Are you human? If so, who are you?
kilbey1 7:43:47 PM
Jon Whitney (host) 7:52:36 PM
i'm here now
kilbey1 7:53:15 PM
Great idea for the show today.
ex DJ tamer 7:54:29 PM
Lovely music for us lovely people?
Jon Whitney (host) 8:05:45 PM
yes of course
ᚨᛇᛟᛊ 8:18:03 PM
My brain-meats contain the word "turbidity" because it is one of the prime takeaway words used to describe wine (by wine snobs)
kilbey1 8:23:16 PM
I've had the pleasure of seeing Mary Lattimore a couple times.
Zen Pathology 8:24:43 PM
This is beautiful.
Jon Whitney (host) 8:27:32 PM
i've seen mary once
Jon Whitney (host) 8:27:54 PM
but i got to interview her for the podcast - and got to say hi in person, what an amazing talent
kilbey1 8:28:15 PM
I was too intimidated to approach her when I could.
ex DJ tamer 8:28:55 PM
Who else was on the bill with her at The Sinclair? I can't remember. Do either of you?
kilbey1 8:31:47 PM
Not sure about that venue, but she was with Julianna Barwick in Austin. Silent Land Time Machine opened for them.
kilbey1 8:33:50 PM
Wow, here's a blast from the past.
ex DJ tamer 8:34:44 PM
Wondering what's a good pairing with Mary's music. Silent Land Time Machine is a great name for a band. Should I look them up?
kilbey1 8:36:09 PM
ex DJ tamer 8:38:42 PM
I just looked them up on bandcamp. They are tagged as "neoclassical", among other things.
kilbey1 8:39:40 PM
He does synths and treated violin.
ex DJ tamer 8:39:59 PM
I'll have to give it a listen, thanks!
Jon Whitney (host) 8:41:35 PM
i can't remember who mary opened for!
kilbey1 8:43:06 PM
It wasn't Julianna Barwick?
Jon Whitney (host) 8:44:58 PM
no it was a loud rock band
Jon Whitney (host) 8:45:24 PM
kilbey1 8:46:41 PM
Wow, that's a weird combo
ex DJ tamer 8:49:39 PM
I don't remember a thing about Iceage. Probably we heard one song and left.
Jon Whitney (host) 8:50:13 PM
yeah it wasn't very compelling
ex DJ tamer 8:51:37 PM
Hey, I've been posting this in various chat rooms this week. Bandcamp is doing another FEE FREE FRIDAY on Sept. 4. This is when they don't charge bands any fees on the sales for one day, to help artists make it through the pandemic.
kilbey1 8:52:36 PM
Yep, I've got some queued up in checkout for Friday. :)
ex DJ tamer 8:52:14 PM
They are doing this on the first Friday of the month for the rest of 2020.
ex DJ tamer 8:53:11 PM
New fans of Mary Lattimore can purchase her music (vinyl, CD, or download) directly from Mary at https://marylattimoreharpist.bandcamp.com
kilbey1 8:54:20 PM
Whoah, playing Coil!
ᚨᛇᛟᛊ 8:55:18 PM
This was one of the first tracks I ever heard from Coil when I was using Napster in junior high. Definitely never heard this version, though.
Jon Whitney (host) 8:56:32 PM
well this is a cover
Jon Whitney (host) 9:00:07 PM
wish it were a clear night for this song, definitely moon musick by the light of the moon
kilbey1 9:00:06 PM
That should be a theme of a show.
Jon Whitney (host) 9:07:03 PM
ᚨᛇᛟᛊ 9:10:02 PM
Might as well do a simple Thoth Tarot read for the night. Past/Present/Future:

kilbey1 9:14:42 PM
Highly recommend a project from some close friends of mine while we are vaguely on the subject,"Book of Shadows"
kilbey1 9:17:47 PM
Sounding mind-blowing on my new speakers. And yes, I have it turned up.
ᚨᛇᛟᛊ 9:19:12 PM
cool to hear them play this at paradise with you, Jon
Jon Whitney (host) 9:19:55 PM
yeah the first time i saw them play the paradise this song didn't exist
chamboulé 9:21:26 PM
well, that certainly was jarring
chamboulé 9:21:59 PM
I guess you don't choose the public service announcements, Jon?
Jon Whitney (host) 9:21:48 PM
i do
Jon Whitney (host) 9:22:07 PM
i love bea arthur
kilbey1 9:22:14 PM
Anyone have other really beautiful songs to recommend?
chamboulé 9:23:07 PM
I suppose horse urine chat can be beautiful, in the right context
kilbey1 9:23:10 PM
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:23:53 PM
really awesome show this evening.
ex DJ tamer 9:24:10 PM
@kilbey1 - I will recommended Boat Woman Song by Holger Czukay & Rolf Dammers.
Jon Whitney (host) 9:24:18 PM
thanks jamie
kilbey1 9:24:40 PM
Thanks ex DJ tamer
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:25:26 PM
It's been a stressful week, and this evening has been quite soothing.
Jon Whitney (host) 9:25:49 PM
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:26:21 PM
Is there a way to access PSAs and IDs from the station?
Jon Whitney (host) 9:26:14 PM
somebody uploaded a bunch
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:27:28 PM
ahh, I need to get that link.
Jon Whitney (host) 9:28:10 PM
i like the asthma one just to hear that ddeeeep radio announcer voice say "hweeez"
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:29:55 PM
yeah, that's a good one.
kilbey1 9:37:49 PM
Boom! Nice cover.
Jon Whitney (host) 9:39:23 PM
chamboulé 9:42:13 PM
Did your "non-regular listener" enjoy the show, Jon?
Jon Whitney (host) 9:42:11 PM
Jon Whitney (host) 9:42:18 PM
i may have lost her at Coil
Jon Whitney (host) 9:42:48 PM
this last hour is a little weird
Jon Whitney (host) 9:43:00 PM
for non-regular listeners
ᚨᛇᛟᛊ 9:47:00 PM
I need it weird and potent. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
kilbey1 9:51:14 PM
Weird and potent is good.
Jon Whitney (host) 9:52:20 PM
i can't figure out who ᚨᛇᛟᛊ is
kilbey1 9:52:24 PM
Ooooooohhhhhh LABRADFORD
Jon Whitney (host) 9:52:59 PM
labradford stayed at my house a couple times, slept on my couches
kilbey1 9:53:07 PM
Jon Whitney (host) 9:53:22 PM
they liked the sound of my toilet flush in that old place
kilbey1 9:53:40 PM
Jon Whitney (host) 9:53:55 PM
wanted to mic it
kilbey1 9:55:08 PM
Could have done something like Matmos did with Ultimate Care II, except with toilets.
ex DJ tamer 9:55:13 PM
If bands wrote reviews of the crash pads they experienced while touring, certainly the environmental sound would be an important attribute!
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:56:34 PM
i really like this, kind of across between peter green and maurice deebank.
kilbey1 9:59:47 PM
Wonderful show!
Jon Whitney (host) 9:59:51 PM
Jon Whitney (host) 10:00:47 PM
i need sleep now!
