A Very Long Way Away
(File under: radio, portland, ambient, pals)
A shorter than usual email this week. I’m writing from the geographical center of a migraine and want to look at this screen as little as humanly possible—but here’s something I’m trying to shoo the pain away with in the meantime.
My pal Neil hosts a radio show called A Very Long Way Away for Freeform Portland, an independent and volunteer-run radio station. You can pick any week and be rewarded with a wildly eclectic mix of music. “What is this,” you’ll repeatedly say to yourself as you listen, eyebrows furrowed. I’d recommend readers of this newsletter this show in particular, an idyllic half hour of gentle instrumentals, cooing and purring and chirping. The vibes are astonishing. Enjoy.
If you enjoyed last week’s issue (15. Window music) about Hiroshi Yoshimura’s Music for Nine Post Cards, Pitchfork just reviewed the recent reissue of his 1986 record GREEN, which is every bit as wonderful.
Speaking of last week’s issue, due to some mystery technical glitch, some of you may have received your email in the middle of the week, and possibly multiple times. Sorry about that.
As ever, if you know of something I might enjoy, or you just want to say hello, please do just that → email@example.com
Also, if you enjoy this newsletter, please share it with someone! That’d be nice.
Retiring to a dark, quiet room,
