Imaginary Mono Vertigo

A flier for the Oh Messy Life radio program consisting of handwritten text on scraps of paper cut from a catalog laying on a table.

Oh Messy Life – December 15, 2022 Show Notes

Track 1: Orville Peck – Daytona Sand

From the KZSU A-File. That vocal sound just amazes me.

Track 2: the Astronauts – Baja

I ran across a cover of this one recently, but decided I wanted to hear the original more.

Track 3: bran(…)pos – raw dog soufflé

A little bit of organ music posted to YouTube.

Track 4: Lalo Shifrin – Hotel Daniels

After I listened to the previous bran(…)pos track, YouTube played me this Lalo Shifrin track, and I liked the seque so much I decided to recreate it here. (YouTube doesn’t get 100% of the credit, I had been listening to some Lalo Shifrin there earlier in the week.)

Track 5: Grupo Siglo XX de Rioja – El Pasito De Miriam

From the compilation album: Perú Selv​á​tico – Sonic Expedition into the Peruvian Amazon 1972​-​1986

Track 6: Amadou & Mariam – Bali Maou

From a live album, Eclipse, with interludes between every song.

Track 7: Etran de L’Aïr – Tchingolene

Found this one via Bandcamp promo email.

Track 8: Esmerine – Imaginary Pasts

Maybe there’s something post-rock in the water up there in Montreal.

Track 9: THE ACHARIS – (one can only know your name) What a Shame

Another track from the Blue Sky / Grey Heaven album

Track 10: Joe Rainey – once the reaper

From the newish once the reaper / d​.​m​.​ii release.

Track 11: Site Nonsite – Mono No Aware

I heard about this one over on Mastodon.

Track 12: Ariel Zetina – Cyclorama

I found this one via one of Bandcamp’s “Best Albums of 2022” features.

Track 13: Felix Kubin – Atomium Vertigo

I heard about Felix Kubin over on Mastodon.

Track 14: HEADBOGGLE – Fusion GRP

From the Defective Opsix Demo, described on Bandcamp as a “Micro EP of tracks created using a OpSix with a defective/broken display and an echo effect pedal.”

Track 15: Charles Stepney – Mini Mugg

From Step on Step, a collect of home recordings from the late Chicago producer Charles Stepney. I believe this track consists of Stepney’s daughters talking about his Moog synth and his favore television programs.

Track 16: Adeem the Artist – Carolina

I heard about this one on Mastodon. I found the life essay from Adeem on the albums Bandcamp page incredibly moving.
