Primavera Sound 2013 MP3 Collection

The annual Primavera Sound Festival took place this May at Parc Del Forum in Barcelona, Spain. The festival's line-up is consistantly impressive, bringing together a mix of artists from across genres and generations. 

For the past 5 years, WFMU has been incredibly honored to be the festival's official American radio station. and to have so many incredible acts have give us permission to carry their sets.

These recordings wouldn't be possible without help from WFMU staffers who occupied the mosquito-infested double-wide broadcasting tent during the coldest Primavera festival yet. This includes WFMU's Liz Berg (you love her FMA podcasts and weekly mixes), Brian Turner (thank him for our recent live Mudhoney session), Scott Williams, Evan "Funk" Davies and Scott Konzelmann. You can explore the rest of the archived, streamable (non-downloadable) sets here and here.

All of these artist-approved live recordings are being offered under a Download Only License, which means they welcome you to listen but not remix or use in videos.

Patrick, You're A Saint

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I present a mix made up of artists who currently reside in Ireland, have Irish roots, or simply a pronounced Irish influence. As you'll discover, not all Irish music sounds like what you would hear at a parade or a sports pub (aka. a spub, like a spud - Irish!). For more overtly Irish-sounding tunes, I recommend this Magically Delicious Mix featuring "Irish Hearts" by Fred van Eps.

Patrick J. Touhey “Drowsy Maggie” - OK, this is one of the few exceptions to my preface, but this is such a gorgeous traditional folk song. Irish-American Touhey played the Uilleann pipes (Irish bagpipes) and this recording is from 1919.

Dublin Duck Dispensary "Irish Rebel Song" - Now I really am starting to look like a hypocrite. But, Bobby Aherne's lo-fi solo act is one of my faves and he happens to be from Dublin and to also have produced this dreamy song that sounds like it could have emanated from the recent crop of Northern New Jersey bands like Big Troubles, Ducktails, and Julian Lynch.

Nora O'Connor "Two Way Action" - O'Connor is a first-generation Irish-American (and native Chicagoan), performs with Andrew Bird and The Blacks, has toured with everyone from Mavis Staples to New Pornographers, and also happens to be a renowned bartender, doula, and ordained reverend. (Yeah, what have YOU done today?) The eclectic warmth of all of these endeavors melts through in this track.

Sláinte "Julia Delaney" - Another one to slip past my preamble, Sláinte is a legit Irish band from Tacoma. Pronounced "slawn-cha" it is Gaelic for "cheers" or "good health." This is definitely one you can get jiggy with (sorry). Combines the good parts of a jam band with stunning traditional instrumentation that would kick the crud out of an Irish Spring commercial.

Solvents "Yr. Ghostwriter" - Bandmembers Emily Madden and Jarrod Bramson met when Bramson played rhythm guitar in Madden's father's traditional Irish folk band. The spark that crackled into Solvents lays its melodic residue all over rich violin and vocals.
