Liveblogging! “Music For Swimmers,” 5/6/12

May 6, 2012

Once again, covering Emma’s “Style City” today, so I decided to make excellent use of my additional 1.5 hours and play the entirety of Robert Ashley’s opera, “Now Eleanor’s Idea.” It’s one of my all-time favorites, and I’m delighted to bring it to a bigger, more awake, bunch of listeners. So many nice calls today about it, too. That always makes things nice! At any rate, if the playlist looks a little short today, remember that pieces 1 and 2 are awfully long! Thanks for listening– tune in next Sunday from 5-6pm CST on 91.1FM locally, or stream at WDBX if you’re somewhere more interesting. Until then, take care!

Liveblogging! “Music For Swimmers” 4/22/12

April 22, 2012

It’s just one day until my birthday, which is turning out to be a combination of “I forgot,” and “I’m broke.” If you listened to “Music For Swimmers” today, at least take the time to tell a friend about the show– 5-6pm CST, every Sunday evening on WDBX-FM. Thanks!

April 15, 2012

Today was the first episode of my show in it’s new 5-6pm Sunday time slot– I think it went very well! I’m used to having a lot more space to stretch out in, so this was different, but fun. Earlier, I compared the experience to working as a short order cook after spending a long time working entirely with crock pots. My special “no interruptions” arrangement with the station manager lets me avoid playing any promos or underwriting during my show, which definitely helps. I also did a lot more quick transitions than usual– I won’t do this for every show, but I wanted to kick things off with some improv mixing and collage. It felt right. Ordinarily, I intend to stick by my “no excerpts” rule, which may prove interesting in terms of focus during a one-hour show. There’s definitely a lot less room for error, though; I believe this may be an interesting challenge. If you heard today’s show, leave a comment and tell me what you thought. I’m curious how things went on your end. –DaveX

Before you go any further, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of “Closed Encounters of the 4 Minds,” on Public Eyesore. I’m really quite taken with this one– some of the old-school electronic sounds just leap out at you, and it doesn’t hurt that the 4th track is ridiculously catchy. The album hasn’t left my stereo since it arrived, so you’ve been warned. Don’t sleep on it!

February 18, 2012

It’s freakin’ Promo City over here, so next week is going to be awesome! I’m staring down new stuff from Tom Hamilton, idM TheftAble, and if, Bwana; not to mention a couple new ones from the Pogus label as well– Noah Creshevsky, Leo Kupper… goddamn, these guys know what moves me! If that wasn’t good enough, there’s also new stuff from the Cuneiform and Abzu labels, and a couple self-releases from brand-new folks– it’s always good to hear from new people, keep ‘em coming!

I’m definitely looking forward to playing this Davis Redford Triad LP, “The Mystical Path of the Number Eighty-Six,” a Holy Mountain release that probably won’t make many journeys out of my home in the future. I hope you’re listening! (And hey, a big thanks to Lou’s Records in Encinitas, CA for helping me find this one!)

OMG, can’t believe I forgot (I told you this was a good night!) but I’ve also got two new LPs from ZeroMoon, whose “intelligent noise music” has always rung true to my ears– Blue Sausage Infant’s “Negative Space,” and “District of Noise Vol. 4,” which features Washington D.C. area noise artists. I won’t have time for both on today’s program, but you’ll definitely hear each over the next few weeks, most likely on both programs.

Lastly, The Claudia Quintet (with Theo Bleckmann) will be in St. Louis for a New Music Circle event on March 2nd at the 560 Music Center Ballroom. I’ll have some free tickets to giveaway next week, so make plans to listen in– maybe they’ll be yours!

I was pretty happy to play the new Chefkirk album, “We Must Leave The Warren,” out now on Bryan Day’s Eh? label. Day has been sticking it to thematic music for a long while now, and frankly, I’m happy to see Chefkirk’s disc in such good company. It’s no secret that I’ve dug every Chefkirk recording I’ve managed to hear, but this one seems particularly right– high tones that pierce your face; low end that rattles the room; and every sort of scratchy, squelchy noise in between. Anyone playing no-input mixers will probably face a Toshimaru Nakamura comparison at some point in time, but Chefkirk’s offerings still come out strong. It’s partly due to the obvious familiarity with his gear, but paradoxically, it’s his naked efforts to push and explore the confined space of the mixer that set this disc apart from Nakamura’s more meditative fare.

Today’s show is inspired by the range of human experience– from our attempts at immortality in art and medicine, to our attempts simply to survive a long winter. Shivering in the cold, lungs rattling. Naked, save a thin skin of artifice against the vacuum of space. Making our mark on the cave wall. Missing the mark, buried under the crushing weight of the billions after.

Liveblogging! Commentary for “ITDE” 7/31/10

July 31, 2010

I’ve got a lot of good stuff to share on today’s show, notably some recordings from Isoundercore that had a bit of a torturous path to the airwaves. Let’s just say that someone opened someone else’s mail and leave it at that, shall we? I

n other business, WDBX is hosting a DJ Spin Party on August 5th, from 4-8pm. I thought it was a great idea until I realized that it was in Turley Park, and open to the public. Let that sink in– it’s basically a last-hurrah for this year’s Sunset Concert Series. Granted, I’m all in favor of the end of the Sunset Concerts, but I doubt this will be the ironic coup de grâce I’ve got in mind.

It’s anyone’s guess as to whether I’ll attend, but you’d better believe I’m taking my turn at the controls if I do, all requests for “danceable” music aside. Way to be inclusive, there. I bet “Light On the Law” will be keeping one end of the gym bleachers warm along with The Bioneers. But seriously, it might be fun, and Carbondale will survive– after all, who’ll hear it? Alcohol isn’t allowed!

But hey, let’s talk about performances I’m actually interested in: on the 6th and 7th of August, there’s Swampfest. In truth, I have no idea what it’s called, but that’s not the point. It’s two days worth of music at The Swamp! Unfortunately, this occasion actually DOES mark the end of their underground music series. Coincidentally, I’ll also be there, performing on the 7th around 7-ish. I have something interesting worked up, so I hope you’ll be able to make it.
