Liveblogging! Commentary for “ITDE” 3/21/09 March 21, 2009 At last! Local filmmaker Alex Ryterski brought in a copy of his noise documentary “Nonexistant,” which contains portions of the interview I mentioned so many months ago. I’m super-excited about having been a part of this, so I’m definitely going to find out if he’ll let me share it with you in some fashion. Until then, I hope you enjoyed the broadcast– you may keep this playlist as a memento of the time we spent together this day. BTW, did you hear? I played new stuff from Warm Climate AND Hotel, Hotel. Yes, I’m the luckiest music lover on the planet. Both of these releases are terrific, so don’t sleep on them!

Commentary for “ITDE” 3/14/09 March 14, 2009 I’m back! My self-imposed exile is over, Future DaveX says it’s safe for me to return– I was getting sick of him anyway– what a stereo hog! Anyways, I have a great show for you today, so I’m going to jump right into the playlist. I guess some folks were fooled by Future DaveX’s cover story about me being in the Bahamas– I was actually inhabiting a 6×6 styrofoam cubicle– because when I got back to WDBX to check my mail, the fine folks at Hymns Records had sent me the latest Ironing disc, “Nassau”. This would have really been an awesome thing to find had I actually been coming back from a cruise to the same place! Better luck next time, guys. Do you have any recordings of styrofoam cubicles? I’m homesick. Why yes, I DID just play from Zelphabet comps “F” and “G”. If you’re any sort of noise fan whatsoever, you can do yourself no harm (okay, maybe some minor ear bleeding) picking these up. Featuring Fin, Frans De Waard, Francisco Lopez, Government Alpha, Giancarlo Toniutti, and of course GX Jupitter-Larsen, among others… Jeff Rehnlund sent some new vinyl from Hot Releases, a label/zine he’s running with fellow Boyzone member Ryan Martin. “Gangnam Basement” wouldn’t be out of place on the Hymns label– good field recording soundwork that focuses more on composition and a sense of place than it does on nitpicking the audio quality– in other words, just the sort of thing I like to hear. The second LP, American Band’s “Low Fiction”, is more of a noise assault. I’m guessing power tools are involved, and more than likely a fair amount of abused metal objects. I’m not discounting this one as simple dumb noise though; there’s too much effort here, it just takes a while to focus through the din. Thought I’d let you know– Frank Rothkamm’s “Genius Is Star Struck” will be making my Best of 2009 list. Better grab it now!
