In fact, the whole city was now asleep, part of an immense unconscious Europe, while he himself crawled about on a forgotten traffic island like the nightmare of this slumbering continent.

“Fear,' Jason said, “can make you do more wrong than hate or jealousy. If you're afraid you don’t commit yourself to life completely; fear makes you always, always hold something back.'

- Philip K. Dick: Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said (1974)

A mix of field recordings from my porch and in front of my house, rain and cicadas and drones.

Some experimental music, some noise. Was a strange show. I had to go where the sound led me.

Thank you to Mystified for creating his "Polka Drones". I had challenged him as kind of a dare over Jack Hertz kidding me about the 78s I play at the end of my show (as if polka music could be a bad thing.) Mystified pulled through admirably. I knew he would...

A track from the new The Implicit Order release: "Sleeper Catcher/Time Exposure" is featured. I wanted to play more but the general sound of the show led me elsewhere. I do love me some The Implicit Order though, this one a collaboration with artist Mary Shelley.

Tracks from the new Loopool: the Field Recordings Project are featured.

The show closes with a track from the new release from Ilse: "Soundtracks Vol. 4", Ayn Morgan's: "Compartmental".

Silence. It flashed from the woodwork and the walls; it smote him with an awful, total power, as if generated by a vast mill. It rose from the floor, up out of the tattered gray wall-to-wall carpeting. It unleashed itself from the broken and semi-broken appliances in the kitchen, the dead machines which hadn’t worked in all the time Isidore had lived here.

- Philip K. Dick, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (1968)

Review at Sadayatana #79

Some good Houston noise from Infant Mortality Rate, released through Brownian Motion.

Cool tracks from Trust.Falls, from their release "The Road To Pinewood". This is a nice fun dark album with some cool samples. I bitched about it being released "all rights reserved" and they changed it to creative commons. I'm glad they did. Thank you.

Some of the new release from Impulsive Habitat "Mecha / Orga" is featured.

Released today on Buddhist on Fire: Zreen Toyz "Underground Klang", an excerpt from the track "The Schnitzler Suite" is featured. "Juicy, junior. Real juicy".

Thanks again to Shane Morris for providing some shortwave samples. I hope he will do some more he has such a great ear.

Thanks also to Ayn Morgan for allowing the use of the recording where she is sanding.

Dedicated to Siskiyou.

From the useless pole lamp in the living room it oozed out, meshing with the empty and wordless descent of itself from the fly-specked ceiling. It managed in fact to emerge from every object within his range of vision, as if it—the silence—meant to supplant all things tangible.
