Disco Volante, Seasons Reverse


Greetings True Believers!

Welcome to my new weekly music post, Disco Volante! Every Thursday I’ll be posting a new mp3 podcast mix, featuring pop music from a wide variety of genres and sources – jazz, funk, underground hip hop, indie rock, and whatever else I can throw in there, you’ll have to listen to find out.

In the spirit of transitions and new things, we’re starting off our first podcast with The Seasons Reverse by Gastr Del Sol.

Founded in 1991 by Chicago luminaries David Grubbs and Jim O’Rourke, Gastr Del Sol produced seven albums of wonderfully weird indie rock, ranging from utter noise to glitchy electronica to genteel chamber pop, and featured a rotating cast of semi-famous back up musicians, including Markus Pop of Oval and John McIntire of Tortoise.

The Seasons Reverse is a great example of the group at its most melodic and comes from their last album, Camoufleur (Drag City 1998).

Thanks to David Von Shmavid and Orange Zest for being our gracious hosts and remember to tune in next Thursday for another edition of Disco Volante.

Excelsior!
