Playlist 17.11.13 (8:33 pm)

Gracing Utility Fog (guest-hosted by Heli Newtown) tonight are the electric (ironically, they all play acoustic instruments) and energetic Sydney act, The Crooked Fiddle Band.

As I went with the intention of going with an “all acoustic/unplugged” theme for this week’s show, there were a few electronic/glitch-based releases this week that were just too hard to ignore. Death Grips maintain their D.I.Y and giving-the-finger-to-major-labels practice by springing upon us a new and typically abrasive album (which is available for FREE!), ‘Government Plates’. Plus, Autechre’s ‘L-Event’ EP had finally hit Australian shores this week.

But, as you can tell, the playlist progressively turned into what I had initially planned. Starting off with the glitched out stringed improv. stylings from Sydney’s Tangents, to the stunning folk stylings of Chantal Acda, which was subsequently complimented by the compositional force of Teho Teardo in collaboration with former Bad Seed and current Einstürzende Neubauten powerhouse,  Blixa Bargeld.

Oh, and yeah… The Crooked Fiddle Band were interviewed (swell bunch o’ guys and gal), where Eastern European instruments, obscure youtube clip discoveries, and Steve Albini had been discussed. They also delivered an animated, yet intimate performance, too.
