohesive album is the band’s 8th studio album and first since 2004.
Erin McKeown's new album Manifestra functions as a political manifesto. In the fourteen years since her debut Monday Morning Cold, released while she was still attending Brown, McKeown hadn't quite asserted her politics directly.
By the tender age of twelve, Sera Cahoone was playing drums at a suburban Denver bar during open mic night. Discovering her passion for lyrical and musical engineering, Cahoone decided at the age of twenty-one to move to Seattle and support pre-existing artists like Carissa’s Weird, Band of Horses and the widely acclaimed musician Patrick Park.
"Foxygen blend their love of classic rock and psychedelic music in to something fresh and new and very well crafted. They manage to spin the past into the future like magicians."
Hailing from London, England, Natasha Khan is a talented singer-songwriter and multi- instrumentalist who released her third studio album The Haunted Man this past October. Adopting the stage name, Bat for Lashes, Khan's third album is riding on a wave of momentum that is clearly setting her up to an international path of success in the music world.
Aaron Neville hand-picked his favorite tracks from the doo-wop era for his recent release, My True Story, then revitalized them by adding his soulful and expressive voice and giving the classics a blues and soul vibe.
Commonly recognized as one of the most paramount innovators of ambient music, British musician, composer and producer Brian Eno is back with another successful and carefully crafted ambient installation album, Lux, released November 13. In this album, Eno continues his experiments with ambient music and integrates it with pacifying electro beats.
As frontman of the New Pornographers, Zumpano, and Superconductor, A.C. Newman has been at the forefront of some the most lauded indie power pop bands of the past two decades. As a part-time solo artist for nearly a decade, Newman has been equally well-received, though noticeably different as a songwriter. Newman’s solo work has often been more melancholic than his playful party-pop efforts with the New Pornographers, starting with his 2004 solo debut record The Slow Wonder.
The four main members of the Swedish band The Amazing play in many other successful music acts (Dungen, et al), some of which are shared projects. The overlap makes for obvious chemistry within this experimental, genre-bending folk-rock supergroup.
In light of the ongoing conflict in Northern Mali, and specifically the events of the last few days, we checked in with Chris Nolan, an organizer of Festival in the Desert. The festival takes place each January in the Sahara region where most of the recent fighting has occurred. The festival is postponed this year and in our show today, Chris Nolan elaborates on how this decision was made. He also discusses the festival’s history.
