Playing tracks by
Future Islands, Eyedress, Matmos, Alien Whale, Roll The Dice and more.
This show was 4th in the global soundtrack chart, 17th in the global punk chart, 21st in the global folk chart and 60th in the global ambient chart.
Broadly, there was a kind of genre flow to this week's show. We began with a run of electronic pieces of different shades - Future Islands, Eyedress, Matmos with some mental radio, new Roll the Dice an industrial meltdown w/ sumptuous strings and culminating in a wonderful track from the debut SlowPlaceLikeHome album, due next month.
The mid-section featured a series of singers - Cormac O Caoimh w/ lovely folk tones from his fine new album, the unforgettable Angel Olsen who plays Cork w/ Jaye Bartell next month, Sontag Shogun from NY feat. the great voice of Liam Singer.
A bit of punk rock in the shape of Thomas Truax and Shonen Knife. And some kosmische to finish from ELBL & the Conny Plank-produced Eno-Moebius-Roedelius. More on the blog.
