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 :)

Primal Scream's Screamadelica!

Hi everyone,

Sometimes when I have a long Saturday night, no plans, raining, or cold, I'll hit my old pipe and put on this record. For an hour, it's long ago, somewhere else, and time is happy and gone. So fine :)

Hi everyone,

I found this 2-hour mix on YouTube and fell for it right away. Nice tribal flow for dancing away. Give it a try & see if it takes you all the way there :)

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard's Murder of the Universe!

Hi everyone,


Murder of the Universe is the second of this Aussie prog-rock band's promised five albums this year. Second on my show this year too, as I'm going to follow their boldness through. Flying Microtonal Banana was good, but this one is awesome, over the top, unbelievably prog rock good. Thinking of The Who's best, and in a really good way. Jump in! Enjoy!
