Before he performed on-air, we were dumbfounded by how Bastardgeist produced his strange, polyrhythmic experiments. We know now, they're due in no small part to a traditional kalimba and his own, unique ethereal voice. This set also features Sam from one of Airplay's favorite bands, Volcano! playing percussion. The result is futuristic and tribal at the same time, a lost project by Moondog perhaps, or the way the Dirty Projectors would sound if they powered down and rid themselves of all the non-essentials. It's was a short set, but odd and engaging, and one of our recent favs.
