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 :)

(B)rain Dance by Johnny Blue!

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!

The Prodigy Experience!

Hi everyone,

Back when I was a bit spanglier than now, wearing clothes I thought were funny, reading books not half as strange as I thought they were, I fell into the Prodigy, hard. This debut album of theirs came out in '92. I used to get super high and listen to it in my room, on headphones, super loud, dance in my socks, like I was some kind of secret explosion.

OK, OK, I did that again last night. Super high, super loud, super fun :)

Medeski, Martin, & Wood's 20!

Hi everyone,

Allaboutjazz.com writes about this album: "In an ongoing celebration of its twentieth anniversary, Medeski Martin & Wood released twenty original recordings in digital form over the course of 2011. Sequenced in the order in which the tracks were released, the collection as a whole flows with the expert pacing of an MMW performance and, in truth, with much the same artful pacing as their best studio albums, such as Combustication (Blue Note, 1999)."

They don't tour as much as they did, but MMW have made a lot of great music over the years. This is a really nice stop along the way. Two hours of it! Including an older song to fill it out :)

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard's Flying Microtonal Banana!

Hi everyone,


I found this album somewhat randomly, but love these Aussie guys already. Here's what Pitchfork.com says about this record:

"Flying Microtonal Banana was the product of Gizzard king Stu Mackenzie acquiring a custom-made guitar modified for microtonal tuning, which allows for intervals smaller than the semitones that govern Western music. And since the new guitar could only be played with similarly tuned instruments, he reportedly paid his bandmates $200 each to also get their gear tricked out with microtonal capabilities."

And it weirdly nicely rocks end to end, whether you know the details or not! Enjoy!
