DEATH VALLEY RADIO 747 January 13, 2013
This week's optimistic message, courtesy of St. Vincent: "There's no room for emptiness on a never-empty street. How it is is how it oughta be."
For the rocket scientists among you, Death Valley Radio 747 features a piece inspired by a German physicist who proposed a method of faster-than-light space travel. Also: new music from Beth Orton, Bettye LaVette, Frank Ocean, the Bad Plus, New Niks, and a duo called Food recorded live in concert with Austrian guitarist Christian Fennesz and Norwegian trumpeter Nils Petter Molvær.
