Happy to announce THE GREEN PATH, our new monthly radio show broadcast worldwide via CAMP Radio!
It’s been a warm and smoky summer, so August’s episode brings a breath of fresh air. This round spans space and time, with a lot of brand new tunes to digest. Non-stop music on the program, so we’ve included a few notes below.
After a quick welcome from Hiram, we receive a blessing of grainy tape bliss from Altamira (aka Jackie Beckey), pulled from her great self titled cassette on Dove Cove Records. The Man From Atlantis brings a gem of bent cosmic folk titled Death Rattle, from his recent "Volume 1" LP on Ramble Records, and waveforms dig deep with Sir Plastic Crimewave delivering a dose of pure space drone from his brand new album “Harbingers of Ascent”.
We’ve been hypnotized by the cloud of dream tone from Damiana, the excerpt here from Melted Reach offers a shining light, thanks Hausu Mountain. Fresh sunburnt croon from The Lodestones brings us back to dusty reality, with the track Silence is Golden from their upcoming new album “Exile on Earth”. Blue Phantom serves classic psych groove from the 1971 “Distortions” LP, and Millard (aka Jason Millard) delivers an instant hit with Forlorn Fist from his new album “Kicking a Hole” on Home & Garden.
The Savage Young Taterbug is a cultural treasure, and this untitled gem from “The Ragman Transmissions” on Goaty Tapes is a precious stone indeed. Bobby Lee brings smoke and drift, with a steady zoner from the “Origin Myths” LP on Tompkins Square, followed by the beautiful track Vivre Encore by Dominique Moimeaux, from “Retour Au Desert”, on Disques Alcibiade, 1983.
Spectrum (aka Sonic Boom) delivers heady trance shimmer with a track from 1992’s “Soul Kiss / Glide Divine”, and Weeping Bong Band brings deep zone propulsion and hazy half memories, from their first LP on Feeding Tube Records. Arushi Jain’s new album “Under the Lilac Sky” on Leaving Records is a beautiful oasis, and the track Richer Than Blood cools the core temp nicely. Decolonize Your Mind Society bring swinging micro tonal womp from Budapest with an excerpt of A Smooth Walk Upon the Creek, from the new “Live in Lumen 2019” album on Prepost.
We don’t usually buy in to Record Store Day releases, but the Thai Elephant Orchestra LP from Northern Spy Records was one of few exceptions this year, with Three Renats, Slit Drum delivering a soothing clang and immersive atmosphere. Scream is but one small slice of the Nicodemus & Matchez legacy, taken from the 1986 “Better Art Music” LP on Zedikiah Records, and things close with a quick foggy swirl from Visitations of Maine, with an excerpt from an untitled track from a self released s/t CDr from 2006.
