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!

MOZOMEDIA MUSIC PODCAST – Ep 4

For May our DJ-in-orbit serves you a new song from J.J. Sonick, rocking consumerism from The New Old Men, languorous lust from White Mahatma and much more, as well as late-breaking stories from SubBrilliant News.

Take a listen:

First we hear ‘Never Get Clean’ by J.J. Sonick, an indie rock confessional with just a pinch of gospel in the chorus.

Next up is ‘The Suffocating Rubber Clown Suit of Negativity’ by G:Nome – piano and ambient atmospherics surrounding samples of David Lynch talking about his experiences with transcendental meditation.

Then we hear ‘I’m Going Shopping’, a rocking and absurd taunt made by The New Old Men.

This is followed by ‘Heat Alpert’, an appropriately toe-tapping Herb Alpert-esque instrumental by J.J. Sonick, for the skit Heat by the comedy group Come On, Scientists!.

Next is the smoldering, post-coital, off-kilter acoustic indie pop of ‘Wreckage of the Hudson’ by White Mahatma.

Then we hear the slightly psychedelicized gypsy instrumental ‘A Trip to Romany’, complete with rainstorm sounds, from The High Country Low Lifes.

SuBBrilliant News reports on GM’s hybrid car with horse and more.

The Food and Drug Administration Orchestra gives us an important lesson in the acoustic ditty ‘Dig a Little Hole’.

Biota is a band beloved by J.J. Sonick and Eddie P. for combining ambient and experimental sounds with beguiling song structures, so in the Kitchen Sink instrumental ‘Political Song for Biota to Sing’ they pay tribute to Biota with the music, and give a bonus fond nod to the Minutemen with the title.

Finally, we survey a portion of the epic, constantly shifting ambient instrumental ‘Oceans of Shattered Glass’ by Charlie Naked, off the album of the same name.
