Casanovas in Heat
Wednesday, July 4th, 2012, 3am - 6am
on Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea

Casanovas in Heat from Boston, MA sound like if you were in the 8th grade and wanted to start a really catchy and upbeat punk band because you were listening to everything on early '90s Epitaph, and then you were in your early 20's and actually did start that band. Members of Boston powerhouses Male Nurses, Subclinix, and probably a bunch of others. They have been compared to The Replacements, which does hold some water. Their demo tape is fantastic and they have an upcoming EP on Deranged Records. Tune in for the great jams, stay for the Dorchester accents.

They might be sick of the comparison, but its hard not to notice the My War era Black Flag worship pumping through their Genny Original soaked fingers. Rocking. Noodling. Driving. Cross Eyed Delight. Don't even bother running a vegan straight edge show space and trying to ban Rational Animals from performing because they sprayed a can of beer all over your apartment, because you will like them so much that you change your mind and have them back over and over again. And put out their records on Katorga Works. Yeah! Woo! Yeaaaah! Get into it.

on Brian Turner's show

From their early days of post-hardcore, barstool-throwing shenanigans to today's forays into introspective, psychedelic junkyard dub, the NYC-based Black Dice has made quite a name for themselves as large scale explorers of electronic alchemy. Their latest release Mr. Impossible finds them more at ease than ever in condensing a wide array of strange sounds into a compressed grid of structured compositions, still leaving room to bug out into expansive brain-frying jams.

Shaved Women
Friday, June 22nd, 2012, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

St. Louis' Shaved Women are a fierce, true-of-heart American punk rock band. Their combination of pounding bottom end, slathered with inventive, sometimes angular guitar lines, and always-personal-never-business vocals set on top, is immediately grabbing. Your attention gets got. Reminiscent of early Black Flag and Circle Jerks in the best of ways. They're right in line with a great new generation of punk-rock bands that started somewhere around Cursed, and continues with The Ropes/Repos, Drunkdriver, Vile Gash, and so many others. Shaved Women are at the top of their class with those bands I mentioned, and their record is an instant mini-classic, first issued on vinyl by Rotted Tooth Recordings, now reissued on CD by Ektro, with bonus live material recorded at the St. Louis Apop store. Howabout that, supporting local talent!? WFMU's My Castle of Quiet is thrilled to catch Shaved Women on tour through our area, playing Brooklyn's Death By Audio on June 14, and Sixteen's in Philly the night of the 15th, right after recording a live set with us.

Will C.
Wednesday, June 20th, 2012, Noon - 3pm
on Duane Train

Somerville-based Hip Hop producer Will C. is paying a surprise visit to Duane's show. In the tradition of Dangermouse's "Grey Album" and Bullion's "Pet sounds: songs in the key of Dee", the 24-year-old Will C, has created "Adieu or Die" a Sampladelic instrumental Beach Boys hip hop tribute album.The 20 tracks on "Adieu or Die" are as much an ode to the Beach Boys' musical genius as it is to their melodies, which Will C. cleverly reinterprets and masks below layers of his own creation. Instead of front-loading tracks with samples from the familiar hits, Will C. digs in, taking less recognizable melodic themes -- only the bass line from "Good Vibrations," for example -- to leave a core on which he builds a unique reinterpretation. In doing so, he builds a bridge between modern, electronically produced music and the recording styles of a generation ago. The album is almost a monument to the Wilson brothers' process, in particular Brian. There's a 38-page booklet of liner notes included with the album and you can get it for free download on Will C's website.

on Brian Turner's show

Join Brian today as he welcomes one of the true elder statesmen of British folk guitar and songcraft, easily on the same tier as musical cousins Roy Harper, John Martyn and Bert Jansch though stylistically more in tune with Harper's psychedelicized leanings.

Tompkins Square Records also has releaed a 2CD anthology and a brand new tribute disc called "Oh Michael, Look What You've Done", featuring Chapman's songs reworked by Lucinda Williams, Meg Baird, Bridget St. John and more.

Mitra Sumara may look to the past, but the band is also a player in the very of-the-moment funky-big-band movement in NY: Hot on the heels of tonight's NJ radio debut, the 9-piece juggernaut joins scene-mates CSC Funk Band and People's Champs for a big show - June 10th at Brooklyn Bowl.

