Relache Ensemble http://wrti.org en Kile Smith Recommends... http://wrti.org/post/kile-smith-recommends <p><br /><b>Relache: <i>Press Play</i><br /><br /> Music of Mark Hagerty, Guy Klucevsek, Cynthia Folio</b><br /><br /></p> <p>Relache has been slipping the thin leading edge of new music into Philadelphia since 1979. They've done it with a jolly indifference to the clashing of styles or the rocking of boats. Even their name, which in French means "the show is closed," exhibits their iconoclasm and humor. Downtown, uptown, no town, doesn't matter: if it's new - brand new - Relache is all over it.<br /><br /><br /></p> Wed, 30 Mar 2011 14:01:00 +0000 Kile Smith 2516 at http://wrti.org Kile Smith Recommends...
