MikeyPod 35 | International Festival-Institute at Round Top Soundseeing Tour

Saturday, my pal Tiffany and I went to the world famous International Festival-Institute at Round Top. I have heard amazing things about this place, but until I actually made it out there, I had no idea. I really can’t really explain what is so amazing about it. I think this first soundseeing tour captures our awe with the place quite well. We arrived early, so we did some exploration on our own.

If you can, listen to this episode with headphones on.

This show also features music by Jane Siberry and Shirley Horn.

MikeyPod 31 | The Black Math Experiement

This has got to be my favorite interview yet, and my first in “studio” interview. My favorite Houston band: The Black Math Experiment. Talking about their new release Fake Words and Signs from Space, their upcoming gig with Nina Hagen, and what it’s like to be an “über-pretentious, derivative, and utterly shitty pose-rock band.”

Every Hour Here-The Innocence Mission

We ride our bikes
around the circle in the cemetery,
weaving.
I wave up to You on the Cross.
Am I to come upon You suddenly like this forever?
Happy, relieved that You are here
and I can see You, I can feel You?

You are like the ticket-half
I find inside the pocket of
my old leaf-raking coat.
There all the time, all the while,
forgotten.
I so often seem to leave You
in churches
and other islands.
And on my beads
where I can see You, I can feel You.

I take the ticket-half
and put it on the table, saying,
This is God
and He’s here through my comings
and my goings.
But I walk past the ticket-half,
I walk past the ticket-half.
I walk past the ticket-half
just as I’ve walked past the Cross on our wall.

Our self-importance grows so dazzling we don’t see
You.
But Gentle Jesus, aren’t You always,
aren’t You every hour here?
