Today's edition of Friday Live features Antony & the Johnsons, because their in-studio performance on last Friday's WNYC Spinning On Air session was the most soulful music I heard all month, and maybe all year.
Antony & the Johnsons mp3s from WNYC Spinning in-studio performance (8/5/05):
For Today I Am A Boy
I Fell In Love With A Dead Boy
From their May 2005 performance on XFM:
Hope There's Someone
You Are My Sister
And a non-live "somewhat available" track ripped from the WNYC Spinning session:
Mysteries of Love
Listen to the entire interview and performance here. Antony talks about Edgar Allan Poe, the disturbing children's letters in the I Am a Bird Now liner notes, and details about the songs he performed.
