Liveblogging! “ITDE” 6/25/11

June 25, 2011

A fun show today– Zelphabet stuff is always a great way to kick off the morning, and of course, fine contributions from top labels like Cuneiform, Monochrome Vision, XI Records, Hymns… so far! I gotta mention that XI has a new one out, the three-CD set “Toot!” by Charlie Morrow. You better believe I’m going to be playing the bejeezus out of these, so be prepared for it next week.

Liveblogging! “Sounds Like Radio” 6/19/11

June 19, 2011

I’m listening to “Sounds Like Radio” with you this evening, and very much enjoying these cuts from Glenn Weyant’s “Tucson Orchestrated” album. There is a nice moment toward the end of “Monsoon Redux” where light percussive sounds strike on what sound like pots and pans. Although I’m guessing that Tucson doesn’t get much in the way of rainfall, it does remind me of an experiment of mine where I left some similar cooking implements out in a gentle shower. It’s good music to dream on, especially with headphones.

Hmm, seems I was too close to the mic for this break– definitely a bit too much low end in the voice.

As I’m listening to Merzbow and Richard Pinhas, I’m struck by how much Pinhas’ guitar sounds like one of the synths in Brian Eno and Jon Hassell’s album “Fourth World, Vol.1″… I’m thinking specifically of “Charm.” It’s like a bizarro world version of the B-side, as if Hassell just took off in a completely different direction. I might need to dig that album out again and compare them for fun.

Liveblogging! Playlist for “ITDE” 6/4/11

June 4, 2011

Once again, I’m in the Hi-Life Room a bit early, so I decided to play the first 30-minute cut off Arvo Zylo’s re-issue of “333.” This is one hell of a listen, I’m feeling a bit sorry for myself, having missed the initial cassette run. I’ll be getting back to this disc towards the end of today’s show.

Gotta say, I’m happy as hell to see a documentation of live Chefkirk/Ironing actions in the form of “Life in Florida 2010.” I dig the interplay between these two, and really enjoyed their earlier album together on Hymns. I won’t hold my breath, but I’ll throw out a “hail Mary” request– how about Chefkirk/Ironing meets Shelf Life for a Eh?/Hymns double disc. Get Bob Marsh and Hal McGee to co-narrate, omg I’m ruining these pants. But seriously, that would be awesome.

Speaking of awesome, I’m currently blowing Southern Illinoisian minds with some Government Alpha, from the “G” volume of Zelphabet. I’m still amazed at how much traction this series has, I’ve been able to listen to many of the discs over and over. This particular cut has the added benefit of masking the annoying ground loop hum coming from our studio monitors right now as well!
