moon duo – mazes – ( sacred bones )

peaking lights – 936 – ( not not fun )

hauschka & hildur gudnadottir – pan tone – ( sonic pieces )

cave – neverendless – ( drag city )

tim hecker – dropped pianos – ( kranky )

caretaker – an empty bliss beyond this world – ( history always favors the winners )

bill callahan – apocalypse – ( drag city )

group doueh – zayna jumma – ( sublime frequencies )

 

 

i don’t really feel like waxing on about the years releases, or anything else for that matter……..just saw a real bummer of a movie, and don’t want to think too much about anything right now…..so here’s the playlist from the show.     hope everyone had a good holiday.

there you have it, my best of 2011 show.    somehow i forgot to play anything by the caretaker even though it ended up on my top 10 list.    other things i didn’t get to on the show include:

……and both the grouper lp’s from this year, self released simultaneously, title is A / A alien observer & dream loss

 

 

 

just not enough time in one show to highlight the best releases from this year………and i suppose that’s a good thing.

 

 

 

 

keep listening.

as mentioned during this show, i’ve been in a rut as far as music is concerned……kind of burnt out on it lately.   at least until i started this show anyway…..somehow in selecting tracks to play my faith was restored, i suspect from the healing powers of the wedding present, but it could have been any one of these tracks.    tune in to the five & dime show next week when i make a surprise visit to andy’s installment to interview my good friend & local musician jon mueller about a show happening the following night.   it will be my first on air interview, i apologize in advance for how bad it may be.
