FFFreakout #553-556

So, here’s what has been happening on the weekly Free Form Freakout show over the past four weeks. In that time span, we started off by observing the sad passing of Hideo Ikeezumi, founder of the legendary Japanese experimental music label P.S.F. Records, and we moved through some busy weeks with shows that were peppered with a little Yacht Rock and Guinness Rock. We’re getting ourselves ready for what is going to be a pretty exciting month of April with some notable live shows happening in our area, which I’m sure we will be discussing at length on air in the weeks ahead.

You may have noticed that this post doesn’t contain the usual “record porn” imagery that we’ve been using for years on end now. After scrolling through the website and seeing how cluttered it is with redundant photos like that, I decided now is a good time to mix things up a bit and try to make the website at least a bit more visually appealing. Moving forward, I plan to integrate more original photography and artwork onto the website to showcase some friend’s and neighbor’s work. For starters, I plan on doing this through the weekly playlist updates, as I’m hoping that this will provide a bit of motivation to keep up with these on a more regular basis. We’ll see where it goes from there. I have considered getting back into doing some writing once again, maybe just some short reviews here-and-there when time and energy suits, but that seems like something that would be a few months down the road. Again, we’ll see. For this first post, and likely a few more in the weeks ahead, our old pal Cody Yantis has provided us with a series of striking photos he shot in and around his stomping grounds of downtown Denver using expired, infrared film. The series, taken as a whole, brings to mind a sort of lonesome, Kafkaesque landscape.
