Accordion Noir playlist 2017-09-01: taking over Sound Resistance for festival purposes

September 1, 2017

Anonymous-Accordion-Player-during-Turkey-protests-X-post-from-ranonymous-Imgur.jpg

When Bruce came to Co-op Radio he needed to learn how to program and operate to equip himself with the skills needed to make Accordion Noir Radio happen.  Then, because every show needs two operators in the event of illness or absence, Rowan needed to get equipped with that training also.  But what we discovered is that training for one show was often transferable to other shows, and during an epoch of underemployment Rowan often held down the sound board on such CFRO programs as People’s Health Radio, Wax Poetic, No Apologies Necessary, and of course the Friday morning mainstay Sound Resistance, which he inherited from his bandeader Dr. Joey Only when he skipped down indefinitely.  Rowan’s guidelines were that Sound Resistance was for featuring political, Canadian, folk music … or best two outta three.  But once a year, when the Accordion Noir Festival rolled around, he would remember his first fundamental radio fealty, and bend the rules to grant his pet project some prime-time airwaves so as to more effectively conduct Accordion Noir Fest outreach to new, unconquered audiences.  Rowan’s successor, Jodi, was out of town this week, so Bruce took over — and redecorated the place with an accordion theme!  (Not at first, though.  Bruce told Rowan: I’m back in town!  I’ve made a great playlist of anti-Trump and flood songs for tomorrow morning!  Rowan sez: great, anything to promote our festival? Bruce: … hold on, I need to revise it a little bit.)  It’s not all Accordion Noir Fest music — though quite a bit of it is.  It’s not all political — though much of it is.  It’s not all accordion… but mostly it is.  The two shows partially meld into each others’ formats, as they are after all on the same wavelength.

Enough ancient history!  Here, for a limited time you can enjoy listening to … a portion of the 90-minute program as a digital audio stream, or you can get the whole whang dang doodle as a downloadable MP3.  Now here’s the playlist of this unlikely (yet strangely inevitable) radio chimera:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2017-08-30: Festive Squeezing

September 1, 2017

accordions.jpg

This week, Accordion Noir Radio had a focus on a local accordion festival. But oh no, it’s not entirely what you think! You see, we’re not the only ones on the squeezy beat here in the Pacific Northwest. (We’re not even the only ones in BC, though there’s not huge overlap between our new wave angle and the other one’s old guard approach. But I digress.) While the 10th annual Accordion Noir Festival starts next week, the 2nd annual Port Townsend “Deep Squeeze” begins… tonight! We profiled both festivals, playing a great mix of participating acts. The first half shone the spotlight on the Deep Squeeze … we will have further opportunities to broadcast the virtues of Accordion Noir. (Indeed, we do so, weekly! And sometimes we sprawl… in fact, we hijacked another CFRO radio program just this morning for a bonus 90 minutes of self-promotion. You’ll be seeing it up here very soon.)  For a change, rather than talk about how great we are, we rebroadcast clips from a feature spot that had aired the previous day on CBC’s On The Coast, and let Andrea Warner and Gloria Macarenko do the gushing on our behalf.  Radio art!

Anyhow, you can enjoy that broadcast for a limited time as a digital audio stream, or for keeps as an MP3 download from the Internet Archive!  Now, before we get to the playlist, here’s the Deep Squeeze’s poster to soften you up and get you in the mood…

The Creaking Planks – Accordion Noir theme (after Andy Fielding)
Rhubarb Whiskey – Birch Bones
Antti Paalanen – Acc Rider
Tangoheart Cuartet – Loca
Alternators – Viva El Westside
Tsunami Pinata – Weed Mercantile Waltz
Those Darn Accordions – Hippie With A Banjo
Geoff Berner – Super Subtle Folk Song
Antti Paalanen – Meluta
Iva Nova – Salome
Button & String – Everything I Own Is Greasy
Hearse – Sunshine
Antti Paalanen – Kraftsman
Iva Nova – Signals

You know that dopey feeling when you can’t find a copy of your own festival’s poster online at a reasonable resolution?  Fortunately there’s a print copy at hand you can find at the back of the latest issue of the Columbia Journal, hot off the presses!

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-08-31: Giddy Good Show

August 28, 2017

cj-chenier

Here’s what we were broadcasting ten years ago: it’s episode number 39 of Accordion Noir Classic, from way back on August 31st, 2007!  Did it include CJ Chenier, Clifton’s son, in the playlist?  No, it did not.  Did Bruce associate this image with the recording for aspirational reasons?  Sure, why not — CJ cuts a fine figure with his boogie suit and its critical accessory!  At its original online home the episode was tracked as having logged 22804 listens to online listeners … while the numbers are quite frankly a bit hard to believe, there you have it.  And here: have it!  We’re still offering it up online for the enjoyment of future generations (and indeed, future civilizations) of accordion enthusiasts — you can download it as an MP3 here and to sweeten the pot, here’s its playlist so you can learn about what you’re hearing!

Here we are, friends, up to Accordion Noir Radio episode number 38, from way back on August 24th, 2007.  Over the past decade it’s been enjoyed… rather a lot!  The ticker counts 15297 listens at its original online home, and we hope that it will continue to delight thousands more of the teeming masses at its new host at the Internet Archive, where you can download it as an MP3.  There’s no particular rhyme or reason to this particular 10-year-old playlist — Bruce characterises it as unusually random, but really you can say that of most of our broadcasts.  Diversity is our specialty!  Here’s the playlist so you can learn a little bit about what your ears are telling you…

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2017-08-16: Death, Smoke & Tears

August 17, 2017

'It doesn't seem that bad. Listen, he's playing our song.'

Greetings from Accordion Noir!  We’re well into our tenth year broadcasting on the air and preparations are ramping up for the tenth installment of our annual festival… as long as the world doesn’t end in the next month.  Sometimes it feels as though it might.  As if all the sabre-rattling with North Korea this week hadn’t been enough, a sickening cake iced with the terrorist killing in Charlottesville, Bruce suffered a death in his family and the culmination of all this doom and gloom put him in a particular frame of mind for programming the playlist of this week’s episode.  (A frame of mind he got the opportunity to explore in depth, as we temporarily took over the time slot of the preceding show, Soundscape, for a double-length, two-hour broadcast this week.)

For the time being, you can listen to this week’s monumental broadcast as a digital audio stream (here’s the first hour, and here’s the second), or if you prefer (we prefer) it’s available as an MP3 download from the Internet Archive all in one big squeezy clot.  Now here, to enhance your listening experience, is the substantial playlist describing the contents of its strange sonic territory:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-08-17: Live with Mark Berube!

August 14, 2017

what-the-river-gave-the-boatTen years ago I was still in and out of town on the road playing weird little gigs throughout Western Canada with the Joey Only Outlaw Band, but after we migrated to our pre-midnight time slot, when possible I would hook Bruce up with live guests to join him on the show.  Here, for Accordion Noir Radio episode number 37 back on August 17, 2007, he was joined by then-local angel-voiced singer-songwriter Mark Berube, generously giving us four live squeezy performances of songs from his album “What the river gave the boat”.  The episode was enjoyed 3590 times at its original online home and we hope it continues getting enjoyed by Berube devotees over at its new host at the Internet Archive.  Here, to help enrich your archival listening experience, you can refer to the episode’s playlist:
