Susanna by Gitte Johannessen/NTB

From the 2018 Big Ears Festival, listen to a bewitching set of covers and originals from Norwegian singer Susanna, recorded at the historic Bijou Theatre. The magical Susanna, (whose full name is Susanna Wallumrød) was joined by Swiss harpist Giovanna Pessi, accordion player Frode Haltli, and Kentucky based multi-instrumentalist Cheyenne Mize, as the set covered American blues guitarist Elizabeth Cotton, English Baroque composer Henry Purcell, and songwriters Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake. The arrangements used Baroque harp, some strikingly cinematic accordion playing, and haunting 3-part harmonies that included her special guest Bonnie “Prince” Billy and Cheyenne Mize.

Hear most of her set from that night, March 23, 2018, which also included arrangements of Joy Division, Nick Drake, and Lou Reed, traditional folk songs, and an original by Susanna. Our thanks to AC Entertainment for the recording of this performance and to the Big Ears Festival team.

NewSounds.org infuses the eclectic spirit of the radio show into a full online and live event experience. Combining the New Sounds radio show, WNYC’s Soundcheck podcast and the adventurous spirit of WQXR’s Q2 Music, NewSounds.org will be a place for discovery, conversation, insights into the creative process, and of course 24/7 music.
The centerpiece is New Sounds Radio, an online station hosted by New Sounds founder and long-running host John Schaefer, but infused with new, emerging voices including experimental musicians Kelly Moran, Eliza Bagg and Lora-Faye Åshuvud, and tastemakers Gamall Awad and Matt Werth, along with WQXR’s Helga Davis and Terrance McKnight, and composer-guitarist Phil Kline. The station will feature an array of styles and genres – from singer Courtney Barnett to contemporary classical music ensemble Kronos Quartet, from jazz icon Henry Threadgill to the Nordic folk music of Wardruna, from electronic composer and bandleader Anna Meredith to the stunning vocals of Puerto Rico’s Ileana Cabra.
“With almost everything ever recorded anywhere now available online, where do you start? New Sounds might be the place,” said John Schaefer. “We try to be friendly and jargon free, and gleefully oblivious of genre. Our goal is to find the artists, the songs, and the sounds that you might love – if only you get a chance to hear them. And we believe that algorithms won’t give you the same experience as a set of recommendations from real people. A friendly guide is the best way to discover new music, or music that defies easy categorization; and some of that music just might change your life.”
“For three decades, New Sounds was one of the last bastions of free form FM programming; completely genre-free and dictated solely by the impeccable and irresistible tastes of its host,” said Alex Ambrose, Senior Producer, New Sounds. “NewSounds.org will usher that sense of discovery and unpredictability into the digital age, drawing on the best of New York’s curatorial and taste-making power.”
