Gordon Allen visits Listening Lyrics 2/5/16 at 4:00PM

Gordon is a multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter based out of Oakland, California. Starting with the Scottish fiddle at the age of 4, his passion for music has grown to encompass a wide variety of styles. On the violin, this has included jazz, folk, celtic, bluegrass, r&b and reggae. As a vocalist, he has done everything from shape-note singing to opera to beatboxing. Among other credits, he was introduced to choral music by the legendary Chanticleer, briefly competed in a barbershop quartet, and directed a pop acappella group at UC Davis. In college, his tastes as a dance facilitator and budding producer lead him to house music, electroswing, and glitch hop. Gordon's current projects aim to bring together these diverse influences – his sounds have been described as "gospel folk" and "post apocalyptic railroad blues." As a musician, producer and performer, Gordon hopes to unite people of all backgrounds and make them dance. You can follow him online at soundcloud.com/buskproject

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.    Listening lyrics on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter

LIVE IN THE LOAM presents I SEE HAWKS IN L.A. - Feb 5 at 2:30P

The Folk Brothers host SoCal band I See Hawks in L.A. for KDRT's Live in the Loam, Friday, February 5 at 2:30 pm PT. The band has an impressive catalogue of original songs that cover the musical terrain of country, rock, psychedelia, folk, and bluegrass. Lyrically, the songs display a wry sense of situational humor that typically isn’t found in this genre. The Austin Chronicle refers to their sound as "a divine fusion of humor and twang that’s definitely high, but not that lonesome."
 
I See Hawks in L.A. also appear that evening in Winters at the Palms Playhouse. Their latest release is Mystery DrugVisit the band on the web at iseehawks.com.

Album of the Week: Nick Cave "Push the Sky Away" - Feb 4 at 5P

AotW this week is Push the Sky Away (2013), Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' first new recorded material in five years’ time. Cave spent those five years on projects unrelated to the Bad Seeds, including soundtracks, screenplays, and his musical side project Grinderman. Sky is a fairly quiet album for Nick and the Seeds, featuring misty tableaus and twisted love stories. The arrangements are subtle, wonderfully orchestrated, and well-suited to the material. In the end, it’s Nick Cave’s vocals that carry the day--equally tender and forceful, quite and dark...always a bit threatening.
