Milk It : A NIRVANA MIXTAPE





After reading Charles Cross’ excellent biography of Kurt Cobain, Heavier Than Heaven, I felt moved to collect my favorite Nirvana songs in to a (digital) mixtape, mostly so I could carry around 1 hour and 30 minutes of anguished guttural dark rocknroll to tap in to when the mood called for. I have such profound and deep-felt respect and awe for Cobain & Co’s gifts as musicians, poets and avatars and this recent journey through words and music has made me appreciate anew what this powerhouse trio brought to the world. I’m continually amazed that they were only together a handful of years and only produced three studio albums, and I can’t help but wonder what Kurt would have done in following years had he kept himself alive. There is a new level of artistry and sophistication that comes through on In Utero-era recordings, as if he was only starting to bloom, and his self-inflicted early exit stands as a great tragedy for rock n roll.

This mix pulls together tracks from
Bleach, Nevermind and In Utero (mostly demos, B-sides, alt takes, etc) as well as their live albums (Reading, Portland 1989, Seattle Paramount Halloween 1991) and With the Lights Out box set.

Namaste Kurt. Here’s to hoping you’ve found your peace, and thanks for all the power chords, broken guitars and screams.

Chiron Transmission 1 : Golgotha



Greetings from the friendly Burners here at Destination Burning Man, and welcome to the latest mix from DJ Playaduster: "Chiron Transmissions 1 : Golgotha." Much of this podcast is shrouded in mystery and codes, but it appears to be a missive sent from the outer fringes of our solar system, a musical message that originates from the proto-comet Chiron.
Discovered in 1977 in its eccentric orbit between Saturn and Uranus, Chiron is known in some circles as the "Rainbow Bridge" or "Wounded Healer," a humble, benevolent guide that can assist humans by keeping us moving forward on our proper spiritual paths. In early February 2011, Chiron entered the watery realm of Pisces, activating the pure power of potential, the manifestation of the unconscious and transformative healing through (re)union with the divine.
The frequencies found in this podcast are believed to have originated from Chiron, with DJ Playaduster serving as a musical midwife in order that they be perceived by the human ear and widely disseminated through our dBM channels.
Contributing artists include Bill Laswell, Rena Jones, Phaelah, Tipper, Heyoka, James Blake, Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, DJ/rupture, Kim Hiorthoy, Ezekiel Honig, Yo-Yo Ma, Shackleton, PantyRaid and Thriftworks, with vocal musings from Joni Mitchell, Timothy Leary, Hekter McElliott, Pema Chodron and the Tangerines.

We're still puzzling over this one. Let us know how it hits you and what you perceive at gmail@destinationburningman.com or facebook.com/destinationBM

Our Love is Our Power



A mix of new soul, r&b love and loose-limbed funk, inspired and informed by my recent discovery of the musician Jamie Woon. Jeremy Sole dropped Woon's track "Lady Luck" on his KCRW show a couple of weeks ago, and I've been rocking it on the headphones every day since. I built this mix around 3 Jamie Woon tracks that I love, and they appear at the beginning, middle and end. Supporting the mood are jams by Raphael Saadiq, Digable Planets, Sade, Aloe Blacc, The Bees, Erykah Badu, Jamie Lidell, Lauryn Hill, The Roots, Andreya Triani, Galactic, Pharcyde and the Spinners. DIG IT Y'ALL!

Widespread Panic * Highlights from the 25th Anniversary Shows * 2/10/11



F
or your jamtastic listening pleasure, DJ Fundi has put together a 2-part mix featuring highlights of the recent Widespread Panic 25th anniversary shows at the Classic Center in Atlanta, GA. This episode features my favorite moments from the February 10, 2011 show -- we’ll post highlights from the following night next week. I know that purists will be horrified to hear a Panic show edited and blended in this fashion, but oh well -- one can purchase the shows in their glorious entirety at www.livewidespreadpanic.com. Get ready for some amazing jams, funky grooves and southern soul in these transmissions, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do!



Panic is sounding frickin’ awesome 25 years later...no small feat. Interesting to note that Panic opened up their very first show with Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” 25 years ago (almost to the day) at the Mad Hatter Ballroom on 2/6/86!

Track listing: For What It’s Worth (Buffalo Springfield; first since 11/22/88), You’ll Be Fine (first since 11/12/01), Proving Ground, Arleen (with Randall Bramblett on saxophone) > Drums > Fire on the Mountain (Grateful Dead; first since 10/2/88) > Space Wrangler > Coconut, Bowlegged Woman, Heaven (Talking Heads).

Here’s a review of the 2-night stand, from Honest Tune: The Southern Journal of Jam:

“How many bands can you think of that have made it 25 years, continuing to enamor their fans?  The first groups that likely come to mind are bands as highly regarded as the Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers Band, or the Rolling Stones; both of whom have persevered through the loss of key members, addiction, health issues, and an ever changing standard of what is considered "good" music.  The lesser known Widespread Panic is a recent addition to this list and in their 25 years together, they have experienced momentous highs and endured through unthinkable lows.  To the delight of a nation of devoted fans, "The Boys" who met in Athens, GA back in 1986 chose to celebrate the occasion by playing three unforgettable shows at two historic venues.”

Dwellingham (Acoustica 4)



This is a mix of music made as anticipation for moving off of the island and back up to Bellingham grows, with thoughts of nesting, family, cedar trees and grounding in heart. Mostly it is a collection of my favorite songs of this season of the mellowish, acoustic-based, beard-folk, often melancholy, always moving variety. These are the tunes I find myself listening to over, over & over again in the winter of 2010-2011.

The mix features Adam Hurst, Tallest Man on Earth, Iron & Wine, The Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, The Black Keys, Aloe Blacc, Sade, Mumford & Sons, Carlina Chocolate Drops, Cowboy Junkies, Neil Young, Band of Bees, Band of Horses, Josh Ritter, Robert Plant's Band of Joy, Laura Veirs, Ray LaMontagne & the Pariah Dogs, Sharon Van Etten and others.
