Here’s what has been happening on the weekly Free Form Freakout show for the past month. Yes, despite our best intentions, we’ve once again fallen behind on posting these playlists. In this span of time, though, David caught Julian Koster’s live performance of The Orbiting Human Circus, and Carl saw Alice Cooper perform here locally. We talked up the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers album, and we played some notable new music by the likes of Nicole Mitchell, TALsounds, Rangers, and Thundercat. Plus, we’re now starting to settle into our summertime routines, which means you’ll likely hear the occasional solo edition of the show over the next three months. The collage artwork included in this post was provided by the Danish artist, øjeRum. This week Round Bale Recordings, David’s small label, will be putting out a new release by øjeRum called Skygge. The image above was a part of a series of collages that would eventually form the artwork for the 6-panel CD digipak. You can view more of these images in this video preview for the release below. Thanks to Tim Lind of KMSU’s Shuffle Function for the video editing assist.
