On my show this month:
In prior years, I've often framed this month's synopsis in the whole "back-to-school" schtick appropriate for this time of year. However, with the advance of Athens Popfest and my first trip to Knoxville (for another gig, of course - go on, guess who) looming on my ledger this August, the old frame seemed inadequate. Indeed, any frame won't capture this exact frame of mind, which is - where? Maybe stuck somewhere in the middle of Dennis Callaci's sprawling tone poem, trying to discern the environs; or maybe on the sidelines of the dance floor, watching Moon King and Annie Hart work their magic. Or maybe I'm down in the trenches with Priests and Dasher, hiding from hostile forces. No, no, not that. Well, am I floating in the clouds with Frankie Rose or (Sandy) Alex G? Or, no, higher - could I be up in the stars with Le Fruit Vert and Cathode Ray Eyes? No, definitely not. This real state I'm in, I'd place it between the blunt force of Deafcult and the humble ramblings of CHUCK - that is, in an abstract killing spree, but way too self-conscious to feel any pride from the conquest.
(Also featured in this episode of "Lee's Existential Crisis": back room curios from Melvins and Graham Dunning, an 8-minute odyssey of percussion with the Secret Drum Band, and highlights from the homebase from Hand Sand Hands and Small Reactions.)

For 20 odd years, my musical horizons were narrow. AOR stations, concert band, my mom’s old cassette collection, and Dizzy Gillespie rounded out the borders. ‘Twas only in the latter half of college that I stumbled onto the side streets and back alleys of the soundscape, through the humble vehicle of online radio stations. Except, where many folks may have been content to chug-a-lug on the tailored selection, I devoured pages and pages of biographies and album reviews, kept running lists, and bought shoeboxes full of CDs (especially in Wales).
All this scholarly education inevitably culminated in a) the discovery of Dandelion Radio, which for one lonely summer and one miserably lonely year was a shimmery oasis, and b) the spontaneous urge to write and spread the good word about the wondrous new things I was hearing. And imagine – folks in the last.fm community emerged from the shadows and sent me music! Me! Music! How bizarre! The writing habit grew, and by the tail end of 2012 I was fleshing out a blog dubbed “Soundscape Memoirs”. People read it, too.
Miraculous stuff happened in 2013. I found a pen pal across the pond, a staff position at Gold Flake Paint, a record store, friends to talk to, and the greatest sounds emanating from Athens, Georgia in this day and age. And that, my friends, leads us to the Mixcloud broadcast, remote interviews, graduate school at the University of Georgia, and a staff position at Everett True’s Collapse Board.
Which means, in the end, that I still don’t know much of anything. But ya gotta learn somewhere, yeah?

If you have something that I should hear and play then contact me but do not send it to the UK PO Box ... because I am in USA and it would cost too much to forward.
