Playing tracks by
HMV Weather Effects lp, 1935, Siskyiou, Tom Waits, Meg Baird, Thurlow Lieurance & Clement Barone and more.
The programme kicks off with a recording of wind howling across a prarie somewhere from a HMV weather effects album, and closes with footsteps walking on snow and ‘thin underbrush’ from 1936. In between there are earthy new sounds from today’s folky explorers (Meg Baird; Siskyiou; Peter Broderik), gnarly old dons (Tom Waits; Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry) and beautiful crumbly ambience (Colophon/Jefre Cantu Ledesma; Charlatan).
In short, more folk, ambience, reggae and blue tunes, all with added sound effects and original vinyl crackle . . .
