I don't know where you are in the world or what time of day you are listening to this show but right now, for me, it is a rainy Saturday afternoon in San Diego.
It doesn't rain often in San Diego but it's perfect because it fits my mood and my mood is a foul mood. No particular reason for it. Just the usual hassle of dealing with a quotidian life. But putting today's show put me in a better mood.
You know, usually I have to wade through a lot of crap to find tracks that I think are worth listening to on solipsistic NATION. The last few weeks have been remarkable because I've come across a lot of great music. More so than usual.
In a lot of way today's show reminds me of my days spinning at WMFO. I'd come in 45-60 minutes before my show, grab a stack of new albums and CDs I had pulled and quickly scan through them in one of our spare studios. Some how I'd manage to hang a show together from all the songs that I felt were listening to.

If you've listened to solipsistic NATION for a while then you know the first Friday of each month I feature a live set from an electronic musician. It's a lot of fun and recently we've had some great performances from Kilowatts, iambic and Exillon. What began as a one time segment has become a regular feature on solipsistic NATION.
And that takes us to today's show which caused a minor dilemma for me.
A few months I asked Brendan Angelides, who records and performs under the names Eskmo and Welder, if he'd like to be a guest on the show. Brendan was kind enough to send me a link to one of his mind blowing mixes. I couldn't wait to play it on the show.
When I arrange my interview with Brenda I discovered is... kind of live. Live in the sense that his mixed the set in his studio. By this point I had already promoted his show on solipsistic NATION and didn't have enough time to set up an interview with another musician and feature one of their live sets. …
