Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #407 was recorded on a hot August afternoon at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts, and features the Gaea Star Band performing original, visionary acoustic improv music with Mariam Massaro on lead vocals, native flute, dulcimer, twelve string guitar and ukulele, Robin Rooney on djimbe, percussion and vocals, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on congas and native drums. Today we begin with the languid, prayerlike mantra “Turn The Golden Knob”, a psychedelic, evocative piece with a compelling vocal from Mariam. Next up is the gorgeous “In The River”, a bittersweet summer song with a perfect folk melody from Mariam and a metronomic and lovely piano motif from Bob. Mariam strums her open-tuned 12 string guitar for the mysterious, modal “Mist Is Rising In The Meadow”, accompanying an eldritch, ancient melody, and “Yanayo” is a drifting minor ballad led by Mariam’s ukulele featuring a wandering melody of deep mystery. Bob picks up the bass guitar for the groovy “We Are Going To Change Our World”, a driving rock groove with an assertive, inspiring vocal from Mariam, and “Ruby” is a fearie country song with a Nashville undertone and a whimsical lyric from Mariam. Today’s final song is “All Life Unfolds” from the “For The Children” album, here featuring excellent flute work from Mariam and a steady, pulsing drum groove from Robin and Craig.
