The Show: Apocalypso

We’re not ones for original thoughts and ideas. Never have been, probably never will. Hence us taking the easy way out today and celebrating the Mayan apocalypse with an end of the world flavour to the show. Still no Phil Collins though.

Apocalypso 30 Minute Mix

Uneasy listening

You are listening to
WARNING: You are listening to is quite addictive.

Due to work commitments (The Herb Whisperer) and general faineancy (Fraserhead) there was no action packed instalment of The Joint on RDU yesterday.

If you need some way of filling this void in your life please allow us to recommend some uneasy listening to get you through today, Christmas, and the New Year.

You are listening to combines real time police and emergency services scanner audio from various US cities with ambient and drone tracks from Soundcloud. More comforting and soothing than voyeuristic it’s the brainchild of Eric Eberhardt (read the IndieShuffle interview here). For me it’s the aural equivalent of a movie scene showing the city at night from a helicopter. Very nice to fall asleep to, whether in a sunny backyard or late at night in bed.

And if that’s right up your alley my workmate Tim recommends the following SomaFM channels:

  • SF 10-33 – Ambient music mixed with the sounds of San Francisco public safety radio traffic.
  • Mission Control – Celebrating NASA and space explorers everywhere. A mix of ambient and experimental music mixed with the historical sounds of the space program.

The Show: Italians know their Panini

Italian glam rock revivalists Giuda and their 70’s Panini football sticker references feature on the show today.

A music video set in a decrepit sport ground puts us in mind of The Fall with their promo for “Kicker Conspiracy”, filmed at Burnley’s ground, Turf Moor, in the early 80’s.

And as mentioned at the end of the show, you should never forget about Dre because apparently Dr Dre is 2012′s highest paid musician.
