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 – 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.

Chambo, Hollander and the rest of the ID Music team broadcast the first transmission of the post-Mayan Apocalypse epoch last night from the KRTS studios here in Marfa, Texas. Hollander got things off to a mellow start with in-demand Arica tunes and some welcome guided-meditation.

Here’s what Chambo played, with links to downloads or streams of the tunes.

Inter-Dimensional Music for 6 January 2013

New M. Geddes Gengras music

The last time we saw M. Geddes Gengras he was eating sweet potato hash in our kitchen here in Marfa with Matthewdavid, Sun Araw Band, Rene Hell and the rest of the Tonalism crew. We were trying to remember why we got kicked out of that yurt the night before … was it because we were bumping Juicy J mixtapes too loud, or something more scandalous? All we know for sure is the beer was gone by dawn.

Ged has a new 3-cassette release on 905 Tapes. Essential galaxy-melting modular synth listening. Get it here.
