Forgive me listeners, as it’s been six weeks since my last podcast episode. I’ve had my head down finishing up the Masstransfer book for the past 2 months and realized it’s now halfway through March.
This episode catches up on some of the recent releases of the year so far. I’m trying to get a little more upbeat this season as we’re now going on a year of this pandemic (and my two kids haven’t been in school since then). Looking to shake off those winter blahs.
Night Glitter “Radio” (0:00) – the latest in late-night trip-hop from this eclectic Texas duo.
Flyying Colours “Boarding Pass” (4:57) – from the album Fantasy Country out now on the Club AC30 label.
All In the Golden Afternoon “Anymore Anyway” (9:58) – the husband and wife duo of Rachel Staggs and Carlos Jackson, from their 2008 self-titled debut EP on Mind Expansion records
Commentaires “Etrangers à l’intérieur” (13:47) – an array of “vivid analogue synth sequences and dusty, ticking rhythm boxes” from Jon Brooks’ Café Kaput label.
Personal Bandana “Still Sic” (17:58) – an American synth duo with a recent cassette release, This Time Its…, on the Woodford Halse label.
Matthew Shaw “Schlaf zu Fuß” (21:55) – from his latest release Nachtmusik, a dream-induced tribute to Florian Schneider of Kraftwerk.
Cheval Sombre “California Lament” (27:55) – downshifting into a quiet acoustic mood, this is the sound of walking alone on a beach with just your thoughts.
Thalassing “Three Arcs” (32:24) – the Clay Pipe Music label is celebrating its 10-year anniversary by reissuing their first 2 releases, one of which is Thalassing’s debut album.
