Good afternoon, readers..bloggers, what have you…
I feel like my favorite kind of music is the kind that creates more of an environment…a place, instead of a song. My next two coming up guests do just that, but in different ways.
Alex Koenig’s latest work through his music project NMesh are dense soundscapes of audio pulled from various media of the 80’s & 90’s. I told him it reminded me of a ‘haunted Youtube loop’. His newest release, Dream Sequins, has been getting a pretty healthy dose of positive press.
You can listen to it, as well as his other many albums, at the NMesh Bandcamp. Alex’s episode will air May 7th.
Coming up May 28th will be the force behind Phourist, Nick Hill. Phourist sometimes has a ‘dark concert hall sound’, and others a rock structure with narratives that will get you daydreaming. You can hear his work at his website or catch him at The Rudyard Kipling tonight. The show starts around 8, with a five dollar cover charge.
Possibilities for the upcoming months….
Maybe a retro-futuristic sculptor, with heavy symbolism.
Possibly filmmakers of a different variety, who make videos created with the goal of invoking some kind of feeling.
Definitely a crazy event showcasing creative folks worth celebrating.
If you’re lucky…a pretty familiar face, for those eccentric record nerds hanging around the city.
I’ll leave you with these encouraging words.
