David Sylvian and Related Sounds

This weeks Twisted Groove features the music of David Sylvian and artists who, in some ways, echo his sound. I’ve recently had him on my mind. An old friend from my home in New Hampshire shared with me a connection to David Sylvian. My friend’s son is dating the musician’s daughter.

VDay Variety Part One

This weeks Twisted Groove has a lot of variety. Being Valentine week I start out with some love then quickly move into much of the new music I have recently acquired. So what transpires is a mixture of music that spans from Electronic to Indie to Ethnic to New Orleans. I hope you enjoy…

Help Me Somebody Part 1

This weeks Twisted Groove is an interesting show of No Wave, New Wave, Underground Music from New York and Afro Funk,. Much of the music being African drum rooted with funky bass lines. I start the show off with outtake tracks from David Byrne and Brian Eno’s album My Life in the Bush of Ghosts and go right into Talking Heads Remain In Light Album, choosing the outtake track Fela’s Riff from that album. A bit later I get into a Arthur Russel track which is Underground Dance music and contains a lot of Afro type percussion with a persistent bass kick. The Fela thread moves through the whole show but not in the most overt way. If you give it a listen I am sure you’ll agree and agree that it is a super fun show!!
