It's been seven years since Natalie Merchant's last album (2003's The House Carpenter's Daughter). That's a pretty big gap in albums, but it all makes sense, now that she has revealed the story behind her latest, Leave Your Sleep. It's a research-based project that had Merchant digging into 19th and 20th century poetry about childhood (sometimes composed by children) from America and England. Check out the making of video and pay your respects to this incredible concept album!
YGHT is also heard on The Music Lab.
On Thursday April 15, 2010, City Dwelling Nature Seekers blew the roof off The WYEP Community Broadcast Center for Third Thursday. They played stuff from their self-titled EP (including "Will and A Way" which was featured on The Local News) and also an upcoming release. Check out the recording from that night on the recently posted Third Thursday podcast. It's on your Mp3 player or listen below. More photos here.MP3: Third Thursday with City Dwelling Nature Seekers
