The Signal: EP141

The Signal: EP141 – Exactly 45 minutes of music delivered the old-fashioned way, like your great-grandparents used to enjoy, downloading their music from a website and then trudging back home through the ice wastes to thaw out the notes by a sputtering fire while slurping fish bone stew.

This week we’ve got tones and beats, rhythms from Uganda, ska from Colombia, rockabilly from Germany, rhythm & blues and 80s pop/rock, and some other stuff I’d have a hard time categorizing but sure does sound neat when listened to all in a row.

The Signal: EP140

The Signal: EP140 – For your ears and the rest of you, 45 minutes of music aligned according the whims of one individual, unchecked by society, alone and unceasing. If you’re brave enough to listen, you’ll face beats from computers of some sort, as well as rock ‘n roll from Spain, Peru, Algeria, and the world of surf music. Jazzy sounds and a movie theater’s answering machine. A series of delights and wonders. Do you dare? Do you?

Look into your heart and be judged.

The Signal: EP134 – Exactly 45 minutes of the music you didn’t think you needed. You thought you needed to spend your time learning how to fight with switchblades. Nope. Music. 45 minutes. That’s the key, it turns out.

(I mean, if you’ve got the switchblade already, don’t let me discourage you. Get real good at it. Carve your way through the urban jungles. But when you have some down time, I’ve got some beats and whatnot for you.)

This time out we’ve got dub music from Jamaica, electronic music created by an Iranian-American in Austin with a partner in Portugal via the internet, spooky songs about witches and Frankenstein, dangerous women, jazz, percussion, humming, and sorrow.
