15th Anniversary Podcast
This week we will celebrate our Crystal or 15th anniversary of podcasting independent Downtempo Music and Artists. Looking back I am happy to report most continue to make music or have a presence on the web. We will hear from six artists from our freshman year who, 15 years later, are still going strong.
The Luminescence of Candles
This week we’ll look at the luminescence of candles, of wax and tallow. Mostly used in celebrations and ceriemonies these days, candles brought light to the darkness
for early lives constrained by the rising and setting of the sun. It meant extra hours beyond daily work to gather, socialize and create. Candles lit the way and we followed.
This week we will focus on mind wandering. When your attention drifts from the task at hand. Most of us feel this mild disassociation routinely. When you feel a million miles away. While it can be distracting daydreaming can lead to more creativity through decoupling and self reflection. We will hear six tracks that exhibit some of this dreamlike quality including Red Wine Riots, Aphilas, Dreza, Eva Schlegel, Azoora and Just Banks.
This week we will look at personal correspondence. Any private communication revealing
private thoughts usually between just two people. It is often easier to put your true
feelings down on paper. Shared thoughts of devotional love. Despair and hope of lovers on
the edge. The loyalty of close friends and letters written with no intention of ever being
Before and After
This week, we will look at change beyond the tipping point. The “no going back.” Before and After. How we accept and adapt to our new situation will take every effort. Embracing a new future takes courage and a sense of practicality. Seeing it as a new morning requires faith and adaptability.
This week it is Pastoral Beats. Warm gentle This week it’s Pastoral Beats. Warm gentle Electronica that evokes memories of carefree and less stressful times. It is music of comfort and consolation led by deceptively simple melodies over increasingly intricate rhythms. The arty side of chill-out where each has their own unique style of swing.
In my heart from the day I discovered it
Many many years ago I stumbled upon this podcast, when podcast was something quite new to me and to the world. I’m very glad that I can browse Nye’s complete legacy here. Golden, golden.
2nd Coolest podcast you've never heard of
I'm also a long time listener. Where they find these mind blowing songs is beyond me. Yes. Headphones are recommended.
This is a most wonderful podcast
Can’t believe there are so few ratings. I’ve been listening to Jim Nye for years, and was saddened when he had to take a break for illness. Now he’s back and the music is a perfectly curated as ever! Fantastic!
