Our 52nd episode begins with the sounds of the Women’s March on Washington last month, captured and mapped into ambient terrain by Baltimore artist Glassine. An arc follows; at its peak is Will Wiesenfeld’s Geotic project (his new album arrives soon on Ghostly International). That smile returns via Laurel Halo‘s collaboration with Japanese virtual pop star Hatsune Miku. Further down in the lounge is London duo Yussef Kamaal, whose LP Black Focus hit at the end of 2016 and has yet to let up. Later on, after a drift behind the pickup truck of Sister Grotto‘s new Midwife alias, and Weyes Blood‘s Nilsson cover, we end on a recording of Molly Drake, mother of Nick, unearthed a few years ago by Squirrel Thing Recordings (known for restoring the enigmatic Connie Converse material). Hat tip, Listen To This.

S&S-NewtownRadio-E46

 

Episode 46 opens with an hour arranged by Dev Sherlock. His third time navigating the clouds (see: E10 and E18), as always, a highly considered flight.

Hour number two forms freely, sequenced side by side with our friend Carla Bobrowicz at the studio turntables. Among her selections is Evening in Torpor, an early 1980’s student project that involved 10,000 Maniacs’ Natalie Merchant and Rob Buck (and one of the least digitally available records I’ve ever Googled).

Following Carla’s set, cuts from a few destinations as of late: a recent bandcamp release from Mike Clifford, the excellent Marisa Anderson and Jackie Lynn albums, and a forthcoming EP on True Panther by cellist Kelsey Lu—whose performance earlier this month at Holy Family Roman Catholic Church in Brooklyn was something special.
