I had the fortune of hosting a release party for zircon’s AMAZING new album, Identity Sequence. During the show I had a conference call with both Jill and Andrew Aversa, the brains behind the album, as well as the lovely Jeff Ball and Chris Gordon, and artist Jessie Lam. We all had a lot of fun and I asked them questions about the kind of amazing effort each one of them put forth towards making Identity Sequence. You can pick up the album for $10 right on his site. Really had a lot of fun hosting this album party, and zircon is allowing me to host the recorded show that includes the album itself and the interview segments. I also started off the show with a few selected tracks from zircon himself. Read on for the playlist!

My old friend, Andrew Aversa, aka zircon, released a new album recently. I played most of it on the show tonight, as well as favorites from a recently revived Stalking Duppi blog, which focuses on extremely obscure Japanese music from the 1980s. Had to play some stuff also from a new Ubiktune release, “I Miss You – Earthbount 2012,” unfortunately overshadowed by releases of a monolithic stature both before and after its release. Also caught up a bit with iamamiwhoami, a favorite experimental synth band of mine. Read on for the full playlist below.
