ringsofsaturn-featured Space Music: ∆ICASEA Select 031, Moons of Saturn

In our podcast episode “Saturn’s Brood: Beyond the Outer Ring,” we mention a fabulous space music mix featuring fantastic retro-documentary narration about the Saturnian moons. As promised, I share it with you now. It’s a 2012 mix from UK artists

controlledbleeding-feature Space Music: Varied Sounds of Controlled Bleeding

I love a rich, varied discography — especially in the age of Spotify. There’s a sense of sonic archeology to the whole process, and the journey is all the more rewarding when it’s an established act you’ve simply never explored

SDC-featured Space Music: Space Dimension Controller

Space Dimension Controller (AKA Jack Hamill) has given us such a lovely dose of space music in “Orange Melamine.” It’s an album full of light synth elegance, glitching drum beats and cascades of VHS-era electronic dream. You know, so it’s

grimes-featured Space Music: The ‘Dune’ Music of Grimes

Following our previous “Science of Dune” podcast episodes, I shared a few different musical selections inspired by Frank Herbert’s “Dune.” Since that time, I’ve embraced the synth-pop styling of Grimes — particularly her albums “Art Angels” (2015) and “Visions” (2011)

I don’t feature a lot of rock here on Space Music, but I have to highlight some recent material by Black Mountain. The Canadian quintet has been cranking out their unique brand of rock-and-roll for over 10 years now, but
