Melodica 24 September 2012

24th September 2012 Comments Off , ,

Chris Coco’s weekly radio broadcast. An eclectic selection of brilliant new music starting with house and moving on to electronica, downtempo, acoustic and all sorts of other styles loosely connected to dance and electronic music. Let tastemaker Chris Coco guide you through his selection of the week’s best new music. Adult Oriented Rock, 80s disco and 70s synth pop are not always quite what they seem, not when they are placed in the grubby hands of Four Tet, Tensnake, Mojo Filter and Kon & The Gang. They’re all here mangling the classic, plus Toro Y Moi, Seahawks, Grizzly Bear, The XX and, oh, never forget the Gaslamp Killer. [setlist] 1 The Gaslamp Killer – Breakthrough Intro (excerpt) – Brainfeeder 2 Les Sins (Toro Y Moi) – Fetch – Jiaolong 3 Aashton & Swift – Holy House – Bodywork Music 4 Unknown Artist – I Hate Hate (Rodsteen & Soulshak) – Digital File 5 Kon & The Gang – Get It Together – Basic Fingers 6 Sugardaddy – How Long (Tensnake Vocal Remix) – Late Night Tales THAT FUZZY FEELING (TUNE OF THE WEEK) 7 Kasket – Mia – Apollo 8 The XX – Our Song – XL STRINGS, WOOD AND A BOX OF AIR 9 Grizzly Bear – Gun-shy – Warp 10 The Gaslamp Killer – Apparitions (with Gonjasufi) – Brainfeeder 11 Seahawks – Oceans Of Space – Ocean Moon 12 Mojo Filter – Lost In Thought (Mojo Filter Omnipotent Dub) – AOR Disco 13 Neneh Cherry & The Thing – Dream Baby Dream (Four Tet Remix) – Smalltown Supersound

Auto-no-me

When I run up the hill and the hill defeats me I thank the hill for being there, so hard and long and strong. When I am in SihlCity I like to walk under the freeway. I seek out the shadows, so long and strong on this September evening. I see a list of things that people want to do before they die. The most striking says: die before my daughter. It’s so simple and direct and beautiful. On the hill at the castle there is a giant radio made out of cardboard. The sky is clear and blue so for now our fragile dreams are safe inside the cardboard box. When I sit on benches in the sun on the edge of things I always wonder what I am doing in such a lonely place. But really it is not lonely. I am here and I like it. So simple and direct and beautiful.

CC at International Radio Festival

This is a special live show, the last broadcast from this year’s International Radio Festival in Zurich. It features the usual array of Melodica music plus some encounters with radio people gathered there for the occasion. I talk to the Fokn Bois about Uncle Obama’s Banana and get a henna tattoo inbetween tracks, among other things. Chris Coco’s Melodica London UK IRF 2012 by International Radio Festival on Mixcloud
