“Music For Swimmers” playlist and commentary 7/29/12

July 29, 2012

So many things happening lately! I know I’ve been a bit spotty on my “Startling Moniker” duties, but  rest assured, it won’t become a “thing.” Give me a few weeks, and I think I’ll have it all working regularly again. Until that time, enjoy your playlist:

Henry Kaiser — Devil In The Drain (from “Devil In The Drain,” on SST)
Robert Horton — “I am not a centipede”, said Mary Poppins (for P.L. Travers) [from “Reading Sounds,” on Luovaja]
Bill Shute, Anthony Guerra — Deep Focus (from “Subtractions,” on Black Petal)
Iamheard — Hongistola (this, and next, from “Reading Sounds,” on Luovaja)
Haute Cuisine — Une Saison en Enfer
Daniel Kientzy, Tom Johnson — Tortue de Mer (from “Kientzy Plays Johnson,” on Pogus)
Glenn Weyant — Untitled #2, Disc 5 (from “Mystery Vault Files,” unreleased)
A Death Cinematic — The New World (from “The New World,” on Simple Box Construction)

Liveblogging! “Music For Swimmers” 7/22/12

July 22, 2012

Playing some cool tapes today, along with some older stuff that I’ve been digging recently. I’m trying out blogging from my phone as well– seems more of a pain in the neck than anything, but might be interesting for less text-heavy posts. I hope you enjoy today’s show! Just as a reminder, you can catch “Music For Swimmers” (formerly “It’s Too Damn Early”) at its nice new broadcast time every Sunday afternoon from 5-6 p.m., CST.

Head Boggle — Plaid Days (this, and next two, from “Modern Language #1” on Snapped In Half Tapes)
Pulse Emitter — Bucolic Vortex
Carlos Giffoni — Pulpo
Ophibre — Untitled 1 (from “Basil Forests,” on Digitales Limited)

Litnoise from “Elmer Gantry”

This one’s a little long for Twitter, so I’ve added it here:

“…when Elmer concealed an alarm clock behind the organ and it went off, magnificently, just as the superintendent (Dr. Prouty, the dentist) was whimpering, “Now let us all be particularly quiet as
Sister Holbrick leads us in prayer.”” –Elmer Gantry.
