Norwegian songwriter Susanne Sundfor exists at the intersection of two worlds (as cleverly depicted in the video for her single "The White Foxes") -- the ancient, natural world of forests and ruins, and the modern, manufactured world of technology, all covered in snow. This is true both thematically, as her songs are often lyrically cold and dark with subtle overtones of brilliant warmth, as well as sonically, blending lush piano elements with the more mechanical, almost industrial elements of pop music. Susanne stopped by to play some solo tunes and talk about the therapy of making art and how her own style developed. Featured song: “The Silicone Veil” Complete broadcast and audio playlist: The latest release by Susanne Sundfor, The Silicone Veil, is now available.

Hey Anna is a band with a distinct advantage over most: their core members have been playing music together their whole lives. The Rauch-Sasseen sisters (Anna, Erin, and Katie) hail from New Jersey and swap lead vocals and instruments in the band, which is rounded out with drums and lead guitar from two long-time best friends. The result is a mixture of gentle vocal harmonies, solid pop jams, and alt-rock hooks.
