Rose Cousins: Sacrifice and stellar singing

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 10:00:00 -0400

Just like the Atlantic Ocean she resides by, Canadian Cousins' music is spacious, expansive and liquid. Her last full length album, We Have Made a Spark, propelled her into a couple years of constant touring. When it was over Rose was burnt out so she headed to Nashville for a stint of songwriting sessions that led to her new record called Natural Conclusion. It features the relaxed feel of her East Coast roots, the tension of heartbreak and sacrifice, and a voice you won't soon forget.

Hiss Golden Messenger, A David Dye Fave

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 11:52:00 -0400

Hoping to nail down the "rush" he feels in making and listening to music, songwriter M.C. Taylor crafted an album in 2014 that was simply infectious, Lateness of Dancers. He drew from his experience recording music in the rural communities of North Carolina – songs like "Southern Grammar" reimagined that sound in a funky, saxy way. From our archives, this is one of host David Dye's favorite artists of all time with his 2014 breakthrough.

Ireland's Bell X1

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 10:20:00 -0400

Brimming with charm, heart and warm synths, Arms marks Bell X1's seventh studio album in nearly 2 decades. But all that experience, along with being one of Ireland's most popular bands, didn't make the process any easier. In this session lead singer Paul Noonan explains why Arms was so hard to make, what it's like to be a rock star and a dad, and what Bell X1 means when they call the album "shonky".