Nat Roe
Diemo Schwarz is a monumental figure in contemporary sound research. Working at IRCAM in Paris, Schwarz developed cataRT, a musical interface that cuts sound into microscopic pieces and graphs them visually for live playback. cataRT is particularly useful for manipulating live sound on the fly. For Nat Roe's show, Hans Leeuw will create fodder for Schwarz with electric trumpet. This "electrumpet" is a cutting-edge hybrid instrument that augments a typical trumpet with buttons and sensors. This is future music, do not miss it!

The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
The Cherry Blossom Clinic is stoked to welcome Ceremony to the WFMU airwaves on May 26 Sat 3-6pm. The Rohnert Park, CA band has been pummeling audiences with their brand of hardcore for nearly a decade. With their latest excellent album "Zoo" - their first for Matador - they're refining their attack, adding the precision of Mission of Burma and Wire into the mix. Their live shows are already legendary for their intensity, so tune in Sat May 26 between 3-6pm to the Cherry Blossom Clinic to hear Ceremony bring it hard and live!

JUST ADDED!! ALSO on the The Cherry Blossom Clinic we welcome MARK SULTAN to the WFMU airwaves! Sultan has been a favorite of the Cherry Blossom Clinic, from his work as one-half of the King Khan and BBQ Show and as a member of the Almighty Defenders in addition to his amazing solo work. He combines the fury of prime garage rock with a 50s/punk swagger and he's only getting better as proven by his new album WAR ON ROCK AND ROLL!!

Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison

Possessing an extraordinarily beautiful voice, and in complete command of her powers, this is not a set you will want to miss. Tift also produces a show on KRTS out of Marfa, Texas, called "The Spark", which "explores the real lives and processes of the people behind great works of art." As if that isn't enough, her muses entice her now and again into picking up a camera as well.


Memorial Day Memories from the Underline Gallery
Friday, May 25th, 2012, 3pm - 6pm
on
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Visitors to the Underline Gallery in Manhattan's Meat-Packing District are being asked to record memories as a part of Jordan Sullivan's show "Natural History." Those audio reflections are being collected for a future limited edition CD release, but some of them will be shares on "Miniature Minotaurs" at the beginning of Memorial Day weekend.

Artist Jordan Sullivan deals with themes of Americana and remembrance via photography, prose, artifacts, and sculpture. The exhibition "Natural History" explores his grandparents’ relationship through the lens of WWII Germany, where they first met. Using such touchstones, Sullivan widens the scope in which memory is conceived, sliding between individual and collective registers.


The Gate
Friday, May 25th, 2012, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

"...and so it came to pass, that seeds of Jazz were sown, yet sometime later, it was instead Doom that broke the dirt, hungering for sunlight." Thus The Gate were born. Originally known as The Dan Peck Trio (debut LP, Heat Retention Records, 2009), The Gate play doom like no other band that has earned that label. Doom conveys its tension not so much in the hits, the downbeat, but rather, power often lurks in the pregnant space between those hits—the lingering, hovering anxiety that wades in the space between the punches. The Gate are unique in many ways, firstly and most-obviously it's the tuba (played by Dan Peck) that guides the mighty beast on its path of destruction, joined by double (aka upright) bass (Tom Blancarte) and drums (Brian Osborne) on its take-no-prisoners journey. The debut LP was right impressive, for those who heard it, consisting of three intense chunks of jazz-doom, quite instantly defining its genre as its territory was staked. With a name change, and a new full-length (Destruction of Darkness, this time on CD from Carrier Records), The Gate peel back another layer of their own mystery, with three more slabs of heavyweight playing, but with the sensitivity that comes from individuals who really know their instruments, and communicate like seasoned improvisers. My Castle of Quiet is thoroughly excited to present this unique and fresh combo, with power and sophistication in every blow, absolutely LIVE on the WFMU airwaves, early Friday a.m., 5/25. Check out this brief, exciting promo clip for their CD.

+DOG+
Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Formed in Osaka in 1990 but residing in Southern California since 1997, +DOG+ has been a central project of Steve Davis' excellent Love Earth Music label and scene, with a group output of 36 albums to date. Direct, adrenalin-jolt ugliness abounds in a sound that has been called the noise equivalent to an amalgamation of Ildjarn, Poison Idea, and Black Flag's Damaged. Oppression, destruction, power electronic chaos today!
