A very Gong Xi Fa Cai to all our listeners this week as we wish a very belated Happy Chinese New Year to you all. This year is the Year of the Dragon and so we've chosen that as one of the themes this week. The other theme is all things new (and old) as we highlight a few of the flurry of new releases which have already popped out this year. So you can look forward to hearing tracks from a great new compilation of recordings by lost British radiophonic pioneer Fred Judd as well as new tracks from the Moon Wiring Club and Pye Corner Audio. We also have a few selections from a new compilation by Andy Votel of electro-magnetic poly-pop, robotic rock and modern day mechanical music.
Listen now (please be patient if using this new player - it takes a few seconds to start):

Also mentioned on this week's show:
Animoog for iPad and iPhone from Moog Music Inc
Animoog, powered by Moog’s new Anisotropic Synth Engine (ASE), is the first professional polyphonic synthesizer designed for the iPad. ASE allows you to dynamically move through an X/Y space of unique timbres to create a constantly evolving and expressive soundscape.
Animoog captures the vast sonic vocabulary of Moog synthesizers and applies it to the modern touch surface paradigm, enabling you to quickly sculpt incredibly fluid and dynamic sounds that live, breathe, and evolve as you play them.
Crooked Little Vein by Warren Ellis
Burned-out private dick Michael McGill needs to jump-start his career. What he gets instead is a cattle prod to the crotch. The president's heroin-addicted chief of staff wants McGill to find the Constitution—the real one the Founding Fathers secretly devised for the time of gravest crisis. And with God, civility, and Mom's homemade apple pie already dead or dying, that time is now. But McGill has a talent for stumbling into every imaginable depravity—and this case is driving him even deeper into America's darkest, dankest underbelly, toward obscenities that boggle even his mind.
