After 10 years of broadcasting, “It’s Too Damn Early” is moving to a new time– 5-6 p.m. on Sunday evenings. You can catch the first episode at the new time this Sunday, April 15th at 5 p.m. I’ll be revealing the show’s new name as well, so don’t miss it!

March 31, 2012

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!

Liveblogging! “It’s Too Damn Early,” 2/18/12

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!

156 — Expand and Contract (from “Taking A Look At A Moment Lost,” upcoming on Feast of Hate And Fear)
156 — Blasting
A Death Cinematic — When The Sun Settles Into the Horizon We Remember Our Rivers (from “The New World,” on Simple Box Construction)

A Death Cinematic — Our Sorrows Pile Up In the Night’s Lament
A Death Cinematic — As The Lights Fissure The Night Skies, Our Eyes Grew Pale At the Horrors Beheld
A Death Cinematic — The New World
Davis Redford Triad — Hymn Of The Virgin Sun Queen (from “The Mystical Path Of The Number Eighty Six,” on Holy Mountain)
Davis Redford Triad — Smoke Signals In The Rain

Blue Sausage Infant — Motion Parallax (from “Negative Space,” on ZeroMoon)

Covering for “Style City” 2/5/12

February 5, 2012

Mo was feeling unwell today, so I took over “Style City” for her this afternoon– with no plan to watch the Super Bowl, I probably ended up having more fun that I ordinarily would have! That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy her broadcasts, but let’s face it, I dig being at the controls even more. Today’s was a damn fine set, if I do say so myself. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

There’s no broadcast next week for either of us, though– we’ll be on the road– so be sure to re-join “It’s Too Damn Early” in its regular time on Feburary 18th, with “Style City” re-appearing on the 19th. Until then, take care!

January 28, 2012

I’m celebrating the 10th broadcast anniversary of “It’s Too Damn Early” today! Naturally, I’ve pulled out all the stops– I’ve got a ton of great music lined up for this show, so I hope you don’t miss it. Feel like calling in? 618-457-3691.

Liveblogging! “It’s Too Damn Style” 1/22/12

January 22, 2012

I’m covering for “Style City” today, so it’s feeling a bit bright and sunny in the studio– even with all these horrid grey skies! I imagine that will make today’s show a bit different than usual. Another big influence on today’s programming will be the presence of the brand-spanking-new “L” volume of GX Jupitter-Larsen’s “Zelphabet” series. As any reader/listener of mine will know, I’m a big fan. In addition to being an incredible source for noise lovers to discover overlooked or under-promoted musicians, the quality of the contributions has been consistently high– compilations might be a dime a dozen, but there are precious few (especially of this scope) that would honestly elicit such description.

Eric Glick-Rieman — The Past, Aerated (from “In My Mind, her Image Was Reversed,” on Accretions)
Toshio Kajiwara, Marina Rosenfeld, Christian Marclay — New York, 8/21/03 (from “DJ Trio,” on Asphodel)

Leticia Castaneda — Museum for the Blind
Lionel Marchetti — Natura Morta

Whew! I’m kind of tired out this morning. I was happy to take a few nice calls, though– it’s always nice to hear from listeners. Next week is the 10th anniversary of “It’s Too Damn Early” airing on WDBX-FM, so I’m pretty excited about that. Although I don’t have an exact count personally, this is about 500 shows! Seems like a fair number– I’ve missed some, but I’ve also covered a bunch. At any rate, it’s been a lot of fun, and I know I’ve had a great time learning about experimental music (as well as sharing it with you).

December 10, 2011

I played a lot from the Accretions 25th anniversary compilation today– if you’re noticing the absence of Eric Glick-Rieman in the lineup, it’s because I’ve got so much of his stuff in tomorrow’s “Sounds Like Radio” broadcast. Next week, look for new recordings from his latest album “In My Mind, Her Image Was Reversed.” Also– played some cool new recordings from a couple favorite people– R.P. Collier sent in some goodies, and I hope you’ll take a while to check out what he’s up to; Duane Pitre also saw to it that “It’s Too Damn Early” listeners could check out his “ED09: Live At The Stone” LP here on the show.
