    Ep. 31 – Last Patios

    The lounge chair's in the right place. Most of the umbrella's still standing. It's everything else that's gone.

Join me for our last few sips of wine cooler ever, at the last party anyone will attend, here on the last patios anywhere.

    Ep. 28 – Thai Town

    Ep. 28 – Thai Town

    Enjoy a mix of vintage Luk Thang 45s, ripped from a stack of singles brought over from Thailand by our cousin and good friend. Here's the best hour of material. I try to provide an authentic rendering of each disc, while avoiding the harsher surface noise, clicks, and scratches from the vinyl. Information about some of these Luk Thang picks is available online, but many remain mysterious. My partially reconstructed tracklist has tunes by Sangsuree Rungroj, Sayan Sanya, Winai Bundarak, and Chaloemphon Hit Donchai, but we know up to ten other unknown artists are featured. Who, for instance, is behind the cover of Serge Gainsbourg's "J'taime Moi Non Plus"? Whatever the answer, dip into the retro vibe of Thai Town, the first of four new episodes to be released over upcoming weeks tracing the varying strains of sound among international musics. Tracklist: Sangsuree Rungroj - Mixed, Sayan Sanya - Unknown, Sayan Sanya - Some Old Love, Sayan Sanya - Do Not Fall For The Rumor, Sayan Sanya - Borderman, Unknown Artist - J'taime Moi Non Plus, Chaloemphon Hit Donchai - Past Love Buddhist Lent Day, or Past Love Rainy Season, Chaloemphon Hit Donchai - Won Mae Engagement Girl, Winai Bandurak - Mexican Sunflower, or Tree Marigold

    Ep. 27 – Home Furnishing

    House music for the nest: These selections of micro, minimal, lo-fi, glitch, ambient and deep house hang together like insulating drapes -- subtle head music heaving and pulsing in the stillness of a calm room, with steady, four-on-the-floor background beats and tightly knit bass lines that like to lead the groove. Synth pads and vocal samples line the space like wallpaper. Zone out and enjoy. Tracklist: Afterhours - Defragment #2, Body-San - One Million Brazillion Dollars, Stimming - No. 17, Ishmael - No Chaser, Letherette - Without You, Farben and James Din A4 - Please Excuse My Face, Jan Jelinek - They, Them, Jetone - Octan, Rod Modell - Syria, Martin Schulte - City Night, Thomas Fehlmann - Atlas 2, Elka - BBX1999, You're Me - Oot Re Mi, Perfume Advert - Auspice, Anders Ilar - Gramineous Glow, Martin Buttrich - Stop Motion, Ricardo Villalobos - Hireklon, Farben - Silikon, Nosaj Thing - NR2, Moodymann - Why Do U Feel, Gold Panda - Mediaevil, Francesco Tristano - Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence
