The Goodnight Darlings
Tuesday, July 5th, 9pm - Midnight
on Irene Trudel's show

Romanticizing nighttime culture, Goth-kitch and vampires while setting it all to a beat is second nature to The Goodnight Darlings. The married Miami natives now based in NYC, Kat Auster and Wilson Jaramillo, were members of Bon Bomb and Majorette respectively. As Kat describes their music, "We love juxtaposing the sweet and obvious with a dark bite." The Goodnight Darlings play live on Irene's show.


The Chills (live from WFMU's Monty Hall May 23rd)
Tuesday, July 5th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Tune in today for a full broadcast from the Jersey City stop on the Chills' first American tour in 20 years. Formed by Martin Phillips in 1980, the Chills spent several decades as one of the more internationally-visible New Zealand exports of lysergic pop music, touring the world, landing on both indie and major US labels, and becoming John Peel darlings. As the mid '90s hit, Phillips dissolved the band, occasionally revamping its lineup for homeland gigs, and sporadically recording material with shifting members and other artists, until finally returning to a full-time presence on Fire records last year with the album Silver Bullets. They recently headed to New York and played NYC Popfest in Brooklyn May 22nd, followed by a triumphant gig at WFMU's on Monty Hall May 23rd where they tore through a setlist of songs that appeased even the most diehard fans in attendance. Tune in today at 4pm and hear it all on Brian's program.

Better Than The Beatles
Thursday, June 30th, 9am - Noon
on
Imaginary Radio with Chris M.
A personal statement from Chris M: More than any other artist, The Beatles shaped pop and rock music from the 1960s to today... and I hate them. I hate their cloying singing, their stupid lyrics and I hate most of their dumb baby songs. On this show, you will hear only covers and songs inspired by the Beatles to prove that pretty much anybody can be better (but not necessarily bigger) than the Beatles.


Abdu Ali
Thursday, June 30th, 3am - 6am
on
Champ Sound with DJ Guy
Poet, rapper and performance artist Abdu Ali visits the Champ Sound to deliver a live set of new music. Born and raised in Baltimore, Ali is unapologetically radical in both his lyrical content and musical aesthetic. Carefully combining key elements from Baltimore Club music, harsh noise, punk and jazz, Ali and the producers with whom he works create new musical worlds that serve as compelling backdrops for Ali's lyrics. Taking on subjects such as homophobia, police brutality and cultural appropriation, Ali writes "Black self-care" anthems from the perspective of a Black gay man trying to live day to day in a society not built to recognize his humanity. Ali's work seeks not only to chart new musical territory within a sometimes stale DIY punk scene, but also to envision a culture outside of the structures power and oppression present in the contemporary United States. Tune in!

She was raised in NYC and Brazil and her eclectic musical style reflects both places.


Bob Brown
Tuesday, June 28th, 9pm - Midnight
on Irene Trudel's show

After releasing two albums of fragile, orchestral folk tunes in the early 1970's, Bob Brown essentially left the music business. Both albums, "The Wall I Built Myself" and "Willoughby’s Lament," were originally released on Richie Havens’ Stormy Forest label and disappeared after a couple of big-label mergers. Jump ahead to 2016 and the Tompkins Square label has reissued both of theses delicately pastoral gems.

Pere Ubu
Tuesday, June 28th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Undoubtedly one of the most important bands in the history of the American underground, Pere Ubu emerged from Cleveland in 1975 to challenge art and rock music to step outside its well-trodden '70s safety zone. They're often credited with being thee missing link between the Velvet Underground and the late 70's punk explosion, but have also established a solid discography of records way beyond that continuing into the modern era, continually reinventing their own identity and always looking forward. Hence it's a rare and exciting treat to have them visit Brian's show today to solely focus on the material they released from 1975-82, as part of their "Co-Ed Jail" tour in the wake of two comprehensive boxed set anthologies of that period, currently out on Fire Records. We'll be hearing material from The Modern Dance, Datapanik in the Year Zero, the Art of Walking, and Song of the Bailing Man, and needless to say it will be an unmissible event in the WFMU studios! Pere Ubu plays the Bowery Ballroom (with Obnox) Wednesday, June 29th.


