Songs to Learn and Sing - Episode 518

Songs To Learn And Sing
103.2 Dublin City FM
Thursdays @ Midnight

Last night's show features a few new tracks: music from Wildbirds & Peacedrums; The Icypoles and Boy & Bear, as well as retrospectives on some older albums that I've blogged about recently: Denim On Ice by Denim, The Prawn Lawn by The Shanks and Science of the Sea by Jürgen Müller

This episode also features a couple of tracks from Marianne Faithfull's 2008 album Easy Come Easy Go. The album was subtitled, 18 Songs For Music Lovers and was produced by Hal Willner and features contributuions from among others: Keith Richards, Antony Hegarty, Jarvis Cocker, Chan Marshall, Sean Lennon, Nick Cave and Rufus Wainwright. I played Marianne's versions of tracks by Neko Case, Espers, Morrissey and The Decemberists. Her interpretation of these songs is inspiring and it's a great record well worth ckecking out.
