Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-12-08: Next Level December

December 9, 2021
AccNoir 2021-12-08
Portland’s Decemberists do not appear in this episode,
though their band name is an excellent match for the name of this monht.

There have been a whole lot of scripted, plotted, and exhaustively planned episodes of Accordion Noir recently. Phew! It’s a lot of work, but sometimes, if we play our cards right, DJing can be easy — as easy as a friend playing you their favorite albums from their record collection. So here is Bruce returning to traditional form, sharing a set of squeezy tunes that don’t have much to do with each other, like a theme or a genre or a geograpic center, besides a shared focus on the use of instruments from the free-reed aerophone family. And really… that should be enough! It’s a good set. If your Apple or Android (or plain old RSS) podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to the episode’s availability yet, you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:

Just random stuff, with Alex Meixner and Tom Waits’ birthday tunes [Bruce wants you all to know his Waits birthday wishes were a day belated], and some pretty things in the middle.
