Sunday Brunch: Oct. 13, 2013

sundaybrunch2New music every Sunday.

“By eliminating the need to get up early on Sunday, brunch would make life brighter for Saturday-night carousers. It would promote human happiness in other ways as well. Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.” –  from Brunch: A Plea, by Guy Beringer, in “Hunter’s Weekly”, 1895.

Sarah Jarosz – “Build Me Up From Bones” (from Build Me Up From Bones, 2013)
Sort of a vintage Shawn Colvin vibe circa “Shotgun Down the Avalanche“, but with a bit of a  bluegrassy Alison Krauss thing going on too. Heartfelt and close to the bone.

National Wake – “International News” (from Walk in Africa 1979-1981, 2013)
Punky afropop from another time, yet still relevant today. Light in the Attic has just released a compilation of their works, including previously unreleased material. They were also featured in a recent documentary called Punk in Africa. Czech radio described National Wake as “perhaps the most dissident music scene of the 20th century: a multi-racial punk band in a fascist police state.”

Diego Garcia – Sunnier Days (from Paradise, 2013)
Argentine-American artist releases poppy, and, yes- sunshiny, new album harkening back to a 1960’s when you could hop on a Pan Am flight to Paris, tie a scarf around your neck in an appropriately arty way, and drive a groovy convertible MG across the continent, somehow ending up in Long Island.  Lots of mugging for the camera and goofing around would then ensue. Is that a ukulele I hear? No? Well there should be one if there isn’t.
Did you know Diego Garcia is also a place?
