Several months ago I’m returning home from Amoeba. As usual, it’s late and Nocturna is on KCRW. The tune spinning across LA is called “Swimming Places” by Julian Jabre. I find it that night on eBay and place an order. It arrives a few days later, warped, but still playable, from a record shop in Ashville, NC. I long to play it live somehow, but my most recent Amoeba set doesn’t provide an opportunity. Then last Wednesday I pack it along with me to Carbon, but the moment just never arrives. So finally, I find an abbreviated version on a recent “Destination Lounge” compilation that I can offer up on this blog. So here you go.
And you’ll notice I’m testing out a new embedded media player for simplicty and elegance. Enjoy.
