Hat Trick Opener - Sonos (click for more info)
88.1 FM WYCE and One Trick Pony Grill and Taproom announce the return of the spring Hat Trick Concert series, presented by the Law Firm of Rhoades McKee. These free Monday night shows bring nationally-touring artists in benefit concerts for area non-profits. We launch the season with the six member a capella vocal group Sonos, performing Monday, March 8th at 7:30 pm. Sonos reinvents a 21st Century songbook with bold interpretations of vital indie artists like Radiohead, Fleet Foxes and Rufus Wainwright. We'll pass the hat to raise funds for Rays of Hope for Haiti. More information on the Hat Trick Concert series is at WYCE dot ORG!

Charlotte Gainsbourg

Heaven Can Wait
IRM 2010 via Elektra/Asylum
a note about this track

Beck is all over the new Charlotte Gainsbourg album, titled IRM (French for MRI) and out in January via Because/Elektra. Mr. Hansen wrote the album's music, co-wrote the lyrics, produced, and even mixed the whole thing. But it's still a Charlotte Gainsbourg LP-- a fact that becomes clear after listening to the title track, now available as a free download on her website. "IRM" is a shambolic psych-out based on Gainsbourg's frequent MRI trips after she suffered a brain hemorrhage following a 2007 water-skiing accident.

The Magnetic Fields

I Don't Know What To Say
Realism 2010 via Nonesuch
a note about this track

The Magnetic Fields’ main man Stephin Merritt claims that Realism is the clear-headed answer to the purposefully excessive fuzz of 2008’s Distortion. Sonically, that’s true. But thematically, Realism’s Big Idea involves expressing adult concerns over music fit for children, then reveling in the disconnect.

a note about this track

The duo wrote and recorded Molina and Johnson during a 10-day respite in Johnson's home base of Denton, Texas, where they drank, smoked, and reportedly shot BB guns.
