Beats mismatched. New mystic moods. The International Style. Pressed and dressed. Queasy listening. New ways to fail. More is more. Backroom room tones.

Hey. Folks, actually checking in and listening this time, though I'll need to check the archives in the future as per usual to catch the beginning portion of the set. JD did you get my email from yesterday? I sent it to your name without punctuation at gmail dot com. Irrc that's your address , and right?

Hey @Coela!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07am mariano:

Hi Jesse. I'm good, thanks, just finishing up some work then gonna crash. Thanks for the soundtrack, Pole.

Ignatatus: still subverting the written word, I see. How you been? And top of the wee hours to you, coela.
Avatar 4:09am Jesse Dorris:

Hey @Sylvia, it was cool, right? Yma Sumac and Sade and Jello Biafra...
Avatar 4:10am Sylvia (France-NYC):

yes it was @Jesse! some familiar sounds and others to discover, what more could we need
Avatar 4:10am Sylvia (France-NYC):

this is so good, I know almost nothing about Harold Budd
Avatar 4:12am cocoon:

rest in peace harold budd, a beautiful soul ♡
Avatar 4:13am Jesse Dorris:

Hope this sparks you then @Sylvia. He's best known for these sort of cavernous echoing piano situations but putting this together I found so many other facets...his music has been so important to me over the years. It's such a loss, but the records remain
Avatar 4:13am Jesse Dorris:

Seconded, @cocoon

@Pole thank you so much for the mix! That Sade version is a real beaut!

I'd never heard this album with Bill Nelson and FB, makes me wonder what would have happened if he did more beat-oriented work....

Yeah, buy my damn album !
Avatar 4:44am Jesse Dorris:

Haha yes listen to @Pole!
Avatar 4:46am Sylvia (France-NYC):

Harold Budd, prolific guy
Avatar 4:49am Jesse Dorris:

He put out what seemed like at least one record a year for most of the 90s/00s/10s. Just released another collaboration with Robin Guthrie a few weeks ago!

And here's a track from that
Avatar 5:01am cocoon:

great show jesse :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57am PaulRobeson1920:

No human being can ever be lost..

“Nothing can truly be taken from us. There is nothing to lose. Inner peace begins when we stop saying of things, “I have lost it” and instead say, “It has been returned to where it came from.” Have your children died? They are returned to where they came from. Has your mate died? Your mate is returned to where he or she came from. Have your possessions and property been taken from you? They too have been returned to where they came from.”
