Frosty w/ guest Harry Taussig – Celsius Drop
Here it is, highly honed and happening for YOU. On his weekly Celsius Drop show, dublab co-founder Frosty guides you through an exploration of the vast Future Roots music spectrum. Tune-in to grasp your destiny.
This week Frosty welcomes Harry Taussig onto the show for a live performance and conversation. Taussig is a physicist, artist and musician who has emerged from the edges to become a visible force in the now. He is an outlier steeped in the American Primitive Guitar sound who has carved a path all his own. The good folks at Tompkins Square in their typically fine form have championed his music and made it available for your ears. Now at 75 years young, Taussig is brilliantly lighting up the world with his singular guitar style.
Fifty years ago, Harry Taussig and Max Ochs were featured on a sampler LP, ‘Contemporary Guitar – Spring ’67’, alongside John Fahey, Robbie Basho, and Bukka White. Both guitarists were “re-discovered” by Tompkins Square in 2005, and have since released new recordings for the label.
On May 26th, Tompkins Square will release ‘The Music of Harry Taussig & Max Ochs’ featuring newly recorded material, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Takoma sampler they first appeared on. The pair will also meet for the first time and play select shows on the West Coast. The May 28th concert in Berkeley will also feature Tompkins Square recording artist Richard Osborn, a student of the late Robbie Basho.

Jimmy Tamborello – Dying Songs
“Dying Songs” focuses on melancholic electronic music but isn’t limited to that. Sometimes it gets dark, sometimes I try to mix techno awkwardly, sometimes i get nostalgic… I like stuff that’s dreamy, ghostly, pretty and sad. I’ll try out new productions of my own, as well. I’m keeping it pretty open and we’ll see how it evolves.” – Jimmy Tamborello
2:00pm – 4:00pm

As part of the new age duo Sneaky Snake, Jensen participated in Knowledges at Mount Wilson Observatory, performing a 3-hour quadraphonic piece during a public viewing of Saturn through the 60-ft telescope. During Dublab’s Tonalism in August 2014, Jensen and his musical collaborator Tim Phillips performed a sunrise quad set as Phillips & Jensen, and Phillips & Jensen’s cassette Patra was recently released through Austin’s Holodeck Records.

Induce – Dancing, Thinking Loving, Listening
It all started with these words from Induce, “Bout to get on and play some weird stuff @dublab till about 4. Tune in!” Then the lightning split the sky and all the sounds from the dublab studio on this oblate spheroid called Planet Earth were pulled into the cosmos in a single beam of high lumen energy. From this newly elevated point they hit the universal prism of memory reflection and were split throughout the wide universe. We’re happy you got your radio attuned to Induce’s transmission. Whether you’re hearing this 2 billion years from now or simply right now we know you’ll enjoy the “weird stuff” being offered.
