Electro-Magnetism: Episode 8

r-1378184-12143986611

My my what a lovely assortment of tunes this afternoon! It is simply gorgeous out and here I go working in my room all day – at least I’ve got the window open and the 55 degree winds of warmth and freshness blowing in.

And yes, I totally spaced on doing last week’s mix. Bad me, bad me. My friend Joe called me out on it and deservedly so!

Anyways, one of my favorite tracks of the moment is “Somewhere In The Night” by French band Stereo from 1982. Minimal Wave has recently re-released their album of the same name and it looks fabulous!

Check out the re-release here.

There are a couple D.A.F. tracks from the “Absolute Body Control” 12″…though I’m sad to say that the wonderfully funky song of the same name at the end of this mix came out sounding horrible. My apologies!

Listen to it here.

Electro-Magnetism: Episode 5 (totally)

azul-y-negro

The saga continues! After surviving the holiday insanity I am back on schedule with another installment of Electro-Magnetism.  This one is seriously all over the map.  After delving into the old Snow Robots comps from Suction Records I recently discovered the album “The View From Your New Home” by The Mitgang Audio from 2003. Not sure why it took me so long.  I also was just feeling in the mood for the epicness that is “Symphony Electrique”.  Some days are just like that.

And I apologize for some sub-par sound quality on some tracks. I noticed right towards the end of the set that the treble had been cut (due to a magic button I didn’t know existed) on one of the channels on the mixer. Woops on that shit.

Dance in yer pants and enjoy!

(cover for Confusing Outsides)

I never really gave a hoot about this local fellow until I heard him DJ at Wierd at Home Sweet Home a month or so ago. I was enjoying his set which was full of carefully selected unique minimal wave tunes and then there was one that seemed like it had just landed from another planet. My friend and I turned to each other with a mutual look of “what IS this?!” and ran up to the DJ booth to ask him. In a humorously humble way he showed us his own record thinking we didn’t know who he was or that he had created it.

This isn’t the same song because I have now overplayed it to high heaven, but here’s another one I like:

Martial Canterel- “New Death” (from Confusing Outsides, 2005)

News on the street is he’ll be performing live this Wednesday at Weird at Home Sweet Home (131 Christie) with his friend Liz as Xeno and Oaklander. I am so there.

Speaking of Minimal Wave, don’t forget Veronica’s incredible minimal wave radio show on East Village Radio tonight at 10pm (or you can download the show and listen to it later).
