Aquarium Drunkard: Sidecar / June 2018
Welcome to Aquarium Drunkard's bi-monthly dispatch of audio esoterica, interviews, mixtapes and cultural ephemera, presented by Gold Diggers boutique hotel, bar and recording studios in East Hollywood, Calif.
Cornelia Murr :: Tokyo Kyoto
On her debut album for Autumn Tone Records, Lake Tear of the Clouds, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Cornelia Murr follows the journey of water from the highest point in the Adirondack Mountains to the valley below and out to sea. Produced by Jim James of My Morning Jacket and featuring a Yoko Ono cover, the album touches on cosmic soul and folk, bringing to mind the Omnichord expanses of Broadcast and Stereolab, but Murr stands alone as her own creation, her songs disarmingly open and artfully realized.
Now at AD, she describes in her own words the circumstances that lead to one of the album’s highlights, “Tokyo Kyoto."

Jetlag 2 :: An Aquarium Drunkard Presentation
In 2012, we intercepted two hours of Jet Lag — the radio program hosted by Yoon Nam — which ceased airing three years ago following an inspired decade-long run on Atlanta’s 88.5 FM. Earlier this year we caught up with Nam as she put together the following two-hour mix amidst a visit to her native Korea.
...I do always think of sets as trips, both in a literal sense of taking listeners from one place to another and in a psychedelic sense.
Listen now at AD.
