This week on Mindtrain I opened the show with a lovely acoustic song by Mia Doi Todd from her CD Zeroone, a fine release I happened upon at the thrift store where I worked last winter. That was followed by a set dedicated to our beleaguered and beloved planet Earth, including one great long piece by Pharoah Sanders and Leon Thomas, and a cult classic by David Axelrod: Earth Rot (as timely today as when it was released back in 1970).
There was quite a bit of synth-based post-punk / post-industrial / new wave stuff in the show, and more of those fabulous Monstrous recordings that Andrew Liles has been putting out since last year. The last hour of the program featured an archival recording of a work in Just Intonation by microtonal composer Catherine Christer Hennix, The Electric Harpsichord – a hypnotic drone-based Minimalist masterpiece in the tradition of La Monte Young, recorded in 1976 but not released till 2010, in an expensive edition by Die Schachtel.
Please Note: We’ve been having technical issues with our live stream here at Radio Valencia during the past week. You may hear some intermittent signal dropouts during the first thirty minutes of the podcast for this show, but the rest of the program should sound fine.
The playlist gives artist name, song title, and album title (in that order). A space between lines of text indicates the break between sets where track announcements were made.
