AGNES OBEL
Santa Monica 2020 [no label, 1CD]

KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic. Annenberg Performance Space, Santa Monica, CA; February 20, 2020. Very good FM broadcast. Interview
by Chris Douridas.

Agnes Obel’s music has captivated our attention since the release of her debut album in 2010. Her fifth album, Myopia, is a dazzling display of layered vocals with themes of trust and doubt. We’ll hear new tracks and her conversation with KCRW DJ Chris Douridas.

On February 21, 2020, Danish singer, songwriter, and musician Agnes Obel released her fourth studio album, Myopia.

“I wanted to depict that sense of being trapped within a state of mind with very little peripheral vision, where what is left to be seen only gets increasingly intensified,” she said. This intricately crafted album captures that feeling profoundly. The entire album inhabits that desolate place of twilight solitude, and forces its listener into a mode of introspection. It’s a record to experience alone. With the exception of “Drosera”, and its tritone dissonance and eerie flutes that recall the score to a horror film, there’s a comfort to being pulled into Myopia’s contemplative, isolating territory. - Elisa Bray, independent.co.uk

  8. All You White Power cunts most likely have Nigger blood…true biological fact. Plus, Jesus was a Jew, so unless you hate Jesus (or love Muhammad), you are probably worshiping and following a Jew. And best of all, your beloved Fuhrer was a Parkinson’s Disease riddled midget who died crying in a bunker - blowing his tiny head off because he was too much of a pussy to stand up to the Allies.

    By Adolfo Hitler on Mar 26, 2020

  9. I’m with (the real) Derrick on this one.

    More Zep, please.

  10. Hatred - Poem by Wislawa Szymborska

    See how efficient it still is,
    how it keeps itself in shape—
    our century’s hatred.
    How easily it vaults the tallest obstacles.
    How rapidly it pounces, tracks us down.

    It’s not like other feelings.
    At once both older and younger.
    It gives birth itself to the reasons
    that give it life.
    When it sleeps, it’s never eternal rest.
    And sleeplessness won’t sap its strength; it feeds it.

    By Billy on Mar 27, 2020

  11. One religion or another -
    whatever gets it ready, in position.
    One fatherland or another -
    whatever helps it get a running start.
    Justice also works well at the outset
    until hate gets its own momentum going.
    Hatred. Hatred.
    Its face twisted in a grimace
    of erotic ecstasy…

    Hatred is a master of contrast-
    between explosions and dead quiet,
    red blood and white snow.
    Above all, it never tires
    of its leitmotif - the impeccable executioner
    towering over its soiled victim.

    By Billy on Mar 27, 2020

  12. It’s always ready for new challenges.
    If it has to wait awhile, it will.
    They say it’s blind. Blind?
    It has a sniper’s keen sight
    and gazes unflinchingly at the future
    as only it can.

    By Billy on Mar 27, 2020

  13. Someone give Mark/ Billy a qualude and some Valium. He’s getting too exited these days ..

    By HHH on Mar 27, 2020

  14. Derrick and Antichrist (the real ones) the nuts are trying to take over the asylum. All the people signing off as you guys and me too . The black ape and coon lovers are probably behind this . Don’t let them keep you down. Smart people I’m sure can tell who’s really who.

    By HHH on Mar 27, 2020

  15. They don’t get me down triple h . Dic suckin jew bastards all . Like you said anybody with fuckin brain should know who is and who ain’t us

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  16. Hey Anti , was watching on you tube some of them old Dean Martin celebrity roasts . Funny as shit especially Don Rickles . Folks called Jew bastards kikes , coons like Sammy Davis niggers and wops like Sinatra and dean Dagos . Freddie Prinze used to do them shows too and did spick jokes . That shit would never be on tv today

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  17. Rickles told Sammy , you are either a nigger or you fell in a box of MnMs1975 that’s funny . 2020 your career is fuckin ruined

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  18. Well, I’m not going to convince you I’m not Billy any more than you’ll convince me Derrick/Anti/HHH/David Duke etc… are not the same person.

    Any intelligent person can see the similarities between the Derrick alias posts and the Mark and Billy posts.

    It is also obvious that I won’t be convincing you to forsake your irrational hatred and bigotry any more than you will convince me to join your warped, pathetic fears and hatreds of Jews and blacks.

