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.
New work from Daniel Chamberlin
124 E. El Paso / Marfa / Texas
Opening July 4, 2014
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 …
A Blackened New Age
Nurse With Wound
Leyland Kirby (aka V/VM, The Caretaker, et al)
Wino (Obsessed, St. Vitus, Hidden Hand, Spirit Carvan)
Wolves in The Throne Room
Acid Mothers Temple
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.
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.
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.
