Oh Messy Life – August 17, 2023 Show Notes

Track 1: Tom Bickley – Repose for solo alto recorder in g

If you are listening in stereo you should hear some stereo effects on this track.

Track 2: Ensemble Diglossia – elegy: Thomas Edison and Emile Berliner

Going back to 2000 for a release I missed at the time, elegy: Thomas Edison and Emile Berliner. The ensemble put together for this CD blows my mind, so many of my favorite bay area creative musicians: “Steve Adams, Beth Custer, Ben Goldberg, Dan Plonsey; Tom Yoder, Carla Kihlstedt, Jenny Scheinman, Tara Flandreau, Matthew Brubeck, Trevor Dunn, Scott Amendola, Gino Robair, Karen Stackpole, Rob Burger, Myles Boisen, John Schott”

Track 3: Band Nada Kentjana – Djaleuleudja

I misspoke on the air, this is actually from Soundways Records, a release of theirs entitled, Padang Moonrise: The Birth of the Modern Indonesian Recording Industry (1955​-​69).

Track 4: TEKE::TEKE – Doppelganger

Another track from their recent release, Hagata.

Track 5: The Invisible Hands – Tarako

The Invisible Hands are a newer project from Alan Bishop of the Sun City Girls.

Track 6: Jiro Inagaki & His Soul Media

Found this one via Bandcamp promo email.

Track 7: The Bombay Royale – The Raan Of Kutch

Going back to check out another track from The Bombay Royale.

Track 8: Homeboy Sandman – Then We Broke Up

The little bit at the end about how an active relationship was still worth it even if the relationship eventually ended spoke to me.


Jihad continues to release collaborations non-stop, this track is from the
RAWK 2 release.

Track 10: DANK GOBLINS – West Bay Requiem (Destruction)

Another mind-blowing track from this West Bay super group, I can’t wait till the full album, Fruity Cigars, releases next month.

Another find via Bandcamp promotional email.
