Monday, May 6th, 2013, 9am - Noon
on Liz Berg's show

Psychedelic indie overlords Deerhunter swing by WFMU for the first time ever to play a live set on Liz Berg's show. Although frontman Bradford Cox (also of Atlas Sound) seems to wind up on the Pitchfork gossip blotter somewhat regularly, the drama follows him for a reason: the man is a charismatic songwriter. Deerhunter is curating All Tomorrow's Parties in the UK this June, and are releasing their first album in three years this May. Tune in to hear Deerhunter's sublime pop anthems, and you'll know what all the fuss is about.

Saturday, May 4th, 2013, 9pm - Midnight
Daniel Blumin's show
Brooklyn artist Megan Moncrief plays a Depression-era zither-like instrument called the ukelin, but her sound is more 1980's tape culture than Tennessee Waltz. Along with the 32-string behemoth, Lazurite summons percussion loops, echo-laden drones, feedback, homebuilt synths, and sundry pedals to create a rich drift deep into the heart of Lemuria. Her releases include the great Secular Geometry cassette, and you can see her live on May 7th at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge and at Silent Barn on June 15th and 24th. But this evening all you need to do is tune in and let Lazurite amplify your thoughts and wash the week's blues away!

George Jones Tribute
Thursday, May 2nd, 2013, 9pm - Midnight
Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
It's all George Jones night featuring hits, more hits, some misses, oddball 45s, live stuff, rare stuff, songs you've never heard of, songs you'll never forget, songs you've heard a hundred thousand times, the songs that smell like the inside of a whiskey bottle, the songs that remind you that's it's 3am and you're talking to a Fred Flintstone jelly bean jar. I could do 12 hours saluting this guy's legacy but we'll see what we can do in three. Tune in tonight for a tribute to the greatest singer living or dead.

Eleni Mandell
Thursday, May 2nd, 2013, Midnight - 3am
on 100% Whatever with Mary Wing

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Eleni Mandell has been making critically-acclaimed music since 1998. Her eighth album, “I Can See The Future,” released last year on Yep Roc, marks a departure from her usual bluesy/jazzy, noir-filled songs. Written and recorded during her pregnancy with twins, it is chock-full of breezy, likable retro-pop that reflects her new life as a single mother. But while the album marks a new phase of Mandell’s life, she is still adept at crafting compelling storylines, as well as using her voice’s versatility and nuance to breathe another dimension into her songs. Tune in to hear Eleni perform a solo set on Mary Wing’s show on Thursday morning, beginning at 1 am!

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013, 3am - 6am

This was recorded on day two of their East Coast tour, after an awesome gig in a converted firehouse in Worcester, Massechussets with Glam, Una Bestia Incontrolable, and Crazy Spirit. Support international punk. Tune in.

Seaven Teares
Monday, April 29th, 2013, 9pm - Midnight
on Airborne Event

Charlie Looker of Extra Life and Zs formed Seaven Teares as a side project a couple of years back. The name comes from a 400 year old John Dowland composition, which gives a hint of the direction the group takes on their just-released record "Power Ballads": pop music played on acoustic instruments, deeply infused with medieval chamber music but ultramodern in the end. The band also includes mezzo-soprano Amirtha Kidambi, multi-instrumentalist Robbie Lee, and percussionist Russell Greenberg. Dan is happy to welcome them to the WFMU airwaves on April 29th.

One Master
Friday, April 26th, 2013, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

One Master, from Connecticut, have made a quick name for themselves in US black metal (albeit over ten years of work) with two solid, flawless full-lengths. These records do exactly what you want new black metal to do - take the genre seriously, have a footing in the style, but have your own, singular identity and write great songs. One Master do all that, and their Forsaking A Dead World (CD on Eternal Death; betraying a penchant for early Bathory, Kampfar, and whole host of other things) laid solid ground, proving the band's mettle as songwriters, while opening the door for The Quiet Eye of Eternity (Peasant Majik LP, 2008), a complex, intelligent, and again masterfully written and arranged black metal album, just raw and dirty enough, with spectacular songs.

The Seduction of Fabio: Sparks Special
Thursday, April 25th, 2013, 3pm - 6pm

Las Ardillas and Los Vigilantes
Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013, Noon - 3pm
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
It's a double shot of Puerto Rico punk! Las Ardillas features members of Davila 666 and predates them, serving as the stomping grounds where they sharpened their punk chops long before hitting the festival circuit. Praised for their catchy hooks, and disarming on-the-floor rummage, they take you on a wild ride through late 70s and early 80s punk rock. Los Vigilantes return to WFMU almost a year to the day of their last visit, bringing their juvenile delinquent garage-punk anthems.

