A Thick Mist

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.

I picked up the Churchill record about a month ago not knowing how appropriate his WWII-era speeches would be this past week or two.

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.

A Thick Mist (August 2, 2017)

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.
