Us & Us: “The Sensitive Adventures Of Ebb And Flow…”
A Motion Podcast Episode for September 2011
Transmitting from Mount Vernon, New York, USA
Supplying musical therapy by way of vinyl, CD, cassette, and MP3

I’ve been wanting to say something. Prior to the two episodes from me that popped up out of nowhere last year, I was absent for a year and some change, so I feel like I ought to

actually say something. At the same time, the music speak volumes on its own and is far more eloquent than I am.

Acts like Jonti, Sepalcure, Toro Y Moi, and When Saints Go Machine represent the current obsessions while the music of Arthur Russell remains a constant inspiration. Arthur’s

Landing represents lovely for Russell’s compositions. There’s some beat science from Andres and Sir Froderick as well as Bullion, who had a remix project marrying the work of

The Beach Boys with J Dilla’s b eats. Ultramarine put out their first new material in over thirteen years, which thrills me to death. And there are pieces from Phil Upchurch and Bill

Cosby that resonate strongly with me as of late. The glitchy sensitivity of Claro Intelecto and Auch, the wide-eyed fun of Saint Etienne remixing Pizzicato Five, the album cuts from

Funkadelic and The Crusaders that I’ve been wanting to play for you for months now…this is just me doing what I do. Grabbing some selections from the collection and trying to

connect some dots.

Thank you very much for joining me. Hope you enjoy the set…
