The rest is as you see below... except I got to play another unreleased track from Magnetic Wind's upcoming release "La Petite Morte": "L'enfant fille (Baby Girl)". Very cool. The intro reminds me of Nino Rota's soundtrack to the Fellini film "Cassanova" (one of my favorites...)
Playing a lot of smaller tracks makes for a longer time editing the resulting playlist, makes for a later night getting the podcast ready before bed. Remind of this next week as I'm doing my show...
I'm thinking of using this Flores Funebres track "Depressive Personality Disorder" as kind of a theme song. I suppose I should email and ask the artist if it's ok. Nice short evocative track. Very cinematic.
This week I'm struck again by the quality of releases on the Ambientaria netlabel. This latest one "The Lady or The Tiger" got a lot of play in my car driving around this week and on tonight's show.
Also I get to play several tracks from that Joe Frawley release I was so taken with earlier in the year: "Speak of This to No One". Instead of auditioning music for my show I ended up just listening to that one for a week. Fun to hear it again. And thanks to the ever amazing Mark Stolk for turning me on to Joe Frawley. Awesome...
Starting with this cool release from A Quiet Norway: "Live!", the show breaks into some film music from an Italian Giallo that never was.
My microphone fails me again (actually it's me failing to setup my mic properly, I'll get the hang of this eventually --I'm used to a radio studio what can I say?)
A track from the recent dark and watery release on Earth Mantra: Christian Doil's "Wasser" (saving the rest of this for later), several Saluki Regicide tracks from his recent release on webbed hand records.
John Tocher surveys the free music landscape for new and old releases encompassing the realms of avant garde, experimental, electronic, musique concréte, industrial, dada-ist music. A transplant from the Los Angeles area, he now makes his home in southeast Texas near the border with Louisiana --deep in swamp country, where the ambiance is enhanced by cicadas and the occasional hurricane.
