Annie Hart – guest session
Annie Hart is best known as one-third of Au Revoir Simone, the beloved all-female synth trio that counts David Lynch as a superfan. She is headed out on a support tour for Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip, including a date at the Troubadour on June 8. Her solo live show has become notable for pulling audiences around the world to rapt attention with a palpable, symbiotic connection between her and the crowd. Greatly influenced by the spare synthesizer sounds of Laurie Spiegel and the electronic pop sensibility of artists such as Gary Numan, Annie returns in her solo work to her love of minimal aural power. In songs such as the first single, “Hard To Be Still” (featured on an upcoming episode of Netflix series, Gypsy, starring Naomi Watts and Freeform TV’s The Fosters), Annie cuts back the layers to reveal a raw version of the dreamy synth pop her band was famous for forging.

Matthew McDermott w/guest Tim Sweeney – En Plein Air
Matt McDermott works his way through a diaspora of musical discoveries, sometimes plaintive, often odd and usually shuffling their way to the outskirts of the dancefloor. He’ll often have friends dropping in to tell him what they’ve seen and more importantly, heard.
Shep Pettibone, Tony Humphries and Tim Sweeney. The latter has earned his place amongst legendary New York City radio DJs by putting an extraordinary amount of care and dedication into his WNYC show, Beats In Space, and by showing up week after week (no repeats!) for nearly 20 years. In doing so, he’s captured an epoch through hundreds of illustrious guests. Sweeney has also remained a friendly, approachable host while becoming a venerated selector and globetrotting DJ in his own right.
With all that said, it’s an honor to welcome Tim back to the station during Dublab’s Membership Drive Fundraiser. As Sweeney’s name has become synonymous with underground, quality radio, his support of Dublab, another freak radio institution that got its start in 1999, is greatly appreciated.
Tune in for an exclusive live mix from Tim prior to his appearance at Soft Power Friday night.
