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.

Surgery 156

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!
