The Mess Debuts Damh’s Wicker Man Single

Sunday the 5th of January brought what we believe to be a first on Murphy’s Magic Mess, the US debut of Damh the Bard’s newest single, The Wicker Man. Released to the public on the 3rd, to the best of our knowledge the Mess was the first terrestrial radio show to play this wonderful single from British Pagan/Druid recording artist Damh the Bard. You can listen to and purchase the single here.

I enjoyed teasing Murf and Kate, as well as the listeners, with hints at what was in store late in the show. Along with Damh’s single we also played a lot of new New Age music from artists like Kristin Amarie, Yang Yiing, Timothy Wenzel, Steven Vitali, Masako and Dan Chadburn. In the second half of the show we brought you new music from SJ Tucker, Wendy Rule and of course Damh the Bard. Along the way we played classic pieces from Inanna, Ubaka Hill and Lesiem. So much more. Check out the play list below for a full listing of the music.

MP: Rock It, Pagan Style pt 1 & 2

Click to Listen, pt 1 – Pt 2 available here.

Well now, would seem that RevKess has been even more neglectful of things than usual.  It has been some time since he did an edition of Musica Pagani. He’s making it up for it the best he can with a two parter: Rock It, Pagan Style!

Earlier in 2013, Kenny Klein launched a recording project with his touring band FishBird. Some of the music they did was rock-like covers of some of his older music. And of course, every good musician is experimenting with new pieces whenever possible. That’s just what FishBird has done.

In this two parter of Musica Pagani you will get a taste of FishBird as well as some other rocking musicians and bands with a distinctive Pagan flare. Everyone from Leigh Anne Hussey with her unreleased Uglytown demo to Wendy Rule and Rosin Coven, with stops along the way to visit with Omnia and Frenchy and the Punk.

We do hope that you have enjoyed this special edition of Musica Pagani!

Murphy’s Magic Mess for 11 August 2013

MysteriesOfHeavenIt was another one of those lovely tracking weeks at KZUM. Not that big of a deal, after having done it for so long. Still a bit of a headache as we have to get start and finish times, record labels and the like. Oh, well. Makes it a bit more of a challenge and quite educational.

Phil cut’n’pasted the Artist, Track, and CD  Title frames from the spread sheet he used, so things look a little different. We hope that you can still figure everything out okay. The format is the same as usual, just not numbered.
