Arc Waves
Thursday, August 28th, 3am - 6am
on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie

Brooklyn purveyors of dreampop with a touch of twang, Arc Waves came to visit the WFMU studio shortly after being featured in a Huffington Post music column. Singer Elaine's vocals float above guitar-heavy songs that bounce from light to dark to chaos and back again.

on
Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine
The voice and textural contributor in Batillus, member of Theologian, InSwarm, plays live with Jarboe and is a multi instrumentalist and audio engineer.

He will be live and listeners will be able to ask him questions via our live playlist and comments board!


Helado Negro
Tuesday, September 2nd, 9am - Noon
on
This Is The Modern World with Trouble
The wonderful inventive sounds of Helado Negro will take over This is the Modern World with Trouble, on Tuesday September 2. Helado Negro is that perfect equilibrium of electronic music with a foot in kraut rock, while sudsily bathed in mesmerizing loops with gorgeous melodies. This live performance is not to be missed.


Music Blues
Tuesday, September 2nd, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Stephen Tanner plays bass in the much-beloved and somewhat uncategorizable Georgia band of heavies known as Harvey Milk, these days calling Brooklyn home and whipping up all kinds of good food for public consumption therein. In 2010 he spent some downtime (as in crawling away from society) holed up at fellow Milk member Creston Spiers' Georgia abode where he wrote, played, and recorded his solo work Things Haven't Gone Well, now coming out on the Thrill Jockey label. It's touted as being a more cinematic variation of his work in Harvey Milk, though no less sludge-leaning and definitely full of some more personal imagery/life chronicling/dark issues being dealt with. He's put together a touring band for this project as well, live today on Brian's show.

Wednesday, September 3rd, 3am - 6am

A young priest named Father Tristan is posted to a remote fishing village, where he attempts to comfort the locals, who undergo a series of personal and community disasters.

Tashi Dorji + Sir Richard Bishop live from Monty Hall
Tuesday, September 9th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Tashi Dorji is Bhutan-born guitarist absorbed a childhood full of shortwave radio before moving to the US and discovering Derek Bailey and Albert Ayler and incorporating all his musical loves into a truly varied and forward-thinking vocabulary. In this era some may have chalked up the guitar to have exhausted itself as a means of breaking new boundaries in expression, yet Dorji, now in North Carolina, has wowed such advanced axemen as Bill Orcutt, Ben Chasny, and Sir Richard Bishop of the Sun City Girls who is part two of tonight's bill, making his second appearance on Brian's show. As a bonus, you can attend the taping of this night at WFMU's ground floor performance space, Monty Hall. Set time is 8pm on Sunday, September 7th, at 43 Montgomery Street in Jersey City (near Exchange Place and Grove PATH stops). Admission to the public is $12, with advance tickets purchasable at wfmu.org on our home page news!

The Gizmos
Tuesday, October 14th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

When you drop the phrase proto-punk, Bloomington, Indiana's Gizmos are synonymous with The Electric Eels, Styrenes and Rocket From the Tombs in terms of Midwest-bred, Creem-magazing-reading, Stooge-oid worshipping innovation. Now, the original 1976 Gizmos are coming to the East Coast following their return to the Midwest in June and an upcoming appearance at Gonerfest in Memphis. Founders Ken Highland and Eddie Flowers will bring the Gizmos experience to New York City on October 11 and Boston on October 12, and laying it down at WFMU on the 14th for Brian's show. As an added bonus, Flowers (who's also been active in chronicling great underground rock through the years via his Slippytown site, Gulcher Record label, writing, and his L.A. band Crawlspace) is gonna reprise his WIUS Bloomington radio show "Divine Decadence" with Ken and transport everybody back to 1974 with some obscuro heavy jams!
