You Disappear Radio 3

Episode three of You Disappear Radio is available now in the feed. Please read the show notes included in the podcast and visit the links in the enhanced audio file to visit the artists sites. The idea is to give you a sample of some great music and hopefully turn you onto some great new albums in the process. See the tags below for links to my reviews on You Disappear of the artists included in this episode.

Otherwise, here is a link to the feed which you can put into iTunes or whichever reader you use for podcasts: http://www.youdisappear.net/files/blog.xml I don’t include direct links to the files in these posts simply because I am keeping this on the underground side of things and I want to keep things as simple as possible with them. Hopefully this will not alienate too may people. Let me know your thoughts should you have an opinion on the idea. I am always open to suggestions.

If you are an artist featured on this podcast and you wish to have your music removed please contact me directly at john-at-youdisappear.net and I will be more than happy to remove it for you. I completely understand, the intention of the site is to promote great music of a calm mindset, not capitalize on it. Its for the love of the music.

They Shoot, We Score

Yo La Tengo - They Shoot, We Score

I cannot stop listening to Yo La Tengo’s score for the film Old Joy. Its become the type of music that I simply must keep listening to because without it I fear I may fall apart. The clean and deep electric guitar echoes out a solitude that is truly haunting and is layered perfectly with subtle layers of piano, bass and on occasion, drums. Its a simple instrumental masterpiece that my mind cannot get enough of. The music is available via an album they released which contains music for all the films they have been part of scoring over the past few years and the music from Old Joy is easily my favorite from the collection and is what I am recommending to you here. It was released on CD as well as digitally but not via the usual channels and I can only find it through their site here. There is a note on the homepage saying the sore is broken but who knows, that may be out dated. Either way if you would like to hear the music first simply watch the film, its a wonderful quiet film that may be slow for some peoples taste but I really enjoyed it.

And Then Nothing...

Yo La Tengo - And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out

I’ve been revisiting Yo La Tengo recently because I always just sort of passed them off as yet another indie rock group. Then I came across this album and really fell for it. The name of the album is what caught my attention at first. The album is sort of a gently rocking ride as you listen and sway along to the beat of the drums. While most of the music sits there on the calm level of existance there are a couple livlier tracks on here for those of you who may not be expecting to hear such rocking songs around the site. Even these exude some level of calmness though and as a whole its a wonderful trip and fans of the other music on You Disappear should take note if you have not heard the album. I look forward to checking out the rest of their material as time permits.
