Love "Ohm" by YLT! That tune was a hit around these parts, and that's sayin' something!

...you bring them great ambient electronic beats (if you'll pardon my ElectroGenre illiteracy)

Hi, all!

Rev, what festival did you partake of?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 9:56am Liz Berg:

Yes Rev, do tell about the fest!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/6/14 9:58am Rev. Turnip Druid:

sonic circuits fest., outside DC. Had a good dose of NYC noisemakers mixing with the local heroes. Great stuff.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/6/14 9:58am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Haven't seen GenKen Montgomery since late '80s... Brilliant.
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:00am Cecile:

that sounds awesome
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:03am Cecile:

I think someone could do an amazing doctoral thesis about how Contemporary Christian music (mainstream and cult-like) has influenced music (mainstream and cult-like) in the twenty-teens.
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:05am Cecile:

I have three potential final papers to write in History of Graphic Design:

1) Mucha vs. John Dyer Baizley
2) Alvin Lustig vs Elaine Lustig Cohen
3) 20s surrealism vs Hipgnosis album covers.

I was kind of set on the Baizley one, but now I'm not sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 10:05am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...wull - most of the Darkest Metalheads were Catholic School victims : ) ...
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:06am Cecile:

I used to be afraid of Slayer until I learned 1/2 of the band were practicing Catholics.
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:07am Cecile:

no, it's just all this music out there that sounds like it should be sung in a mega church with 8000 other people, mainstream and otherwise.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/6/14 10:07am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Cecile: no.3 sounds like a winner.
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:08am Cecile:

I kind of think so now. I kind of don't want to give it to someone who's not going to appreciate it.
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:09am Cecile:

except, I'm not that huge a fan of 20s surrealism. I am a huge fan of Hipgnosis.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/6/14 10:11am Sem Chumbo:

@Cecile: are you thinking re: #1, that Mucha's kinda Johnny One Note and just not that *interesting*?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 10:12am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...one defintion of Rock'n'Roll might be Gospel w/ Dirty lyrics...
- Hipgnosis seems very Magritte to me ; has been said that Horror just rips Surrealism out of context too - to put it uncharitably...
- have mused that: Psych is Surrealism + R&B
- Mod is Futurism + R&B
- Punk is DAdA...+ R&B...
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:12am Cecile:

No, I think he's fascinating and I like his sense of beauty, even though it's pretty stylized. And he was a definite influence on Baizeley (dude who plays in baroness and does art for them, Metallica and a ton of other people)_
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:13am Cecile:

"Vs" means compare/contrast. Whoops, it does sounds like a battle royale. Didn't mean to do that.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/6/14 10:14am Sem Chumbo:

I just had a look at some work by John Dyer Baizley, and he is an apt Mucha pupil, alright, but that death and darkness stuff is fairly worked over, too. ...
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:14am Cecile:

oh, rev, do you still have that sheet of Baby Teeth lettering?
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:16am Cecile:

he also has elements of Pushead in there, as well. I like his stuff because while Art Noveau hinted at decadence, Baizley is the flip side: The worms are crawling over everything.
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:17am still b/p:

I see a Mucha female figure walking the ring and holding aloft the perfect card displaying the number of each round of the fight.
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:18am Cecile:

Awesome, sbp.

Wow. Who knew there were T'Pau covers out there? Good find!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 10:20am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- so yeah: I think you could make a pretty good Thesis out of Pop/Rawk Movements being like earlier European Art Movements alloyed to Black American Music generally/broadly...
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:20am Cecile:

Yeah, Greil Marcus kind of did that in Lipstick Traces.
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:21am Cecile:

I'm just supposed to contast/compare two artists or movements over FOUR pages. I know I'm not going to go into any detail.

Morning, Liz & everybody!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/6/14 10:29am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Cecile: I've got the babyteeth Chartpak™ sheets somewhere in a box, I'm sure. Plus endless sheets of dry-transfer zippotone & some very un-fashionable & badly dated type (copperplate, etc). A dead art, sadly.
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:30am Cecile:

I have to do a group project on Push Pin, etc. so I thought if you had them at your fingertips (don't go digging) you could scan 'em for me and I could use it in my PowerPoint.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 10:32am Liz Berg:

Anyone else catch the Vaselines playlists in the NYT?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 10:32am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...oh...a narrow focus can mean actually being able to research & learn something I guess : p
- & Thx for the Marcus tip: he's so basic - embarrassing to say I haven't read 'im...
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 10:33am Cecile:

It's kind of a convoluted book. It's not the easiest read, but he does link several art movements together to explain how the Sex Pistols happened.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 10:37am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- wull - all the post-National Service Brits went to ArtSchool - & the rest is history
...nice to see Teardrop Explodes on their list !
- Everyone was playing Scottish music during the referendum ; very impressive once it's separated out from the Brits for people like me...

wow, WH, that sounds awesome. I think I'm going to hit the library pretty hard, maybe our library has them too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 11:03am Webhamster Henry:

They are ad free, full of art , "new journalism", interviews and each issue is loosely "themed"!

This piece is the sort of music that'd bore me if it were in English and played in any other setting. Somehow the combination of its being in French and the setting Ms. Berg gives it makes it at least tolerable, maybe even pleasant. That says something about the skill of the DJ: the ability not only to give us great entertainment, but sometimes to get a portion of the audience over what would otherwise be low spots.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 11:16am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- word.
  Mon. 10/6/14 11:17am Robert:

Looks like a left-handed compliment, doesn't it? But think about it. Nobody could possibly have someone else happen to pick out music that's your favorite pieces all the time, given the enormous variety in musical tastes. Someone who can keep us listening over the long run -- that's a skill we don't often recognize, but it's there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 11:18am Webhamster Henry:

WFMU is little more than an artful series of segues. That's actually a spectacular and more or less unmatched artistic achievement.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 11:22am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- quite.
  Mon. 10/6/14 11:25am Robert:

It's also great how Mondays have worked out. I don't know whether to credit Mr. Freedman, Mr. Turner, or the serendipity of when people were available, but the peppiness of Ms. Berg's program, which seems NEEDED on a Mon. morn, followed by the laid-back programming of Ms. Trudel, just fits wonderfully.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 11:28am Liz Berg:

Though I've been on some modestly satisfying youtube excursions in music discovery, none of those journeys can hold a candle to the wonderfully unexpected nature of music discovery when guided by an actual human. I guess that's all why we're gathered here!
Avatar Mon. 10/6/14 11:29am mdffrnt:

You might call it a "rhythm long journey" or some such.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/6/14 11:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@ Cec: (too) many things come to mind: illustrators like Virgil Finlay, tattoo artists, the old-time San Francisco posters...

- I think 'Brian in UK' says it well:
...'We are normal and we want our freeform, yes FMU is the home of radio that has grown up. A sophisicated system that hides behinds a seemimgly juvenile facade'....

  Mon. 10/6/14 11:34am Robert:

Ms. Berg, once your friends have an idea of your music tastes, stuff just seems to flow to you. It's like being a reporter, where once you get enough of an audience, people start funneling their stories to you.

glad i had my expresso ;)
  Mon. 10/6/14 11:38am Robert:

This year a tip from a comment thread turned me on to Poopy Lungstuffing; a play by Mr. Freedman turned me on to Neil Cicierega's mashups, even though I'd been attempted to be made aware of Mr. Cicierega years earlier by Jesse Walker's reporting; and now a Facebook cx that I maintain as a favor for an organiz'n turned me on to Steve 'n' Seagulls.
