Cosmic Church of I Heart Noise and The Thursday Bazaar with Julia Kent

I’m so flattered that the transcendent composer/cellist Julia Kent selected my “Trinity Quadrant Cantata” as one of her two picks for Radio Free Matlock’s Thursday Bazaar with Lippy Kidd last week. Catch the recap on Mixcloud or below:

And a huge thank you to Ilya from one of my favorite music blogs, I Heart Noise, for including my Gertrude Stein rap (lol) on the Camp Radio show Cosmic Church, also now on Mixcloud and with annotated tracklist on the blog:

Tapeta Lucida, The Moderns, and Urban Mutant

Spent today catching up on listening and I’m so glad I did. Both Tapeta Lucida on North State Public Radio and The Moderns on Radio Regent programmed “Blue Moon Frequency #2b [Fall Mix]“, my remix with Geiger Von Müller, on their wonderful shows recently. And DJ BLeeK made a very cool “bittersweet fantasy soundtrack to Ocean Shores Washington’s legendary shipwreck” for the Urban Mutant show on Hollow Earth Radio that includes my “Silent Space Scream” off Music the DMV. Listen to everything via Mixcloud below.

October Recommendation on MacroParentheticals

Author Tyler Weaver of Parenthetical Recluse, a fascinating blog about music, movies, literature, running, Ohio election signage, and so much more, has asked me to contribute a monthly recommendation (probably, mostly, music, but maybe other stuff?) for his MacroParentheticals newsletter. The newsletter comes out every Sunday and is chock full of Tyler’s own current media consumption, musings, “fascinations, perspirations, and whatever else comes to mind,” plus pictures of Tyler’s adorable dogs. For September and October, Tyler asked me for some of my virtual venues to find new music. Part 1 covers my favorite radio programs, and here’s part 2, published last Sunday:

While there’s a seemingly endless array of spaces in which to find new music, it can quickly become overwhelming. Luckily, there are expert curators of indie music who continually introduce me to new and wonderful sounds. So, in this second chunk of recommendations, I’m going to share some of my must-listen podcasts – most focus on electronic music since that’s my jam but some also cover folk, jazz, blues, and classical.

Is This Thing On… Yeah I Know It Sucks… Synth Redneck… Anticipating Nowhere… Vital Weekly… Phantom Circuit (also sometimes on Resonance Extra, Resonance FM)… Ambient Atomic Orbitals… The Independent Music Podcast… Hypnagogue… and, finally, the finest of college and community radio: WTULKALXWFMUCJSWCFBXCFUR.

As always, signup for the newsletters, and you won’t regret it. I’ve heard much wonderful new music thanks to Tyler’s discerning ear, and you certainly will too.
