Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour with Mariam Massaro
"Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #154 reflects the introspective calm of a snowbound February afternoon her at Singing Brook Studio in the snowy Berkshires. Mariam Massaro and Bob Sherwood weave a series of reflective, skilful improvisations from Mariam's beautiful, unusual poetry. We begin with the deep, calm "Oh Couray Couray" which blends Mariam's chanting and moonlit poetry with her ukelele and Bob's flowing piano accompaniment to sweet and calming effect. Next is "In The Morning" wherein Mariam accompanies her chants and word paintings with acoustic guitar and Bob's piano to bluesy effect. The driving, Celtic strains of "Out Of Darkness I See The Light" follow, creating a driving prayer of gratefulness out of a circular, assertive progression. Next up is the peaceful, reflective "Rainbow Circle Around The Moon"/"Realization" and we follow this with a winter reflection called "To The Snow Queen", a frosty meditation accompanied by Mariam's acoustic guitar and Bob's piano. We close with "It's Just That Way", a lovely, uplifting paean to goodbyes and to love deferred.

Another big show this week, with back-to-back episodes featuring four interviewees.
Secret City Records' Daniel Isaiah discusses his latest work, Come Into Gone. Though Isaiah has spent considerable time in Europe and the U.S., and is known in some circles as much for his award-winning short films (under the name Daniel Schachter), CIG is a distinctly local work. The new album was written in his cozy Mile End flat, in a 10-foot by 10-foot room with a perfect view of Mont-Royal, and a little piano in it hauled over from Halifax, on which many of the songs were composed. Isaiah had never taken this approach before, but through it he found chords that he wouldn’t have on his usual guitar. And though writing the songs took considerable time, not much rehearsing or preparation went into recording them. The looseness of the recordings works so well precisely because the songs are so well crafted.
We also catch up with 3/4 of the bill for the April 2nd edition of Generation Next Live at The Phoenix in Toronto in electro-rock four-piece DLV, alt quartet The Control Room, and upbeat indie pop trio Goodnight, Sunrise. (Rebel Hero, the fourth band on the bill, was on last week's show.) If you're in the Toronto area, consider checking it out. www.generationnextlive.com.
