Transmission 1.21 – Xmas

T1.21 Xmas

It’s that time of year, so here’s a Christmas special – Space Library style. Apart from the odd version of traditional songs, most of these pieces of music have little to do with the event at hand. It is, however, music that sounds to me like it should, or could. Small touches of magic and paganism dot the proceedings, Kahimi Karie covers a lovely Virgina Astley song, there’s some lounge moments, early electronics, modern hauntology, and delicate sounds from Kate Bush, Pizzicato Five and the High Llamas.

Transmission 1.18 – Haunted [Special]

transmission 1.18 haunted

The time has come to delve into the more mysterious vaults of The Space Library for the 2013 Halloween special – Haunted.

A psychic message has suggested we side-step the witches/pumpkin/black cat type of Halloween in favour of a gloomy carnival of possessed laboratories, tables that tilt, E.S.P. phenomena research, mortuaries, 1960′s pop-gothic cinema, disembodied voices, and a boutique de la mort.

Seance instructions are skillfully provided by The Amazing Kreskin, and Hauntological audio has been coaxed out of the Ghost Box roster and Clinkskell’s finest – Moon Wiring Club. You dare not miss the unsettling ambiance of Oneohtrix Point Never, Alan Hawkshaw, The Wash Daddies and Gelg, and be sure to gather around the parlour and clasp your palms together for two of Stephin Merritt’s fine tales of tragic woe.

Goodnight all.
