Routes and Branches Play List 04/30/11

A busy week here on Routes & Branches. I had two musical guests into the studio this week,first local musician Tyler Fortier who is releasing his second CD of this year titled "Fear Of The Unknown". Fortier says this album is totally unlike his last album which was recorded in his parents garage, "Fear Of The Unknown" was a major production bringing in multiple other musicians including but not limited to his regular band mates as well as getting some help from the University of Oregon's School of Music on horns and percussion. I have not had a chance to listen to the entire album yet, but what I have heard sounds really good.

My second guest today was Mark Growden who is on tour behind his 10th album called "Lose Me In The Sand" which he recorded with his Tucson String band. My first encounter with Growden's music was his previous album "St Judas", which he recorded with his Oakland band and has a more urban blues feel to it and is a totally different sound from the Tucson String band. I find that I like the sound on "Lose Me In The Sand" more than "St Judas" which I'm sure comes from my preference to the sound of the string band. Growden says that he is captivated with old American music, mainly African-American, recorded by ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax in the 1930s and 1940s.
