Mates of State, Sam Phillips, Jethro Tull, More

collage 300

Singer-songwriter Sam Phillips makes gorgeously textured, spare acoustic music. Hear a cut from her mesmerizing new CD Don't Do Anything. The keyboard-and-drums duo Mates of State are back with their best album yet, the stunning Re-Arrange Us. Also on the show: the whimsical world of Rupa and the April Fishes, a classic reissued from Jethro Tull, New Orleans pianist Henry Butler, and Rachel Taylor Brown, another great unknown from our Second Stage series.
