JAN 30 NEW SHIT - hosted by Mama's Boy

Background "talking-over" music for this episode was "Flatbed to Kyaiktiyo" by Parallel Pyres.
Please check out more of his jams here

For this week's episode of New Shit, I played my selection of new releases straight through with the exception of the last album (Expressway comp) which I played selections from due to time constraints (not that time exists, ass-people).

NEW SLIP: AJ's Final Chapter

After about 3 or 4 years of hosting New Shit, this was my
(AJ) final crack at it, and i was pretty sad to let it go....
New Shit is run by CKUT's Music Department, it
focusing on new releases in CKUT's Library while serving as
a training ground for new station volunteers to learn how to
operate the station's main on-air broadcast console.

I was going to start off with Europe's the Final Countdown,
but then i remembered the Acapella version of Roy Orbison's
Crying sung in Spanish by Rabekah Del Rio during the
theatre scene in David Lynch's Mulholland Drive which is
more in tune with the new shit vibe. I slowed it down and
worked CKUT's internet stream as a looper.

Here's the track listing for the show:
Rebekah Del Rio - Mulholland Drive O.S.T. - Llorando

Live sounds and howling in studio

Chris Watson - El Tren Fantasma - Los Mochis (Type)
Le Quatuor De Jazz Libre du Québec - 1973 - Sans Titre (Tenzier)
Juma Sultan's Aboriginal Music Society - father of Origin - Untitled (Eremite)

Bass Communion and Pig - Important Records Sampler 2011 - Sucedio Antes (Important)

Yamantaka Sonic Titan - YT//ST - Hoshi Neko (Psychic Handshake)
JAson Urick - I love You -The Crying Song (Thrill Jockey)

Goodbye goodbye goodbye song

background music:
Eliane Radigue 's - transamorem transmortem (important records)

“Before the greatest achievement
Before the greatest detachment.
At the limit of the frontier space of the unconscious - tuned waves - "consonant things vibrate together".
Where does the change happen? In the inner field of perception or the exterior reality of moving things in the course of becoming.
"And time is no longer an obstacle, but the means by which the possible is achieved".
Eliane Radigue - June 20, 1973

or after the fact: ARCHIVES


Digging deep into the Free Music Archives, an amazing
project initiative by the fabulous fols down at WFMU
in Jersey City. The FMA is bringing creative music to
the world from obscure folk and are amassing an arsenal
of sound that you would not likely be able to get to the
bottom of. I scratched the surface of 2011 and came up
with this playlist that i feature excerpts from during the
first hour of so this edition of new shit:

And then i moved on to some brand new shit on Important Records
and something from Crustacé Tapes
Master Musicians of Bukkake - Important recs. 2011 sampler - Iron Age Nativity/ Black Moss Invocation
Miguel A. Garcia / Thomas Gris - Crustaces Tapes - side A

Ellen Fullman - Through Glass Panes - Flowers (Important)
