In this week's show, DJ Andy Bargerstock will take us on another journey through charming melodies and ethereal soundscapes. Snakefarm's "Songs from My Funeral" will be the featured CD of the evening. This duo consisting of Anna Domino and Michel Delory transform traditional folk songs into a downtempo, electro-acoustic sound that is "reminiscent of a collision among so-called acid-jazz, rave and film noire." (George Graham, WVIA-FM).
Yet, DJ Andy has more in store for you from his cavern of obscure music. For those longing for the psychedelic era, you will enjoy the 9-minute "Unfolding" track from the 2002 CD, "Inside the Acid Temple" by Liquid Sound Company. This CD is already selling at a premium on the used copy market. Their music is described as "a mindblowing mixture of psych, space rock, West Coast sounds, Middle Eastern scales, spaced lyrics and cosmic vibes." (www.psychedelic-music.de) Oh, yes! This does sound like Fringe Toast material.
We will also hear from Ry Cooder who is ranked at #8 Best Guitarist in the World by Rolling Stone Magazine. Cooder's slide guitar will move us through his interpretation of Paris, Texas (film soundtrack, 1984).
Additional musical guests include John Hiatt, Cowboy Junkies, Federico Aubele, Opera to Relax, Zingaia, Cat Power, Rara Avis and if time permits OTT with their 8-minute electronic track, Smoked Glass and Chrome. By then, you should be feeling crispy around the edges.
