A beautiful droning composition by the Russian-German composer Alfred Schnittke.
It’s amazing to think that Ian Curtis died 36 years ago. Time truly flies. Some New Order for my dear friends.
Sorry but I’m still in vintage mode, been listening to this lot a fair bit these last few days – blame Vukovar – they may be their natural heirs, this oft overlooked silently majestic humbler is ‘lonesome tonight’ which achieved a remarkable feat in our gaff of out playing its quite perfect A side ‘thieves like us’ back in the day mainly for a moment of sonic divinity that stirs at the 2.57 mark where the silken synth swathes softly ascend in celestial formations…
Here’s something you don’t see every day – cheesecake mixed with academic experimental music. I expect this out of Nurse With Wound or Whitehouse, but Serbian composer Vladan Radovanović ends up having his work associated with rather interesting fare from a long-past hi-fi era.
If you didn’t have enough with my podcast, here’s a bit of prog to hold you over until next Sunday.
This broadcast is dedicated to Keith Emerson.

Lithuanian composer Pēteris Vasks should be regarded by his countrymen as a national treasure.
Tranquil, dubby ambient music from a group I came across on Bandcamp. Expect lots more Bandcamp treasures here.
As usual, the best tracks tend to come from out of nowhere. Take Sewa Kaffo for example. This Polish band combines jazz and world music easily, and blends traditional Western instruments with kora and tabla. A truly engaging listen.
