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.

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 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.
