Hah... That 12k label is based out of Pound Ridge, NY.
I used to slice deli meats in the grocery store in Pound Ridge.

You'll be obsessed with flutes and horns for hours.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm ɨkɛ:

@yippie, if Iranians count (is that western Asia? central?) then I think I remember hearing Sheila B. talk about being from Iran, though if I am remembering that wrong, somebody please correct me. Prior to her, maybe you'd have to go all the way back to Janitor from Mars w/R. Lim.

great show Daniel! this "Rolling Mass" reminds me of old LA IDM noise Pthalocyanine from the late 90s
Avatar 10:51pm still b/p:

These rhythms are in my hands as I go to the kitchen, but I'm wondering if the dimbiddy-boddity-biddafadoo on the open upper cabinet doors is carrying annoyingly up through the building to the upstairs tenants.

thank you got this meditation

The upstairs tenants will take it and love it.

Yessss!!!! Robert Rental!!!! Never heard on the radio before tonight...and that’s why I love WFMU.

Tee Ess! Robert Rental is great! Glad you're diggin! Have you heard The Bridge album? It's wunderschnapps!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm melinda:

Enjoying the sounds.

@StillB/P: ProTip™… Your neighbors don’t care. Maybe their pets? But not really…
  11:02pm Tee Ess:

Yessir! Lurvs me some Thomas Leer too. I must correct myself, though- I think Samantha played “Double Heart” on her show a while back. “Day Breaks, Night Heals” shoulda been a hit...somewhere! Never heard this stuff before- much appreciated...

Great sounds tonight, thank you Daniel! Great music to do some drawing to...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Fox:

I saw Robin Hitchcock last night. He's a very charming man, and it's endearing to hear how Nashville has infiltrated his British vernacular.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm George of Troy:

Hey there, Daniel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm melinda:

I wonder what they came up with when looking for the brighter side of Stalin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Daniel Blumin:

Tee Ess, agreed! "Day Break, Night Heals" is a classic!
Avatar 11:20pm JakeGould:

Revisionist history is stunning but never surprising. Basically you just wait for most living survivors and defenders of their history to pass away and then just fill in the blanks.

Kinda like what is happening in Poland where they want to legislate (!!!) not disparaging Poles with regards to World War II. That would essentially wipe away any Polish collaboration and state “Hey, we were all victims!” when that wasn’t the case.

Anyway, I like what this whale is singing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Daniel Blumin:

Thank you, dan!!! Hiya, George! Hola, ! I X Key ! Glad ya dug the soundz, ngh! Did Robyn do "My Wife And My Dead Wife", Fox?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm melinda:

I found a review of the film that says the filmmakers seem unduly fascinated with a certain Stalin apologist but gives big thumbs up to the sound design and score.
Avatar 11:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Avatar 11:24pm northguineahills:

or... as most Georgians hate Stalin (he was native born), there is still a museum to him in Gori, his birthplace.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm cklequ:

Wow... This Red Soul track is incredible.
Stop forcing me to buy music, Mr. Blumin.
I've still got to give a few bucks to the station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm Daniel Blumin:

melinda, there's the victory in the Great Patriotic War (as it's called in Russia) for starters. The industrialization of the country... You have a cult of personality and it stays in the psyche for generations... Yes, I sort of got that vibe from the write-up. The director says - " “All my life I’ve been fascinated by the fact that there is no unequivocal truth. " I'd say that millions of dead are fairly unequivocal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Daniel Blumin:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Daniel Blumin:

It IS cklequ!!!
Avatar 11:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

We both came in to favorite the same piece
Avatar 11:28pm JakeGould:

@Daniel: Funny you mention the cult of personality. My brother—who grew up in Communist Poland—has a clear memory of being in school one day and someone swapping out the portrait of Jesus with a portrait of Stalin. Which was better/worse for a small Jewish kid to look at? Who knows! But there you go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm Fox:

Daniel: I don't think so, but I had to step outside twice because of how hot it was in Monty Hall, so I might've missed it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm melinda:

@Daniel that all makes sense.
Avatar 11:29pm still b/p:

Daniel covered it while I was typing, so it's now just ditto-ish, but yeah: Showed strength, kept order, rallied patriots, brought the nation through the massive trauma of WWII. And that outweighs repression, brutality and large scale murder. ...is sorta how the defense/elevation/bright-siding of Stalin goes. And one can only listen to or read it with the jaw hanging open.
Avatar 11:30pm JakeGould:

Well, hey… “Great Again Make Russia!”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm melinda:

@Jake exactly.
Avatar 11:38pm northguineahills:

For everyone who wants a view from the Baltics, this podcast, "The Eastern Border", gives a firsthand account of living in the Soviet Union in Latvia: theeasternborder.lv... Very educated, yet fun and informal. And he has first hand witnesses to tell their accounts.
