Static + Distance
A mix that I put together back in June of 2014. My selections for “best of the first half of 2014.” All of these albums are still worthy of your attention.
Jams of the summer variety. Everything from locals The Domestics to kiwi rock legend Chris Knox.
Zach’s back with me this week and he’s got some gems. We stuck to folk and country this time around and brought you some down home, summer night pluckin’.
This is not the original broadcast from July 1st. This is far superior. A mix of some top-notch house, IDM and experimental electronic. For best results, listen after dark. Note: You can download the mix below, but if you’d rather just stream it, then head over to Mixcloud.
An all-vinyl set with special guest Zach. Selections range from to the smooth funk of William DeVaughn to the song you’ll never believe is by Wings. You can download the raw audio below or stream the refined version over at the Static + Distance Mixcloud.
Songs about time. The wrong time, the hours and the donut of the heart. Photo: A 19th century postcard from Ottoman-era Plovdiv. Note: An alternate version of this podcast can be found on Mixcloud.
Songs about all sorts of things. No theme today, just a half hour of songs selected in the heat of a false alarm.
Songs by Sufjan Stevens and others. This show is part Sufjan and part influencers/influencees. The artist plays the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on June 8th. Read more here. Photo: Sufjan Stevens (Obviously). Note: An alternate, refined version of this podcast is available to stream at Mixcloud.
Songs about where you are, where you’ve been and where you’re going. Photo: Claude Lorrain’s The Origin of Coral or Perseus with Head of the Medusa NOTE: Due to technical difficulties, the show does not actually begin until about 3 minutes into the podcast.
Songs to guide one through a harrowing, swampy odyssey. A special guest tells a story with music to guide us along the journey. Photo: A Michigan swamp. <em>Note: An alternate, refined version of this episode is available on Mixcloud.
