12/12/2015: Year.End (Part Two)

This week, I (Michael) present my favorite music from 2015: songs from my favorite albums (see below), singles, and EPs including tunes from Maribou State, Bruce Trail, Thundercat, Wild Ones and Voices from the Lake. There was a ton of great music released this year and I am especially proud of the mixes we added to our show’s archives this year.

This show marks the end of my eighth year working with Joseph & Kenny on WCRS and my fifteenth year producing the Beat Oracle. Thank you to my co-hosts for always pushing us forward and to WCRS for being a beacon of participatory community radio in Ohio. As always, thank you to our listeners for your support.

On a personal note, few things in life top the joy of dancing to The Beat Oracle in the living room on Saturdays with little ones. Here’s to future music and future memories in 2016.

Floating Points – Elaenia
Nils Frahm – Solo
Gaussian Curve – Clouds
Jamie XX – In Colour
Anthony Naples – Body Pill

10/31/2015: Dark and Lonely Waters

Our latest episode is a sort of Halloween-tinged episode. While we regrettably failed to include Bobby Pickett’s “Monster Mash,” we did manage to include great tracks from Luke Vibert, Plaid, DJ Krush, Javelin, Moon Wiring Club, Abakus, Oneohtrix Point Never, The Future Sound of London, and Andy Stott. Enjoy the tunes.
