This week we look at the music of Canadian ethereal singer-songwriter Sea Oleana. We’ll take several tracks from her new EP called “Sleeplessness”, as well as a cut from an earlier, self-titled EP.
Plus there’s electronic craziness from Laurel Halo and Squarepusher, the soundtrack-tinged sounds from Switzerland, a live solo track from a French double-bassist in New York (who’s played with everyone from Steve Lacy to John Cage), and to end the night jubilant Peruvian dance music from an artist with a tragic story.
