A Thick Mist

A Thick Mist (August 9, 2017)


 
As of this episode, A Thick Mist is no longer an exclusively vinyl radio show. It’s still mostly vinyl. My attempts at hooking up the Kaoss Pads to the turntables at the radio station failed, so I was left with two Kaoss Pads and a lingering desire to use them for A Thick Mist. Enter: my iPod, iPad, and a beastly collection of digital music that I never played on AGB Radio. So now I can play up to four tracks live on the air, two of which can include digital versions of records that are impossible to find or prohibitively expensive. I’m pretty psyched about this.

Dug deep into the Heavenly Shore box set on Tompkins Square from a few years ago which was fun. Some of those sermons are just insane.

Got some strong Birdman vibes with the Stockhausen solo percussion alongside Julie Harris and I’m pretty happy with how well the Close Encounters score and King’s College Choir fell in the mix. Also definitely check out the Nordra debut on Sige. Excellent stuff. I’m shocked I only just heard the Laniakea record. It’s my new favorite thing, I’ve been listening to it nonstop, total ritual doomed space drone weirdness, I fucking love it.

Lots of premium mixing in this one: Growing & Milton Feher’s guided relaxation techniques, Watusi ceremonial drums & old New England chorals, Aeronaut & Vietnamese song poems, and Rale & Abraham Brun’s cantorials

A weird thing happened with this recording. None of the sounds from the microphone got recorded (yes the mic was turned on). I trimmed out all of the talk breaks because without vocals this episode would’ve just had Ash Koosha’s “Feather” on low volume repeating every 30 minutes or so. Also, I had to mix this down to mono because the turntables were only coming out of one channel. Bad day for recoding, I guess.

I forgot how massive that Cough song is. Wish it was pressed at 45 so I could slow it down even more. The recording of a surgery mixed with Aquarelle and Locrian/Mamiffer is A+ in my opinion. Also don’t miss the new Ustalost vinyl from Gilead. So sexy.

The mask in the photo comes with the Palestine & Schaefer collab on Desire Path, designed by Chris Koelle, so naturally I had to put it on while I was spinning that and some Bengali tunes.

Kevin Gan Yuen’s solo debut of black minimalism goes surprisingly well with Bulgarian folk music. And I’m glad to have recently found a record of Ferlinghetti reading his 30-minute anti-Nixon poem because it’s sadly still so relevant.

Lots of long stuff this episode and a little more dark & heavy tunes than usual. I forgot how that Vangelis song starts out (which is like kinda funky super 70s soundtrack stuff) so it’s hilarious when Tolkien starts reading from The Hobbit, it sounds like a clown show until the music switches gears a few minutes in. Also, the artist and album names for the Orthodox chants may be completely off. I have no idea. If you know, please clue me in.

Not sure why the Morricone song I played at the start of the show didn’t get recorded (it was just silence in the audio file), so apologies for that. Very excited about the Dracula reading alongside Deathstench & Phurpa and Aaron Dilloway. Also, why isn’t Clarence Ashley more famous?

A Thick Mist (May 10, 2017)


 
Got a show chock full of new droney noisy experimental shit including all 3 of the new Important releases, one of the new Deathprod reissues (GET ON THAT), and the debut from Thalassa (William Fowler Collins & Aaron Turner’s new project). Also got some sludgey Swamp Witch on 45 slowed down to 33, Steve Allen talking about home computers in 1983, the resurrection of Part Chimp, and Peruvian folk played on top of Charlemagne Palestine.

The recording equipment started recording in WAV (even though it was set to MP3) so I had to stop the recording because I didn’t have enough room to save a 2 hour long WAV. That’s why the first song by Doc Evans doesn’t show up in the recording. Sorry!

I finally figured out the new recording equipment so this episode should sound fine. Got to play a bunch of stuff from the Lomax box set on Mississppi, Root Hog Or Die and I found out about Ánde Somby and yoiking from Josh Mason on Twitter, so it seemed fitting to play Somby & Mason together. Also, I fucking love Ragana you guys. You need to get on that shit if you haven’t already. Everything they do is amazing.

Well, I recorded the whole episode this time but I still have the clipping issue. The good news is I’m 99% what the problem is and next week’s episode should sound like a million bucks.

I can’t get over how amazing that Abdul Rahman Al-Gheid song is. Unlike anything else I’ve heard. Utterly entrancing.

I apologize for this recording being a total mess. New equipment was installed for recording the broadcasts and this was my first time using it. There were two main problems. 1: It recorded a WAV file instead of MP3 and I didn’t have enough disk space to record the whole episode. This is easily fixable in the future but this show got cut off at about 80 minutes in. I included the playlist for the rest of the episode without timestamps below because why not. 2: The new equipment has more settings which I’ll need to mess with because this recording got clipped even though the live output wasn’t clipping. Not sure why that happened, so I can’t guarantee the next episode will sound perfect (it might even sound worse) but I’ll figure things out eventually. Also, I brought along a 10″ haftarah record that I didn’t realize was a 78 so that was pretty disappointing.

On the bright side, the half-hour stretch starting with The North Sea is especially excellent in my opinion, so you have that to look forward to.
