Melting Pot

Back to all vinyl at the end of the month (you might note at the very beginning that somebody forgot to check if the turntable was at the proper speed, thankfully, very few issues other than that this week after last week’s CD player rebellion), with a decidedly summery feel to this one, beginning with Love’s “The Good Humor Man He Sees Everything Like This,” and also Temptation’s “It’s Summer,” and “Summer of Love” from the Bay Area’s Sandwitches. All over the place elsewhere, as is the case with these vinyl freeform shows. Quite a bit of newer tracks, a couple from LA label KuDeTa, who have released Jovenes y Sexys Bruno EP on vinyl, also got a chance to play “Journeyman” from Amon Tobin, CD Players be damned! Particularly fond of that set, moving from Tobin to a 1940s track that was a throwaway 45, just used as packing, but is really quite lovely, though also strangely sinister. Enjoy the show, next week it’s the “Best So Far of 2011″!!!
