Thomas Carnacki
Wednesday, November 26th, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Thomas Carnacki's music covers unexpected ground, for what one might expect from a solo "noise" artist, i.e., less hard noise, more psych, more akin to something like Organum or NWW, more like previous My Castle of Quiet guests Hoor-paar-Kraat. Hovering drones, horizontal scapes, with acid-tinged themes that emerge, and then dissipate, and more "organic" sounds also touching down, then lifting off. With guest vocals and other sounds from Jesse Quattro. A real treat for Castle listeners, to be sure!

Vashti Bunyan
Saturday, November 22nd, 6am - 9am
on
Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
Vashti Bunyan's 1970 album, "Just Another Diamond Day", is considered one of the keystone recordings of that UK music scene, as its sound and backstory seem the very distillation of that time and place. Her rediscovery by a new generation of musicians led to her 2005 "Lookaftering" and now her brand new "Heartleap", which bookend her 1970 LP. Each of the records is connected by being at once a look back to another time, of being very much in the present, and also possessing an out-of-time quality, all of which continue to beguile listeners. In a recent phone conversation, she and I spoke at length about the time leading up to her debut album and also about the making of her two subsequent records.

Taylor Swift White Noise Remix Context
Friday, November 7th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
On Oct. 21, an apparent glitch at the Canadian iTunes Headquarters resulted in an eight-second file of white noise and silence being made available on for download as "Track 3" from Taylor Swift's upcoming album "1989." The little blurt of an mp3 quickly topped the Canadian iTunes sales charts.

Whether or not Ms. Swift is venturing into the world of sound art or digital culture jamming remains to be seen but that's not stopping us from announcing the TAYLOR SWIFT WHITE NOISE REMIX CONTEST. Download the original track here, bleach it, rinse it, fold it and email the finished product (as an mp3 or download link) to miniature.minotaurs [at] gmail [dot] com by 11/4 (Reverse Information Day). A panel of listeners who donated to Miniature Minotaurs during the October Silent Fundraiser will judge the entries and the results will be revealed on Miniature Minotaurs on Friday, November 7 (3-6 pm).

Autodrone & Be Forest
Thursday, November 6th, 3am - 6am
on
Dark Night of the Soul with Julie
Despite a name that makes them sound like shoegazers, Autodrone owe as big a debt to late 60s psychedelia as they do early 90s walls of noise. Post-punky pop with throbbing bass lines, dark synths, dense guitars that occasionally venture into prog rock territory with strong female vocals. Also that night, Italian ambient ethereal gazers Be Forest stop in during their very first tour of the U.S. Their whispery female vocals over echoing guitars harken back to 4AD bands of the early 90s. One band to dance to, one dance to drift to, taking you right into morning.


Honey
Wednesday, November 5th, 8pm - 9pm
on Infinite Distortion

Distort Jersey City's Reed Dunlea will be co-hosting this show, bringing us a live session from Honey. This Brooklyn trio plays some rock n' roll that you all wish you heard more often.

For those about to rock, we implore you to listen.

Chrome special with Helios Creed
Tuesday, November 4th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
When guitarist Helios Creed met up with Damon Edge and joined the San Francisco band Chrome in 1977, the world got an acid-fried, dystopian sci-fi version of the Stooges that blasted out two records that no other band has come near replicating the warped genius of. Alien Soundtracks and Half Machine Lip Moves utilized a Hendrix kind of freeform aesthetic mixed with tapes, feedback, metal percussion and cutup soundscapes all heightening the band's projections of a world of abusive technology and zombie warfare. They later became probably the most unheralded cornerstone of 80's industrial music, and in the new millenium, scores of garage punks have scrapped traditional approaches and followed Helios Creed's moves more than ever. With Damon having passed away in 2005, Creed (who has had a long solo career since 1985) now rechristens Chrome and has released the new album Feel It Like A Scientist. Brian talks at length today with Helios and gets the lowdown on the past and present of this incredible and unique psychedelic punk band.


Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires
Tuesday, November 4th, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Lee and his Glory Fires blast out high-octane, high-energy road-raging rock and roll from the South but this ain't your typical classic Southern rock. Stereotypes, myths and misconceptions of southern culture get debunked, decoded, rearranged and deranged then taken out behind the woodshed for a good 21st-century working over. We'll rock, we'll roll and probably learn a thing or two as the Birmingham barnstormers blast through tunes from their new LP, "Dereconstruction." and hopefully a few oldies as well.


Annea Lockwood
Tuesday, November 4th, 9am - Noon
on

on 100% Whatever with Mary Wing

Second Hand Rose--one of the biggest rock bands in China--stopped by WFMU this week, as part of their whirlwind tour of the east coast of America to introduce their theatrical music to Western ears. Formed in 2000, the band shook up Beijing's underground music scene with a performance style that's part cabaret, part Chinese theater, and part rock 'n' roll dance party. Since then, they have risen to headlining festivals across China; last year, they performed a concert in Beijing's state-owned Workers' Gymnasium, one of the most prestigious venues in the country. Part glam-rock, part traditional Chinese folk music; hear Second Hand Rose kick up their heels on Mary Wing’s show, beginning at 1 am! And then see them live at Webster Hall later on Sunday night!
