Sudden Worker Happiness

Oh Messy Life – July 21, 2022 Show Notes

Track 1: Bonfire Madigan – Where the Sky Below Meets The Sea Above

Back in the late 90s, I ran sound when Bonfire Madigan came down to play live on KZSU, and I’ve been a fan ever since.

Track 2: Bonfire Madigan – a Sudden Chill (voice cello mix)

A cover of a song by Arthur Russell.

Traack 3: Bonfire Madigan – Snowfell Summer

While preparing for the radio show I relistened to the entire …from the Burnpile album, and I was struck by the intensity of the internal world the album creates.

Track 4: Chime School – Taking Time To Tell You

Local pop band, found via the Post Consumer Hot New Records page.

Track 5: Jill Lorean – Kneading

From the KZSU A-File

Track 6: Spread Joy – Ich Sehe Dich

Bandcamp reminded me I like this band.

Track 7: Party Dozen – The Worker

Apparently the singer for this band sings into the bell of her saxophone.

Track 8: Melt Yourself Down – Ghosts On The Run

I really liked their 100% Yes album from 2020, so I thought I would see what they were up to now.

Track 9: Unexplained Aerial Phenomenon – Georgia O’Keeffe (feat. Archibald Slim)

Found via Passion of the Weiss

Track 10: Emmanuel Jal & Nyaruach – Gatluak

I heard this on WFMU in 2018 and it’s been stuck in my head ever since.

Track 11: Jenny Scheinman Quartet – Through the Dark

Recorded live at Yoshi’s in 1999.

Track 12: William Parker – Happiness

If you ever have a chance to see William Parker play live with Hamid Drake, I highly recommend it.
