Originally broadcast on November 30th 2016, I had to create a new recording because the stream went down at the radio station. It’s really bright stuff with intentional sounds and careful song placement. Just could not let it go to waste, echoing off into the depth of space forever. Here’s the tracklist for this half-hour of music:
Emahoy Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou – The Homeless Wanderer
Cobby & Porky – Black Pudding
Monster Rally – Full Sail
Gantez – Lazy Grey
Summer Salt – Manastra
Summer Salt – Summer Salt
Deerhoof – Risk Free
Brassstronaut – Hawk
D.D. Dumbo – Walrus
A Tribe Called Quest – Enough!!
Owiny Sigoma Band – Too Hot
Flaming Lips – Do You Realize?
Tame Impala – I’m a Man
Top Men – Hypersleep
Mother Mother – Monkey Tree
Blue Moon Marquee – Double Barrel Blues
Blue Moon Marquee – Gypsy Blues
David P. Smith – Walkin’ Talkin’ Blues
David P. Smith – Whiskey You Are Not My Brother
Father John Misty – Funtimes in Babylon
Father John Misty – This is Sally Hatchet
The Pesky Alders – St. James Infirmary
There have been some monumental happenings this past week, and The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour is attempting to cover all the bases. We begin with some words spoken by Leonard Cohen in one of his final public interviews, set to the final song on his final album. Then our minds and hearts are wrenched by the reworkings of German pianist, Lambert which continues behind a TED talk given by Bettina Warburg, a Blockchain Expert and Co-Founder of the laboratory Animal Ventures. She explains what the heck the Blockchain is, and how it is going to radically change global economy. Music, music, music for a while, capping off with a track from A Tribe Called Quest’s newly released album (after 17 years!) entitled “We Got it from Here”. Next is Russell Brand with an utterly jokeless and absolutely spot-on take on the American election results. Finalizing the program, set to J Dilla, is a little encouragement from me.
Leonard Cohen – String Reprise
Moderat – Bad Kingdom, Lambert Rework
Jacob Groening – Lambert’s Bad Kingdom
