The Curated Catastrophe – Reflections On The Present Moment

May 31, 2020
4:45 pm

We’d had an entirely different radio show planned for today, but when it came time to start assembling the program, the world had tilted further off its axis, and we were no longer in the mood for light entertainment. Today’s show features a lot of protest music, soul, and hip-hop, and a lot of varying viewpoints. Some of it is angry, some of it is hopeful. It was cathartic to put it together. I hope you’ll give it a listen. Podcast link at the bottom.

This week was a more “normal” episode of The Curated Catastrophe, as neither Malderor nor Shey had much time to prepare. So there’s a mix of brand new releases, old psych 45s, and some straight-up pop music. And a whole lot of the new Fiona Apple album.

Malderor – The “Sad Songs” Episode

April 12, 2020
5:31 pm

Today’s show was always going to be a bit odd. Shey and Malderor are still doing the remote ‘exquisite corpse’ thing, passing off files over the week to react to. Shey picked a theme about embracing one’s sadness about the state of the world, and overcoming it. So there are some sad, sad songs in the mix this week, but also some happier songs to help you recover. Features new music from Beans on Toast, Bobby Conn, and Black Grape, and also dips into the Blues at points. Malderor plays some of the saddest songs he knows, and Shey plays Lorde. Give it a listen! It’ll cheer you up…eventually.

Malderor – Radio Grab-Bag!

February 26, 2019
