Halloweenathon Part Two

Bram Stoker's Dracula

This is part two of a Halloweenathon.  You can find part one here.  Tonight’s show is part music and part radio drama.  It was something I did not actually plan to do.  Yeah, I usually do a Halloween Shoe… Heck, it is the only holiday of the year where I fit in.

I was in the mood for some old time radio drama and hit archive.org.  I recalled Zack Daggy did a scary show.  I had a quiet, I mean DEAD quiet Sunday, a few ghouls showed up and one thing led to, well, eventually this.  Enjoy and be afraid….

  • The Deformities with “Creature Feature” and “Vampire Lover”
  • Paul and Storm with “Olive Garden”, “Cruel, Cruel, Moon”, “Infected”, “Live”, and “Lame Monster Party”

Up next is a live radio theater performance of “Dracula”.  This is part of the Community Audio Collection over at The Internet Archive. It is actually a live theater performance and only nostalgic in style. Radio Theater presented Dracula at the Player Theatre.

Credits for the live show are as follows;

  • Written, directed, music, and sound design by Dan Bianchi.
  • Wes Shippee was the engineer.
  • The Eisenhowers“Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein”
  • “Goblin City” by Panthers
  • From Tom Smith, and to close out “Zombie Pirates in Love”, “Giant Monster”, and “Undead Happy Trees”

Special thanks and kudos to;

  • Mevio’s Music Alley, likely the best “podsafe” music repository on the planet!
  • The Internet Archive, the place for all kinds of archived media
  • Gavin Salkeld for the music used in our IDs
  • The artists, past, present and future who share their music under a Creative Commons License
  • Each of you who listen to this show
  • The staff of indienation.fm for putting up with me

Halloween Sounding Music by Gavin Salkeld and Kevin Macleod

あまみや

Lumpy considers these two musicians very special.  They are really very into what I always call the  new media order.  They use the Creative Commons License to promote themselves and, at the same time, help podcasters like me and stations like us by allowing us to use awesome background music for voice overs, station promos and IDs.

Gavin is especially kewl.  For lack of a better name, he is our “in house music producer”.  He is the musician responsible for our background music in almost all of our IDs and promos.

I thought it would be a neat Halloween thing to create about a thirty minute podcast with very minimal chatter.  Something that you could play as the trick or treaters ding donged your door bell.  I ran on over to freesounds.org and got some appropriate noises. Then I did something that should please many of you, I talked very little.  Give out the candy, kids no tricks please, enjoy and happy Halloween.  I left out any station IDs or promos.  It is almost all music, perfect Halloween music in my opinion.

I started it off with Kevin MacLeod

  • Voices
  • Awkward Meeting
  • Classic Horror
  • Aftermath
  • The Dracula Waltz

Next some Gavin Salkeld

  • The Killing
  • Lost Souls
  • A Grim Discovery
  • Flashback
  • Give Yourself Up

A Conversation with Anouschka – Part Two

POSTED ON July 15th  - POSTED IN independent music, interviews, music, Podcasts
Play

The conversation originally took place on 19 December, 2009. It was right after she had just finished a tour, released a new album and just before she was about to head off to the African Bush as a volunteer field guide trainee.

This is the second of two edited and mixed interview. The first part is here. I tried to produce them in a manner that the order is not important, however, this one focused more on her most recent release, “So Why?”. This interview was more interview than music. The first part is more like short Q&A with a whole lot of music. Regardless, I think they are both excellent and, like her music, a just a different style.

Anouschka is an awesome person and a great conservationist, it was a pleasure to be graced with so much of her time to get this interview. Here is an outline of this conversation, songs in bold and interview questions in regular type:

  • We talk about her new release “So Why” and play the title track So Why
  • We talked about some of the musicians on the album and then we spun Vagrant of the Winds
  • I asked her about House of My Father and then we played it
  • We chatted about her trip to Africa and her song Silently
  • I closed the show with One of the Finer Days

You can purchase her music at Amazon, Anouschka and The CD Baby links below.

