Playlist 29.10.06 (9:09 pm)

Good evening. Tonight we feature the latest of Wire Mag's bonus CDs, a double CD of music from the Anglo-Portuguese Atlantic Waves festival... Sydney-based violinist/vocalist Melissa Cox brings us her debut album as Black Sesame, and I've got some other stringy stuff from A Hawk and a Hacksaw, with the two most atypical tracks off their latest album ;)
Anticon's Dosh has a great new album out too, tracks from which will no doubt get played on the next few shows, and there's more of the usual mix of new & old, including a selection of tunes from Vert's colourful past. And finally, a bit of a sampling of Mary Anne Hobbes's brilliant Warrior Dubz comp on Planet µ plus a few other dubsteppy goodies.

Playlist 15.10.06 (10:06 pm)

Tonight brought more new gems from round the world... Starting with Vert's new album, which is a corker — his first to feature vocals, it's a kind of twisted electronic vaudeville or something.

Lots more tunes too, a number of which are taken from Feral Media's compilation CD to go with the current issue of Mess + Noise (Sept/Oct 06). And I went overtime tonight as we sorted things out...

Playlist 08.10.06 (10:14 pm)

Starting tonight with the opening track from ollo's new album — every time I listen to the album I repeat this track about 3 times before I can go forward. Beautiful.
Among the new offerings for tonight are Subtle's newie For Hero, For Fool, and (Chris) Clark's amazing Body Riddle; I only picked them up a few days ago and they're both very dense and will take some time to properly sink in, so expect plenty more from them in coming weeks!
We also had some great Middle Eastern violin meets drum'n'bass from Filastine, who I missed out on seeing play live tonight in Sydney. *sigh* Sunday night gigs, I dunno!
