Roffle 3:02:58 PM
:) Hi Ahab!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:03:43 PM
hi Roffle! How's it kicking
Roffle 3:05:44 PM
Doin' A okay. Always weird, but that's fine. How's the world?
Roffle 3:06:26 PM
No way! Maddona? Too funny!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:09:01 PM
hah I know, totally random for me but it was great
Roffle 3:09:57 PM
She still has the chops to pull it off. And a budget.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:10:28 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 3:33:30 PM
quiet day today
Jäsön 3:34:01 PM
Hey all. Was late, then lurking while working. I dug the Morag Tong song.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:34:29 PM
Sup Jason
Jäsön 3:37:14 PM
This drummer is gonna collapse after this song.
Rob F 3:37:43 PM
Hey there. I'm diggin the Verstärker
Jon Solomon 3:38:04 PM
I can't tune in currently due to some dumb reasons I'll spare you but hello Captain Ahab and all who sail with them.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:38:27 PM
hello hello all, welcome
Jäsön 3:39:00 PM
This is Verstarker song is a feat of endurance. Impressive.
Roffle 3:42:02 PM
Jon Solomon, man on a pizza quest! Good times...
Roffle 3:44:35 PM
Please tell me they don't have fish and chip with vinegar pizza's in England.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:44:51 PM
i have never seen a fish and chips pizza lol
Roffle 3:45:32 PM
After taco pizza's became a thing, I question everything now I guess.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:45:50 PM
domino's here had a cheeseburger pizza for some time
Captain Ahab (host) 3:45:56 PM
with pickles and everything
Captain Ahab (host) 3:46:18 PM
or as these weirdos call them, *gherkins*
Jon Solomon 3:46:56 PM
I have had a very good pizza with pickles and dill on it in recent memory.
Jon Solomon 3:47:11 PM
White pie. Wouldn't get all the time but was well-prepared.
Roffle 3:47:19 PM
Pickles?!? Yup, that is clearly over the line weirdo food for sure.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:47:26 PM
I am a big fan of white pies
Captain Ahab (host) 3:47:37 PM
tomatos are a new world vegetable!
Jon Solomon 3:49:06 PM
White pie with garlic, mushroom and spinach is a quality pie.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:49:29 PM
Teresa P 3:50:02 PM
Ahoy there Captain & Roffle! I have loved -- truly, LOVED! -- all the new tracks you've aired so far! So much great music coming out right now (and so little time to listen thoroughly to them while procrastinating from studying medical microbiology -- after all, the pathogens won't define and diagnose themselves). I'm super-curious about the Kara Delik as I nerd-out about all things
Teresa P 3:50:11 PM
all things
Roffle 3:50:28 PM
I concur with convention there. That sounds really good, as in the sum is greater than the parts sorta way.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:50:40 PM
hi Teresa! So glad you're enjoying the spins
Roffle 3:50:58 PM
Heya Teresa!
Teresa P 3:51:07 PM
all things German, especially when they are German-Turkish! Finally finished that sentence without pushing the return key!
Teresa P 3:53:43 PM
@Jon -- The white pie with spinach, mushrooms, and (just an insouciant hint of) garlic is my go-to fave as well! <3
Teresa P 4:01:19 PM
My question to you, Cap'n, is: do Kara Delik blend Western and Eastern (Anatolian) scales and instrumentation in many of their songs? Is that characteristic of their music? Because I really dig the sound they achieve!
Teresa P 4:03:21 PM
'Jenseits Des Jenseits' = Beyond Beyond
Captain Ahab (host) 4:08:53 PM
hi Teresa, yeah Kara Delik seem to borrow from the Anatolian Rock tradition
Jon Solomon 4:12:08 PM
Glad to learn Carlton Melton are still at it!
Roffle 4:13:56 PM
The semitones in that Delik song suggest micro fretted strings at the ready. I would so love to hit a pawn shop in Ankara if they have such things there.
Teresa P 4:14:30 PM
I think I've talked before about living in Hamburg way back in the mid-80s -- basically at the height of the 'Gastarbeiter' era. When I was there, I was saddened by the enormous divide between German and Turkish cultures in Germany. In the past 30 odd years, I see so much more collaboration between the cultures and second and third generation German Turkish arts and cultural presence has gained so much more prominence and (much deserved) attention -- in German language fiction, in music, in film
Captain Ahab (host) 4:15:17 PM
Jon this is the first of two new albums this year!
Teresa P 4:16:09 PM
@Roffle -- Right?! Loved the semitones in that Delik song!
Jon Solomon 4:19:18 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:21:47 PM
Teresa I know what you mean about the cultural divide, and I agree it's nice to see those divisions eroding
Roffle 4:28:26 PM
German avant-garde hookah shop film. Count me in.
Teresa P 4:31:29 PM
OOooo, Roffle -- Such a thing exists?
Teresa P 4:38:43 PM
This Sunwatchers is like metal-inflected Pharoah Sanders
Captain Ahab (host) 4:38:54 PM
metal terry riley
Mike Tropiano 4:41:50 PM
Very apt description!
Mike Tropiano 4:47:04 PM
Thought this was Mars Volta at first, now even more so!
Jäsön 4:48:33 PM
HDC song is smokin'. Love when they go to halftime.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:49:06 PM
so so good, would love to catch them live
Rob F 4:54:42 PM
Great new music today! Thanks
Captain Ahab (host) 4:56:31 PM
cheers friends, catch you next time
Mike Tropiano 4:56:49 PM
Thank you Ahab.
Jäsön 4:56:59 PM
Cool show, thanks Captain.
Roffle 4:57:21 PM
👍 🖖