Anouschka

This is the first of two rather edited interviews with songwriter Anouschka. The conversation originally took place on 19 December, 2009. It was right after she had just finished a tour, released a new album and just before she was about to head off to Africa as a volunteer field guide trainee.

We were on Skype for hours and I used material from all three of her albums; Anouschka, My Kind of Heartbreak and So Why?

Anouschka is an interesting person, it was a pleasure to be graced with so much of her time to get this interview. Here is an outline of this conversation, songs in bold and interview questions in regular type:

  • Buried Alive
  • My Loyal Heart
  • Who do you think you sound like?
  • A Man Like You
  • I asked her for a short bio, just sounds better than “tell me about your childhood”.. we talk a bit about the “My Kind of Heartbreak” album, the cover art, concept and it’s analog roots
  • Lets See This Through
  • I ask her how she composes
  • Sometimes I just Go Crazy
  • Where to find her CDs. Everything is at Anouschka.net
  • When Are You Coming Around?
  • I ask her about Rainy Night in Chelsea
  • My Kinda Heartbreak
  • I ask her about Call Daphne
  • Good Girl Gone Wild
  • Where to find her CDs. Everything is at Anouschka.net
  • Beautiful but Damned

Look for part two of this interview Thursday of this week. And listen to the stream for Lumpy is likely to stream it from time to time. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. You can purchase her music at Amazon, Anouschka and The CD Baby links below.

Black Water (The BP Version)

POSTED ON July 11th  - POSTED IN independent music, music, videos

I know we try and keep it non-political here but this one is just too funny to pass up. Beside, I think he is more honest about it than the six o’clock news and that house of white color in D.C.  That, and it is just on darn good parody.

I have had a few questions regarding this mess myself:

  • Why do we keep calling it a spill? I don’t understand how something gushing out of the ocean floor at 4000 PSI is a spill. I think geyser or fountain is a better description.
  • How did BP manage to get federal assistance, aren’t they a British company?
  • Shouldn’t we be talking liability and not assistance? Oh that’s right, more taxes to fix it. Does that mean that the citizens of the US are liable?
  • Why did their stock value increase?
  • When do you intend to buy anything from BP again?

Personally, I think Steve Goodie has it summed up darn good.



You can find out more about Steve Goodie, and many other comedy musicians, at Spaff.com and The FuMP. Kudos to Mr. Goodie! You can find out more about Steve at Stevegoodie.com.

2010.06.06 – Pick of the Day – Gavin Salkeld – Our In House Music Producer

Gavin Salkeld

Our In House Music Producer

Yeah, I am still behind but gaining on all of these picks of the day that stacked up on my hard drive due to the gremlin attack on the server. Such is and so be, those of us who like this type of thing keep pluggin’ away at it. Rome wasn’t built in a day nor shall the best indie Internet station on the planet. Come to think of it, I don’t think the Romans had to deal with electrical substations taking out their servers. Trust me though, Indie Nation would be worse off if it were not for today’s pick. Gavin Salkeld is, for lack of a better term, our “In House Music Producer”. He is the guy who provides us with the kewl music you hear in our IDs and slogans. Personally, I consider Gavin a great e-friend who has done much to help not only my endeavors as a podcaster but all of at the station as well. He has done everything from being on The Lumpcast, to producing a special 20 minute mix of a film score he was working on and, he even hijacked my show for me on one occasion. Now, I must say that this post is in no way shape or form some type of “payback”. In fact, the exact opposite is true. Gavin is staff here because he does excellent music, understands music production, excels at studio work, is an awesome talent as a composer, and is an independent artist in both film and music. Seriously, do you think I would ask someone to be staff that I thought was sucky at such things? The reason this man is my pick for the day is the same reason he is staff. He is a very awesome independent artist and his final cuts rawk. Truth be told, Indie Nation could not exist with out artists like Gavin. We are proud to have him on board as staff. We would also like to thank him and all the other musicians, past, present and future who embrace the new media order and creative commons. Otherwise we would just be dead air.
