Pre Turkey Apocalypse Show

No guest today, we had a morning of all recorded music and a bit of spoken word.  Ranging from contemporary to classic, it was a typical atypical CrossTracks edition, a blend of diverse influences.  A few artists to highlight:  Erin McKeown has released Monday Morning Cold on CD, remastered, resequenced, and repacked with lyrics, but with all the kick, joy, streaming words layered over flowing punctuated guitar that marks her live performance.  At the same time, she has issued a 7" vinyl with Portland, Oregon's Leigh Marble, one song (and artist) per side titled Anticipation et Denouement.   Julia Macklin, from her self titled release, began our morning with her dreamy vocals, striking harmonies and woven with rich images.  Kaydi Johnson's Tied has become a real favorite with her insightful poetic visions delivered with gentle passion and warmth.  On a cool Autumn morning, we turned up the heat and stretched our thoughts to start to our day here in MetroWorcester.
