Radio Show – 13 May 2018 – Episode 371

Dark nostalgic and melancholic is the new funk today!  Kat Sav presents all things Dark Mofo (Museum of Old and New Art Festival of Music and Art), this year’s and past year’s musicians performing at the festival in Hobart Tasmania, and an overall dark and mysterious Twin Peaks theme with Rebekah Del Rio closing the show out with Love Hurts.  At times dark, at times upbeat it’s a show that explores the highs and lows of love and self-expression.

Our Solar System – Origins

“Dressed as druids on their way to a sacred baptism, Our Solar System could just as easily be mistaken for a burgeoning religious cult in Stockholm as they would a group of spaced-out krautrockers.  Like The Polyphonic Spree but on heavier opiates, Our Solar System’s newest album Origins marks their fifth full-length since their genesis in 2013, their fourth on psych label Beyond Beyond is Beyond.

If your perfect prescription leans towards mesmerizing motorik and transcendental atmospheres by way of Neu!, Cluster or Amon Duul, then Origins is essential listening.  Slow burning, but steadily rising, tracks like En Bit Av Det Tredje Klotet and Monte Verita pulsate forward with a focused intensity, ever-growing into their ferocious conclusions”.

Dust to Digital

“…discovering old stories in sound archives and creating new stories to complement them – transforming sampled archival material including field recordings, transcriptions, and historic recordings into newly re-contextualized sound collages…” the fantastic Dust to Digital label…

Rawhead & Bloodybones…

“Seven miles north of Hyden, Kentucky there’s a town called Dryhill. Locals know it also as Hell for Certain and spelt as spoken in the book South from Hell-fer-Sartin: Kentucky Mountain Folk Tales, the best-known book by folklorist Leonard Ward Roberts. The folk tales that Brian Harnetty samples in Rawhead and Bloodybones can be found there. Roberts collected his tales “on the north side of the Pine Mountain range,” in the late 1940s and early 1950s. At the school in Hyden, he found Jane Muncy, aged 11, who’d heard “Merrywise” from the grandmother raising her…

Jonathan Wilson and Laraaji – Loving You

Just in case you missed it in Episode 369 a reminder about this – it was at the end of the show but in the middle of the Mixcloud.

The Golden Apples have been fans of Jonathan Wilson for a long time… we loved the song and video for Desert Raven way back in 2011.

Loving You is a beautiful Jonathan Wilson track featuring collaboration with Laraaji a self-produced tape of spiritual and devotional songs made in the mid-’80s. You need to check out Vision Songs Vol 1. on Numero “ the Laraaji album like no other, located at the intersection of new age and gospel, his outlier and magnum opus, the feel-good DIY tape of the century. Casio synth jams recorded at spiritual retreat guest rooms and a tiny bedroom on the Upper West Side..”

This is the earliest episode of Laraaji’s Manhattan Group W public access cable program “Celestrana” known to exist. Laraaji’s then-partner and collaborator Vina Devi joins him to discuss crystals and create beautiful improvised music.
