Interpol, John Cale, Tin Hat Trio

HoboSapiens

Set Me Free

  • Artist: John Cale
  • Song: Set Me Free
  • From: HoboSapiens

John Cale is best known as the bassist and viola player with The Velvet Underground, but in retrospect it's a small part of his musical life. He's released a number of great solo albums, successful collaborations, and produced many of the early ground-breaking American punk LPs. This is from Cale's latest solo album.

Alejandro Escovedo got his start in a punk band called the Nuns in the mid '70s and went on to pioneer his own blend of folk, progressive country, roots rock and various Latin flavors. He collapsed following a show in 2003 and was diagnosed with Hepatitis C. This album is a benefit to raise money for his medical bills.

Danish guitarist Morten Hoirup says he and fiddle partner Harald Haugaard "decided to make a CD that vibrated of summer in all the positive ways. We wanted something that gave energy.
