NHT116: STONE TEMPLE PILOTS – Press Play

Hi,

Welcome to NEVER HEARD THAT.

This weeks feature track by US band STONE TEMPLE PILOTS is a short one – but it is an important one.

The lead song off their third album, it signified that this was a band that was seriously growing from their hard rock / grunge foundation and broadening their musical palette.

The rest of the album certainly confirmed that, showing them at their playful and inventive best.

I hope you enjoy this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

Cheers, Andrew Muecke

NHT115: GOLDFRAPP – Deep Honey

Hi,

Welcome to this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

I think that is must help when you have a few strings in your musical bow.

Todays feature duo, Goldfrapp, have that.

They can tip their hand to cabaret, to pure dance, and across ambient chill.

That gives the listener a nice plate where they can take it all or pick and choose.

I am most fond of their ambient works and I have chosen one of them today.

I hope you enjoy this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

Cheers, Andrew Muecke

NHT114: ALEX DE GRASSI – Western

Hi,

Welcome to this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

I think we all appreciate that being taught, coached or mentored from an early age gives us a great chance to become very, very good at our craft.

With associated hard work and persistence, we can become professional – a lucky few will even be deemed experts in their field.

Without question, todays feature artist, ALEX DE GRASSI is an expert at the guitar. To discover that he is self-taught is absolutely extraordinary.

I challenge you not to be impressed with this eloquent and expressive track from another Windham Hill artist!

Cheers, Andrew Muecke
