My Exit: Hannah Barry

My Exit Hannah Barry.jpgIt's Monday, which means WEXT is running another My Exit show -- where the listeners get to pick their own playlists.

Here's this week's person...

Who?
My name is Hannah Barry. I am a social worker with a couple of side jobs (spin instructor, ski instructor) that help keep me doing what I love. I moved to the Albany area 5 years ago from New Mexico.

How would you desicribe your taste in music?
My music collection has a lot of rock including classic (Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Crosby Stills & Nash, Pink Floyd) and alternative/indie favorites (Black Keys, Arcade Fire, Radiohead, Iron & Wine, Band of Horses). I also like some new wave & electronic music (dubstep, downtempo, etc).

A few songs from Hannah's show:

"Angel in the Snow" by Elliott Smith
I just think this is a beautiful little song, representing the best of what Elliott had to offer-spare and with easily accessible emotion.

"Hard Row" by The Black Keys
I really appreciate the no-nonsense, bluesy approach the Black Keys have. This song represents their raw, down & dirty sound that keeps me listening.

"Cosmic Love" by Florence & the Machine
One of my favorites of hers, I like the rhythm and her trademark intensity- her songs sound fresh to me.

"Run Thru" by My Morning Jacket
I love this album (It Still Moves) and found myself listening to this song repeatedly-it draws me in with the guitar, changes tempo several times and dramatically builds to a guitar solo that gets me every time.

"Paradise Circus" by Massive Attack
Hope Sandoval is the perfect vocalist for this song, giving it a compelling atmospheric quality.

You can hear Hannah's's My Exit show tonight at 8 on 97.7 or at exit977.org.

Here's how to schedule your own My Exit show on WEXT.

Looking forward to hearing your show. I love Massive Attack and will be interested in hearing the rest of your selection :)

Great playlist--sounds like you have really good taste. I did My Exit a few weeks back and played some Elliot Smith, too. I'm sorry I missed the show last night, but I'll try to catch the replay.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
