First Contact Part I: Ryan Ray And The Accumulation & Admiran! (Recorded 27 July 2013)
(Featuring live performances by Ryan Ray And The Accumulation & Admiran, recorded at Slim’s in historic St. John’s!)
We’ve had an incredibly busy summer, working with a number of artists, venues and performers, all to record and bring you a wide range of media. However, this has delayed the production of new shows to download and listen to, as editing and producing these take no small amount of time. The good news is: we’re starting to make it through the stacks of recordings, and today you can hear some of the excellent results, starting with Part I of our three part broadcast from our Experimental Podcast Party we threw on 27 July 2013. This show was a lot of fun, and Slim’s was a real sport, allowing us to take over the bar for a night, and bring you some amazing music. If you’re not already a regular there, you might want to start, as there are some great shows being put on, and the staff are great.
In this part of the show, we kick things off with a performance by Ryan Ray & The Accumulation, a rarely seen artist who brings post-modern poetry, electronic music, saxophone, and his own particular brand of tunage to present an experimental performance that should not be missed. Ryan Ray is most well know for his band The Blue Faces, but his current work is just as psychedelic and impressive, and demands your attention. This recording contains the entire performance from 27 July of this year.
Next, we bring you none other than the incredible Admiran, from the local music collective Battlesnakes! Admiran has a number of digital releases available for your listening pleasure, and you should most definitely check out his website, and download to your heart’s content. But if you would like to find out what Admiran does live, then this performance is what you need to be jamming on your car stereo. Admiran adds deconstructed dance grooves, guitar noise wonder, and electronic bleeps and bloops to present an audio assault that makes you feel very excellent. This recording contains the entire performance from 27 July of this year.
We would be remiss if we did not mention the audience, who not only showed up in full force for this show, but were very engaging and kept urging us all on. And: they were full of a number of friends, eager to see what we’d concocted for this evening’s entertainment. For that: thank you. While we don’t need to remind you, without out, there would be no show.
