SESSION 33: At Home With Rose

Synth-tastic Pleasures!


Oh my god, I've had fun this week, dredging up 80s treasures and some of the latest synth-inspired tunes. I've been quite giggly with the fun of it all!

Been watching lots of DVDs including If.... which was fantastically good. Working on some fun design stuff at the office and hoping to have our website up in the next few weeks.

SESSION 32: At Home With Rose

Psych folk and other mysteries (co-starring Michael McD)


Bit of a change of routine for the show this week - I've asked my friend Michael along to co-host the show. I gave him the genre: psych folk (or just psych) and we get an hour each. We weren't allowed to divulge our list and if there were any double-ups, well so be it. But there weren't. Looking forward to sharing the show. Might be the start of some other collaborations for the show.

I realised I've ended up playing a few of the artists I've been playing lately anyways. Boring of me, but hey, I've been enjoying my pysch-folk shit lately. Next week, however, will be quite different when I play all synth tracks!

Just a note about one of the labels from tonight's show: Music Your Mind Will Love You (MYMWLY) - Autumn Galaxy is the artist I am playing who is on MYMWLY.

MYMWLY was an Australian independent label run by Mike Donnelly (of Terracid [plays on tonight's show], 6majik9, Soarwhole, Brothers of the Occult Sisterhood, etc.). All releases were recorded on CDRs and the copies are very limited. The label just closed shop at the beginning of this year, but I think there may still be some back catalogue stuff available via the MYMWLY blog.

However, Mike has just started another label, Pacific Soma. Apparently the rebranded label will be releasing both the old format CD-Rs as well as CDs and LPs. I'll be watching closely!

Not much to say about my week except that my sore shoulder and neck are getting better after a trip to my acupuncturist and my osteopath and a day at home watching movies. An expensive week.

And so to the playlist:

My hour:
Hush Arbors, 'The Werewolf Om', Hush Arbors, Ecstatic Peace! (4:24)
Autumn Galaxy, 'The Book of Rituals', Harappa, Musicyourmindwillloveyou. (5:53)
Charalambides, 'Magnolia', Unknown Spin, Kranky. (9:43)
Christina Carter, 'Moving, Intercepted', Electrice, Kranky. (8:23)
Flying Saucer Attack, 'Popul Vuh 1', Flying Saucer Attack, AKA Rural Psychedelia, VHF Records. (10:19)
Fursaxa, 'Lunaria Enters the Blue Lodge', Alone in the Dark Wood, Eclipse Records.(3:25)
Jackie-O-Motherfucker, 'Good Morning Kaptain', Flags of the Sacred Harp, ATP Recordings. (5:53)
No-Neck Blues Band, 'A Spiritual Knifewound', The Collective Imaginings of Quantarenius, Cook, & Co, Sound@One. (2:43)
Terracid, 'In Glowing Rings in Rows', The Palace Carries The Eggtooth As Its Crown, Foxglove. (4:06)

SESSION 31: At Home With Rose

Cold is a soft thing: pretty drones from Lau Nau to Tangerine Dream.


It's all sweetness and light tonight. Well, with some dark bits of course, because with me there will always be a few dark moments. Just to set off the lighter moments, of course.

Note two tracks by Russian group Stuk Bambuka V 11 Chasov (rus. “Bamboo knocks at 11 o’clock”), from the album “Legkoe Delo Holod” (rus. “Cold is a soft thing”) which came out in 1991. The most information I could find out about them was here. My Russian friend introduced me to them and I must say, they are pretty fantastic. All images in the posting are Stuk Bambuka V 11 Chasov's album artwork.

So what's been happening lately? Well, Dave has been up at the Adam Art Gallery installing his part of the Wall Works show which is the tenth anniversary of the gallery. He's been having fun, and I haven't seen much of him in the last few nights because he's been gadding about, including tonight. Where's my cup of tea! Oh fuck, I had to get it myself. What a bore.

Anyway, the show is open already, as the installations happen. Everything will be finished by the end of the week and then there's going to be a fun party to celebrate the anniversary. Should be lots of fun. There'll be music too - Bek Coogan and Torben Tilly (normally performing as Full Fucking Moon). All the better. Apparently VBC, the student radio station, are broadcasting the event.

Other than that, we have not been up to much. I've been suffering from a sore shoulder and neck, so early nights have been a must. Groan groan. God, I'm getting old! My body is starting to crap out. It's all very depressing.

Okay - enough whingeing! Here's the playlist for this week's show:

SESSION 29: At Home With Rose

Finnish Music and Other Things I Found on My Way to Somewhere Else


For starters, I have changed my show to Wednesday nights to work around my Film Society commitments. I haven't been able to get to a meeting now for months and it seems pointless being on the committee if I can't get to meetings. So Wednesday nights now I'll be in my room with my laptop and headphones loading the music up onto the interweb.

I've been getting into a bit of Finnish music lately. I'm sure there is more than just the Fonal label, but that is what I have discovered so far. I'm looking forward to hearing more.

Otherwise, this week is pretty drone-y and lofi. My faves this week are Seht's "Requiem to John Fahey" and Delia Derbyshire's
"Celestial Cantible". She's the one who brought us the Doctor Who theme. She really did made amazing music.
