A Sad day for Radio as The Loop dies

Sorry to hear that today was the last day for Legendary Chicago classic rock station The Loop. RIP

The world’s not changing for the better folks

I went to a lot of Loop sponsored concerts.  Loved listening to Johnny B, Steve Dahl, Buzz, Chet Chitchat. Gods of Radio playing the Gods of Rock.

Fleet Foxes Live with Icelandic Choir

Fleet Foxes’ album Crack-up is one of Spool Going Round’s favorite albums of 2017. They are still touring it into 2018. A recent show in Iceland was recorded and can be watched below by clicking on the link. Tour dates without the choir are below.

consequence of sound

Fleet Foxes debut a stunning performance of “Crack-Up,” accompanied by the acclaimed Icelandic choir Graduale Nobili, an all-female group of vocalists who have toured the world alongside Björk. The performance was filmed in one extended shot at the famed Harpa Concert Hall in Iceland, just before the band headlined the Iceland Airwaves music festival. In the video, the camera moves from backstage to onstage to the open auditorium, capturing the Fleet Foxes musicians at work, illuminated against the beautiful hall.
