Liveblogging! Commentary for “ITDE” 2/7/09

I got in a bit early today– WDBX still hasn’t filled the vacant time slot prior to my broadcast– so I’ve got a lot of interesting recordings to share with you ready to go. As an added listener benefit, I feel somewhat guilty, having assisted an acquaintence with the setup of her daughter’s new iPod… filled up with new country pop garbage, and Don McLean’s ubiquitous “American Pie” stuck like an unlikely cherry on the pile. Everyone is welcome to their own tastes, but I still wanted to put something a bit more “nutritious” in the mix; if you’re going to dig country, how about some honky-tonk classics? Or maybe a bit of bluegrass?

For now, I’ll content myself with playing this Conure disc, “Stream,” from Edgetone Records. This is seriously noisy stuff, but very well put-together also. I find it a bit hard to listen to– somehow, “Stream” keeps getting me in these reveries, and the music skips on ahead. There is a re-focusing, but inevitably some small detail in the mix will pull me away. Difficult, but enjoyable!

Towards the end of The Epicureans’ disc (incidentally, a highly-engrossing listen), a guest dropped by– he’s expressed some interest in starting a show at WDBX-FM, and much discussion of music followed. Here is your playlist, take care until next week! –DaveX
