Here it is again, the year end-stravaganza.

As ever, right out the gate, we have some KUOI DJ lists of music. Everyone here was or is a DJ and every entrant was given as much breathing room as they desired in constructing their lists. These lists are chock-full of fantastic music from a fantastic year, hand picked by people who know and love their music. Thanks for reading, enjoy, and stay tuned for at least one more holiday gift from your awkward uncles that only show up around the holidays here at KUOI Blog.

KUOI Station ID – Thurston Moore

Once in a while, we’ll put up a KUOI station ID for you to enjoy.  Most will be recent, but we’ll see what we can dig up from the archives.

To kick things off, here’s one from Thurston Moore.  When I was getting the ID, I asked him if he could namecheck any obscure punk bands from Idaho.  It was a bit too early in the morning and he couldn’t think of any.  (Pink Eyes was able to, but we’ll save that for another post.)

While we’re on the subject, be sure to request Sonic Youth’s ‘Simon Werner a Disparu’ soundtrack that’s on the new music shelf.  208.885.6392

Show Review – SWANS @ Neumo’s

KUOI DJ John Sonnen went to Seattle on Feb. 26 to see SWANS at Neumo’s.  He did a write up of it for all of us to enjoy.  And be sure to check out John’s show, Truly Great Thing Sundays from 3:00 – 5:30 PM Pacific Time.  (The title of Mr. Sonnen’s show is no hyperbole, it truly is a TRULY GREAT THING.)

An Unreliable Account of Swans’ Performance at Neumos in Seattle, WA on February 26, 2011.

by Johnathan Sonnen

The crowd was still talking and the between-set music had yet to be turned off when the first note began – a single, high-pitched frequency that grew in amplitude for several minutes before being joined by another. The musicians let the sounds evolve, increasing volume from offstage until the swerving drones drowned out all conversation. Then the first percussionist entered and began to pound out a repetitious dulcimer pattern, a lone clanging that grew organically with the drones that preceded it until a second percussionist came in to add a similar series of bells to the clamor.
