Counting on Downstairs // Carleton

• May 21st, 2016

carleton(72)

Later this summer Surgery Radio will launch its sister label Patient Records to focus on experimental music both local to New Brunswick, Canada, but also hopefully some of our favourite worldwide artists.

Leading up to the official launch we are beta-testing the format with a new release from my sound-making alter-ego, Counting on Downstairs.  Carleton is available as both a limited edition CD-R and digital release over on Bandcamp. Hope you enjoy the sounds. And stay tuned for more label news over the summer.

So I'm trying to be more diligent this summer than last year which saw a four month gap in posting. My plan is to do at the very least one episode per month May through August, and if at all possible keep to the two-per-month schedule. I'll be posting news on one of my competing distractions over the weekend, so stay tuned. But for THIS EPISODE I put together an off-the-cuff mix of shoegaze related music that spans a couple of decades and a variety of approaches. I didn't have time to get all my links in a row this time around, but I recommend you check out all these artists, 'cos they're awesome (obviously). And so are you guys. Thanks!

Surgery 150

• January 14th, 2016

150

The plan for episode 150 was already to go back into my collection and do a kind of "unheard greatest hits" from some of my favourite albums from years of doing the podcast. But with David Bowie's passing a few days ago it seemed necessary to pay tribute... primarily because if I hadn't heard Scary Monsters when I was 13 or 14 this podcast might be a mix of tracks by Bob Seger, Jimmy Buffett, and The Eagles. No joking! I'm pretty sure you can draw a straight line between my listening from that moment through until now, represented in the tracks from the mix below. Some of the artists are directly related to Bowie, some definitely influenced by him, the rest share a textural kinship that rings true to my ears. So, enjoy this tribute, hopefully, and if you note there is no halfway title/time stamp... the flow seemed to suggest that it be dropped for this episode.

Thanks.
