A Thick Mist

A Thick Mist (September 13, 2017)


 
I got to play one of my all-time favorite songs (“Nine Brothers & The Wolf”) and what might very well be the metal record of the year (As We Cup Our Hands…). Good times all around. Still down to one turntable and I’m not sure when the other will get fixed, but I seem to be managing.

This was a total mess of a show. I forgot my headphones. One of the turntables wasn’t working, which I used twice before noticing. The batteries on one of my Korgs died. Made it through mostly unscathed, though, with some surprisingly excellent moments, like the Deceh/Huxley section and basically the entire closing half hour.

A Thick Mist (August 23, 2017)


 
The Bark Haze / Traum record is a weird collab/split picture disc that plays from the inside out, ends in a locked groove, and each channel has one band’s music on it. So unless you’re playing the record through a mixer that lets you pan all the way to one channel, you’re listening to a collaboration between Bark Haze & Traum, but you’re technically able to listen to each band’s “side” separately. And I just found out it’s the second part of a 2001-themed trilogy (the other 2 records functioning the same way as this one), but they never ended up releasing the third one. The first one came out, though, and it’s with Windy & Carl and Heavy Winged! So now I totally need to get that too.

Also I was able to include some more timely political speeches, this time Nixon’s Watergate resignation speech. I hope to hear something similar in the near future.

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.

I can’t believe how good Rorcal sounded with Sun Circle playing alongside it. Fucking crazy. Also scope the reading of King Arthur at the end, some choice excerpts from that on top of Drøne’s new album.

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?

Back from the dead (I was sick last week, sorry). Particularly fond of the Sunn O))) & Ulver collab mixed with steam locomotives and Tara Jane O’Neil’s creepy minimal drone underneath kids talking about God and shit. Also I fucking love that Screamin’ Jay Hawkins song.
