Happy Halloweekend! As has become a seasonal tradition on this radio show, here is a 2-hour episode of dark and experimental music spanning the globe.
Always a good time of year to reflect upon our mortality, eat junk food, and to push ourselves out of our comfort zones. I hope you enjoy the spooky tunes!
Your radio ghost,
Take a trip to southern Japan and explore the diverse music of Kyūshū Island.. from left-field pop to electronic ambience and futuristic hip hop – they’ve got it all!
Yes that’s right, this radio program just reached double digits. We’ve played something like 8000 different artists on the show. It has been a magnificent globetrotting musical odyssey. My mind has been cracked open, and I can distill the experience into 3 words: HUMANS ARE AMAZING.
I’ve got nothing but love for all the people, especially musicians who grace every street corner, café or bar, playing for thousands or hiding in their bedroom chasing something mysterious and sublime. A special thanks to the almighty Internet and all its participants, for the invisible yet herculean effort of gathering all recorded music into one easily accessible place. Up until the last ten to twenty years, a show like this could not have existed. And of course a huge round of applause to you, every listener who has made the choice to try something new. It may seem trivial, but you are manifesting global awareness through your own openness to other cultures. Way to go! Earthlings be free!
We celebrate a decade of border smashing with a retrospective of music played on Wandering Rhythms, the cream of the crop as they say. Groove on.
Can you handle one last 2020 music retrospective? I promise it won’t have any Fiona Apple or any picks from other mainstream media sources. Despite being unanimously and pointlessly blamed for all of our human problems, 2020 was of course pretty great for music creation and releases. The beauty of music helped many souls survive global imprisonment, and quarantine gave many musicians the opportunity to tune out the world and simply create music. Despite financial struggles for most musicians (no touring, continual death of album sales), these brave creatures continue to make some of the most sublime, placeless and timeless art that humanity has never even dreamed of. These artists are my heroes. Thank you and groove on.
