Resonance FM 22.11.17

I opened this episode with a song by Algerian great Warda Al-Jazairia, an obscurity by Hawaiian artist Paul Mark, Ethiopian jazz legend Teshome Meteku, and a contender for my favourite song of the year, Sophia Kennedy's 'Hello, I Found You.' I also played a run of three tracks that subvert or play on the notion of easy-listening/lounge music: first, Sebastian Cabot (Bagheera's voice in Jungle Book) doing a dramatic reading of Bob Dylan's 'Like A Rolling Stone' over an elevator-music backing-track; second, Devo's easy-listening version of their own hit 'Come Back Jonee'; and finally, Z-Rock Hawaii's bonkers 'I Get A Little Taste Of You,' a comedy-noise-pop collaboration between Ween and Boredoms.

This episode opened with a tune I'd been saving for months, Virna Lindt's 'Underwater Boy.' The rest of the episode featured some contemporary Ethiopian pop, a recording by the 'first singer-songwriter,' onomatopoeic dance, a hyperactive video game soundtrack, and new track by South London producer Svetlana. Tickets still available for the next Dig That Treasure! gig here.

I'm going to go ahead and prematurely call this episode a classic. It had a bit of everything: mash-up plunderphonics, MIDI composition, Nepali pop, an all-time Ethiopian great, glitchy ambient folk, Smithsonian "ghetto reali[sm]," country-rock-n-roll and awesome South African rhythms. I love the diversity of this episode, and the general flow/sequencing of it. Tickets for Aldous RH, Wharfwhit and Kiran Leonard at Paper Dress Vintage still available here.

This episode kicked off with a creepy and light-hearted (I guess?) Mormon anthem by Janeen Brady. I followed with a diverse bunch, from Ethiopian oldie Bahta Gebre Hiwot and American Primitive guitarist Suni McGrath to Arabic synth-jam 'Khabarie' by Ihssan El Munzer and the classic 'Sparkling World' by Roberto Caccipaglia and Ann Steel. I also played two tracks by new female producers AMAZONDOTCOM (Los Angeles) and Audrey/Svetlana (South East London). Tickets for Aldous RH, Wharfwhit and Kiran Leonard at Paper Dress Vintage still available here.