Shredded Nerve
Monday, June 27th, 8pm - 9pm
on
Infinite Distortion
Over countless tours, tapes, homes, and jobs, Justin Lakes has been perfecting the interwoven tape loops, cold synth blasts, processed breaths, and crumbling soundscapes of SHREDDED NERVE into a science entirely onto itself. He stopped by the WFMU studios to record a mesmerizing set for Infinite Distortion. Be sure to check out that, as well as his recently released debut LP on Chondritic Sound, "In The Shadow Of What Never Was".

Venom (live from Primavera Sound June 4th)
Tuesday, June 21st, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

On June 3rd and 4th, WFMU relocated to Barcelona, Spain to broadcast the giant Primavera Sound festival for 18 hours of assorted live sets with no filler. Late in the game, we got the green light to roll down to record Venom, and today on Brian's show you'll hear an exclusive-to-WFMU-only airing of the band's completely obliterating live set, just feet away from the Mediterranean Sea! Formed in 1979 in Newcastle, England, Venom's first two albums sewed the seeds for for countless legions of thrash, death, and black metal combos to follow, replacing technical prowess with pure speed and crude punk approach, all topped off by bassist Cronos' inimitable gargle-with-thumbtacks vox. Today's lineup includes Cronos with guitarist Stuart "La Rage" Dixon, and drummer Danny "Dante" Needham, and they'll be plowing through an hour of classic and recent material with a mix that will, like their beloved Newcastle Brown Ale, knock you on your effing back.


Ken Fury (Julie fills in for Jesse Jarnow)
Tuesday, June 21st, Midnight - 3am
on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie

A multi-pronged media artist, Ken Fury mixes the words and imagery from his writing and painting with sounds and beats drawn from his dance life. The result is both danceable and dangerous, emotional and industrial. He uses acoustic and electronic instruments around throaty haunting vocals along with some surprising theremin. His third album, The Cry of Nature's Birth, was released in April with a companion book of art. Ken will soon be seen dancing in the new Baz Luhrmann Netflix series, The Get Down.


Sissy Spacek
Monday, June 20th, 8pm - 9pm

Hear the live session that required multiple staff members come investigate studio B for fears of permanent damage to both their hearing and our fair station's structural integrity. It's brilliantly taught, texturally complex, and full spike bat to the face noisecore from LA's Sissy Spacek this Monday at 8pm on Infinite Distortion - on 91.1 FM and WFMU.org.


Savoy Motel
Sunday, June 19th, 6am - 9am
on
Burn It Down! with Nate K.
Savoy Motel, the new band from Cheap Time's Jeffrey Novak, might seem like something of a curveball for those expecting more of the Nashville artist's twisted glam punk. Yet the band, which also features members of Music City's Heavy Cream, is in perfect keeping with Novak's mining of the lesser genres of decades past--this time around offering a detached yet decidedly funky revamp of that brief, nebulous moment when glam, funk, disco, and art rock all sort of collapsed in on one another. The band is on tour throughout June, playing Union Pool on June 17 and were kind enough to drop by WFMU for a live set.


Bun E. Carlos (Cheap Trick) PLUS Giuda
Saturday, June 18th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Legendary Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos stops by the studio to talk and play records with Todd-O-Phonic Todd.

His first solo record features top-notch covers of songs by The Who, Dalek and The Blackstones, The Rolling Stones, Bee Gees, Dylan and Them (among others) and some of the featured vocalists are Alejandro Escovedo, Robert Pollard, Hanson and Rick Rizzo.

The sensational Italian glam band Giuda perform a live set on the Todd-O-Phonic Todd show. They will be performing at The Punk Rock Bowling Festival in Asbury Park on Saturday June 11th and at Grand Victory on Monday June 13th. Be sure and pick up "Speaks Evil", their third album, on Burning Heart Records. Giuda are the best Italian export since Gina Lollobrigida!

