Nick Luscombe with a Jim O'Rourke mixtape

Former member of Sonic Youth, Jim O'Rourke compiles a 30-minute mixtape. Nick celebrates 10 years of the psych-rock label Fruits De Mer plus Indian electronica from Disco Puppet.

The latest Late Junction mixtape is compiled by the great Jim O'Rourke, a former member of Sonic Youth whose huge discography also includes: solo albums of avant-rock, electronica, and free improvisation; music for Merce Cunningham's dance company; experimental film soundtrack work; and production duties for artists such as Joanna Newsom, Stereolab, and Wilco. Long associated with the Chicago experimental scene, he currently resides in Japan. O'Rourke has a famously, exhaustively wide knowledge of music across genres. Tonight his selection concentrates on his favourite composers, including Luc Ferrari, George Friedrich Haas, and Daniel Lentz.

Nick also celebrates 10 years of the psych-rock record label Fruits De Mer and there's music from the Indian electronic artist Disco Puppet.

Produced by Rebecca Gaskell for Reduced Listening.
