Alash
Monday, November 14th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

While the members of Alash play music of their ancestors and the greats of Tuva and Central Asia, they are equally influenced by such western artists as Sun Ra and Jimi Hendrix. Which is not to say they turn their backs on tradition. Alash incorporates some modern instrumentation with throat singing and sounds that span the ages. While on a rare U.S.tour, Alash make a stopover to play live in the WFMU love room.


Kardeş Türküler with Arto Tunçboyacıyan and Ara Dinkjian
Saturday, November 12th, 2011, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Turkey’s Kardeş Türküler (“Songs of Fraternity”) is a group with a mission. Too often, they say, the ethnic diversity of Anatolia has led to cross-cultural conflict rather than cross-cultural collaboration. Their goal is to help change that – by featuring musicians and music from cultures across Anatolia – Turkish, Kurdish, Azerbaijani, Roma and more. Kardeş Türküler will play a Moon and Stars Project Turkish earthquake relief benefit concert at Merkin Hall, 129 W 67 St., Sunday November 13 at 7 pm. They will be joined in concert and at WFMU by Grammy-winning Turkish-Armenian jazz-roots hybridist / alchemist Arto Tunçboyacıyan and acclaimed composer and oud virtuoso Ara Dinkjian.

Pronouncers:
Kardeş Türküler = KAR – desh TER – ker - lar
Tunçboyacıyan = Tunk-boy-a-jian

Dikanda has won a slew of awards in Poland and the band has performed around the world. Including, now, in WFMU's Studio B right here in Jersey City.

Ital
Tuesday, November 1st, 2011, Noon - 2pm
on Scones Radio

On the Scones Radio Podcast with Brad LaBonte and Momo:
As a member of Black Eyes and Mi Ami, Daniel Martin-McCormick has been responsible for some heavily rhythmic, noisy, percussive rock music. He has also put out several releases of dubbed-out murk-pop under his Sex Worker alias. As of late, he's been turning heads in dance music circles for his releases as Ital. Over three solo 12"s, two for the Not Not Fun-related 100% Silk and one on his own Lover's Rock label, Ital has carved out an original modern house sound. He takes some cues from classic Detroit acts, but the productions have a rough, personal feel that firmly aligns Martin-McCormick with not only 100% Silk's current crop of basement producers, but truly distinctive weirdos like Omar-S and Hieroglyphic Being.

For this edition of the Scones Radio podcast, Ital is contributing an exclusive mix. We have no idea what it's going to sound like, but given his wide range of influences and impeccable taste, it's sure to be a treat.

on
Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine
From Sonic Youth to the Knoxville Girls, Bewitched, Chrome Cranks, Pussy Galore, Boss Hog, International Shades and now Five Dollar Priest, Bob Bert has an impressive rock resume as a drummer.

Let this BBGun Zine founder and writer blow your mind! Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine is on from Noon-3pm; the Peer Pressure segment starts at 1pm!

Schnitzler was a key figure in the development of psychedelic rock, electronic and experimental music in Germany beginning in the late sixties. His influence cannot be overstated, and can be heard everywhere right up to today's electronic music. Rare and seldom heard works will be aired as well as discussion about the man himself.

on
Talk's Cheap with Jason Sigal

Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis of California-via-Wisconsin's Peaking Lights note that their initials spell A.C.I.D. and describe their music as dub-pop-psych. 936, released earlier this year on Not Not Fun, takes the duo's distinct hypnotic tapestries -- as weaved for labels like Night-People and F' it Tapes -- to more refined heights. Peaking Lights visit WFMU on a New York trip that includes a show @ Glasslands, Brooklyn, Oct 28th, as well as the recording of their next album which may be inspired by the Ethiopian music they've been listening to (judging by this mix).

Nashville via Tullahoma's Daniel Pujol returns to WFMU with a brand new set of infectious, consciousness-streamin' garage rawk. Pujol's got a new 10" (Nasty, Brutish, And Short), and a revised lineup featuring a drummer named Stewart Copeland. Catch 'em at Brooklyn's Public Assembly on 10/22 (w/ Shonen Knife, White Fence and Grass Widow), on 10/24 down in James' New Brunswick NJ Basement, and on a Southward tour with Ted Leo and the Pharmacists (tour dates)

MikeQ
Tuesday, October 25th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Scones Radio

This week on the Scones Radio Podcast...

MikeQ is a leading figure in the modern ballroom/vogue scene. He runs the Qween Beat label, DJs left and right, and puts out a hefty number of ballroom productions and remixes. What does modern ballroom music sound like? MikeQ: "Weird, [expletive deleted], sometimes hard-hitting, dramatic, repetitious, half club/half house beats." Imagine a grittier, stripped-down B-more style built around a sample from Masters at Work's "The Ha Dance." Then, turn the sass up to eleven. Or something like that. Lately, the sound has worked its way into the genre-defying UK house/post-dubstep scene, with MikeQ brought into the Night Slugs and Fade to Mind fold. He also is set to release music on Diplo's Mad Decent label. Put simply, this stuff is a blast, and we're excited to present an exclusive mix from the man.

