Description

After two very special episodes, we're back to just boring old regular episodes like this one, which starts off with Andrew Weatherall (producer for Jah Wobble, the Happy Mondays, and Primal Scream, among others) and the first track off his new album Qualia, whose cover is an homage to/ripoff of (depending on how you view imitative art) the album Tarot, by Walter Wegmüller. This is followed by some absolutely ripping hard psyche from Brooklyn's Honey, some spaced-out post-punk from Detroit's Protomartyr, and some... neo-proto-industrial, to coin a new genre descriptor (think more recent Gnod, for instance) from White Wine (a name that, as I mention on the show, I'm surprised wasn't already taken by some Italians Do It Better, retro-80s type band with a breathy female singer backed by shimmering synth tones)

In the show's middle set (if you haven't caught on by now the show always has three sets, interrupted by me blathering about what I've played but then often going off on tangents about, say, my least favorite day of the week, as I do in this episode) we hear two exemplars of the Japrocksampler list, Les Rallizes Dénudés, and Speed, Glue & Shinki, as well as an amazing bit of unbelievably fuzzed out 60s-retro psych rock from Portland's own White Manna, off their terrific new album Bleeding Eyes. We also hear a slab of psychedelic funk from Billy Preston: the theme to the blaxploitation cult classic Slaughter, starring Jim Brown - hall-of-fame running back, activist, actor, and... unfortunately, occasional beater-upper of women.

Finally, we end with The Breathing Effect, who I can only describe as psychedelic yacht rock. If you wish that, in the late 70s, Boz Scaggs had teamed up to record an album with Pink Floyd, then, well... I think this is a pretty accurate approximation of what may have resulted. And at the very, very, for real end of the show, we have 17 minutes of blissed-out motorik loveliness in the form of A Ride On The Bosphorus by Peter Broderick.
