He pulls both streams together with his band the Sway Machinery, an all star outfit whose members also play with Balkan Beat Box (as he does), Antibalas and even Arcade Fire. The group's lyrics are drawn from Jewish religious texts, but the music is wide open. Recently the band added yet another dimension, teaming up with the electrifying Malian Singer Khaira Arby. She joins the Sway Machinery on the band's latest cd The House of Friendly Ghosts (JDub) and on an Electric Cowbell 7".

FUN's Go! America! Performance Series
Friday, December 23rd, 2011, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

FUN, a name so simple, and yet so indicative of the project's inventive and whimsical approach to experimental, improvised music. And why shouldn't experimental music be FUN? Out of the conservatory and into the street, please! The Philadelphia-based ensemble's first, very enjoyable session from My Castle of Quiet, almost exactly a year old, was then followed by an engaging selection of remixes that following February, which, in addition to being one of the MCoQ live sets with the most hits on Google, also speaks to the band's seemingly irresistible proclivity to mess around with stuff, their sound creations being an endlessly malleable piece of clay that's constantly under attack. As part of their FUN's Go! America! Performance Series, the band returns to WFMU's My Castle of Quiet, for a session recorded on the very day that the great state of New Jersey entered the Union, December 18. This is the third year and performance in this series. For NJ's 224th anniversary, FUN pays sonic tribute to the Garden State on the 18th, and the session will be subsequently broadcast on the My Castle of Quiet show, Dec. 22/23, at approximately 12:30 a.m.

His first ever show--solo or otherwise--is up until the end of the year at the SPF:a gallery in Los Angeles. He is also Frow Show host Jesse's cousin.

Love Butchers
Sunday, December 18th, 2011, 6am - 9am
on Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili

Fresh off a Union Pool gig with the K-Holes, Keili welcomes Love Butchers. Remember when rock felt a little dangerous and you weren't really sure what was going to happen - like when Iggy would rip his shirt off and roll around in broken glass? That's how these guys make me feel, a little on edge, but turned on. Pounding drums, droning guitars, deep, sexy, sometimes guttural, drawn out vocals. These "nice guys" are the ones your mom told you to keep away from. So you didn't.

Megaupload vs Universal w/ Casey Rae-Hunter (Future of Music) [9:30am]
Thursday, December 15th, 2011, 9am - Noon
on Talk's Cheap with Jason Sigal

Universal Music couldn't have been too happy when some of their top artists appeared in a strange music video endorsing so-called "rogue" filesharing website Megaupload. Now, led by controversial outspoken Megaporn founder Kim 'Dotcom', Megaupload is suing Universal, claiming they abused the DMCA to censor the video on YouTube. Meanwhile, some of the artists who appear in the video -- including Will.i.am and P Diddy -- are saying they didn't give permission for the endorsement. What the heck is going on? Casey Rae-Hunter from the Future of Music Coalition calls in to help us understand this ridiculous situation.

on Scones Radio

This week on the Scones Radio podcast with Brad and Momo: A young prospect in the grime/dubstep scene, Numan has put out a number of colorful bass productions for the likes of Planet Mu, Slit Jockey and Wickey Lindows. The 18-year-old hailing from Manchester first caught Scones Radio's attention with his incredibly catchy remix of Major Lazer's "Hold the Line," reminiscent of a starry-eyed Zomby. Equal parts ebullient and rudeboy, this lad's choons got pluck. For this edition of Scones Radio, Numan sent us an exclusive mix of brutish, bass-heavy club tunes spanning genre and geography. Pow!

on
Airborne Event with Dan Bodah
Brian Shimkovitz curates the outstanding blog Awesome Tapes From Africa, on which he shares the music Africans might pick up at the local cassette kiosk. The sounds are more often than not nothing at all like the smooth World Music productions sold to mellow out frazzled sophisticates in the Western capitals. Instead, we hear the wild, raw, low-fi, raucous rhythms and harmonies of a far more real Africa. Brian will bring a selection of his favorite tapes and guest DJ with Dan, as well as talk about the record label on which he is beginning to reissue some of the best of his tapes.
