A Duck in a Tree Listening Club

Recommended Posts

So obv inspired by spans Planet Mu Listening Club thread.
 
I've been going trough :zoviet*france:'s a duck in a tree podcast and it has been rlly quite magical, alot of rlly rlly good stuff I would have never heard any other way. So I'd like to share it w u guys!
 
So since it's an ongoing weekly podcast I was thinking of doing two podcasts a week from the very start until we catch up n then keep going w the weekly shcedule.
 
First I'd like to know if anyone is interested at all? 
 
I'd probably post em on wednesday and sunday to offset spans schedule.
 
We'd be starting with 2012-07-14 | beta 1 .
 
about

:zoviet*france: present A Duck in a Tree, a 60 minute continuous mix of some of the best genre-refusing, zero BPM, hypnatropic and maximinimalist recordings that have grabbed their attention.

 

supporting the show

A Duck in a Tree is something we do for free – we aren't paid by anyone to do it. We do it because we feel we are in a good position to enable a world of sound and music to be heard that doesn't get much exposure. There is a cost to us in doing this as we are charged a hosting fee by PodBean for the facility of storing and distributing the podcast version. You can support the show by donating towards the cost of this via PayPal directly to our account (zf@zovietfrance.org) or via the donation facility on the right hand side of our PodBean page.

some of the most refined compiling of tracks out there & a wicked entertainment hub in itself, the dedication involved is clearly the result of many years spent listening to & hunting for quality music.....art may be subjective but this is a cut above overall

 

the tracklistings might be a good start, cos the spectrum of audio so far have been relentless, only problem has been finding the time to process it all & i'm waaaay behind

 

Robbie M has left, so owt Zoviet France is all good generally especially these shows & their varied focus points, i just wish Richard H Kirk would do something similar

Been an avid follower of the Duck in a Tree (also it took me some time to get the duckinatree pun)

naturally I was lead here after Z*F fell apart

this dude has some interesting obscure sources for musics

his early mixes had a bit of theme going in each, that's what I really dig

Another big ZF fanboy here. Travelled to newcastle to see them a few years ago in a beautiful elliptical church. I kept up with ADIAT for about a year and tune in every now and then. Its a real goldmine of ambient music and field recordings! I'll try and keep up here too.

if you read 'documentary' kind of low-fi, duck-in-a-tree is phonetically close, let's say

I was intrigued by the bird recording in the tracklist, and it turned out really nice, fits right in there. Overall really enjoyed the whole thing, this is gonna do just fine for me to get into ambient/droney stuff again.

from the last couple, Diane Rogerson was married to S Stapleton & it's always a treat hearing her voice emerge out the ether, hadn't read the tracklisting so a sweet surprise, well worth crate digging for her work

 

https://www.discogs.com/artist/84400-Diana-Rogerson

 

lastly, Moondog can always be trusted to be Moondog, he seems to make cyclical appearances in mixes from folks all over the gaff down through the years & even though he was clearly a loon his voice makes me chuckle, Popul Vuh = jizz, CDB, Lull,

 

a treasure trove of gems & eclectic in its own way through all that, howay the toon
