Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #846 – 10/13/2018: Live in-studio visit with Anton Barbeau and Julia Boorinakis Harper!

Anton Barbeau and Julia Boorinakis Harper in the Twirl studios

Well, Anton Barbeau is back visiting his hometown of Sacramento, from Berlin. And that means a Twirl Radio in-studio visit! Don’t get me wrong–I don’t take this for granted. Honestly–it never gets old. I just count myself lucky that he’s back, and here to chat music.

So he and Julia came and spent over an hour with me. We talked about Anton’s career. You know how some people metaphorically put things “on the back burner”? Well, he’s got something on every burner. Several musical projects in the works, in several countries. More albums on the horizon. More collaborations. And even another trip back to Northern California before the year is out. All of this comes out in the first half of the interview.

In the second part, Anton and Julia play DJ. Julia, who is a renaissance woman herself (graphic artist, musician, record label owner, and KVMR radio personality), knows her way around a turntable, going back to her days of doing a music show on the radio. I like to think of my show as eclectic, but the variety of music they both played puts me to shame. Everything from Julian Cope to ABBA to Parliament to a strangely psychedelic band from Wales, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci. It all worked, rather smoothly, if you ask me. It was exhilarating, to say the least.

The audio from this fun show will be coming soon.

Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #845 – 10/6/2018: Interview doubleheader: Christian Havins and Linda Beecroft of Dallas Acid, and Rich Hope!

Dallas Acid

Now this is what I would call a diverse show. We hadn’t done a doubleheader of interviews in a while, and the two artists we interviewed couldn’t be more dissimilar. And the variety is a good thing!

In the first hour, we met Christian Havins and Linda Beecroft, of ambient trio Dallas Acid (interestingly enough, from Austin, not Dallas). They recently had the opportunity to perform in New York with their musical heroes Laraaji and Arji OceAnanda. And after the show, they all decided to spend the next day recording together. So they did an impromptu session. Creativity ensued, and sonic soundscapes were created on the fly. They captured everything, and later on, edited them down to produce the Arrive Without Leaving album. Give a listen to this peaceful, powerful music, and see where it takes you.

Rich Hope

In the second hour, we chatted with Vancouver rocker Rich Hope. Laboring for many years as one half of “Vancouver’s one and only two man quartet of trashy boogie blues”, he expanded his sound to include a wurlitzer organ and horns. It’s fuzzy, grungy, and throws back a little to a simpler time when rock and roll was an exciting, frightening thing. But Rich’s blues and soul based music never loses its fun. He’s played in venues all over the world, and opened for many like minded musical souls, including The Flamin’ Groovies, Social Distortion, Reverend Horton Heat, and many others. Get this record and rock out…loud!