Airborne Event
Dan will be spinning from his deep well of late-90s experimental, psych, and noise 7"s along with a lot of thrift-shop & yard sale finds, including Greek '60s & old pop 7"s. What fate awaits these little doughnuts o' vinyl? Some will make it through their allotted time and go on steadily to their natural end. A select, sucky few, however, will find themselves breaking up -- yanked from the platter and unceremoniously smashed to pieces in a cathartic sacrifice to Orpheus, the god of music. Every listener is unconditionally guaranteed to laugh out loud at least once and to be angered at least once during this show.


Alana Amram & the Rough Gems
Monday, October 24th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

With a stark voice that creates a fragile, intimate presence Alana Amram grew up immersed in music as the daughter of esteemed composer/writer/poet David Amram and playwright/songwriter Lora Lee Ecobelli. Alana's band, The Rough Gems, were named after a phrase her father often used : “look for the diamonds in the sidewalk.” Amram's own delicate songs take on a rowdy, rawkus spirit, and on her latest album she covers the music of longtime Fred Neil collaborator Vince Martin. Alana Amram and the Rough Gems play live on Irene's show.


Acid Baby Jesus + Singles Going Steady
Monday, October 24th, 2011, 9am - Noon
on
Liz Berg's show
Not only will Liz be spinning her favorite 7" releases of the year, but she'll also be presenting a live set by Acid Baby Jesus from Athens, Greece (that's right, GREECE!). With their fist-pumping garage rock anthems clocking in at under 3 minutes apiece and some serious nods to the Buzzcocks, Acid Baby Jesus are the perfect band for Singles Going Steady week.

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011, 3am - 6am
on
100% Whatever with Mary Wing
The description for the 100% Whatever program is: Music without words, words without music, and combinations therein. On Sunday, October 23rd, this description is taken literally, as Mary Wing plays nothing but instrumentals and spoken word tracks! That’s right, get ready for vocal-free tunes from around the globe, mixed with melody-free voices of all stripes; including poetry, audiobooks, self-help tapes, numbers stations, comedy sketches, and Mary’s personal favorite: foreign language instruction! Listen in, as the long arm of freeform radio gets dislocated from its shoulder socket! (Or, as they say in France: Écoutez dedans, comme le long bras de la radio freeform obtient disloqué de son plot d'épaule!)


Cosmas Magaya with Mbira NY
Saturday, October 22nd, 2011, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Cosmas Magaya is one of the greatest master mbira players of Zimbabwe, a renowned keeper and teacher of deeply spiritual centuries old Shona traditions. He famously collaborated with ethnomusicologist Paul Berliner: He's heard on Berliner's classic Nonesuch Explorer field recording LP The Soul of Mbira and helped Berliner research the equally classic book of the same name. This great master will be here in New York for series of mbira, percussion and singing workshops and concerts from October 21 to 27. We're honored to bring him to FMU for a very special session. He'll be accompanied by Mbira NY, a rootsy offshoot of southern-Africa inspired band Timbila.


Zounds + Wild Flag
Saturday, October 22nd, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
Terre T is so excited to welcome Wild Flag and Zounds to the Cherry Blossom Clinic on October 22nd! Wild Flag have been the talk of the rock world all year long - the supergroup featuring members of Sleater-Kinney, the Minders, and Helium have put out one of 2011's greatest records, combining a full-throttle guitar attack with explosive songwriting.

And if Wild Flag's not enough:
Zounds were one of the UK's most legendary late-'70s anarcho/DIY bands before breaking up in 1983. But now they're back with a great new album as well as reissues of their classic back catalog. So pay respect to punk's past and future on the Cherry Blossom Clinic!


365 Days Project Retrospective
Saturday, October 22nd, 2011, 3am - 6am
on
Zzzzzzero Hour with Bill Mac
Bill Mac points a crooked finger to a website that practically discovered a subgenre of sounds that was revived by anal retentive collectors of recorded oddness rescued from Salvation Army outlets and the basements of second hand stores. Some words to describe the material featured would be: celebrity, children, demonstration, indigenous, industrial, outsider, song-poem, spoken, ventriloquism, etcetera, etcetera and so forth. One word to those in the know says it all – Otis Fodder. Stop by for a retrospective of some favorite selections of Mr. Fodders’ iconoclastic 365 Days Project from that magic year of 2003.

Thriller, western, horror, sci-fi, comedy, drama, spy, war, foreign, musicals, songs from, "songs from" covered by bands that you may have heard of, "songs from" covered by bands that you may not have heard of, etc. They're all here, or possibly here, as your DJ tries once again to live up to the Inflatable Squirrel Carcass Mission Statement: "Pray for liquid, hope for solid, and if it's neither, it's a gas!"

