The Listening Club - 15 March 2015

Hola, amigos!

@JimMcCauley here again, and it'll have to be a quick one as we have friends turning up in about half an hour and I want to get this done before they arrive. In brief: it's bloody cold and I managed to stab myself in the finger with a screwdriver yesterday while putting a new number up on the house. Exciting!

Last week saw @wojsvenwoj at the decks, with Amy X Neuburg's The Secret Language of Subways causing just the right mix of confusion and delight. Thanks to Woj for the pick, and for flipping the frisbee right in @saucer's face. And so without any further ado:

"Hello! Is this thing on? 

"(Only my second time up here...  please bear with me.)

"So, this evening's pick is a bit, uh, *different*, even among the other oddities in my music collection. In fact, I'd say it straddles the line between crass novelty and the brave avant-garde...  and by "straddles the line" I mean it injured its testicles in the process. (That's right. It was not even wearing pants.)

"Now, please don't ruin your enjoyment by googling, but this apparently factual(?) bit was written about the guy who (along with various surprise guests) created tonight's album: "His father was an IT specialist before becoming a psychic. His mother was a paralegal at the North Carolina Patent and Trademark Office."

"Anyhoo, this evening you won't be hearing SO MUCH OTHER GOOD BUT RELATIVELY NORMAL music that I auditioned, all to allow you to hear this, which was, in truth, one of my favorite albums of 2014. I hope you enjoy!"

Tidy. Direct download is here (link at the top of the page), and the Mixcloud's embedded below (@saucer reports that even though he uploaded it, it's chucking some warning about not playing in his country, so give it a quick test if you're worried about it, and click on the link underneath it if you want to go to the actual page).

See you at 8PM!
