Caffe Lena 60 Episode 56 2015


Scrawling a name on the wall creates a new indie-folk band, and an artist discovers music in the midst of a meditation center.

This is episode 56 of Caffe Lena: 60 Years of Song. Thank you to Sarah at the Caffe for the list of songs and artists for the feature.

Over a decade ago, singer-songwriter Philip Price scrawled the name “Winterpills” on the wall of a music venue in Northampton, MA. Initially, it was going to be the name for a dreamt-of electronica project but somewhere along the line, it blossomed into a critically acclaimed indie band with a deep catalog of elegant, dark chamber pop.

Massachusetts based “writer- song singer” Heather Maloney found music in the midst of three years at a meditation center, honing a sound moored in days of silent reflection and reverence for storytellers. Her latest album has a song inspired by Ken Burns’ documentary The Dustbowl.
