I'm liking the Yorshiro

Just discovered Yorishiro, I have no clue what his/her/its deal is except its on a great Cali label.

I see that you have, indeed, played Chris Smither at some point.
  Mon. 6/6/16 4:05am tuner fish:

I would like to put in a request for some nice music to dream to as I sleep. That cog-dis sounded great. I laugh at the word vaporwave, but yeah, some of that stuff is nicely done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 4:09am Scraps deSelby:

rateyourmusic says:

"Vaporwave is a primarily sample-based genre characterized by heavily synthesized and processed manipulation of corporate mood and background music (infomercials, menu screens, instructional videos, office lobbies, hotel reception areas, shopping malls, etc.), though it can include a multitude of genres (most commonly Pop, Contemporary R&B, Synth Funk, Smooth Jazz & Exotica). Vaporwave often consists of brief sketches altered by slowing down, looping, glitching, pitch-bending, and/or echoing a particular sound or sample in a compressed state, usually under reverberation."

Good morning, Jeff, and hello to the Avanti gathered here in the Get-Ho.
  Mon. 6/6/16 4:13am ice in Bklyn:

So yeh me and my got into a fight over that Garcia song. I'm going home now
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 4:13am Scraps deSelby:

It sounds intriguing. On the other hand, the only thing I heard much of is Saint Pepsi, which is awful, even worse than you would think judging from their stoopid name.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 4:14am Jeff Conklin:

@Ice: Need some details on that...
  Mon. 6/6/16 4:15am ice in Bklyn:

Well, it was New Year's Eve 2015
  Mon. 6/6/16 4:16am SeanG:

Greetings from San Francisco!
  Mon. 6/6/16 4:16am ice in Bklyn:

She wanted Aretha, I wanted Garcia.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 4:19am Jeff Conklin:

Hey, Sean, thanks for checking in.

@Ice: You were arguing over what to play at the countdown? Admittedly, that Garcia tune is a tough one for party atmospheres, not like I know what parties are like but i can imagine
  Mon. 6/6/16 4:20am ice in Bklyn:

No no, this was at like 3am
  Mon. 6/6/16 4:21am ice in Bklyn:

  Mon. 6/6/16 4:43am franny:

Every single time I tune in the first song I hear is face punch good.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 4:43am Jeff Conklin:

Very cool, Ajay. I think he's playing near me soon at some venue I never heard of with other bands I've never heard of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 4:44am pacific standard simon:

Everybody does "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" -- it's probably the most covered song on the album. Wading through so many versions was really hard. I liked the castanets in Bryan Ferry's version.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 4:47am Jeff Conklin:

@Franny: Thanks!

It's my hope that you go back and listen to the show in full as its intended ;)

In the summer an old man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of pitchers of sangria.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 5:09am Guido from Cologne:

Ooooh I love this davy Graham recording!
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 5:09am pierre:

Bonjour Jeff, long time no hear
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 5:10am pacific standard simon:

Now you can burn your John Mayall records.
  Mon. 6/6/16 5:12am Violet in Cali:

Where's the sangria?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 5:15am pacific standard simon:

Working on it -- bought the pitcher and the raspberries.
  Mon. 6/6/16 5:16am Violet in Cali:

never had it with raspberries that sounds marvelous
  Mon. 6/6/16 5:21am ponychamp666:

loving the tunes from Newcastle AU man; wish we had decent local stations here!
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 5:25am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, pony. With the internet, any station can be your local!
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 5:25am Bentangle:

What a marvelous show this has been.
  Mon. 6/6/16 5:28am Violet in Cali:

I'm getting all teary eyed from this set
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 5:28am Jeff Conklin:

Aww, thanks, Ben
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 5:30am Sem Chumbo:

Evocative set of indirect communication. Sweet, Jeff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 5:31am pacific standard simon:

Don't add the raspberries with the other fruits -- they will fall apart. Use them as a garnish for the glass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 5:32am pacific standard simon:

Circled back to the Garcia, Jeff!
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 5:33am Bentangle:

Did you see Kyle has packed up Grass-Top Records? It is no more :(
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 5:40am Jeff Conklin:

@Ben: I've talked to Kyle, he's got some cool things coming up. Don't cry ;)
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 5:41am Bentangle:

Sweeeet! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 5:43am pacific standard simon:

I could swear that Bert Jansch is advocating drinking and driving, but maybe my ears are fogged-up.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 5:55am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks for listening, all. Goodnight/morning
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 5:57am Bentangle:
