Tune in to KRTS, Marfa Public Radio this Sunday night from 9-11p (CST) for a very special Inter-Dimensional Music featuring an hour of fresh tunes from Marfa-based electronic musician Celia Hollander, aka $3.33.

Plenty of Texas heads are still ringing from her recent psychedelic desert R&B AV collages in Marfa and Austin, opening for William Tyler and Demdike Stare, respectively; regular ID Music listeners will recognize some of her more ethereal compositions from past shows.

Celia will be joining ID Music host Daniel Chamberlin from 9-10pm. Chamberlin plugs his computer into the soundboard from 10-11p, delivering the usual mellow set of kosmiche slop, maybe some Terry Riley or something from the Holter/Barwick-dominated genre of angelic slow jams.

Listen at 93.5FM if you’re out here in the Big Bend, otherwise point your computer at marfapublicradio.org for the live stream.

Chambo’s 2012 Heavy Rotations

ID Music Holiday Greetings

Chambo’s Top ID Music Jams from 2012, in alphabetical order:


Actress – R.I.P. 

As we wrote once before … “Less suffocated techno. More shiny fractal ambience. “Shadow from Tartarus” sounds like ice tinkling off the conning tower of Porter Ricks‘ submarine after surfacing in the sparkling glare of Arctic sunlight.”


Anywhere – Anywhere

Mike Watt, Cedric Bixler-Zavala and a dude we’d never heard of from the awesomely named “Liquid Indian” got together for these totally mellow Sandy Bull-inspired astral jams and nobody really said much about it, but it’s amazing.

Ancient Forever

Ashan – Ancient Forever

Sits next to Stag Hare’s Spirit Canoes, Deep Magic’s Solar Meditations, White Rainbow’s New Clouds and Thoughts on Air’s Mallo Yallo as a stone classic of contemporary New Age. Flutes, guitars and all kinds of jingle-jangling old growth vibes.

ID Music July 2012 Playlist

Thanks to everyone who joined us for last night’s show: the broke-nose landscrapers in the Faubourg Marigny of New Orleans, the art collectors of Spanish Andalucia, the furniture-crafters in Red Hook, the electricians of Brooklyn, the Chuck UK family in Mount Washington, the audio designers of Lincoln Square, the salon shamans of Paris, the Greenfriars of Joshua Tree, the stargazers at McDonald Observatory, the outer-limits oilfielders of the Permian Basin and the true heads keeping it topless in the Hamptons.

And we’ve got nothing but love for the OGs out here in occupied Northern Mexico, our neighbors in Terlingua, Ojinaga, Presidio, Fort Davis, Alpine, El Paso, any long-haulers who had their ears on riding the 10, the 90, the 17 or the 67; and of course ID Music’s immediate family here in the bohemian enclave of Marfa.

Here’s what we listened to. Links go to downloads or further listening opportunities. If you were digging the gnawa jams from Mahmoud Guinia, we recommend visiting the first rate audioblog Moroccan Tape Stash at your earliest convenience.

We’re live on KRTS again on Sunday, August 5 from 9-11p (CST).
