Today's Program

Featured CD

October 2015 CD of the Month – Slow Meadow

We open fall with an autumnal CD of the Month, the debut album by Slow Meadow. Slow Meadow is Matt Kidd who previously made music as Aural Method. With the guidance of the post-rock band Hammock, Slow Meadow creates a serene expanse of elongated melodies and deep textures. This is music that owes as much to Arvo Pärt as Brian Eno.
