Saturday, January 18th, 6am - 9am
on Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
With each new album release, Hollie Fullbrook, of the band Tiny Ruins, continues to show that she is one of the most poetic and very finest songwriters. After recording her third album, "Olympic Girls", she was compelled to approach the songs again, this time as a solo session. The result, "Olympic Girls Solo" (on Ba Da Bing), brings to mind her spare and hushed early releases, and showcases her beautiful guitar playing. Hollie's WFMU session is just her and guitar, and also features a conversation about her background and songwriting.
