“It’s Too Damn Early” Commentary for 2/10/07

Today’s broadcast went very well. I was pleased to play from a number of new albums, many of which were making their ITDE debut– Mystified’s “Instability”, released on Ambolthue Records; on Edgetone Records, Doctor Bob’s “Dark Times;” the ambitious Asphodel release “Blixter Toad” from duo Fe-Mail; and “NPFAI.1/Palmos/NPFAI.3/Praxis” by Dimitri Voudouris on Pogus Productions.

I had intended to do a lot of mixing and blending of sounds tonight, but never really got around to it in force. In the last hour, I spent about thirty minutes blending a variety of tracks, and although it was a nice effect, I simply didn’t find myself in the blending mood after all. This is one interesting aspect of my broadcasts: that I often find out what the show is going to consist of along with the listeners!

Today’s show was also notable because of a couple smells. For some reason, the Hi-Life Room was smelling a bit stale, so I sprinkled some carpet odorizer about. Unfortunately, it must have been industrial-strength, because I was going crazy smelling oranges for the rest of the show. I barely sprinkled any! Such are the torments I bear to bring you fine experimental music.

As usual, I am sharing a copy of the complete broadcast. It is a single 64kbps mp3 file, recorded directly from our online stream. This is not intended to be a substitute for purchasing the actual albums, which I truly encourage you to do. If you are upset by this file being made available, please contact me. Otherwise, enjoy your playlist!
