Dream Pop

This weeks Twisted Groove was sparked by the most recent tour of Dean & Britta (of Luna fame). They have composed music for and are touring with Screen Tests films of Andy Warhol. Someone once called Luna’s music Dream Pop which I think is a fitting description. So this weeks show tries to blend other artist that might fall into the Dream Pop category. Regrettably the second set recording was stopped short by yet another computer glitch. When I can find the time I would like to recreate the second set.

Some weeks ago I saw Bonnie Prince Billy (Will Oldham) at Santa Fe Brewing Company. This inspired me to create a Twisted Groove show with his music along with other related artist. Will Oldham is an amazing live performer. He reinterprets many of his songs quite differently in a live setting giving way to fascinating renditions. Here is a show comprised of Indie Folk and Indie related music which I believe make up a beautiful whole. This show also features some artists from Bedroom Community Records which is a cool label located in Iceland.

Audio Buddha and the Buddha Machine Edit

Audio Buddha

This week’s Twisted Groove show consists of an interview with and the music of Audio Buddha (Steve Brisk). An interesting blend of eastern sounds and electronica. In the second half of the show I mix the Buddha Machine with Richie Hawtin’s record DE9/Closer To The Edit/Parts and throw in some Muslimgauze and Shankar for a more traditional ending to the evening. I have also edited out the Buddha Machine mix as a separate file for you download/listening pleasures.
