>> DOWNLOAD SESSION 12
Last week was folksy overtones - this week it's electronic. Sure, there may be an occasional barely recognisable guitar chord, but this show is essentially digital maelstrom. I tucked in a little sweet girlie thing at the end that does have some guitar and drums. I just felt it needed it at the end. More for myself than my listeners, cos I'm a selfish bitch at heart.
I want to acknowledge the phenomenon of Creative Commons and free audio here. Not that there is anything wrong with paying for music. Oh no! But there is a new online culture where artists make their music available for download. So here's a plug for the four artists whose free music I am playing in this session:
Kraus: one of his albums was described in The Listener as "somewhere between a pop Moog record and the harshest no wave." Kraus has the best website I have seen for a long time. Highlight: his interviews with himself. Oh, and his music. I think he's pretty fucking fantastic.
Dsic: Ex-pat New Zealander living in Bristol, UK.
Crude: Matt Middleton has been making music in Dunedin since 1994.
Disasteradio: Luke is Rowell is a Wellington artist who is influenced by Commodore 64 games. You can tell this just by looking at his website.
