TKS Presents: ‘2014Retro Pts 1+2’ tracklists

A small and not particularly neat stack of Cds sit on the floor to my left; if I looked closely, I might make out a thin layer of dust coating the top cover…..Yep, it’s been a long time since the two programmes presenting sonic highlights from 2014 were broadcast, so long that it’s now feeling rather springlike in South Moravia and the following could appear rather redundant; however, some people do love lists, and all the albums featured on the two shows are deserving of as much recognition as possible, and the Cds really need to be put on the shelves before being buried beneath other piles, hence:

Two programmes, twenty tracks, and still many highlights from 2014 had to be left out, which draws one to the conclusion that the year just gone was a pretty darned good one for music! Hopefully 2015 will provide as many gems, both in the way of new music and through reissues of previously-neglected albums. Thanks this time are due to Stephen Jarvis for the Nagamatzu and the folks at Aquarius Records in San Francisco, whose ecstatic reviews have led to the discovery of at least a couple of the albums listed above –‘The Red Day Album’ being a prime example!
Til next time, wish you all many a sonic delight, S.

The Kitchen Sink broadcasts on Brno community/student radio Radio R – – every Monday at around 10 p.m CET/9 p.m UK.