Mr Matthews' True Color of Venus Revue featuring High School Confidential, with special guest Bob Bellerue
Friday, October 21st, 2011, Midnight - 3am
on
Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet
Mister Matthews has been a friend, cohort and "responsible party" for the My Castle of Quiet program nearly since its inception. As a member of Telecult Powers, The Hex Breaker Quintet, and a performer of The Modern Rites of Pei with Telecult Powers and Lala Ryan (during WFMU's 2010 fundraiser), MM is one of players who's made our Studio B a second home, and it's high time that he was invited back to The Castle to put forth his remarkable solo work as High School Confidential. Stretching his legs a bit (as all good friends of the show are invited to do), he also brings Mr Matthews' True Color of Venus Revue, in the artist's words, "another kind of thing I have been working on, caustic tripped out new age music"—which promises by its very definition to be appropriate to the usual, meta-occult electronics that are an indelible and near-constant parcel of Castle programming. Also on hand the same evening, another good friend, composer, improvisor, and Anarchymoon label head Bob Bellerue, who, in addition to engineering the live session, will be co-hosting and co-DJ'ing with Wm. Berger, your regular, weekly Bastard of Ceremonies. Three friends, raising a different kind of hell; don't miss it.

Pure Fire started as a party years ago at SubTonic's basement and was one of the first places to hear grime and dubstep in NYC, alongside crunk, ragga, B-more, and all forms of underground raw dance music. Moving in various directions in the last few years (but always keeping busy with mixtapes, radio, and productions) expect lots of BASS and the obscure punk or montreal disco 45 thrown in for good measure.

on
Dark Night of the Soul with Julie
There's more to life than Lola. Julie slips on her kinky boots and lights up a harry rag to offer a complete immersion in the teachings of Ray and Dave. What does "I Go To Sleep" sound like with just voice and piano? Did Ray really write a musical based on "Around The World in 80 days?" What is the movie "Percy" about? And just who is this David Watts guy anyway? Some questions will be answered and others will remain as debated and ambiguous as Lola's gender.


Cuddle Magic
Monday, October 17th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

The musical collective known as Cuddle Magic is rather fond of filming videos traveling through the rooms and hallways of their apartments, charmingly accentuating the close-knit feel of the ensemble. Sometimes swelling to 9 musicians or more, their music takes on an acoustic gentleness that is a heart-felt blend of folk, avant-garde classical, urban and world music. Cuddle Magic brought like-minded musicians from Brooklyn and Philadelphia together, and their stage equipment, in addition to stringed and woodwind instruments, might include a plastic penguin and some oddly shaped lamps. Cuddle Magic brings their collective musicianship ro WFMU's "love room" for a live performance.

on Gaylord Fields's show

Not only have the neopsychedelic experimental pop collective reunited after a hiatus of more than a decade, they are returning to WFMU to pick up where they left off during their resplendent 1997 live session on Gaylord Fields's program. The most overtly lysergic-sounding of the Elephant 6 bands, Olivia Tremor Control offer up their update/synthesis of the melodicism of the mid-60s' Killer B's (Beatles, Beach Boys, Barrett) with ample musique concrète passages and instrumental freakouts to enhance their glorious eccentricity.

on 100% Whatever with Mary Wing

Kristin Hersh has been writing songs and performing since the early '80s: first with the alt-rock band Throwing Muses, and later as a solo artist and with her second band, 50 Foot Wave. Last year, she published “Rat Girl,” a memoir of her teen years; and has also authored a children’s book, titled “Toby Snax.” Throwing Muses has been working on their first new album in eight years; and last month saw the release of a 2-disc anthology collection, celebrating the 25th anniversary of their debut album. As the band begins a two-month tour of Europe and Great Britain, Kristin stops by WFMU to sing her deeply personal songs and share some stories from her book.

Ready to make a baby? We're here to help!

Matthias and Nataša crank it up for us live in the studio tonight.

These Canadian rockers just keep getting better – they are celebrating their twentieth year together – and their latest album "The Double Cross" (YepRoc) is one of their greatest records yet. Sloan write songs that are loaded with hooks and amazing harmonies – it might sound like sacrilege but they are best described as the Canadian Beatles!

Destination:Out represents sanity among a sea of unruly mp3 blogs, featuring one or two well-curated, rare or out-of-print free jazz tracks per week from artists like Sun Ra, Cecil Taylor, and the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Jeff Golick, one-half of the editorial braintrust at D:O, will drag a bag of records down to The Long Rally and select an hour's worth of music to share and chat about. We're not sure exactly what he'll bring, but Jeff's been on a solo jag at the moment, so expect lone horns and unaccompanied musical FREEDOM. Airs 10am-11am.
