Jodycast #16: July 15, 2013

The current episode has me getting a little political, sharing some brief thoughts about George Zimmerman, the Voting Rights Act, the fall of DOMA/Prop 8, and how it’s not a good time for women in Texas or basically anywhere. Also, I celebrate gay marriage with a bit of the queer pop culture I, a straight/bi-ish girl with the same NYC art damage and sense of “inclusivity as basic universal tenet” as Lady Gaga, grew up around. Plus I just love “Man of La Mancha” and “Candide.”

A proper Jodycast episode, with loads of fun banter and a shoutout to my choral-geek leanings. And it runs slightly long, which means I was extra-inspired this week.

Going back to the halcyon “avant/new-music/electronic” days of the first few Jodycasts. I kinda pulled this week’s episode out of thin air, since I didn’t have much time to listen to new things — and that’s a shame, because the great Important Records just sent me a massive box of back-catalog promos for podcast use. I did throw in a Christina Kubisch piece from one of that box’s CDs, and in future episodes you may hear tracks from Eliane Radigue, My Cat Is An Alien, Duane Pitre, the Robbie Basho tribute album, or any number of other things. You’ll also notice that I don’t do much talking on this episode — inspired partially by the Quartz City podcast where Chris specifically doesn’t break up the songs with chat, but also inspired by the fact that I have a big effing test coming up and I need to concentrate on that.

Iannis Xenakis – N’Shima for 2 female voices, 2 horns, 2 trombones and cello
California E.A.R. Unit, Joan La Barbara, Gene Youngblood, Morton Subotnick – All My Hummingbirds Have Alibis: I. All my hummingbirds have alibis
John Luther Adams – …and bells remembered…
Christina Kubisch – Ocigam Trazom
Tod Dockstader – Soft Aurora
Zoltán Pongrácz – Concertino for cimbalom & electronics



Sorry I never got around to posting my show notes for Episode #11 last week. This was a pretty noise-centric show, or at least it contained some difficult listening, and of course, a two-song tribute to the very polarizing Yoko Ono, who just celebrated her eightieth birthday. As a bonus, I threw in a couple of French punk singles at the end.

Fall – Spectre Vs Rector (Live)
Diamanda Galas – This Is The Law Of The Plague
Yoko Ono – She Gets Down On Her Knees
Child Molesters – Don’t Worry Kyoko, Mummy’s Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow
Les Rallizes Denudes – The Night Collectors
Kikuri (Keiji Haino and Masami Akita) – Give Me Back That Colour You Stole From My Guts
Judy Nylon – The Dice
Edith Nylon – Tank
Guilty Razors – I Don’t Wanna Be A Rich



Choral choons, Reagan/Thatcher/Falklands punk, and Acid Mothers Temple’s “In C.” I’m sick with a cold this week so you get to hear me at peak congestion.

A word about the choral pieces: my group is doing the Janacek tune this season, and I did the Brahms one with my college choir. I don’t have any personal connection with “Eighteen Shining Buttons” but the Choir of the 21st Century Matyas Seiber tribute was one of my favorite albums of 2012.

Cappella Amsterdam and Daniel Reuss – Janacek: The Wild Duck (Kacena Divoka) 
London Sinfonietta Chorus & Terry Edwards – Messiaen: O Sacrum Convivium! 
Anthony Halstead, Christian Rutherford, Delyth Wynne, John Eliot Gardiner & Montiverdi Choir – Brahms: 4 Gesange, Op. 17: 4. Gesang Aus Fingal (Ossian) 
Choir of the 21st Century & Howard Williams – Seiber: Yugoslav Folk Songs: IIa. Eighteen Shining Buttons 
Pissed Jeans – Bathroom Laughter 
Dayglo Abortions – Ronald McRaygun 
M.D.C. – Bye Bye Ronnie 
Notsensibles – I’m In Love With Margaret Thatcher 
Larks – Maggie Maggie Maggie (Out Out Out) 
Crass – Sheep Farming in the Falklands 
Ruins – Infect 
Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. – In C



Public domain vaudeville, African funk, girl groups. This Jodycast was thrown together in a few hours — honestly, I’m supposed to be reading from my “On Cooking” and “Garde Manger” books instead of putzing around in Audacity — but I still like the way it turned out. As always, I apologize for my mangled pronunciations. I’d like to think I’m fairly worldly, but I haven’t studied any languages except for English, German, and Italian, and two of those are shaky at best.
