Monkey Mind – 12/19/2011

You know, sometimes when you’re doing radio you get this warm, full feeling of the music flowing and filling you as you select and channel it, sweeping your hands into the river of sound to speed it along and knowing – just fucking *knowing* – that you’re doing good in the world when you usually just muddle along, muttering to yourself about how awful everything is.

I don’t know if you’ll feel it like I did, but this show was definitely one of those times. Thanks for listening, and thanks to taintradio for giving me the chance to feel that again.

This week in session we were promised the Wagon Tales with hot

generally joins in the festive mood in the snake pit studio.
Our record of the week comes from a brand new East London duo, Black & Scarr,
their debut album is destined to become a classic, sounds like a Nashville roots
