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 1.20

For this show there were some tracks that have been waiting for a while to make an appearance, so I got as many in as I could. Transmission 1.20 includes a little of the wonder of the Slabco label, some fun nonsense from Saxana, Japanese TV and Messer Chups, Dot Allison’s cold wave tribute to science, the darker side of the usually Lifestyle Channel friendly Lemon Jelly and the superb Klaus Nomi.
