Options Brian Turner: Playlist from August 3, 2010 Options

Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly-played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.

Bill Orcutt   Live in the WFMU 4th Floor Bathroom   Options Engineered by David Mambach    During the 1990's, Miami's Harry Pussy provided among the most confrontational and challenging recordings and live sets to a post-hardcore generation, and Bill Orcutt's blasted guitar playing defied easy categorization. Such is the case upon his return last year with a solo LP A New Way to Pay Old Debts, whereupon he takes an old Kay acoustic guitar rigged with a found pickup and tears out some unbelievably gutted, aggressive yet defined picking/shredding compositions to make even even seasoned guitar composition connoisseurs turn their heads for the mere reason that you've rarely heard the instrument approached this way. Comparisons to the woolier moments of Cecil Taylor, fractured player-piano- roll sounds of Conlon Nancarrow all enter a decidedly unguitar-like realm of performance, with gutbucket resonations and almost microtonal approach to strings in the spirit of pure freedom and anarchy.

Thank you, Bad Ronald. But is there a way to "download" download the set? Like, so I can burn it to a CD or release the recording under my own name or turn myself into the FBI? No flishy-flashy streaming kind, but the good kind of download?

The set will be downloadable in a few days, keep an eye out on freemusicarchive.org
