When I Heard The Learn'd Astronomer by The Wingdale Community Singers
Led by the core of Hannah Marcus, David Grubbs and Rick Moody, The Wingdale Community Singers return for a third round with another album of nearly heartbreaking beauty. The Wingdales' seemingly simple songs have an underlying emotionalism that really tugs at the listener's soul. Walt Whitman becomes an unexpected lyricist as his poetry forms the basis of a three-song Whitman sampler at the center of the album, including the title song, "Night, Sleep, Death, and the Stars." The Wingdale Community Singers, joined by the newest member Tessa Jones, played live from WFMU's "Love" room.
