Audio Dispatches from Europe

We had a ten hour drive today, so I had a lot of free time in the van. Here are two micromixes and a new Atlas Sound EP....


Micromix 7:

1. Susumu Yokota - Daremoshiranai Chiisanakuni (From Image: 1983-1998)
2. Auetechre - Rettic AC (From Chiastic Slide)
3. My Bloody Valentine - All I Need (From "Isn't Anything")

10. Hugh LeCaine - Paulution Charnel Number Five (From "Compositions and
Demonstrations" One time Lockett and I ate an eighth of mushrooms and decided to drive to find a church in Alabama that would heal us. As we were driving through the countryside at sunrise, this played on the weakening fm bands of our beloved WREK's overnight freeform programming and blew our minds. We were about 18)
11. Casino Versus Japan - Untitled (From a CD accompanying an issue of YETI magazine. The CD had bands paying tribute to Raymond Scott, This song will always remind me of driving around the suburbs where I grew up at night, delivering chinese food and longing for somebody. I think its a really sweet lullaby-like song)

Atlas Sound - Altitude Sickness

Recorded today during a 10 hour drive from Austria to Switzerland, through the Swiss Alps. These are reinterpretations of a few of my favorite doo-wop songs filtered through a thick gauze of motion-sickness and boredom...

1. come softly (originally performed by the Fleetwoods)
2. you're so fine (originally performed by the Falcons)
3. you belong to me (originally performed by the Duprees)
