  • Tulipomania on ResonanceFM’s Adventures In Music And Sound

    Dave Wesley, June 25th 2017

    A melange of tracks taken from The Wire Magazine’s prolific Wire Tapper series on the latest installment of ResonanceFM’s Adventures In Music And Sound radio programme.  Tulipomania at about 1 hour and 12 minutes.  Very cool radio program.  Very cool classic track from Tulipomania.   Viva la musical revolution.  Much needed.  Dig deeper. With restless demeanor […]

  • Release – Steve Earle & The Dukes – So You Wannabe an Outlaw

    Wesley Mayhem, June 22nd 2017

    This album is the real deal.  Instant classic. Growing up in Etter, Minnesota, in the 70s, in the middle of nowhere…  in a house in the middle of a field (which was perfect for UFO landings)…  with a father that cranked outlaw country music on a kick ass quadraphonic hi-fi… even for a rocker like me, […]

  • Release – Different Circles 005 – Various Artists: Weightless Volume 2

    Dave Wesley, June 21st 2017

    This experimental grimy release is like gentle rain to my ears after the dull programmed sonic assaults of off-Sonar events (Barcelona) and Primavera Sound (Porto) in these last weeks.  I promise myself to be more careful about how I spend my sonic time from now on!  Tick tock. Hear my post-festival sonic salvation at Hardwax: […]

  • Repost – Disinformation – The Rendlesham Forest UFO and A Flock Of Seagulls

    Dom Fox, June 10th 2017

    This tickles my fancy.   Check out this post on Disinformation.  Only an advanced extraterrestrial civilization could have inspired that hair and that 15 year-old guitar player…  fused with a legendary rock and roll sibling feud. Enjoy. Dom Fox – Fargo, ND

    Adas Butler, June 6th 2017

    The Birds by Poppy Ackroyd Poppy Ackroyd: ““The songs were recorded just outside of Brighton at Retreat Studios, close to the sea on the edge of the village, surrounded by hills, fields and wildlife. As if by magic, it began to rain just before I began to record the track ‘Rain’, and ended shortly after […]

  • Repost – Steve Kilbey Talks New Kilbey Kennedy Album Glow and Fade, The Church and More

    Wesley Mayhem,

    This is a cool interview with Steve Kilbey on the Smells Like Infinite Sadness blog.   If you know me, you know that I’m a major fan of The Church.  I hadn’t heard of Steve’s side project Kilbey Kennedy.   When I searched Spotify, I discovered a ton of Kilbey Kennedy music, which I’ve quickly playlisted […]

  • Mix – Samo DJ – Cav Empt Mixtape

    Dave Wesley, June 3rd 2017

    This digitized mixtape is simultaneously lo-fi and minty fresh.  I’ve got to find the Ron Morelli side now…  and damnit…  I have stuff to do! From SoundCloud post: “Samo´s side from the Ron Morelli / Samo DJ split mixtape for their Tokyo tour dates in collaboration with Cav Empt. Artwork by Sk8ightTing.”
