The jubilant and charming Section Quartet sit down with Grant-Lee Phillips and talk about how they transitioned from classic orchestra to alternative rock on this weeks Shortwave. They discuss challenging the musical establishment, who gets the title of first violin, and what it’s like to work with everyone from Ray Charles to Dr. Dre. Richard on the cello talks about buying plane tickets for his cello and what he names it and the band talks about what it was like to score Drew Barrymore’s first film. We also get treated to some live songs performed in studio including covers of Radiohead and The Postal Service. Their sound is incredible. Don’t miss it!
