No show tonight, as I was returning from Ithaca and a visit to Cornell. More on that in later posts…
I finally post archives from shows over the last month and a half…enjoy!
For a number of reasons, I featured a few tracks from Rachel’s tonight, spanning the entirety of their oeuvre. Also, a couple tracks from Do Make Say Think who are playing at the Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge on Tuesday night. And, amiina is playing at the MFA on Saturday night, although tickets are sadly […]
A small sampling of rather long tracks tonight by some of my favorite groups and musicians. I was especially happy to play a long live track from A Silver Mt. Zion show, available (along with a number of other live shows) at archive.org . it’s natural to be afraid by Explosions in the Sky. all […]
Great new work from Stars of the Lid (warning: immediate audio) tonight on a new 2CD set that I’ve barely had time to listen to. (More info about the new album.) Also some hyper guitars and vocals from Marnie Stern, and Yo La Tengo + children’s choir singing the Sun Ra classic “Nuclear War”. spectral […]

New season at WMBR means a new time for the show. sigtronica will now be on Monday nights from 10-11PM EST starting tonight. What’s nice about this later slot is that I’m now free to play pieces that might, ahem, use foul language. Thank you, FCC! For those listening via podcast, there really isn’t any […]
New music from Explosions in the Sky tonight. Unfortunately I’m going to miss seeing them play, as the show is already sold out! Bollocks. Also! New from Jesu, Eluvium, and some really interesting improvisation from Mike Pride. A good friend of mine suggested that I listen to Tycho, but in the record library I instead […]
No show tonight…enjoy the day listening to the sounds of múm, sigur rós, the rachel’s, or others. I’ll be back next week at the same time.
