The first set this week, after a new live track from Sweden's GOAT, is given over entirely to singer/songwriters, namely Angel Olsen, Tracy Bryant, Bobb Trimble (who I played because of Tracy Bryant's resemblance to him, intentional or not), John Maus, and weird old Gary Wilson. When I lived in NYC, I went to the premiere of You Think You Really Know Me: The Gary Wilson Story (a pretty decent documentary that's long out of print on DVD and not available for streaming anywhere as far as I can tell) and after the screening saw the reclusive Mr. Wilson himself, appropriately enough, standing alone in a rear corner of the theater.
In the show's middle set we hear from Gregg Kowalsky, of Date Palms, with a track from his new solo album L'Orange L'Orange, which of late has become my go-to reading music, a role that over the years has been held by, among others, Miles Davis's Sketches of Spain (in high school), Boards of Canada's Music Has The Right To Children (in college) and William Basinski's Disintegration Loops (in grad school).
Leading off the final set, I play what I presume must be Acid Mothers Temple's sequel to their Anthem of the Space, which I played several episodes back: Anthem of the Outer Space (it's even further out than just space, see). And then I end with Suzanne Ciani's recently reissued soundtrack to the children's operetta (how many people can say they've scored an operetta, let alone one made for children?) Help, Help, The Globolinks!
