Left Of The Dial #103 - Twee As Funk

Apr 22, 2016

There's this video making the rounds, of Prince making a guitar disappear after shredding through "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" in a performance for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. While the whereabouts of said instrument is indeed a mystery, what is perhaps more astonishing is the quality of Prince's performance. Dude is clearly not even from the same planet as the other musicians on that stage. 

The Current, which is Minnesota Public Radio's music station, did a wonderful thing on Thursday by going all in on Prince, not just by playing his music, but by speaking with people who were moved by his life and sharing their stories. Starting at 6:00pm Central time on Friday, April 22nd and for 26 hours after that they'll be playing Prince's entire catalog. You can stream their programing at this link

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard's latest album is titled Nonagon Infinity and it is a nine-track psych-rock journey that concludes with a moment of sound that syncs up perfectly with the very first moment of the album. It is a nine-sided infinite loop. I think that is amazing! 

Finally I'd like to share with you the website of Casey Mecija, who has presented her album Psychic Materials with accompanying GIFs for each track. Gorgeous.
