June 12, 2014 @ 2PM! First Listen: The Antlers, 'Familiars' http://wcbe.org/post/first-listen-antlers-familiars The 2009 album <em>Hospice</em> sparked a major breakthrough for <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/100863291/the-antlers">The Antlers</a>, but it's not the sort of success a band would want to duplicate, even if it could. As the title suggests, <em>Hospice</em> was built around a dark unifying theme — an examination of the events surrounding the slow death of singer Peter Silberman's friend — so the record comes by its desolate, life-and-death intensity honestly. Mon, 09 Jun 2014 21:51:54 +0000 Stephen Thompson 57454 at http://wcbe.org First Listen: The Antlers, 'Familiars' First Listen: Willie Nelson, 'Band Of Brothers' http://wcbe.org/post/first-listen-willie-nelson-band-brothers When <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15396875/willie-nelson">Willie Nelson</a> was a young hustler selling songs to <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15396529/patsy-cline">Patsy Cline</a>'s people, he probably never thought he'd become the crowd-anointed sage of country music. But that's what happened as the Redheaded Stranger went gray, turned smoking weed into a brand and a virtue, and produced a discography that added up to its own American Songbook. Mon, 09 Jun 2014 21:01:14 +0000 Ann Powers 57450 at http://wcbe.org First Listen: Willie Nelson, 'Band Of Brothers' First Listen: Sam Smith, 'In The Lonely Hour' http://wcbe.org/post/first-listen-sam-smith-lonely-hour British singer-songwriter Sam Smith isn't shy. With a steady, well-trained swell of a voice and a knack for whipping in and out of his falsetto in a hairsbreadth, he doesn't feel the need to hide — not by stifling his vocal abilities and not by ducking beneath distracting, colorful production. But on his full-length debut, <em>In the Lonely Hour</em>, he proves that he can play that game when he feels like it.<p>The album begins busily with "Money on My Mind," with its flurry of off-beat snaps, driving drums and pulsing keys. Mon, 09 Jun 2014 19:49:09 +0000 editor 57432 at http://wcbe.org First Listen: Sam Smith, 'In The Lonely Hour' Bob Mould's Beautiful, Ruinous Life In Punk http://wcbe.org/post/bob-moulds-beautiful-ruinous-life-punk <p>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=938czNAsHeM</p><p>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hs7wGhk_Yvg</p><p>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75VNKc8Aduk</p> Wed, 04 Jun 2014 20:17:57 +0000 NPR Staff 57210 at http://wcbe.org Bob Mould's Beautiful, Ruinous Life In Punk WCBE's Monthly Music & More Giveaway: Nickle Creek & The Secret Sisters! http://wcbe.org/post/wcbes-monthly-music-more-giveaway-nickle-creek-secret-sisters <p><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); line-height: 22px; font-family: Georgia, Times, serif; font-size: 15px;">Congratulations to John Parrett!

First Listen: Jose James, 'While You Were Sleeping' http://wcbe.org/post/first-listen-jose-james-while-you-were-sleeping When the spirit of <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15446165/nirvana">Nirvana</a> surfaces in a song, the artist paying tribute almost always shares style points with that treasured band. The hair is shaggy, the clothes a little ragged; the lineage unfolds, relatively neatly, from punk to the present. Mon, 02 Jun 2014 22:43:10 +0000 Ann Powers 57112 at http://wcbe.org First Listen: Jose James, 'While You Were Sleeping' First Listen: First Aid Kit, 'Stay Gold' http://wcbe.org/post/first-listen-first-aid-kit-stay-gold Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg first made their names with feather-light chamber-folk confections that echoed the soaring sweetness of Fleet Foxes. A cover of that band's "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" even helped launch the then-teenagers to <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMrqBldlqzA">YouTube fame</a> back in 2008.
