This week's first set begins with an epic, Amon Düül II-inspired folk-rock freakout from neo-Krautrockers Datashock, continues with the incredible, Molam-influenced new single from GOAT, and then wraps up with a two-song mini-suite of synth-heavy psychedelic post-rock from Rickard Jäverling (I culled the two most "for the heads" type tracks on the album - the rest isn't quite as spaced-out, but still enjoyable, if you're into, say, Tortoise circa the albums Millions Now Living... or TNT.)
The middle set continues with a long, Hawkwind-y blowout from prolific Swedish/Danish rock collective Øresund Space Collective (the slash through the "Ø" means "not pronouncable by non-Scandinavians"), Ex Canix, with another Amon Düül II (or maybe International Harvester, since they're also Swedish) style folk-rock jam, and ends with a cut from the most recent album by Circle side-project Pharaoh Overlord.
The final set begins with a brand new track from Fourth World pioneer Jon Hassell, returning with his first new album in a dozen years, presumably prompted by the inexplicable but welcome renewal of interest in what used to be called, disparagingly, either "new age" or "world" music in the 1980s. It continues with more of the bleepy-bloopy style music that I always like to end the show with, including Monopoly Child Star Searchers (probably one of my favorite word-salad type names), Jimi Tenor (with a Sun Ra-inspired jazzy singalong), Manos Tsangaris, and Nadine Byrne.
