This week, we'll look at artists in exile. Not those forced from their homes through political or legal turmoil but the more romantic expatriation of the kind envisioned by Henry Miller, Ernest Hemingway and Graham Greene. The 'Lost Generation', living in hotels, on allowance and awaiting inspiration.
Finding their muse this week are Azoora, Kesakoo, My Toys Like Me, Juliet Hotel, Darren Scott Nesbit and The Chill Conspiracy. I'm Jim Nye.
We'll begin in the U.K. with Azoora from the Revelations EP and 'She's Coming '
Hear more tracks at www.myspace.com/kesakooelectra We last heard from eclectic duo My Toys Like me back of Episode 45. This is 'Bats'
Imagine whiling away the days and languishing at the Juliet Hotel when in comes a 'Bomb in a Suede Smoking Jacket'
There are several free songs to be had www.daznez.com Time to return home with The Chill Conspiracy and 'The Shadow Escape Plan' Hear more from this very cool band at www.myspace.com/thechillconspiracy Help support many of the artists you hear on Idyllic Music by buying a song or CD from them. There is also a book corner with where you can browse through 20 great music books including Miles Davis's autobiography and the Trouser Press Guide to Music. And look for all 4 Volumes of The Idyllic Music iMix.
Thanks for listening. I'm Jim Nye.
