Artist Track Album Comments Special
 
Set 1 (Listen to this set: )
Biosphere  "Ancient Campfire" (track 3) (ended at -0:13) (Listen: )   Options Shenzhou  Ambient, quiet, deep, vaguely mysterious   
Erik Friedlander  "Shamir" (track 3) (Listen: )   Options Grains Of Paradise  Makes me feel like I'm taking a slow ride through history far away, except somehow I'm in lower Manhattan. Part of the Radical Jewish Culture series on the Tzadik label.   
 
 
Background music played during mic break:
Les Chakachas  "Love is like a Violin" (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Arriba!  A great, phat sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 2: from warped & uneasy to acid funk-hop. (Listen to this set: )
Simon Wickham-Smith  "Ave Regina Celorum (2000) part II" (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Extreme Bukake  Like a piece of Christian liturgical music that's more like occasionally distorted waves of dark, warped and swirly experimental acid.   
Coil  "Something" (track 1) (begun at -4:12) (Listen: )   Options Musick to Play In The Dark 2  Similar to the above piece, except we hear the word "something" repeated over an acidy background.   
Volcano The Bear  "Where Are The Bounds" (Side 1, track 1) (Listen: )   Options Yak Folks Y'Are  Experimental acid robo-runk, with a nod to Devo and Pere Ubu.   
The Fall  "Dr. Buck's Letter" (CD #1, track 1) (Listen: )   Options The Wire Tapper 6 (various artists)  This song will be on The Fall's upcoming album, The Unutterable.

Set 3: the often slow & sentimental psych set. (Listen to this set: )
Cul de Sac  "Flying Music From Faust" (track 8) (begun at -4:50, ended at -0:08) (Listen: )   Options Immortality Lessons  Kind of a high, thin sound, easy and wistful.   
Landing  "First Of Snow" (track 3) (Listen: )   Options Seasons  Warm, shimmering, delicate.   
Surface Of Eceon  "The Open Sea" (track 1) (begun at -6:34) (Listen: )   Options Surface Of Eceon  Quiet start, builds to warm, full-sounding psych with a swirly edge.   
Remora  "Hangin' Tough" (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Teen Feeding Frenzy (comp.)  Reverberant, drugged-out and dreamy. Somewhat warped, actually. It's also a cover of The New Kids On The Block.   
Spacemen 3  "Sometimes" (track 9) (ended at -0:09) (Listen: )   Options Recurring  Ephemeral, floating, highly sentimental. It's like a melancholic ballad for a lonely western.  ***  
Sciflyer  "set the controls for the heart of the sun" (track 6) (Listen: )   Options Sciflyer  On the slow side of psych rock, bit swirly, with an edge.

Set 4: the old radio show portion of the evening.
Radio City Playhouse  "Strange Identity" (Listen: )   Options (originally broadcast on December 27, 1948)  A love story, from this side of the grave and beyond. The crucial decisions about their existance take place in apartment 2B - get it?
