Sounds of Snow and Ice – WNYC’s New Sounds with John Schaefer

Sounds of Snow and Ice – WNYC’s New Sounds with John Schaefer

Tonight!  December 23rd, 2011, the eve before the Eve, John Schaefer profiles “Icy Sleeves” from my March 2011 release, Outerborough, alongside Kate Bush’s new record. I’ve always been a Kate Bushfan to be sure, from her earliest records, but I never envisioned sharing an icy programming event with her.  Cheers, Kate, you’ve always been an inspiration, and continue to be.  To hear Icy Sleeves of Green and selections from “50 Words for Snow”, visit the link above at 11pm, EST and look to the right for the “listen now” button.  Remember WNYC and New Sounds with your charitable donations here at the end of the year. There is no overstating the difference public radio makes.

From the WNYC Website:

This New Sounds program gets all close and personal with the cold and the white, with the “Icy Sleeves of Green” by Todd Reynolds, and some songs from Kate Bush’s most recent record, “50 Words for Snow.”  We’ll hear songs about melting snowflakes and icicles, soundscapes evoking the blindingly white and bleak, and other works to paint wintry portraits of powdery drifts or stark frozen mountains.
