Something Live: The Cantab Sessions

April 13, 2009

The host, P.J. Shapiro, offers a great mix of live music from the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The music isn’t from one live performance, but a collection of them to make one complete podcast. The first thing to note is how P.J. tries to give the listener the full experience of the sound, which he puts a great effort in. Read it all in his About & FAQ page. The music itself is very intriguing because it’s live music as it was performed with no interruptions, which enriches the whole podcast. My guess is that most of the songs are Massachusetts based, which is fine. Of course, I’m not an instant fan, but there are some songs that are interesting, and some I don’t fancy too much, but that’s typical. All in all, Something Live is an excellent mix, and I recommend it to everyone looking for a new taste of music, or is just a music fan in general. It really brings me back to appreciating music for its quality.  Also, there are excellent interviews with artists.

Something Live is updated every-so-often. Love the folk music from their website, which I can’t find it on iTunes. Please respond if you can find the iTunes link.*

    Also, the title is Something Live: The Cantab Sessions. I’d appreciate it if you could correct the spelling in your post title from “Contab” as you have it right now.

    Thanks again.

    Sorry, must have missed that mistake. Oh well, I fixed it anyhow. Thanks for noting that.
