Accordion Noir radio playlist 2009-02-27: Gypsie et la Fleur, live!

March 25, 2019

138_cover_front

OK, we haven’t exactly been in lockstep with our archival recordings from ten years back, but we need to put in the effort to be deviating from it by no more than one month.  And so here, for no particular reason, today we share Accordion Noir radio episode number 117 from way back on February 27th of 2009, presumably for late-Valentine’s reasons, when we had on as live guests recent MySpace finds Gypsie et la Fleur, the presumably longago-disbanded duo of Mike Bell and Elyse Jacobson playing romantic music.  At its original online home this episode was enjoyed some 10331 times, and you can of course keep right on enjoying it courtesy of the Internet Archive, where we hope the recordings of back episodes keep up residence indefinitely.  (Cough cough, MySpace, cough Flickr, cough.)  Here’s its playlist:

Accordion Noir: Playlist: February 27th, 2009, Gypsie et la Fleur, live!

This week’s guests Gypsie et la Fleur are also in Vancouver, and available for gigs, Venetian gondola serenades, fabulous rooftop garden-parties, and other romantic events of your invention. Contact them up!
http://www.myspace.com/gypsieetlafleur

Playlist:
Artist — Song – (sorry for the lack of documentation this episode.)

* Mirah – Light the Match
* Jacobson/Milojevic/Ip – Tango (“Whistler’s Spirit.”)
* Gypsie et la Fleur (live!) – Libertango (Piazzolla)
* Gotan Project – Una Musica Brutal

* Gypsie et la Fleur – Blow
* Tango Paradiso (composed by Budge Schacte) – Tango de Gaia
* Quartango (composed by Julien Plata) – Nocturna
* Thomas Fersen – Ou Trouver des Fleurs on Lundi Soir Apres Mindit

This episode’s cover is Elise and Mike being silly – who’s the Gypsie and who’s la Fleur?

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2009-04-03: the Best of (the first) MySpace 5000!

March 18, 2019

acco hero

We’ve got to further rejigger the overall sequence of things, because the odds of this episode’s subject ever again being timelier than it is right now are close to nil.  Accordion Noir jumped on social media early and worked it exhaustively, using MySpace specifically to network extensively with accordion bands around the world.  To celebrate our achieving the castle-made-of-sand milestone of 5000 MySpace accordion friends (we can still remember our first MySpace friend, the NYC band Golem), we painstakingly pieced together episode number 122 of our radio program, consisting exclusively of music sourced and tediously extracted from MySpace accounts.  As we have just learned, this radio recording now may be the only place you can hear much of this music, as MySpace just owned up to having accidentally thrown out a dozen years’ worth of its user-uploaded content.  But us, we never throw out anything.  At its original online home (broken, but still up online — better than MySpace!) this episode achieved a high-water mark of 10599 listens, and you can hear it today (and hopefully forever) at its new online home at the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2019-03-13: AccordioNational Women with Meg Carsience

Here’s a photo from Meg Carsience for the thumbnail doo dah. Her photography is at:

Bruce has a breath of fresh air in his radio curation.  He pumped it there with his own accordion, which he is now learning to play — the final untapped frontier after closing the book on writing the instrument’s history.  So last night’s episode of our program has some hot new recordings from various sources, with a bias (this week at least, but one we try to generally reflect in our festival curation) toward female composers and performers.  (Last year he rode that theme for over a month!)  In any case, you can enjoy listening to it online as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2019-03-06: As We Go Marching

March 7, 2019

pic_accordionshrimp.jpg

Last night’s episode of Accordion Noir radio is now posted online for the enjoyment of remote and time-shifted listeners!  There doesn’t seem to be a concrete scheme informing the song selections… Bruce airing scattered samplings of various traditions always means that we can blindly grope at something going on in the world — look, Clifton Chenier and his Red Hot Louisiana Band, happy Mardi Gras! — but as always, it’s a good mix, with this and that plucked out of disparate cultures and thrown down together in the stew pot (or if you prefer, a gumbo.)  You can hear it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive, and now … here’s its playlist!
