From HEM site:

Watch Michael Pisaro speak in the studio about DJ Screw and the process of composing ‘Tombstones.’ 

[vimeo:https://vimeo.com/18767812%5D

A live in-studio recording of “Fool” (based on a DJ-Screw / UGK track) follows the interview. Julia Holter, Janet Kim and Lisa Tolentino contribute vocals.

Tombstones’ was designed and hand-silkscreened by Berlin artist Adam Raymont, each ‘Tombstones’ sleeve is printed in white ink on transparent vellum. The delicate image, a cloud of smoke patterns excited by a sound wave, is printed negative and positive on the front and the back, respectively. When the two sides are aligned around the transparent vinyl, a unique, ghostly effect occurs.

Modeselektor- Monkeytown album cover

Got a great show planned for you tonight, so make sure you tune in to 91.3FM WBNY at 10pm for another episode of the Upstate Soundscape.

We’ll hear some interesting new stuff from ambient artists Devin Underwood and Marcus Fischer and a colloborative album they did together called Correspond. We’ll also check out a new and very challenging release from Rochester label Cae-sur-a by Novoe Tsarstvo and take a listen to one of the new Modselektor tracks that features Radiohead’s Thom Yorke on vocals.

Julia Holter

Also got a solid block of great ethereal electronic sounds lined up from some of the leading ladies in experimental music including Grouper, Julianna Barwick, Laural Halo, Stacian, and Julia Holter.

And if we have time, we’ll check out some really cool stuff that popped up on the Free Music Archive this week, including a “Radio Play” recorded by Dreamcather for 90.3 FM CKUT’s ‘Montreal Sessions.’ (If we don’t get to it, I’ll post it to the blog later in the week. It’s too good to be missed).

Plenty of local stuff from Sound Shaman, Red Tag Rummage Sale, and Katastrophic lined up, too.  Show starts at 10pm on 91.3 FM WBNY. Stream at WBNY.org.
