Since the start of the year, episodes of Up In The Clouds—our freeform show on Brooklyn-based internet station Newtown Radio—have been steadily, while somewhat stealthily, populating this archive.

Last night, Mister Lies and Foxes in Fiction (also shoutout Brian Vu and Cuddle Formation) came by the studio for what can be considered an Orchid Tapes takeover. Nick provided a guest mix compiling some of the music that inspired his album Shadow (out October 28th). Warren, who arrived from the airport just in time to plug in for the second hour, performed a set of “deeper, weirder cuts” as well as a new song finished earlier that day.

Setlist:
[Hour 1, Mister Lies Mix]
Knower – Trust The Light
Scott Walker – It’s Raining Today
Steve Hauschildt – Uncanny Valley
The Blue Nile – Seven AM
Judee Sill – The Kiss (Live)
Prefab Sprout – Nightingales
Spencer Cole – Oh My Dear, Alright, You’re Right
Arthur Russell – You And Me Both
Thomas – So Many Dreams About You
The Roches – Hammond Song
Oneohtrix Point Never – Russian Mind
K Leimer – Two Voices
David Sylvian – Silver Moon Over Sleeping Steeples
Seal – Violet
[Hour 2]
58:00-1:19:00 – Interlude ~ Yoshimura/Eno/HEDIA (as Warren sets up)
Foxes in Fiction Live

Thanks all. Next show is Tuesday, October 28th.

Dreams of Scotland

 

A motorik frolick ticks with the reed-winded breaths of this joyous, light-headed land. The clocktower, the castle. The steamers and pipes. They take much of it, the air. Though just enough remains for the delirious, depleted to dash, in a laugh, down a narrow mountain pass, or perhaps, have a gas, dodging gaff’s upon the bonnie banks.

A gaggle of teenagers twist to the ticks, above the bridge, with no certainty nor urgency, levitating slightly. Happiness is happiness in monotony. The clocktower, winding up the depleted and playing them out, over and over. Its hands reaching, for not much more than a minute before recoiling back where they first reached. The youths respond routinely with their gasping grins, like clockwork, as does the sky, the hour’s perpetual gold.
