Options Brian Turner: Playlist from May 1, 2018 Options

Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly-played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.

Heron Oblivion, 75 Dollar Bill and Wooden Shjips are some of my favorite bands I learned about at WFMU.

Did you all hear Espers is doing some shows?

Meetings during Heron Oblivion. I mean really, people.

I've been watching the hell out of that Heron Oblivion set via the FMU roku app/channel. Infinitely excellent.

I played "Skin Coat" for my daughter when she was 3. She said it was "very fine" and doubled down saying she wanted to go to the concert at North Six.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/18 3:35pm Itzall Ablurr:

Wild Neil l Peace All, there is, indeed. And it's free. Lots of good stuff in there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/18 3:36pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

oh HELL YES, W.Neil. A great many Monty Hall sets are there, as well as marathon propaganda short films. If only it offered a live audio stream, I could easily play it at home base on the proper stereo (hint, techoids)
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 3:36pm Brian Turner:

Kids love Jonathan Richman and Khanate
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/18 3:37pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I'm sure there's other ways to stream it thusly (direct to home stereo without using mobile app), but I'm old and thinking hurts.

Love this track i wish I could share it with my loved ones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/18 3:57pm The Oscar:

Been slammed with work, but I just want to chime in with a "hell yes" for Ono. Caught them last fall at Hasslefest in Boston without having heard of them before. Really really cool band, and they seemed like really warm people.
  Tue. 5/1/18 3:59pm Smurph:

I think the band name you wanted might be Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound.
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:00pm Brian Turner:

YES. DOI. I'm sorry.

this person kinda sounds like bingo gazingo?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/18 4:19pm ♪ke:

@RTD, when I want to stream something from a laptop or phone to my home stereo, I just use a dirtball-cheap adapter, quarter-inch plug on one end, regular RCA on the other end. (I need to get a longer one though, so I can listen from my couch while still fumbling with said device.)
