Hello! Happy Monday!
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:04pm Linda Lee:

fantastic! from AI to the thoroughly human! hi Dan!
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:05pm TDK60:

I've heard that first piece before! Where?
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:05pm common:

Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:06pm TDK60:

Linda, you're "here." If it's ethical to even do so [?] we can continue our talk about albums/tapes.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:07pm Tom Miller:

Stepanida! This style is called toyuk, a typical Sakha (Yakut) genre full of glissandi and glottal shakes.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:08pm Tom Miller:

She told me "I don't know why I do it, but at all my concerts I loosen my hair. It's a tradition that a woman frees her hair at the most important moments of life: birth and so on. I think it's a way of connecting with the upper worlds."
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:09pm Dan Bodah:

Hello all! @Tom, thanks for the info -- when did you meet Stepanida?
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:10pm TDK60:

LL: You'd asked about older, shorter pop albums and EPs?
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:10pm Linda Lee:

yes i did. i'm not up on the latest.
  Mon. 2/12/18 7:10pm misterrrCaz:

"All Seeing Hand" indeed.
great tune !
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:10pm Dan Bodah:

@TDK60, I believe it came out on a comp from Touch or some such label at some point? Also there's a video that Bart Plantenga (Wreck This Mess) put up.

joiku its another way to spell yoik
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:13pm Linda Lee:

Huun Huuur Tu!! just amazing..
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:13pm Tom Miller:

A couple of times. I first heard her in 1992, later I interviewed her in her house in Yakutsk in 1999 for my dissertation. Also used her music in a 2008
installation in Germany.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:14pm Linda Lee:

interesting .. ingestion of southeast asian herb kratom makes those throat-tones really pop.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:15pm TDK60:

Thanks DJ Dan.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:15pm Tom Miller:

Also used her singing for a piece I did for NPR on Sakha rock.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:16pm Tom Miller:

Dan, thanks for your help yesterday at the Bad Princess book launch! You look good in a crown.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:19pm TDK60:

Linda, You'd asked about shorter albums and EPs. Mini-LPs were around in the New Wave era with usually 5, 6, 7 tunes on a 10" or 12" disc. EPs were usually 7" (like 45s) with 3 or 4 maybe 5 songs. Sound right?
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:19pm βrian:

I don't know this piece by the Necks. Recent?
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:21pm TDK60:

If anyone missed Rob W.'s recent show, hear it in the archives -- great Korean music to coincide with the Olympics.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:27pm Dan Bodah:

@Brian, that's the Necks' first record -- Sex.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:29pm Linda Lee:

@TDK60 ~ hmm. i''m not recalling the 7" or 10" mutli-song disc too well. 12" yes. that's what I was calling an EP.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:30pm TDK60:

LL: I think 12" isn't correct for an EP but I may be wrong.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:31pm Linda Lee:

just going by my memory here .. admittedly not always on point :-D
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:31pm Linda Lee:

now i guess vinyl producers are doing whatever they darn well please with the medium :-)
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:32pm Dan Bodah:

@LL, yeah, I'd say an EP is any release with a few songs (usually around 5) -- not enough to be a full record (in the 35-45 min range minimally) but longer than a single w/B-side track. I'd use the term EP for that in any format (vinyl of any size, CD, cassette etc).
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:32pm βrian:

@Dan B: Thanks. I didn't realize they went that far back. Just saw them last spring in Chicago. Really excellent.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:32pm Dan Bodah:

@Brian, yeah -- that record was out in 1989
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:33pm Linda Lee:

thanks, Dan. that's how i used the term too. didn't seem to me that the size mattered .. for once :-D
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:33pm βrian:

Their seminal "release," as it were.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:34pm Dan Bodah:

BTW, drummer on this Sainkho Namtchylak is Sunny Murray (RIP)
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:35pm Linda Lee:

incredible recording.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:37pm TDK60:

