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.

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 2.2

SL202

Hello people, Transmission 2.2 has landed. Listening back to this one I thought it sounded like a bit of a mixed bag, but then, most of my shows are. I just hope it’s all kind of everything. Oh, and when I was previewing the show on the tram I looked up and saw a girl wearing a Barry Morgan t-shirt. What spooky synchronicity. Oh, and – bunnies! Enjoy.

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.
