AGB Radio (January 23, 2017) – Label Spotlight: Debacle Records


 

Debacle is run by one dude, Sam Melancon, out of Seattle and he’s been at it for over a decade. It’s been an AGB mainstay ever since I first heard that Megabats record back in 2009 and I’ve been faithful ever since (oh what’s that? you’re wondering what my favorite Debacle release is? so glad you asked. it’s almost certainly Total Life’s Bender/Drifter). From now until the end of the month (I think?) he’s got just about every release on the Bandcamp page set to pay what you want. So go download literally everything because it’s super eclectic and all 100% amazing and throw Sam as much money as you can. Then make sure you head back later this year when he drops the new High Aura’d and Aquarelle records (!!!!!).

A Thick Mist (January 18, 2017)


 

I fuckin love that Hollerin’ record, such a weird one, and it went pretty well with Lowe’s drones. And just fyi, both Holly Hunt and Obolus were played at 33 instead of 45, so Holly Hunt got really fuckin sludgy and I might even prefer Obolus slowed down, or at least that song.

And I need to take every chance I get to share this Charlotte Daniels & Pat Webb record. It’s one of my all-time favorites. And this post where I made it available for people to download has become a home to conversation between Charlotte’s & Pat’s friends & family, sharing personal memories, including a comment from their niece to let everyone know Pat had just died. It’s my favorite thing on the internet and is exactly the sort of thing the internet is perfect for.

There’s probably only a few names on here that you don’t recognize and one of them is probably MJ Lallo and that is seriously the only one that matters. Full Spectrum dug up a copy of the original 1988 tape, remastered it, and shared it with the world, vocal heavy weirdo exotica that sounds a bit like The Knife + Suzanne Ciani.

A Thick Mist (January 11, 2017)


 

Not too much experimentation this time. And once again, the recording starts late. I hit the record button on time this time, but I forgot you need to hit it twice so you come in towards the end of the first song I played (Surachai). That happens way too much and it pisses me off to no end, I just hope it doesn’t make you even half as mad it makes me.

Lots of solo acoustic and black noise/metal, plus a cover of Hank Williams and me mistakenly thinking the Humbert & Rosenboom collab came out this year instead of 2013.

A Thick Mist (January 4, 2017)


 

Some of the mashups worked amazingly, like Lakshmi Shankar & the Bowles/Verrastro duo (which starts off so seamlessly I actually can’t determine when it started, somewhere around the 20 minute mark). Some fell a little flat, like Mick Barr and the Venezuelan folk music. It was all fun, though. Also, for some reason I was getting the song info for Lluvia off of Discogs and I was looking at a different record online than the one I was actually playing, so I say that I played “La Oscuridad Doth Dar La Inmortalidad” from Premonicion De Guerra but I wasn’t even playing that record. Oops. Chalk it up to me not knowing Spanish and that the info for Eternidad Solemne is all on the inner sleeve instead of the jacket which I didn’t have readily at hand.
