Transmission 2.6 – Japan

Stream/Download at PodOmatic or download here

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 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.
