Room: Episode 15 (Show Notes)

Here is this week's show notes:

  • I played two tracks from the cellar and point. If you enjoyed hearing their music, you might enjoy an excellent podcast featuring two members of the band discussing the making of their 2014 album, ambit.

  • I played a track from the new Birdman (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) and mentioned a bit about the process of creating the all-percussion soundtrack. You can read more about this process here.

  • Discovered a "new to me" radio station, WFMU out of Jersey City, NJ. They feature some really interesting music--both boundary-pushing and sonically challenging (at times) but also important works and fantastic tracks as well. A melange for sure--but in a very good way! They also provide a mobile app that makes accessing older broadcasts and shows easy. If you want to listen via their mobile app, download the iPhone version here and the Android version here.

  • NPR posted a short-but-sweet segment,"'Voices Within The Music': A Brief History Of Guitar Effects." It features, among others, Nels Cline discussing guitar pedals and effects. It is a good listen, You can listen to it here.
