murmer, songs for forgetting, gruenrekorder 2016
well folks, we’ve arrived at the end of another year of framework programming, our 15th, to be precise! we finish this year with a bit of self-promotion, but who can say i don’t deserve it? this week, tomorrow, in fact (from the time of my writing, not necessarily your reading) my new album, my first solo vinyl lp in over 15 years of releasing music, is released to the public by the great gruenrekorder record label, who avid listeners of the show will undoubtedly be very familiar with. songs for forgetting is almost 10 years in the making, and i am very, very excited that it is finally seeing the light of day, and i hope you are too. copies of the vinyl are available from gruenrekorder or directly from me, and the label also has a cheaper digital download version available if you’re not a fan of the vinyl (and i know some of you are not). i hope you’ll listen to the album, and let me know what you think!
so my own horn was tooted alongside some other superb releases, another extremely timely one (we don’t even have a physical copy yet) being stéphane marin‘s unfathomless debut. also some older works: a self-released jeph jerman cdr from 2009, another unfathomless release (this one by philip sulidae) from 2014, and some self-released mike kramer works that span a few years, all available on his bandcamp page. all begun with an introduction recorded on elephanta island in india by regular contributor martin clarke.
so that will do us for 2016! at this generous, gift-giving time of year, we like to remind you that your favorite radio show is also in need of your generosity! if you’re glad we’re here, and you want us to stick around and keep doing what we do, we need you to be actively involved in making sure it can happen. PLEASE wish us a happy new year by going to the website and making a one-time, holiday-tinged donation of an amount of your choice to help keep framework radio on the air. or sign up to make a regular monthly contribution of anything from 1€ to 50€ per month. WE NEED YOU and we hope you need us to. we’ll be back with show #580 on january 8th, 2017. until then, happy holidays to everyone, and happy listening!