    We just live in different worlds- I see people as individuals and you see threats behind every corner and in every shadow. While I for bad for you having to be so afraid of everyone who doesn’t look, think, and speak like you, it’s a world you have made for yourself.

    So, keep crying about how you wish the world was as hateful and bigoted as you are, and I’ll keep on taking people one at a time, as they really are.

    By Mark on Mar 27, 2020

  19. Mark,

    You’re a self-righeous, sanctimonious, condescending waste of space.

    And (I suspect) you’re Billy too.

    BG

    By Brian Griffin on Mar 27, 2020

  20. Thanks Brian , however now Mark / Billy will probably add your name to his list of people he thinks are one and the same .

    By HHH on Mar 27, 2020

  21. He can’t fathom the notion that people can share beliefs that don’t mirror his .

    By HHH on Mar 27, 2020

  22. It sounds to me like the main complaint is black guys poking white chicks . Well I have a problem with that too . Guess I’m another bigot.

    By John on Mar 27, 2020

  23. Billy and mark , don’t know if they is the same or different fuckers . I do know that they is definitely motherfuckin Dic suckin jew bastards

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  24. They need to get what Joe pesci got in casino

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  25. Baseball bats , broke bones , dumped in shallow graves , screaming as they is buried alive as the shovels of dirt is poured

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  26. Right Anti ?

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  27. Ah, the lower intelligence bullies resort to wishing violence against anyone who stands up to them. It is more evidence that their minds and lives are fear-based.

    I, on the other hand, am secure and intelligent enough to not wish them harm.

    By Mark on Mar 27, 2020

  28. The Pesci solution for Mark

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  29. That’s better than tar and feathers and a high tree limb

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  30. That’s what the men in the white sheets would do to him

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  31. Anti? Where are ya man???

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  32. Derrick I’m right here.

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  33. Oops, I accidently typed the wrong name again. No wait. Derrick typed my wrong name. No wait. Jesus I’m losing it.

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Mar 27, 2020

  34. Right, Anti?

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Mar 27, 2020

  35. Using other people’s names is gonna cost you big. I’m fixin to get all you assholes banned!

    By Derrick on Mar 27, 2020

  36. I’m fixin to get all the evil, violent, disgusting racists banned. I think that includes you Derrick.

    By Coon Daddy on Mar 27, 2020

  37. In fact, Derrick - I’m fixin to get you personally investigated by the FBI for your threats of physical violence against users that have been posting here. You may THINK you are anonymous here but you are not. Better get your affairs in order. It shouldn’t take long considering all the vile threats you have posted here against law abiding citizens. Fool.

    By Coon Daddy on Mar 27, 2020

  38. The FBI would probably assume that this shit posted is either by bored middle schoolers and or escapees from a mental institution.

    By Tom on Mar 27, 2020

  39. Just do away with the stupid comments dumbasses !

    By Tom on Mar 27, 2020

  40. Yes , I agree , why can’t you access shows without reading what idiots have to say ? And that includes everyone.

    By Thomas on Mar 27, 2020

  41. Derrick , I also liked the Dean Martin roasts . No way that would make it to the airways today in this fucked up PC world . Same with all in the family , Jefferson’s , Sanford and Son , good times etc . You could also date women back then without fear of being in fear of harassment accusations, and rape if she got pissed off for some reason.

    By HHH on Mar 27, 2020

  42. These days if you ask for a date or compliment a woman on her looks or a dress , that can get you jail time ,

    By HHH on Mar 27, 2020

  43. Tom, I seriously doubt the FBI will look at this as a joke: “Derrick, we would make this Billy suffer so much pain and torture just like what we did to the niggers. we would string him up just enough so he wouldnt choke but at the same time we all takes turns slicing different body parts. start with the ears, maybe poke an eyeball out. saw off the hands and feet. then raise him lil higher and start a fire while he’s still alive. WE did that to so many coons.

    By David Duke on Mar 24, 2020″

    This comment board is swimming with these kind of serious threats to law abiding citzen. It must be stopped and the perpetrators found and brought to justice.

    By Coon Daddy on Mar 27, 2020

  44. Thanks BigO, this looks really interesting. I won’t be commenting anymore because I can’t stand all the racism and sexiest comments. Still love the music, will still download to enjoy the music, but I can’t stand the maniac comments. All the best to you
