077: Opposite Numbers (Jon Averill)

This podcast was made in waiting rooms at Lower Clapton Group Practice & The Royal Free Hospital between 2017 & 2018.


1. Tale Of Us – Ricordi
Our opening track (underpinned by some recordings of London's Royal Free Hospital) comes from 2017s piano-led album Endless

2. Photay - Outré Lux
From Photay's album Onism which boasts a mix of rich harmonic & timbral evolutions, field recordings, off-kilter vocalizations & impeccable sound design.

3. Hauschka - Wonder
Volker Bertelmann is a German pianist & composer who might be best known for his soundtrack to the Baltasar Kormákur film Adrift. I much prefer this side of his work however, this track taken from the excellent Live At Robert Johnson Volume 8 compilation.

5. Melly – Shrubbery
Dublin's Mel Keane is fast becoming one of my favourite new producers. This release is forthcoming on the equally great Major Problems label.

5. E Saggila - Assisting God
Things take a turn towards the dark & claustrophobic with E Saggila aka Rita Mikhael who co-runs Summer Isle Records.

6. Ryan Teague - End Of The Line
Bristol's Ryan Teague treads a similar path to contemporaries Portico Quartet, Ólafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm.

7. Mücha – South Ends
I met Amanda, aka Mücha long before she even mentioned she was a producer.
Let alone a great one. This is taken from her latest release Misc. Works.

8. Visible Cloaks – Wind Voices
Visible Cloaks are probably my favourite band at the moment. Also known for their sublime Fairlights, Mallets & Bamboo mixes which discloses their main influences; super clean FM synth based music from 1980s Japan.

9. Sign Libra - Outro/Oophaga Pumilio
Sign Libra is Agata Melnikova, who according to her bio focuses on the exploration of nature & its auspicious influence on human's imagination & emotional balance. & you should too.

10. Georges Delerue – Capri
Beautiful piece of music from the soundtrack to Jean-Luc Godard's "Le Mépris. I'm almost certain I've used this before in a podcast.

11. RUI HO - Becoming Is An Eventful Situation (Intro)
Berlin-based Chinese producer RUI HO makes electronic music that attempts to bridge modern club influences with traditional Chinese sounds.

12. Biologic - Crystal violet
This is from a great collection called Sampler 06: Quality Electronic Music on AI Records which I bought in 2006 & never got a chance to include in a podcast, until now.

13. Alessandro Cortini – Perdonare
Cortini produces work in a lot of varying styles – this release is from a more personal album, Avanti. Inspired by Super 8 home videos from his youth.

14. Exuma – You Don't Know What's Going On
A sort of epilogue for the podcast. Taken from the debut record from righteous Afro-Bahamian songwriter Macfarlane Gregory Anthony Mackey, aka Exuma from back in 1970.

This entire podcast was made in waiting rooms, this track may or may not be a comment on the level of healthcare received.
