On "A Sweeter Music", Sarah Cahill performs various contemporary pieces on the piano: Terry Riley, Meredith Monk, Yoko Ono, ... and The Residents.

In the liner notes, Sarah Cahill explains how she missed hearing the anti-war movement during the Iraq war. Voices that were present during her youth in the 60s.
She contacted various composers with strong political convictions, and got eighteen pieces commissioned for her project.

She performs 'Drum No Fife', composed by The Residents, and narrated by The Residents.
It fits the album and the concept.

Very impressive.
