Oh Messy Life – September 28, 2023 Show Notes
Track 1: John Luther Adams – Morningfieldsong
Bandcamp published a guide to John Luther Adams‘ music and this track caught my ear.
Track 2: John Metcalfe – Canopy
Found this one via Bandcamp promo email.
Track 3: Kojun – Dancing In The Lotus Garden
I think some folks over on Mastodon were talking about this one. It’s from the early 90s but it gives me serious 80s movie soundtrack vibes.
Track 4: abracadabra – in a photo
Found this one via the KALX charts. I’m amazed at how perfectly they capture some early post punk sounds, this one reminding me a lot of Lizzy Mercier Descloux.
Track 5: USCPSC – Protect Ya Noggin’
I saw folks on Mastodon saying that the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission had produced some public service songs that were actually kind of fun. And like I said on the show, please do wear a helmet while riding a bike, two of my friends were recently hit by cars while biking.
Track 6: Brontez Purnell – Girl From Ghost Town
Locak punk legend Brontez took things in a more electronic direction on the recent album, No Jack Swing. This came out a few months ago, but I was waiting to find a good spot to fit it into the show.
Track 7 – Crayola Eyes – Spectrum (For Sonic Boom)
Fun stuff from Jakarta, Indonesia that I found via the KZSU A-File!
Track 8: Lewsberg – The Corner
Think I mighta heard this band on WFMU?
Track 9: Me Lost Me – Eye Witness
Found this one via WFMU’s frequently played records page.
Track 10: Laddio Bolocko – As If By Remote
I was trying to find a track that fit with Dank Goblins, and so I dipped back into the 1990s for this one.
Track 11: Dank Goblins – Chestnut Nights
Another track from their album, Fruity Cigars. I’m guessing the track title might be a reference to a legendary Redwood City punk house on Chestnut Street.
Track 12: Neon Kittens – People In Glass Houses
Another BandCamp promo email find.
Track 13: The Legless Crabs – Earth Death for Satan
I found this one a few weeks ago and the chorus just stuck in my head.
Track 14: The Invisible Hands – Kids on Bikes
Going back for another track from this recent project featuring John Bishop of the Sun City Girls.
Track 15: Merlin Coleman – Mouse Bird Sausage
From an album or reworked fairy tails, The Goat Girls Missive.
Track 16: Ali Landaeta – Flor Rebelde
Another amazing old recording released by Canary Records, this time a maestro of the four sting Cuarto guitar.
Track 17: Will Bernard and Beth Custer – Glistening Spirit
From the album, Sky.
