Noah Byrd on Listening Lyrics Friday May 27, 2016 at 4PM

Noah Byrd is back in the studio with us. Noah is a local songwriter (indie rock) and will be introducing to us his new EP Feathers. With a voice compared to Elliot Smith and Bradley Nowell, he combines melancholic vocals with punk-influenced acoustic guitar, giving an aggressive undertone to his otherwise laid-back sound.

All Listening Lyric shows are live on Fridays from 4:00PM to 5:00PM (PST) on KDRT 95.7FM. For those outside the listening area, the show will stream live online at KDRT.org . It will also be available for replays in the show archives or as an podcast on iTunes under Listening Lyrics.

Gary Chew's Third Streaming - March 20, 2016

Gary has programmed more music this week that channels the Third Stream well.

Motion-picture love themes have about ten minutes time: Alex North, John Barry, and Andre Previn give 3rd Streaming a romantic touch with music from Spartacus, Out of Africa, and The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. That's music from the 60s and the 80s.

Leonard Bernstein's early piece from 1942 will be played by Stanley Drucker and Leonid Hambro. That's Bernstein's "Sonata for Clarinet and Piano."

Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu titled his 20th-century work "Three Ricercari" even though the term "ricercare" comes from the Baroque Era. The Czech Philharmonic Orchestra performs it.

"Impressions of the Puna" by Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera (pictured) is another piece you'll want to hear. "Puna" refers to the high-altitude grasslands of South America's Andes Mountains. Ginastera's work is totally beautiful and played as much so by the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

Live DiRT: The Small Glories Live May, 19, 2016

More specifically, Cara Luft is the Juno Award-winning co-founder of the Wailin’ Jennys. She has a solid reputation as an exciting live performer on the guitar and the clawhammer banjo. JD Edwards has a voice that ranges from gentle and melodic to fierce and powerful, truly defying categorization. Together, these two performers are a powerhouse you'll be hearing a lot about in the coming months. The Small Glories new release is Wondrous Traveler.

Album Review: Rain Crow, by Tony Joe White

The King of Swamp Rock, Tony Joe White, has returned for his 19th studio LP over his illustrious 50 year career, and the haunting guitars and deep voice that have defined both White's sound and the genre are still as mysterious and engaging as ever. During his many years of work, Tony Joe has worked with artists as varied as Eric Clapton, Tina Turner and the Foo Fighters and toured with Steppenwolf, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Roger Waters, but on Rain Crow, it feels as if White never left his native Louisiana swamps.
