Some People Are Just Into Appearances: Transmission 144, 2014 August 12

odd-numbers-break-even.jpgWe are positively hurtling towards an exciting finish to the week, as my obsessive-compulsive tendencies vie with my desire to get the latest Hall of Legends episode posted. This program happened because...oh, what am I saying? This was a regular "alpha" program, mostly new (and newly-reissued) stuff bookended by a couple of 1980s chestnuts/tributes. Structurally problematic? Yes, but people matter, whether they are post-punk heroes or "dear friends" of a personal sort.

Mistakes: have I made a few? You know it. Mostly, though, this is well-executed. At least with this "No Label" release, all four of the songs came off without a hitch. Which is nice--that Odd Numbers EP is pleasing on many levels.

Special shout-out to listener Matt, who clued me in to DAMA/LIBRA. And to Mount Kimbie, whose album title I did remember a bit later: Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. There.
