African Head Charge  In A Trap (track 6) (Listen: )   Options Environmental Studies  On-U  Slow, reverberant, reminds me of ESG.   
Praxis  Cannibal (Heart Shape Of The Iron Blade) (track 7) (Listen: )   Options Metatron  Subharmonic  Slow, acidy, reggae dub hardcore acid. With Buckethead, Laswell, Brain.  ***  
Suicide  American Mean (track 5) (Listen: )   Options Ameriacn Supreme  Mute  Quirky-house, ambient, easy.

Freddie Fresh  Used To Be Bad (track 3) (Listen: )   Options Music For Swingers  Brooklyn Music  Just a lot of fun. Infectious and catchy, even a little hallucinatory. Thanks to Monica for playing this on Friday!   
 
 
Mic break between Sets 1 & 2. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 2: the old radio show portion of the evening. (Listen to this set: )
Dimension X  The Lost Race   Options from May 20, 1950  (no label)  Dimension X...the series that proved radio & science fiction could not only go together, but were ideal companions - better, in many ways, than the visual medium of TV, for sure. And Dimension X was the best - until its successor series, X-Minus One, came along in 1955.

Dimension X featured A+ production values, advanced special effects, and top level writing. Many of the episodes were adapted from stories in Astounding Science Fiction magazine, and authors included Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Kurt Vonnegut, and Clifford Simak.

Dimension X also featured "futuristic" music.

This episode, "The Lost Race", is about a race that decides to commit mass suicide when they build a thought machine that taps into their worst fears - they see they're mutating into humans.

Dimension X was on the air from April 8, 1950 to September 29, 1951, although with frequent absences and schedule changes. All episodes have survived.

Set 3 (Listen to this set: )
William Basinski  (no title) (track 2) (Listen: )   Options The Disintegration Loops II  Musex  Beautiful in its way, also about mental /emotional distance and memory, almost hurried in tempo - for him. It's also about the pain and suffering of 9/11.  ***  
David Sylvian  a fire in the forest (track 8) (Listen: )   Options blemish  Samadhi Sound  Soft, even dark avanty synth, slow, literate, looking for happiness "above the gray sky", fairly spare, sentimental & optimistic.

Set 4 (Listen to this set: )
Ambarchi/Muller/Samartzis  warmer (track 2) (Listen: )   Options strange love  For 4 Ears  Soft, resonant, dark, very quiet - more late night ruminations.   
Neu!  Im Gluck (track 4: faded up about -5:25, faded down about -1:30) (Listen: )   Options Neu  Astralwerks  Slow, quiet, sentimental. "Im Gluck" means "In Luck".   
Sunroof!  Silver Zero (track 9) (Listen: )   Options cloudz  VHF  Smoother, gentler & more melodic than some other tracks on this album, very softened Vocorder-y vocals.   
Melt Banana  Outro for cell-scape (track 10: faded up at -7:45, ends at -0:21) (Listen: )   Options "cell-scape"  A-Zap  Space-age & hymn-like, some sci-fi bleeps in background, not at all like the rest of the album.   
Sunroof!  Zero (track 4) (Listen: )   Options cloudz  VHF  Easy- tempo, bit golden drone, psych/ambient, peaceful.

Set 5: both late night and early morning. (Listen to this set: )
Surface Of Eceyon  Council Is Called (track 2)   Options Draggyn  Strange Attractors  Delicate, light, airy, ruminative, a perfect blend of late night and early morning.
