14: Cemetery Windchimes
Cheerful Nutjob – “Left To Blame” (3.10)
Kemper Norton – “5 Black Yachts For Jean” (5.39)
Dorian Wood – “The Mutual” (5.13)
Brent Wilcox – “Dream After Anime” (0.59)
“Left To Blame” abstractly reminds me of Galaxie 500 for some reason. And that, frankly, is a good enough reason to play it.
It’s not a 4am without Kemper Norton spilling beer somewhere in the background, and here we have “5 White Yachts For Jean,” his remix of Ice Bird Spiral’s ” Five Black Yachts For Jean”
More old friends: Dorian Wood sent me a live version of his song “The Mutual”, with this note: “Bless your heart for posting my song “Kletka ot Sniag” last time. Thanks to you broadcasting it for thousands, I am performing in Stratford-upon-Avon in September. HUZZAH!”
And a bit of fun at the end from yet another, Brent Wilcox, just to let you know we’re all back. If you’re in Alaska, or otherwise capable of receiving KEUL (88.9 Girdwood AK) or KABN-FM (89.7 Kasilof AK), Brent broadcasts SMOKE AND MIRRORS on Sundays, 7-10pm. He posts the playlists at the link above, and they actually make me want to spend time in Alaska.
Next time: stuff by people you haven’t heard before.