Old time fiddler, band leader, 78 record collector, poet, artist, unterKultur archivist and antiques dealer Richard Shulberg created the Citizen Kafka persona ca. 1976.

Season of Cambodia: Kong Nay and Friends, Live from the Asia Society
Saturday, April 20th, 2013, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Kong Nay is Cambodia's premier virtuoso of the Chapei Dang Weng, a beautiful long-necked two string lute. One of the few great artists to survive the Khmer Rouge, he carries on a long tradition singing bardic songs with socially pointed, satrical lyrics - with a few love songs in the mix too. It's intense intimate roots music from a literally war-weary icon - imagine Robert Johnson via southeast Asia. Kong Nay is in New York as part of the remarkable multi-discipline, multi-venue festival Season of Cambodia (which continues through May). Tonight's concert by Kong Nay and guests Ben Allison, Marc Ribot and Rudy Royston at New York's esteemed Asia Society is sold out. But you can still get a taste of this true musical treasure right here: WFMU will simulcast the first hour of the Asia Society 's webcast of the event, starting at 8 pm tonight.

Dameron's career stretched from the end of the Swing band era through Bebop and beyond, and as a composer, arranger and pianist he helped expand the vocabulary and textures of music, working with a "who's who" of Modern Jazz greats. We'll be playing lots of his recordings from the better known pieces to rarer recordings and discussing his career. Join us!

Keaton Henson
Saturday, April 20th, 2013, 6am - 9am
Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
Londoner Keaton Henson's second album, "Birthdays", has just been released (in the U.S. on the Anti label). Known to be reclusive and averse to performing, he had flown from the U.K. to do only two gigs, one each in New York and Los Angeles, so it was an honor to have him swing by our studio B to record four songs. (These songs will also be posted on the Free Music Archive.) Beguiling and quietly charming in person, Keaton's songs are deeply personal and vividly emotional. No small part of his appeal stems from the impression that he has recently arrived from a gentler and more romantic age.

Illogic & Blockhead
Friday, April 19th, 2013, 7pm - 8pm
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
Columbus, Ohio poet/emcee Illogic and New York City producer Blockhead, who first collaborated back in 2000, recently teamed up again to record two EPs and their first full length album project together - the April 16th release "Capture The Sun" with features from such artists as Slug (of Atmosphere), Blueprint, and Abstract Rude.

Jon Collin
Friday, April 19th, 2013, 9am - Noon

It's all here. Jon runs the Winebox Press label, home to a reliable stable of artists, freaks and dropouts from the Sheffield/Manchester axis. His new LP, High Peak Selections, complete with a nod to Folkways-style cover art, is out now.

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013, 3pm - 6pm
on Irwin Chusid

Singer/songwriter Jenny O. visits Irwin's program and performs a solo acoustic set on Wednesday April 3 at 4pm. Jenny released a five-song EP called Home in 2010, and most tracks ended up in commercials, TV soundtracks and video games, but not because they were slickly produced. Born in the New York area and transplanted to Los Angeles, Jenny just released her first full-length album, Automechanic, on her own Holy Trinity Records. She is currently on tour opening for the legendary Rodriguez, subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Searching for Sugar Man.

Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea
This week we have a live session and interview with Container of Providence RI. Container one of the coolest and most intense acts making techno right now, or “weird techno” as he may describe it to all us noobs, or maybe even “post-techno.” Container makes a chaotic wall of disgusting sonic layers all built over a techno beat, and it is a unique and intense listening experience. We recorded this session on Easter Sunday on a day off from a two week Northeast/Canadian/Midwest tour with Brooklyn’s Ital, and before leaving for another three week European tour right after that. Check out his new Treatment EP on Morphine Records, a follow-up to his incredible second self-titled LP on Spectrum Spools. For true freaks, not to be missed.

They're in the area for a show at Death By Audio, and their new record is fresh out on Magnetic South Recordings, which is run by one of the members with a pal from sister band Apache Dropout. After a string of deep drone worship cassettes, Thee Open Sex have discovered alchemical chants allowing them to embed bluesy garage rock into a cloudy matrix of cosmic sauerkraut and fuzz stacked deeper than Neil Young's lyrics. Lend us your ears and we will make you a believer.

on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Jacco Gardner brings his version of baroque psych to WFMU as he wraps up his US tour with a stop in our Jersey City studios on his way to the airport. His 2012 release "Where Will You Go" was Evan's #1 single of 2012, and his new full-length album Cabinet Of Curiosities (Trouble In Mind) picks up where that left off: building on a '60s sensibility that will be pleasantly recognizable to fans of Curt Boettcher or Billy Nicholls as well as more recent acts like the Black Angels or Dungen. Catch him at the Mercury Lounge on Saturday March 23 (with TiM label-mates Mmoss), and tune in Wednesday the 27th at 9pm for the live set!

