Songwriting Seasonings Menu (03-09-12)

This time I’ve selected some choice ingredients to showcase some excellent emerging songwriters, along with a few classics in the mix as well. This episode of our radio program is title Songwriting Seasonings and I have flavors in the realms of folk, rock, alt country, story-tellers, a blended psychedelic tune, and a new take on ska from a great new band. Fun, The Lighthouse and the Whaler, Jesse Thomas and a whole lot more. I have a culmination of folk and singer-songwriter flavors from old and new artists like Joshua James and Harry Chapin. You’ll be introduced to a brand new band called Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds with an album coming out soon titled Pound Of Dirt. Their style combines seasonings of rock, blues, jazz, and a sprinkle of ska. I also want to introduce you to another new band out of Australia called The Beards, and yes facial hair plays a large role in their act. They have 2 full-length albums out and a recently released single. What impresses me about their work is not just how stellar they are as musicians, but all of their songs have one theme-beards. As a man known for his facial hair, I have a respect for this kind of motif, if you will. Most of the time presented in humorous ways, they have a fun video you can view below. Also music from Iron & Wine’s Kiss Each Other Clean release that takes his iconic folk-driven songwriting and adds layers of instrumentation that redefines his sound. Enjoy!
