Radio Show – 15 October 2017 – Episode 342

‘From the Canyon to the Coast’

Claude Mono’s ‘From the Canyon to the Coast’…is a loosely themed mixtape in the Golden Apples theme way – its a musical journey from Laurel Canyon to Venice Beach but the long way through the desert and the Spahn Ranch…a journey that touches Americana, Freak Folk, Stoner Desert Rock, West Coast Yacht Rock and other hallucinatory sounds – its music that is juxtaposed and thrown out of context with goal of bringing you perfect happiness…

The Eternal Children

“Its ok…Vashti digs it”

– Devendra Banhart

It may be 2017 and we may be the last but The Golden Apples of the Sun still likes exploring new weird and freak folk…after all that album was one of the sources for the show’s name

Excerpt from The New Weird Generation  – 2010 post over at Notes on Metamodernism

“So, what is New Weird America?

Whoever glances at the programme booklet of the Free Folk Fest will see that the names of Devendra Banhart, CocoRosie, Joanna Newsom, Akron/Family, and Antony & the Johnsons are missing. While these very artists are now called the standard-bearers of the genre, more obscure acts were listed such as the extremely rhythmic, psychedelic freak rock of Sunburned Hand Of The Man, the minimalism of the Charalambides, and the acid folk of Six Organs Of Admittance, among others. The Brattleboro festival nonetheless should be called the cradle of free folk, mainly because many of the artists present at the festival were selected a year later by Devendra Banhart for his limited edition album The Golden Apples Of The Sun, an album he put together at the request of the American art magazine Arthur. On this album, as well as music by direct friends such as the already mentioned CocoRosie, Joanna Newsom and Antony Hegarty, Banhart also selected the music of Jack Rose and Matt Valentine – two key figures at Brattleboro. Matt Valentine of the band Tower Recordings even was the one who co-organized it. The Free Folk Fest, in other words, already contained the binding elements of the otherwise miscellaneous musicians on Banhart’s compilation album. As different as they might be, they belong to the same musical family”.
