Yes, there’s a place where musicians instinctively flock like the Salmon of Capistrano. Well the quote goes something like that; obviously off quite a bit, but fits the random theme of the show. Just listen through here and it may suddenly appear when you hear the song about Colorado, or maybe it was the one about California.
Lots of interesting tracks abound today. We’ve got a possible aborist/experimental musician from Burbank who plays a living tree as an instrument as well as a live introduction from my trip to the The Roxy Theater in Los Angeles to see local musician Chance perform. There’s bagpipe music leading into tracks about towns in the Southern California desert, Ennio Morricone influenced pop-folk and some mutinous piratical pub-stomping rock from up the coast in Santa Barbara. We even managed to find a band that recorded their album in San Pedro to tell a tale about a sad crane operator from the Ports of LA, with a brief introduction to the town from one of my liquored up friends who speaks of Bukowski and commerce.
Please enjoy today’s mixtape, so to speak.
