May Twenty- Sixth

Agitation Free
The Alien Jams podcast is now available on the NTS Site.  It ended up being quite an upbeat show,  probably because it was actually sunny here, which makes a change for London (and I’m from Seattle). Hope you like the tunes this week… (show starts about 1 minute into the podcast)
Elecktroids- Silicon Valley
Casco- Cybernetic Love
Queen Samantha- Take a Chance
Kano- It’s a War
Francis Bebey- Super Jingle
Les Yas Toupas Du Zaire- Je Ne Bois Pas Beaucoup
Brainticket- The Space Between

Bruce Haack- Man Kind
Transllusion- Dimensional Glide

Looking forward to seeing Bee Mask at Cafe Oto this Saturday, June 1st.   His latest album, When We Were Eating Unripe Pears was released on Spectrum Spools in November of 2012. 

Disjecta’s Mix

This past Sunday it was a pleasure to have Disjecta in the studio for Alien Jams.  The show’s tracklist can be found below and the podcast starts one minute in.  

   Disjecta does a bi-weekly show on NTS radio, on Wednesdays from 2-3pm.

 Disjecta membra is Latin for “scattered members” and is used to refer to surviving fragments of ancient pottery, manuscripts and other cultural objects, and even fragments of ancient poetry. It is derived from “disjecti membra poetae,” referring to the limbs of a dismembered poet, a phrase used by the Roman author Horace. Scholars have studied fragments of ancient Greek pottery in institutional collections and have attributed many such pieces to the artists who made them. In a number of instances they have been able to identify fragments now in different collections that belong to the same vase.
