Morning everyone! Today's tower work has (I believe) just started. So we're off the FM but very much on the wprb.com! If that changes, I'll be sure to let you know
TAndy 10:01:21 AM
woo!!
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:10:11 AM
Hey TAndy!
Brian D 10:11:35 AM
This is excellent! We'll be on the lookout for them. Nawth Cackalacky goods
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:12:44 AM
They were so good when I saw them last week. Their fiddler, Tatiana Hargreaves is a force of nature
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:14:37 AM
Their bandcamp: https://hard-drive.bandcamp.com/music
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:16:17 AM
Shout out to hanna for this one!
TAndy 10:44:28 AM
this show going all places today, hell yeah
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:46:05 AM
Hahaha, it really is. Some days you gotta lean into the "free" of "freeform"
TAndy 10:48:12 AM
this weekend has just been so good for music to me ears
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:55:17 AM
Did you see any good shows? Or just the WPRB ambience?
TAndy 11:08:45 AM
Went to that party advertised on the station on Friday, got literally dozens of leaked or unreleased tracks from a Hardstyle festival over the weekend, and last nighht a good friend hosted a Vaporwave/adjacent music stream for charity
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:10:28 AM
Nice!
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:13:23 AM
Here's a picture of the Vina, the instrument being played on this track: https://www.waltersmetak.com.br/plasticas-sonoras.html
TAndy 11:14:41 AM
At the moment on a forum I'm on... This number may not be up to date but 79 new tracks were played, thoguh only a handful are available to take a peek at now
TAndy 11:15:08 AM
I like the pumpkin mushroom shaped nodule on top!
Dale Hazelton 11:27:59 AM
hey now. enjoyed that set of music.
Teresa P 11:29:08 AM
Hello friends! I love 'Araca Azul'! Veloso proudly relates that his 1973 record was the most hated -- and most often returned to the record store -- album of 1973!
TAndy 11:30:17 AM
Good day, Dale and Teresa!
Teresa P 11:32:25 AM
Thank you for introducing me to Walter Smetak, his music theory, and compositions! The Vina is amazing -- my favorite part of it is also the pumpkin mushroom nodule at the top that @TAndy appreciated!
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:33:27 AM
Hey Dale and Teresa! Reading this book has been really eye opening for me. There's always so much more interesting music out there that's been overlooked
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:34:01 AM
I'm also excited to track down any recordings from this project from Ensemble Musikfabrik in which they had four composers write new works for Smetak's plasticas sonoras: https://www.ensemble-modern.com/en/projects/re-inventing-smetak-2017
Colin 11:35:18 AM
pretty dang happy to hear Meshell Ndegeocello dripping new jammers like this
Colin 11:35:28 AM
*dropping
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:35:50 AM
This record is so fucking good. Honestly dripping works, too!
Colin 11:36:56 AM
An extreme amount of style or swagger
TAndy 11:40:52 AM
this rules
TAndy 11:54:23 AM
ty, dan!
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:57:36 AM
Thanks, TAndy! And thanks for tuning in, everyone! See you in 2 weeks
