DJ Wynn just wrapped up one of the busiest month's of work he has ever had, so besides going to sleep immediately, he has also gift wrapped a set of happy feelings featuring music from Tame Impala, Flying Lotus, Danny Brown, and Nils Frahm.
Wynn prepares for an artist retreat with music from The War On Drugs, Sharon Van Etten, How To Dress Well, and Naomi Shelton and The Gospel Queens.
We've all been on Google Earth and used it's satellite view or street view tools to get directions, find our way around a new city or just explore. My guest, artist Jenny Odell, has taken these tools a step further to use them as the subject of her work. Odell scrolls around Google Satellite view collecting images of uniquely man-made structures — like swimming pools, parking lots and landfills — and arranges them on large prints, a way of re-examining the human-built landscape from the very inhuman perspective of a satellite's remote camera.
DJ Wynn tells tales from one of his best weeks in live music. Ava Luna had an album release party at Silent Barn, and Nils Frahm played an unforgettable set at Glasslands. Also in the mix are tracks from Angel Olsen, Dry Heeves, and Thee Oh Sees.
DJ Wynn talks about the themes of La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty), directed by Paolo Sorrentino. Also in the mix are new tracks from Angel Olsen, Hospitality, and Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings.
On the heels of last week's Polar Vortex -- which sent temperatures across the country plunging to record lows -- it seems appropriate that this week's guest is artist Andrea Polli. Andrea's work deals heavily with climate and weather. For her projects, she frequently collaborate with atmospheric and other scientists to collect data, conduct interviews and make field recordings, which she uses in her work. These projects take the form of installations, video and sound works call sonifications.
