5 O'Clock Shadow 11-25-14: "The Wreck of Edmund Fitzgerald."

I'd HEARD the original countless times, but I never quite paid attention to the lyrics as a child, only making the historical connection watching a diving/recovery show on some cable channel that I realized this actually happened. The story is horrifying - 35 foot waves, lost at sea 17 miles from land - so much so that the Gordon Lightfoot version actually sounds too placid and serene. The Dandy Warhols cover sound like it was recorded inside the hull of a sinking ship. It's muddy, loud, and weird.

11/22/14 -- This episode of XFADER features one of my favorite DJs ever... Mr. Oizo.  The French producer has been dropping critically acclaimed records for years, yet has remained a bit more of an underground icon compared to his Parisain contemporaries like Daft Punk and Justice.  A while back, Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder imprint re-issued Mr Oizo‘s underrated ’05 album Moustache (Half a Scissor) , and now he  returns to the label with a brand new record entitled The Church.  I’ve got his new one, plus some of my favorite Mr Oizo tracks ready for you in this next mix.
