More archived shows to catch up with from the weekend! Thanks to Stan and Carol (aka Serious Moonlight Sonatas) at WFMU, Burl Veneer at WVUD‘s Permutations, and Lee from Mad Wasp Radio’s Kites & Pylons for programming music from Farewell, Doomed Planet! on their incredible shows. So much good stuff to hear on each of these!
Blair Millen from The Letter just posted an 8/10 review rating for Farewell, Doomed Planet! alongside a very thoughtful analysis that’s still making me blush. For example, “…while Whaliens is as good as anything by Loscil and Cosmonaut Chorus is sibling-rivalry to Julianna Barwick, this is a distinctly unique take on electronic music that demands celebration.” You can read the full review over on the blog.
This horror soundtracks (and music that could be on horror soundtracks) episode of CJSW’s Noise show is so good, and I’m not just saying that because it includes “Harm.” Come for the Mica Levi, Nina Rota, and Jocelyn Pook, stay for the Petra Haden “Psycho” main theme + so much more. Listen on the CJSW website.
Tim Sweeney of KAOS’s Gumbo YaYa show put together a New Orleans music gift guide with Farewell, Doomed Planet!, “a musical composition that Greta Thunberg might embrace – ethereal, haunting and mesmerizing.” CDs are still available on Bandcamp and digital downloads are available wherever you can think of. See the gift guide here, and listen to the corresponding show below.
