Swale-+-Blossom-1
Swale + Blossom at Mary Etherington
Inter-Dimensional Music, the Big Bend’s longest running New Age + Cosmic Metal radio program returns this Sunday, August 3 from 9-11pmon Marfa Public Radio
In the 9 o’clock hour we’ll be playing new music from friend and former Marfa-dweller Celia Hollander (aka $3.33) alongside gentle drones from Ashan plus a mysterious nugget of jingle-jangle psychedelic goodness by William Whichman. Our thanks to Matthew in Denver — New Age tape collector and friend of the show — for the hook up.
Things turn choogly from 10-11pm as cosmic metal riddims commence. This month we’re looking at the psychoactive ecological system seeded by the band Sleep, playing brand new music from the venerated Hasheeshians themselves, alongside the kindred mystical heaviness of Yob, Om and the Wackies Rhythm Force.
If you’re out here in Far West Texas tune in from 9-11p (CST) on the first Sunday of each month at KRTS 93.5 FM in Marfa, KRTP 91.7 FM in Alpine and KDKY 91.5 FM in Marathon. You can stream ID Music live at marfapublicradio.org
We are also available by computer at interdimensionalmusic.com and bandcamp.com/interdimensionalmusic.
Also! If you find yourself out here on the high desert grasslands, ID Music host Daniel Chamberlin’s Swale + Blossom installation is on view for the rest of August at Mary Etherington, 124 E. El Paso in Marfa, Texas. More info here.

ID-Music_Real-News2

The #1 New Age radio broadcast in the Big Bend of Far West Texas returns to the airwaves tonight from 9-11pm CST — that’s right now — with monsoon conjuring music from Valet, Aerial Jungle, Softest and J.D. Emmanuel. In the second hour we’ll be exploring the outer limits of “blackened New Age” with music from Agalloch and Ash Borer, the latter hot off their Marfa debut to a confused crowd at Padre’s last week.

This is happening now. If you’re out here in Far West Texas tune in from 9-11p (CST)  at KRTS 93.5 FM in Marfa, KRTP 91.7 FM in Alpine and KDKY 91.5 FM in Marathon. You can also stream the show live at marfapublicradio.org.

Inter-Dimensional Music Presents: A Blackened New Age

Cosmic metal is the yin to the New Age yang. Both are musics concerned with other worlds, with direct contemplation of mortality and open recognition that we dwell in a fallen realm. Matters of the material sphere are of less concern than an internalization of the ways in which darkness and light, north and south, sun and moon, stupor, enlightenment, endarkenment, sex and magick are undeniable drivers of the undulating trance that throbs throughout all consciousness. And a shared recognition that maximum volume will yield maximum results.

Transcendence and descendence are both expansions from a middling plane of existence.

In the interest of drawing attention to the occult spiritual continuum between these schools of thought — and in some cases, finding ground with fellow travelers in heavy electronic music — Inter-Dimensional Music offers the following catalog of artists who fall within our purposely abstract terminology, thus …

Inter-Dimensional Music for June 1, 2014

ID Music June 2014

Inter-Dimensional Music returns to the shimmering Far West Texas airwaves tonight, bringing heat stroke-averse visions from across the kosmiche spectrum.

Our summer doom mantra mix includes some heavy contemplative music from Ben Frost, Sunn O))) & Ulver, and Leyland Kirby. A high altitude chill descends as the sun fades and bats swoop through the twilight: Look for XYR, M. Geddes Gengras and Laraaji in the second hour.
Tune in from 9-11pm (cst) at 93.5 FM here in the Big Bend, or worldwide at marfapublicradio.org.
Inter-Dimensional Music for June 1, 2014

New Stag Hare Drones

Friend of the show Stag Hare is in the resource-gathering phase for a new project that includes a vinyl version of his beat-heavy Angel Tech album and the launch of his DJRONA label. Backers get Angel Tech LP suitable for forest yurt soundtracking, along with a cassette of unreleased drones. Given our man’s track record – we’ve been smitten since coming across Ahspen years ago -– we can expect more transportative wilderness psychedelia on its way.

Full discography available on Bandcamp, and all the fundraising details are on Kickstarter.

ID Music on Marfa Public Radio Tonight!

ID Music May 2014 Flyer-A

The #1 New Age Radio program in Far West Texas returns after a month of exploring desert blooms and Mexican crystal specimens with a fresh broadcast of mellow tunes TONIGHT from 9-11pm (CST) on Marfa Public Radio.

Tune in at 93.5 FM here in the Big Bend, or worldwide at marfapublicradio.org.

We’ll be playing long long long songs about flowers, rainbows and inner flight, featuring music from friends and fellow travelers including Fennesz, Nicki Scully feat Jerry Garcia, Matthewdavid & Diva, and Peasants.

We’re particularly excited for the ID Music debut of William Tyler covering Michael Rother, which is basically the spirit of the last four years of our broadcasts distilled into seven blissful minutes of rusticated kosmiche grooving. Also, Bardo Pond doing Eno (h!f!s!).

Playlist (and possible streaming archive) to come following the conclusion of the program.

Arp meets ID Music for a TX-Size New Age Showdown

ID Music:Real News

Inter-Dimensional Music is back on the Marfa Public Radio airwaves Sunday from 9-11pm (CST). That’s tonight!

We’ll start off with conversation + a selection of proto-New Age vibes from Alexis Georgopolous of Arp. The full configuration of Arp performs here in Marfa as part of Ballroom Marfa and Mexican Summer’s free festival next Saturday, March 8, at El Cosmico. Quilt, No Joy, Weyes Blood and Connan Mockasin too. More on that at Ballroom Marfa.

Second hour is yours truly rolling through a set of rusticated Aquarian visions inspired in part by hearing that MV & EE cover of “Shotgun Willie” that’s being passed around. Puff puff give!

Also! ID Music is co-presenting the New Bums show coming up on March 11 at the Marfa Book Co., so we’ll likely get into some old bum music from Skygreen Leopards and Six Organs of Admittance.

We’ll see you on-air tonight at 93.5FM or marfapublicradio.org, and online whenever at interdimensionalmusic.com. We’ll post up some archived shows someday …

P.S. if you’re in Marfa and want to take a look at the South Plateau Adobe Ruin squat installation that’s happening next door to my house, drop me a line and we’ll connect.

P.P.S. Our pals at Arthur Magazine are in the final hours of a massive once-in-a-lifetime closeout sale, including the ID Music “Backcountry Chillout” mixtape. CHECK OUT THESE DEALS!
