I had a little break between posts but here’s the next in the 2.0 series of The Space Library – previously only broadcast on the sadly departed Basic.fm. A fair bit of Library, or Library-ish things, below and there are some newbies to the Library including Pole, Crepuscule’s The French Impressionists, Johanna Group, The Bugaloos, Jerry Goldsmith,Michel Fugain, Garvarentz, Stu Phillips and Grauzone. I even snuck in a Human League B-Side that still slays.

The Space Library Transmissions are now available to download

You heard right, each page should now have a download link that will get you the audio file of each show. If any of them are wrong (and some may be, it’s been a long day) please let me know in the comments and I’ll fix them up.

In other news, since the sad demise of the superb Basic.fm it may appear that The Space Library has likewise gone with it. This is true, to a point, but I still have a few more Transmissions that appeared on Basic but haven’t been provided otherwise – and those will be arriving here soon. There’s also a few “Wake Up” artists specials I put together. These also never appeared on the SL blog but will also turn up sooner or later.

In addition – new stuff is coming for 2015. But more about that in due course.

Transmission 2.7

Here’s the latest selection from the Space Library – carefully curated and a little bit spacey. The wondrous Kahimi Karie gets us started with a lovely electronic puzzle called ‘Blue Orb’, a short diversion into the world of Stereolab then leads us into Patrick Cowley’s porn soundtrack music (believe the hype, it’s excellent). I’ll skim through the rest but Family Fodder again prove that they were the band that should have received far more accolades – and the same goes for the Gentle People whose ‘Superstar’ mixes a deep space ambiance with E.L.O. vocoder processed vocals. Let’s do this.

Transmission 2.6 – Japan

This program is usually made in Australia, however this episode was made in Japan. Well, not really, but I was in Japan at the time it went to air so indulge me. The playlist for Transmission 2.6 was entirely music by Japanese artists with a small bit of poetic licence to include Kraftwerk singing in Japanese (which lead nicely into P5 sampling the same song). There’s some funny nonsense from the likes of Picky Picnic and Hikashu, a knockout piece from the Crue-L Grand Orchestra selected by the superb Kahimi Karie for her Crystallization compilation album, the odd bit of anime music, the delightful bedroom recordings of Akane Hosaka, Cibo Matto’s Yuka Honda, and Sketch show, the band that reunites Haruomi Hosono & Yukihiro Takahashi (2 thirds of Yellow Magic Orchestra). スペースライブラリ

Transmission 2.5

SL205 (2)
Birds. Clocks. Lurid colours. What does it all mean? I don’t know, why are you asking me such things? Let’s strap in for the latest transmission for the Space Library, the repository of all things musically rather wonderful, many of which have been forgotten.
No longer.
Deux will coax you in with a 7″ single b-side, really, this much excellence consigned to a flipside? There should be a law. From there it’s all manner of groovy choral  from The Free Design, Fad Gadget in a hospital, German space exploration via television, Broadcast making an audio stew of the music of Miki Furukawa, the Future Bible Heroes at their most heartbreaking-ist, and Hugo Montenegro wants to be a cowboy. And, scene.

Transmission 2.4

SL204

Strap yourself in, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.  We start with Shock, everyone’s favourite New Romantic robot dancers (a hotly contested accolade), Family Fodder at their most delightful, and finally some more of the magnificent Danielle Dax. I went to her flat once, remind me to tell you about it someday. Saint Etienne spook it up for Peter Thomas and John Foxx’s masterpiece The Garden simply dares you not to love it. Dares you.

Transmission 2.3

 

SL203

The Space Library has been delving into the galactic archives, this time with SL virgins like the baroque-pop of The Jumping Jacques, a little glam stomp from Hot Rocks – and is that really The Popinjays?

The Flying Lizards recruit the magnificence of Patti Paladin and Michael Nyman to flesh out ‘Hands 2 Take’, there’s Japanese techno-poppers Capsule in an uncharacteristically non-pop moment, and Blackpool’s little known and  decidedly lo-fi Le Lu/Lu’s get it down on tape, in the post, and out to the cassette compilation indie-world. We even delve into a little campery with an ‘Are You Being Served’ set-ette. For the next hour at least, we hope you’re free.
