“Marty! You’ve got to come back with me…back to the future!” We’re taking an odd detour for this week’s podcast, with one of my pretend radio station shows. If I ever did have a chance to become a radio DJ, this would be my music of choice, dirtyfied of course. I’ve noticed on the rare occasions that I have the regular radio on, some channels for example, easy listening, would have music from the last 30 to 40 years mixed in with some newer stuff (compared to stations that only play music of certain eras). My original concept was to mix and match “ancient” electronica 😛 with its more current incarnations…the Johnny Jewels, Kavinskys, Ladytrons with the older “waves” although this podcast leaned heavier towards the more post-punk, early electronic alternative spectrum. Next time I make one of these will have more Synth-Pop and even Italo included.

Children of the Wave:

01. Inga Copeland – Trample
02. Cold Cave – Heavenly Metals
03. Deux – Game & Performance
04. Gary Allen – Oops, It’s An Accident
05. A.R.E. Weapons – Mr. Creature
06. A Sudden Way – Jane’s Third Party
07. John Maus – No Title (Molly)
08. Kebab – Life It’s A Joke
09. OTO – Anyway
10. Brotman & Short – Eastlands
11. Das Kabinette – The Cabinet
12. Rational Youth – Saturdays in Silesia (12″ mix)
13. Lower Dens – Brains (Trentmoller Remix)
14. Jozif feat. Zeska – Musak (Jozif’s MOG Version)
15. Cosmetics – Black Leather Gloves
16. Parallels – Dry Blood

Bits, Blips & Chimes…a dirty-fied, post-holiday thingy for the ears. It sounds seasonal for a chunk of it’s running time, before veering towards a different context as it nears the end. We are non-traditional here.

Minami Ozaki – Wanwa Opening Theme
Zooey Deschanel & Will Ferrell (from Elf) – Baby It’s Cold Outside

01. Porn Sword Tobacco – Welcome / Sjöbodarna Står Tomma Över Jul

15. BT feat Jes – Every Other Way (Hammock Remix)
16. Sigur Rós – Hljómalind

I was going to make a year end / new year mix, but most of my ideas sound a bit anti-climactic at the moment…so Sessions will be going on a short hiatus and be back by February(?). Stay Dirty!

“I call this sad step… or, the beat’s so lonely” Another show that starts with zero beats and ends on a different note. It’s indie, dreamgaze with hints of dubstep for a cloudy day. Gray is my favorite color. Your smudged black eyeliner from your tears is beauty.

The Promises of Dreams Broken:

01. JJ – You Don’t Know How Much It Would Hurt Me If You Said That You Were In Love With Me
02. Balam Acab – Oh Why
03. Mathieu Santos – Silly Thoughts (Balam Acab Remix)
04. How To Dress Well – Suicide Dream 2 (Holy Other Remix)

We have a mixed bag of different things: indie, alternative, shoegaze/new wave, ambient, some breakbeat, glitchy electronica, dubstep, half step, blippy stuff and trip hop. This show is made up of two 40 minute sets. They both start in similar fashion but veer into slightly different directions by the end. The first 20 minutes is mostly instrumental (i had an idea of making a Lullabies for Robotic Babies kind of mix) but the rest is a lot more song based. The second set was originally going to be my first podcast here on dirtyradio but it was a bit short (was posted in “craft” in the dirty forums last year).

Iconastasia, Episode #3: ‘one must look with the heart’.

“What is essential is invisible to the eye,” the little prince repeated, so that he would be sure to remember.

An experient in form – a mix based on seminal piece of children’s literature, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, this episode of Iconastasia takes the usual mix of laidback ambience, dreamy indie, and hazy electronics, and mixes it up with readings from de Saint-Exupery’s delightfully whimsical tale of a young prince who goes adventuring across the expanses of the universe, and discovers what love is.

01. Portishead – Wandering Star
02. The Panics – Get Us Home
03. Digitonal – A Lighter Touch
04. Goldfrapp – Gone to Earth
05. Death Cab for Cutie – Transatlanticism
06. DJ Shadow – Lost and Found (Live! In Tune and On Time)
07. TV on the Radio – Love Dog
08. Slowdive – Crazy For You
09. Underworld – You Do Scribble (Live in Tokyo)
10. Florence and the Machine – Cosmic Love

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this episode – did it work for you? Let me know. And, as always, Iconastasia is on Facebook – become a fan for updates and extras.
