Oh Messy Life – December 29, 2022 Show Notes
Track 1: mejiwahn – Lumaby feat. hrlum
A coworker mentioned his brothers new album, Beanna, was getting some attention. I checked it out and it turns out his brother is roommates with a former performer on Wednesday Night Live.
Track 2: ssabæ – tous les murs sont des portes
Someone sent around Sasha Frere-Jones’ year in review for music and I checked out a few things and grabbed some tracks for this show.
Track 3: Roméo Poirier Muscle de sable – Jan Jelinek Remix
Another ones from Frere-Jones’ list.
Track 4: Firnwald – Thinkers (with Evaversum)
I think this one might have been recommended on Mastodon.
Track 5: Yves De Mey – SHJP Mann
Another Mastodon find?
Track 6: Yunzero – Cupid Television
And one more from Frere-Jones’ list.
Track 7: Horse Lords – Zero Degree Machine
Seemed like this band was having a moment of hype over on Mastodon.
Track 8: Decolonize Your Mind Society – Mike The Headless Chicken
While folks were talking about how much they dug Horse Lords, other folks jumped into the conversation to recommend this band.
Track 9: Mdou Moctar – Asdikte Akal
Another track from the Afrique Victime album.
Track 10: certone – Jason Lee
From a fun split release, Nerd Rope, with tracks from Spam One and certone, out of Rob’s spareorgan records.
Track 11: SOLTERA – My Heart is 4 Who?
I recently heard Soltera put on a good live show down in Southern California.
Track 12: FRET – 20oz GRIPPER
Apparently an electronic project from Mick Harris or Napalm Death.
Track 13: Junior Disprol – Mugshots 7″ Mix ft Thirstin Howl III & DJ Jaffa (Prod. DJ Alkemy)
I continue to love the production on these Junior Disprol tracks, such rad dirty jazz vibes.
Track 14: the Specials – Ghost Town
In memory of their singer, Terry Hall. I heard this track a while back on a mix from a fellow squirrel watcher. At first the vibe of the track just swept me away. It wasn’t till later that I listened to the lyrics about how too much violence can ruin a music scene, reminding me of various potential west bay venues shut down over the years due to tomfoolery.