Pete Swanson

Electronic musician Pete Swanson [one half of experimental noise duo Yellow Swans (R.I.P)] will be Lamin's special guest. He's stopping by to play tunes and chat. He recently released an EP titled Punk Authority on Daniel Lopatin's Software recording label. The music is difficult and noisy, dysfunctional and extreme, but also grooving and psychedelic; if you are able to find an entry point, you can get lost in it. Punk Authority follows previous releases, Pro Style and Man With Potential for Type Recordings, and various issues on labels such as Three Lobed, Blackest Ever Black, Amish, etc.

Interview with "Yacht Rock" mastermind JD Ryznar
Tuesday, March 26th, 2013, Midnight - 3am
Nat Roe
The cult-classic comedy "Yacht Rock" is the branchild of JD Ryznar, who wrote, directed and starred as Michael McDonald in the TV show. "Yacht Rock" made soft rockers like Kenny Loggins and Toto cool again for a generation of hipsters who longed to share common cultural references with their lame parents. Nat Roe has studied "Yacht Rock" obsessively and will pepper Ryznar with many burning questions. Callers are also welcome to chat with Ryznar as well. Ryznar continues to create TV for Channel101, and Nat strongly encourages anyone and everyone to watch "Yacht Rock" on Channel101.

Monday, March 25th, 2013, 9pm - Midnight

She put out the solo album "Hope Dawson Is Missing" last year on Tzadik Records, has an ongoing duo with guitarist Mary Halvorson, and plays with numerous ensembles. Jessica augments and extends her solo violin and viola playing with electronics to create complex art songs, with lyrics that get beyond conscious defenses to detonate at the border of dreamworld. Pure Horsehair is the moniker under which singer and guitarist Garrett Devoe plays his primitive rock and roll chamber music. He's played with folks like Laura Veirs, Jolie Holland, and Kimya Dawson. Tune in on March 25th prepared!

The album is their own soundtrack to a Russian film called "Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors." In addition to touring, as they say on their website they "...still play weddings, bar mitvahs, circumcisions, quinceaneras, saints day feasts, general parties, etc," but A Hawk & A Hacksaw will happily play for the WFMU audience.

Plates of Cake
Friday, March 22nd, 2013, 9am - Noon
on The Long Rally with Scott McDowell

Brooklyn band Plates of Cake stops by to punch WFMU in the face with their wise old songs and swirling stately rock, mining the wintry rock/punk mix (Lou Reed, The Soft Boys, Television). Their new album "Teenage Evil" is full of poise (and a Soft Boys cover), out March 26th on the Uninhabitable Mansions label.

Mice Parade
Thursday, March 21st, 2013, Midnight - 3am
on 100% Whatever with Mary Wing

Mice Parade originally began as the solo project of Adam Pierce, who has played in Swirlies, The Dylan Group, HiM, Philistines Jr., and Múm. Over the years, Adam has sought different musicians to expand his musical vision across a variety of genres, from indie-rock, electronica and shoe-gaze, to African and Eastern-influenced rhythms. Yet as ever, Mice Parade’s sound is essentially modern, informed by an esoteric palette, retaining a familiar acoustic presence via an uncliched take on folk/world influences. The group blends live instrumentation, layers of overdubs, and intricate percussion into a distinctive, playful sound. Their tenth album, “Candela” was released in January, and AllMusic praised it as presenting Adam’s “eclectic, often globe-trotting influences in some of his most accessible songs yet.” Tune in to hear them play live on Mary Wing’s show on Thursday morning, beginning at 1 am!

SS Decontrol era Boston hardcore worship by way of New York City 2013. This is the angriest music you will listen to today, by far. They have a great 12" out on Deranged Records and Katorga Works, and leave for a European tour with Nuclear Spring in June. Members of Hounds of Hate, Backtrack, Black Kites, Natural Law, Nomos, Warthog, Sucia, and Dustheads. Do you think the opening track off their demo is about an ex-girlfriend or an ex-roommate? Does it really matter?
