Years Of Rice And Salt's Nothing Of Cities!


Hi everyone,

Soundcloud says, "Years of Rice and Salt is a 6-piece instrumental rock / folk band based in London, United Kingdom. They were formed in Summer ‘08 and released their debut EP entitled Service Bell EP on 31st January 2009. The EP is a themed collection of songs navigating the timeline of a shipwreck through music. The first full-length album, Nothing of Cities was released in June 2011."

That's about it. Their album is great, a slow ambient acoustic burn that sometimes shouts! Enjoy!

‪Chandranada's Valley of the Moon‬ Mix!

Hi everyone,

So this weekend is the final new radio weekend of 2017 for SPRadio. My friend R asked me to make a show for this one with a seasonal feel. So I scrounged around and found on YouTube‪ Chandranada's "Valley of the Moon‬ Mix." Not sure if everyone will get the wintery feel to it, but it feels to me like deep-in-the-dark-smoking-some-nice-green-with-snowflakes-falling music. Enjoy. Season's greetings! :)

Shpongle's Codex VI!

Hi everyone,

I can't tell you Shpongle is. You need to listen and discover for yourself. Somewhere open where you may dance. Somewhere quiet in case you cry out. Somewhere the rest of leaves you to your own bone's zaniness for a little well. Then you listen, and you find out ;)

Golden Retriever's Rotations!

Hi everyone,


Pitchfork.com writes: "The Portland duo Golden Retriever have created their own musical language using bass clarinet and a modular synth rig. Rotations expands their sound, adding 10 classical musicians to the mix." 

I like this description. Finally, this group pushes beyond their musical language, and it beats and breathes and is beautiful.

William Basinski's 92982!

Hi everyone,


I like what Pitchfork.com says about William Basinski's 92982 from 2009: "One day in September of 1982 he was experimenting on the fly, collecting fragments, and maybe hours later the backbone of a piece was made. He called it 92982, a clinical name designating the date of the composition, as if it was just a file to be tucked away. He released the recordings for the first time in 2009, long after he garnered widespread acclaim for his monumental 9/11 elegy The Disintegration Loops."

Dreamy machine music, very emotional, very beautiful. A second week of Basinski for this show is a good thing :)

William Basinski's Shortwavemusic!

Hi everyone,

William Basinski is a NYC-based electronic artist who's been around a long time, but I just discovered. Deep, strange machine dream music. I plan to feature this artist again for sure! :)

MobySongs 1993–1998!

Hi everyone,

I've played Moby a few times on my show, mostly later work. But this great 75 min of music goes into his early work, shows what a genius mofo he was from the beginning. An old friend of mine gave me a tape of this when I was a teenager and I played that tape till it wore out. Still have it. It's great end to end. Wondering if Moby is THAT good? Just listen, and decide :)
