What makes today’s such a special show—aside from the music, which is great, by the way—is that today’s show comes to you from Ty, who is both a listener and a friend of solipsistic NATION. Ty emailed me a few months ago and suggested that I might consider doing shows featuring Calima Shatiday and Elastic Bond. After checking out their music on iTunes I knew... Read More

If James Joyce was a DJ from America living in the 21st century then Ulysses just might have sounded like Mister Wi$E‘s Narrative Mixing: First Movement, Land. That explains everything, right? No? Brett Wise is Mister Wi$E and Narrative Mixing: First Movement, Land is his epic, sonic, surrealistic, psychedelic tale of our protagonist, making his way in the world using a vocabulary... Read More

2012 has been a fantastic year for solipsistic NATION! In 2012 began streaming on taintradio. At first glance it seems like an off fit—taintradio is primarily a jazz station, but that also include jazz on the fringes like Naked City and Last Exit. If you kind of squint your eyes you can see how solipsistic NATION might fit into taintradio’s overall format. Whatever,... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 294: …And Darkness Came (Slight Return)

Each edition of solipsistic NATION is evergreen because they rarely make any mention of current events. There’s no talk about the latest tragedy, the latest scandal or the latest war because solipsistic NATION is place for at least an hour every week where you can get away from all of that, where it just about the music. When you listen to solipsistic NATION you join a temporary... Read More

Today on solipsistic NATION we’re going to listen to an absolutely gorgeous mix from Jason Thomson, AKA, Herd. It’s beautiful and it’s haunting and I know you’re going to love it! I was really looking forward to having Jason on the show but he felt it best to let the music do the talking for him. This has always been one of the more frustrating aspects of... Read More

Like Lazarus, I return! Too be fair, Lazarus returned from the dead whereas I have merely returned from three months of working hard to meet a deadline at my job in addition to my daily responsibilities. I’m happy to say that I met that deadline but the last month has been particularly demanding and so I had to miss a few shows. But I’m back and we’ve got a great... Read More

On today’s show I’m handing the virtual wheels of steel over to Praketh, who has lovingly selected tracks from Audio Aashram, one of the only labels operating out of New Delhi that sell, promote and manage various artists and different styles of alternative electronic music. They also stream three different kinds of music at Radio79.com. Praketh has been a guest DJ on... Read More

On today’s show our guest is Nathan Phelan, host of The Electro Show. As the producer of solipsistic NATION I rarely have time to listen to other music podcasts. There simply isn’t enough hours in the day so there are only a handful of them. Macedonia’s Both Sides of the Surface is one. There’s also Mikel OD’s Most People Are DJs podcast and the Spartacus... Read More

Today on solipsistic NATION we’re going to reveal the hidden truths behind the Secret Archives of the Vatican… podcast. I don’t listen to many electronic music podcasts because: I simply don’t have the time, and; Most electronic music podcasts bore me, even good ones. For example, I love dubstep, but after listening to three or four episodes of a dubstep... Read More