LL & DB: See, I didn't know that. Does this mean a mini-LP 12" is the same as a 12" EP? 45-sized 4-song EPs were common in '60s UK pop, not so much here it seemed. 7" EPs got big again in the punk/new wave era, here too.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:39pm Tom Miller:

Still waiting for the cassingles revival though.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:40pm Linda Lee:

@TDK60 ~ yes i think we're talking about the same thing.. mini LP = EP. do remember the multi-song 45s here too, in the 50s & 60s. generally 2 tracks per side ..
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:41pm Linda Lee:

@Tom Miller ~ actually still have a bunch of those. funny little waste of materials. :-)
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:41pm TDK60:

Now I've been set aright and maybe can sleep a full night again. MINI LPS ARE EPS!
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:42pm Linda Lee:

glad i had my memory confirmed too :-D
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:42pm melinda:

This is nice.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:43pm Linda Lee:

it is. nice tone palette
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:43pm TDK60:

I do still have @ 700 space-taking plastic cassettes (60 or 90 m.). But the cassingle always annoyed me.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:46pm βrian:

Boom! That must've been something.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:46pm Tom Miller:

Boxes of cassettes by the thousands here. Occasionally I grab a handful of them and go on a bulk digitizing jag.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:47pm Linda Lee:

cassingles: utterly unstable medium offering minimal real product .. as if cassettes weren't bad enough trash wise! :-)
Shopping bags upon bags upon bags of cassettes await me at a house i've just sold .. can't imagine what to do with them, as there's nowhere to bring them to. are they worth trucking into storage? are they potential hipster-bait?
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:48pm TDK60:

Then, there's the Double Album. // Great music tonight.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:48pm Linda Lee:

ho! the double album! or the extra-special Triple gatefold!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/12/18 7:50pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Linda Lee - I wonder if Craigslist or Ebay can help find a home for them?
Maybe Pizza Box Guy knows a collector.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:51pm TDK60:

I betcha there are mix tape fanatics needing tapes to tape over.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:52pm Linda Lee:

@ Ken From Hyde Park ~ here in the states sales prices barely justify shipping. so much effort to list em all too. i think i'd rather just pull my own eyes out :-D
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:53pm Linda Lee:

the kids do love them in the UK. crazy for cassettes. but talk about shipping! :-)
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:54pm TDK60:

I once found a record store (2008) had thrown thousands of tapes into their dumpster. I took as many as my pack could hold, to tape over.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:55pm Linda Lee:

wow .. what were you putting on them in 08?
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:55pm βrian:

I'd love to hear these guys do the Mah Nà Mah Nà song.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:56pm TDK60:

Ha! Well, maybe Six Organs of Admittance, Miles, Stereolab, Fahey, the Searchers.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:56pm Linda Lee:

question i have is, now that we have digital, what advantages do cassettes really have utiility-wise? they were great when there was nothing else to tape on .. i was part of a network that sent mixtapes all over the world .. but!
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:58pm Linda Lee:

wow .. love the Mikuskovics.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:59pm melinda:

Me too!
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:59pm Richard S:

Cassettes don't change format. (WAV, MIDI, MP3, OGG, whatever...)
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 7:59pm Kamp Climax:

I can understand the cassette revival. We all recorded on Tascam 4 tracks, so it's a medium we created on, so the love for that medium is understandable. But can somebody please, I'm begging, explain to me the VHS revival, because that one completely goes over my head. I could even understand the old reels of film, but VHS?
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:00pm TDK60:

Tapes are silly. Tapes are space wasting. They should also from now on only be made of veggie fibers and sold by artisanal vendors. There should be a large warehouse archive of all tapes.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:00pm βrian:

To say nothing of 8-track.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:00pm Linda Lee:

there's a VHS revival? :-D
is it really just a matter of tangible materials?
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:01pm TDK60:

Thanks Dan.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 10:08pm Dan Bodah:

Re the conversation about tapes: there is a cardboard box in the WFMU dining room where people leave stuff, mostly old recordings, for others to take. Tonight it contained a pile of 8-tracks (I remember listening to those as a kid!) - and... an unopened jar of Nutella.
