6 years to the day: the one am radio at WMUC, 2003 (live on college radio)

This is the first of possibly a series called “Live on College Radio”. We’ll see if it continues. If it does, maybe I can think of a better name.

I know I’ve already been waxing nostalgic today, but the coincidence that I got this 6 years to the day from when it was recorded was too much to pass up. . .

Dozens of a bands probably play on college radio a day. Most of those performances will be broadcast once and never heard again. Even if they are archived by the station, they’ll probably be lost in the shuffle of a constantly rotating cast of DJs and staff. Honestly, we probably lose nothing by some of them disappearing forever, but there are some that deserve to be heard again.

The One AM Radio (myspace) stopped in the College of Maryland’s WMUC studios six years ago today. They played four tunes: the two below plus “Drowsy Haze” and “The House We Will Make”.

This was on their tour with the Wind Up Bird, shortly after their Split EP was released. The Hum of the Electric Air! had come out a year before and A Name Writ in Water wouldn’t come out for another year.

I’ve written before about the amazingly beautiful “All I Can Recall is the Haunting”. “Fever Dream” is a languid and more subtle song that’s no less beautiful.

Hrishi and his band have a couple tour dates in Phoenix and L.A. He also did a pretty excellent remix of Radiohead’s “Reckoner”. Work has apparently begun on demos for their next album
