The Concert: Sound Effect, Episode 212

Singer-songwriter Kimya Dawson

There is nothing like standing in the crowd, watching your favorite musician take the stage, playing your favorite song live right in front of you. Well thanks to a little global pandemic, going to a concert has been more or less impossible. Well, those of us at Sound Effect miss hearing live music, and we are willing to bet that you do to. Today on the show, we are going to bring the concert to you. We're going to be playing live music recordings that were performed and recorded just for Sound Effect over the years. Singer songwriter Lydia Ramsey channels her ancestors in a haunting folk tune. Also some political satire in song form from Long Winters front man John Roderick. And get out the Kleenex...Kimya Dawson performs a real tear jerker. Plus live recordings from Chastity Belt, Ben Union, Naomi Wachira and Skerik’s Bandalabra.
