WORT 89.9 FM welcomes FAUN FABLES w/ Stephanie Rearick
"Out of the glittering caverns of the soul crawls the sixth release of Drag City recording artists FAUN FABLES, âLIGHT OF A VASTER DARK,â a vibrant collection of songs and sounds excavated by songwriter Dawn McCarthy and supported by steadfast collaborator Nils Frykdahl of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum.
This album sparkles with a fear, wonder and playfulness that Faun Fables have become known for: it meditates on the cyclical nature of light and darkness as revealed in the seasons of life, and in the beautiful power of stalwart and humble things like housekeeping, immigrant pioneers and a homely civic parade.
Amidst the solid, elemental structure of McCarthy and Frykdahlâs guitars and eclectic percussion whirl the violins of Meredith Yayanos and the multi-instrumental touches & vocals of Kirana Peyton; a continuation of the lush work with them from the 2008 EP release âA TABLE FORGOTTENâ (Drag City). Driven bass clarinets and shakuhachi flutes from Cornelius Boots and the rich harmonica tones of Mark Stikman complete the sound, with McCarthyâs vocals at the helm, leading the swirling hive through the air like a Valkyrie with the point of a blade.
Dawn and Nils will head out with their family and RV across North America with many songs to tell and stories to sing. Catch them as raw, electric duo or with a rotating selection of musical guests along the way !"
