Leila Adu (NY) / somesurprises / Kate Olson / Unknown Rockstar 09/01
Leila Adu travels the spaceways of music without limits. From tours of the US, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Far East, London’s Time Out says, ‘Avante-garde pop that recalls Nina Simone and Tim Buckley,” and Italy’s popular music mag Blow Up describes her last album Ode to the Unknown Factory Worker as “splinters of folk and blues but also hypnotic and ghostly prog.” Steve Albini who produced her second album dubbed her “Spooky Adu.”
Leila was awarded a doctoral fellowship in composition at Princeton in 2011 — the same year she was voted MTV Iggy’s artist of the week.
Leila’s unreleased fifth album and new live set take a new direction into Avantronica, replacing her acoustic sound for layers of, both live and pre-recorded, organ and vintage synth mixed with Ableton Live music software. The live set is a duo of Leila’s vocals, synth and piano with New York based Italian drummer, Federico Ughi who divides his time between New York and international tours with legends such as Daniel Carter, William Parker and spends time playing with Ornette Coleman and her latest recordings with kiwi beatmaker/drummer, Riki Gooch.

Late Nights for the Longing
Mondays, 10pm – 1am PST
SLQTRRR Slashed Tires
Program Description: Late Nights for the Longing (LNftL) is arranged to play music of underrepresented artists in the NW and beyond. Providing airtime for in-studios, new music, and support of local music happenings for the underground-DIY music/arts community of the NW. The program also airs live recordings of shows taking place in alternative spaces in the NW, produced by music documentation project, Off Tempo. Story behind the program: When I was in my younger days - youth, as we call it in the biz - I had insomnia. Still have it, but it’s not as often and as bad as it was. I drew and wrote comics, so it seemed that activity was a perfect fit with my insomnia for an OCD driven 16 year old kid. Unfortunately, my parents had set a bed time to be 9:00. It was a seemingly arbitrary time with a semi-logical reason to go to bed and it didn’t make any sense to me since I was always barely sleepy. I also lived on a farm fifteen miles out of town, which is a lot when you can’t drive a car and can’t/don’t go into town unless it’s for school or trips with your parents. It’s that sentiment of isolation that brings out the worst feeling of lonliness. So in these consistent funks of loneliness and depression while attempting to sleep between 9:00PM and 1:00AM I would listen to the radio in hopes that I could hear someone else talk over the other end of the wire. I would intimately listen to what was coming through my headphones over the “Alternative” radio station. I’d listen to tapes, or playback They Might Be Giants until I’d fall asleep. Listening to Loveline was incredibly important to me, not due to the hilarious (mostly sex-based) and interesting discussions but because there were two people on the other end that were listening and that you could talk to… About your sexy problems… Late Nights for the Longing is about that: someone being on the other end of the radio for the periods of the night where you might not be able to sleep, your lonely, you have to study, you want to dance in your room in your underwear to your favorite music.
