It was my pleasure to welcome The Pines:http://www.thepinesmusic.com to the studio around 7:45am, to celebrate the release of their second album, Tremolo, in stores August 11th. They’ll have a CD release party in October as they look to tour behind the record, but we got to hear some of the songs Tuesday morning, live and on record. Man, they were nice to play live so early for us! Other new music we heard included new Joe Pernice, a single from a lovely group called The Hush Now, and Marcio Faraco from new Putumayo compilation, Brazilian Cafe.
During the second hour, we had special guests Aida Shahghasemi and Dan Rein interviewed by Roy Woodstrum. They performed part of Dastgah Nava on Setar and Voice. They also played a Kurdish Muqam, Jeloshahi on Kurdish Tanbur and Daf.
