With special guest The Stunning Rayguns
What a brutal year 2016 has been.
With the shocking, unexpected Trump win, I found it very difficult to want to do a show. One album that practically leapt into my crate on that Tuesday evening was Leonard Cohen’s (since prescient) album The Future.
And now the wheels of heaven stop, you feel the devil’s riding crop. Get ready for the future: it is murder..
Indeed. Bleak times. The title track seemed really appropriate. I have also found solace in the track Anthems and its beautiful lyrics:
There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.
And then, just an hour before I was to depart for the station, came the news that Leonard Cohen had passed away.
Goddamnit, 2016. What’s next?
But I was pleased to have tonight as our guests The Stunning Rayguns from Portland, who played two amazing extended sets of cosmic soundtrack music live in the studio.
The Stunning Rayguns are Raymond Martin on guitar and Collin Colebank on drums and electronics. You can find them on Bandcamp
