R.E.M., REO, Indigo, Chicago: Monthy Episode #2

Droogs,

The second monthly episode of my R.E.M., REO, Indigo, Chicago program airs tonight (2am-5am Stateside) on WGXC 90.7-FM / Wave Farm Radio. This month, hour-long tributes to both Sunny Murray and Z'ev, a half-hour curated by Miami Beach's Holly Hunt, a new episode of I Can Help (during which Prurient's interminable Rainbow Mirror is reduced to a neat and tidy thirty seconds), and brand-new music from Aaron Dilloway, Merkwürdig Riechnerv, and To Live and Shave in H.H. Plus a couple of German things (Borsig Werke, Gerhard Rühm) tossed in for good luck. Stream, wait for a rebroadcast, or remain ignorant - your choice!

 Yours,

TS

New Release Alert from Karl Schmidt Verlag!

Friends,

Apologies for being a bit lazy over at Karl Schmidt Verlag - I‘ve only been able to summon the strength to release THIRTY-NINE new and archival albums. Sloth, cruel sloth. Many of those in the latter category were thought lost in the wake of the 2015 hard drive crash which nearly destroyed KSV. Some belong to our expanding parallel series, in which long-deleted early releases are supplanted by works from emerging outsider artists. Modesty demands the truth: those of recent vintage are rather extraordinary. Or, if you prefer, “good,” especially compared to normal vanilla good. There are seven or so more to post (including a seven-disc Peach of Immortality compilation); I’ll be offering discount bulk packages for enthusiasts who want to go deep. Check back on Wednesday for info.

Yours,

Tom
