Song of the Day: “Konkylie” by When Saints Go Machine

You may have noticed that most vocals on electronic music track are from women. When Saints Go Machine provide a nice counterpoint to that standard and this track is proof.

solipsistic NATION No. 305: Pepe Deluxé, Live

Got a great show for you today! We’re going to rock out to Pepe Deluxé, live from the Tavastia Club in Helsinki. We’ll also chat with Pepe Deluxé co-founder, Jari Salo. Before we talk with Jari, let’s address the elephant in the living room. Where the hell have I been for the last three months!?! I wish I could tell you that I was on a tour around the globe, or that I was on a river boat, writing the great American novel, or something equally grandiose... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 303: Elastic Bond, Live

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 Ty was absolutely right, I had to have them on the show. Calima will appear on solipsistic NATION... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 299: The Best Electronic Music of 2012

In the six years of producing solipsistic NATION I’ve never done a “best of show.” There are a couple of reasons for that. One reason is because there are already enough record stores, magazines and blogs doing a much better job of curating music from the last year than I am. Hell, the Headphone Commute blog dedicates an entire month looking back at the last year alone. But honestly, I could never care enough to get my act together to do this kind of show. I... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 295: Palenke Soultribe

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, I don’t care. I’m just thrilled and honored to be included on taintradio’s roster.... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 293: Michael Maricle, Live

Today on solipsistic NATION we’re going to listen to live in-studio performance recorded by Michael Maricle! Michael has been recording and performing his music for a while now but I only just discovered him when a promotional copy of his recently released The Heart Found You album was sent my way for review. Michael’s music was instantly familiar and seems to come from the same tradition that The Orb and Tripswitch others do. I don’t quite know what that tradition... Read More

Song of the Day: “Huh” by TEEN

“Huh” from TEEN’s In Limbo album. This track has a very 80′s 4AD-Cocteau Twins feel to it. Not a bad thing. “Huh” from TEEN’s In Limbo album. This track has a very 80′s 4AD-Cocteau Twins feel to it. Not a bad thing. Read More
