Arthur Radio Transmission #14: Cave Crawling

Double-click for fullscreen + scroll.

Arthur Radio is moving from daytime into nighttime, now broadcasting live every Sunday from 9-11pm EST on Newtown Radio. This past Sunday we spelunked our way into the new slot, feeling our way blindly through the cavernous darkness until our purple-hued blacklights hit upon a a sparkling formation of phosphorescent rocks. We decided to sit for awhile and rest in their glow, listening as intermittent drops of water fell from nearby stalactites, echoing endlessly along the ancient limestone corridors from which we came…

Download: Robert A.A. Lowe and Rose Lazar — “Fantomoj de la Vitro Domo” (mp3)

This lovely piece of still-time new age is off “Eclipses,” a new album by Robert A.A. Lowe and Rose Lazar, courtesy the good folk of Thrill Jockey Records. Available on LP with 12” x 36” full color double sided poster (!), which, they say, is “included to properly voice the images, which end up as a sort of storyboard to the music…”

You may recognize Rob from his work as Lichens, or as a member of 90 Day Men and Singer…or the mighty Om, who he played with on their recent North American tour. (He’s about to leave for Europe for more dates with Om.)

Buy “Eclipses” direct here.

Intrigued parties might also enjoy the tones of Enumclaw, previously featured in this space…
