Rest in peace, Charles Cooper.
Highlights this week include music from lutenist Jozef Van Wissem, new Black Moth Super Rainbow, highlights from the always excellent Raster-noton label, new music from MV & EE, as well as Gregor Samsa, Giuseppe Ielasi, and Telefon Tel Aviv. That Gregor Samsa record will not be available until the second week of March and the Electric Wizard featured was indeed from a bootleg pulled from a radio station whose identity I’ve yet to pin down. Sorry about that, but the record is way out of print, fairly rare, and I haven’t bothered looking to see if anyone’s ripped a better copy or not.
I’ve updated my blog in a number of places. Lots of reviews have been added and I’ve updated information about myself. Interviews are still in the works and I’m now linking directly to the ZBC Archive streams. Remember that all shows are available for two weeks only. After that they disappear. I will not be uploading any shows once they’re going, end of story.
Expect to hear more new music next week; Raster-noton is off to a good start this year and the new Atom TM will likely be featured. I’ve also been listening to a band called Timber Timbre lately and rumors are flying about that new Bonnie “Prince” Billy material (from a live radio session) is floating around on the web. If I can find it, you know I’ll play it.
Thanks for listening.
NOTE: the ZBC Archives automatically index shows by the time they start – you may have to fast forward a minute or two into the MP3 to find the start of the show.
