We start with ‘Younger’ by The New Old Men, a sketch of two old friends sitting together on a train, surrounded by shimmering ambiances.

Next is the charming rustic calm of the almost entirely acoustic instrumental ‘Cansada’ by Kitchen Sink.  You can also watch the video on YouTube.

This is followed by the epic rock of The Sword and the Laser’ by The Clive Royal Project and The New Old Men.  Clive Royal, inspired by the online science fiction and fantasy bookclub Sword and Laser, wrote his Sword and Laser song and then basically open-sourced it on his website – inviting others to download it, remix it, and add to it.  So The New Old Men did just that, adding guitar, drum loops, and keyboards around Clive’s vocals to create their own version of this mini-epic.

Next is a solo piece by Karl Eifrig called  ‘The Evening Bite’, an ambient instrumental that shifts through various beguiling sounds.  Karl is also known as ‘Eddie P.’, the collaborator with J.J. Sonick in the bands The New Old Men and Kitchen Sink.

Then we stomp along with ‘Fine as Wine’ by the lo-fi indie rock band Pookie.

‘She Brings the Rain’ by Giligadi off the Fissures in the Faithful album follows – a cover of the mellow, jazzy song of the same title by the legendary krautrock band Can.

Then we pause for a News report from SuBBrilliant News, covering Iranian protesters interaction with Twitter, the United States use of torture (against metaphors), and more.

Next we hear the fiery instrumental ‘Holes in Your Paper Stomach’ off the album The Noise Under the Eyelid by The Cat’s Orchestra, which is the project of Ukrainian composer/performer Nicolay Sirov.

Then we hear the grooving intergalactic improv of Avjit in their saxophone-trombone-bass instrumental ‘Solar Sail’.

And we finish with the ambient instrumental ‘The Bowls’ which finds Charlie Naked exploring a variety of resonant sounds made with Tibetan singing bowls.

Hope you enjoyed podcast number five, and see you next month!
