Accordion Noir radio playlist 2019-10-30: Spooky Squeeze, Vilda and Geoff Berner

October 31, 2019

Another year, another Hallowe’en episode. Is any instrument so well suited to the seasonal eeriness as a demented squeezebox grinding a broken circus tune? (You, in the back, with the theremin: sit down.) Bruce reached down to the bottom of his Pandora’s Box for creepy, kooky, and downright ooky accordion music selections to air on tonight’s episode, including selections representing Geoff Berner’s imminent Nov 1st performance at the WISE Hall of The Trombonik Returns to New Chelm and the launch of his new album GRAND HOTEL COSMOPOLIS. Also mixed in to the playlist you can find Finland’s astounding VILDÁ, incoming soon to Victoria’s Accordion and Tango festival and indeed our own Accordion Noir Festival in just a couple of weeks! If you’re not yet getting notified of new episodes through your Apple or Google podcast subscriptions, you can enjoy listening to the entire episode courtesy of the Internet Archive. To telegraph its contents, here’s the episode’s playlist:
