Last pledge drive show for a while, and so I stick to keeping it themed. The theme today is Zoe Muth’s recent trip to the Bell Studios in Bryan, TX. Zoe is from Ballard, WA, and someone who I first came across while I was living up there in Anacortes. Karl Blau and I were to play the Tractor Tavern in Ballard, and Zoe was playing a couple days after us. I looked her up to see what we were getting in to, and really was smitten with her work. Since being at KEOS I’ve played her pretty often on my morning show, and was really happy to see that she was coming to do an in-studio performance last Saturday. I stuck around after my country show and ran the board for them. You can hear the entirety of their excellent set peppered throughout today’s show.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
The Black
Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers
Group X
Ethan Master of the Hawaiian Ukulele
Blaze Foley

For my first show of the pledge drive (donate now), I keep it more KEOS-centric than usual and play songs that I have recorded either at the KEOS Bell Studio, or out during a KEOS live event.
I also mix in some stuff from the library and one request that was just funky enough to make the cut.

Title: A Deeper Understanding (full mix)
Artist: DJ Noggin
Album: A Deeper Understanding
Date: 2012

This mix is seriously about 5 years in the making. Long ago, my homey Robsi asked me for a mix of extremely mellow house music that he could study to. Maybe you could call me a perfectionist, because here on the eve of the last test he might ever have to take, I feel the tracklist is complete. And I mean that – had I done it at any point prior, some of these excellent tracks would have been omitted seeing as they weren’t released yet.
It’s a subdued and melodic affair, straight to the dome, releasing tension amidst an omnipresent hope and optimism.
Put it on late night, put it on out of your mind, or do as intended, pop in the earbuds, crack open the law books, and get absolutely no studying done.
Includes hits from, but not limited to:
Shackleton
Sascha Funke
Ellen Allien and Apparat
Golden Boy and Miss Kittin

Two special things going on with this show:
1) First 30 min I go through my newest batch of new vinyl – this is a rarity for me as I tend to stick to the bargain bins.
2) the rest of the show is entirely flying blind through a box of about 200 records that Schux got on clearance in Austin (formerly from Backspin stock RIP).
So basically, I have no idea what I’m getting into – C-Monster keeps handing me records randomly pulled from the box and I keep throwing em on or vetoing them (the veto only happened about 3 times on some uber-trance and drum’n’bass that just wouldn’t work with the tempos we were at).

Back in December, DJ Dag-Nab-It and I had the pleasure of being asked to provide the ambiance at a wedding here in town. The criteria was unique – keep it classy and make it feel like post-WWII.
Well we had a blast doing this one. Kind of a beautiful set up to the actual event as well – Dag-Nab-It scored some great records from Uncle “Smokey” Al Hanson (thanks Uncle Al), and I found the main record that was requested literally on the last dig I went on.

Herb Alpert

Title: Live from Stafford 20 December 2008
Artist: Bananahat
Album: Live from Bryan, TX
Date: 2008

When all three members of Bananahat happened to convene in Bryan, Texas around the Christmas of 08, good things happened. SkullF*cker had a show booked at Stafford, and along with Bryce Clayton Eiman, Bananahat was around to pull the electro-noise-house vibes out of the winter downtown air.
Technically, this was Bananahat plus, as we had two at-large members join us on stage in masks and stuff. There’s laptops, live vocals, a feedbacker modded-sp303, akai mpc, korg er-1, tuning forks, contact mics, more feedback loops, and most importantly the magic of the season and weariness of the road.
The actual performance was about 30 minutes, but the recordings got started a short ways into it. Major props to Houston for hitting that record button…I don’t know how I could ever remember much less describe Bananahat at their finest hour.
Chappy Chanukah to all yall.

Once again, giving yall two tracks today so nobody can blame for taking an ‘out’ on a technicality. I posted the demo version of this track earlier this year, and here is the first recorded version. I played this song at Stafford in December as part of the Skull-you-know-what-er show that I also had participated in the year before. Basically, every musician still in town took over this empty bar in a time when the crowds are gone and so we can dominate and do what we do how we do.
The base chords out of this track came from Buzz samples, the drums all MPC, and this version even includes some An1x for fun.
MPC via a Yamaha DMP-7 (LOVE that sound) mixer to the cd recorder at Stafford.
Chuck originally called this one “Walking home”.

Let’s just go ahead and wrap this up.
Here is one more track from the POC sessions that I kind of recorded on a whim while trying out an auto-tune feeding back on itself.
I’m hesitant to attach this one to the POC releases, but it definitely came from those sessions. Consider it a super secret track that you might find branded as POC, Noggin, or whatever else.
A favorite. (and a throwback to tuesdays post ;]).

Reeeeallly close to wrapping up the Pictures of Clouds release, but, as is the nature of the beast, it’s a bit of a nebulous thing. More tracks bearing the moniker are still to come, but for the most part, the set is complete and presentable.
This is the intro track that set the stage for what was to come, and also make us feel good about hitting the stop button on the tape player. You know, something is only finished when you deem it so, and it’s good to do that ever so often.