Moros
Wednesday, June 15th, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Moros need not be reduced by labels, though if it helps; sludge, doom, & death all apply. Just damn good gut-punch metal. Their live set will leave one standing knee-deep in Lovecraftian ooze, unsure of your footing, and feeling like death by hanging is a "reasonable" option. This band hits hard, elevates the gutter, and through swirling, dirge-riffs and anguished vocals, can make you feel pretty great about feeling bad. Perfect for My Castle of Quiet, we're super excited to host these Philly s***kickers for a real-time live set. Their self-released debut, Life Assisted Suicide, is available on cassette & digital. Mighty, heavy and dark.


Xiu Xiu
Tuesday, June 14th, 7pm - 8pm
on
Morricone Island with Devon E. Levins

The album, produced by former Xiu Xiu member Jherek Bischoff and mixed by Deerhoof's Greg Saunier, was just released on Record Store Day by Polyvinyl in the U.S. and Bella Union in Europe. Bandleader Jamie Stewart joins Devon in the studio to discuss the new release.


Heron Oblivion (live from WFMU's Monty Hall May 26th with Videostream)
Tuesday, June 14th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show
(on WFMU stream & FM radio & Video)
On their debut LP out this year on Sub Pop, this relatively new Bay Area combo have forged a unique alchemy between elements of dreamy psychedelic folk and meltdown electric guitar freakery. And with good reason: their lineup includes singer/drummer Meg Baird (of Espers/Watery Love), guitarist Charlie Saufly of Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound, and Noel Von Harmonson (on guitar) and Ethan Miller (on bass) of the late great Comets on Fire, a band that recorded two blowout sessions on Brian's program in the mid 2000's. Today's session is a recording of a May 26th bill Brian presented with Endless Boogie and Chris Forsyth's Solar Motel Band that took place at WFMU's Monty Hall. As a bonus, you can watch the whole set live from our stream at 5pm ET on www.wfmu.org!


David Nance Band (Thomas Storck fills in for Liz)
Tuesday, June 14th, Noon - 3pm
on
Undancing In The Dirt with Thomas Storck
Dreams do come true, and this week the host of UNDANCING IN THE DIRT realizes the live session that had since been only a fantasy, looped and projected in the back of 'is 'ead, upside down and backwards, indicating no preference for one state of consciousness over another. But only in the meditative was the notion fully coherent, and on Tuesday afternoon we'll have an opportunity to hear what it really sounds like when DAVID NANCE and his BAND visit the WFMU studios. Imagine the blurred lines between Lou Reed and Thin Lizzy and you're already on your way.

Peep their new tape Zone Explorers, which makes Acid Mothers Temple sound like "Razors In The Night"- grip it and the record from them on their three-week US tour they're blazing on right now.

Pau Riba
Monday, June 13th, 3:01pm - 6pm
on
Scott Williams's show
Barcelonan songwriter & poet Pau Riba is known as the Father of Catalan Rock - he was singing in Catalan when it was illegal; his 1970 debut LP "Dioptria" is a legendary piece of European psych-folk, with echoes of Brazilians Raul Seixas and Os Mutantes and Brits Roy Harper and Incredible String Band meeting pure homespun Catalan Surrealism; and yet he's almost completely unknown in the US. Following an appearance with Cyborg Neil Harbisson at the annual Moogfest, Pau made his 1st ever NYC appearance at Baby's Alright on May 29. His performance on Scott W's show on Monday June 13 marks his US radio debut.


State Champion
Sunday, June 12th, 6am - 9am
on Burn It Down! with Nate K.

Taking a hard look at life through the blur of an empty High Life bottle, State Champion are purveyors of a new brand of Southern Rock, infused with punk grit and garage choogle in addition to requisite touches of blues and country and folk. The band's raucous, rickety, and occasionally mournful sound recalls relative new-schoolers like the Golden Boys and the Spider Bags on the one hand and veteran alt-country outsiders like Freakwater and the Cherry Blossoms on the other. On tour throughout the spring/summer of 2016, State Champion were kind enough to drop by Burn It Down! for a live set. Tune in Sunday, June 12 to catch it.

Their 2014 EP Diver Blue EP was an EFD favorite and showed that when you're looking for catchy pop/glam/rock tunes, 1-800-BAND are the ones to call. Check their upcoming tour dates at 1-800-band.com.

Next, we adjust the dial more toward the punk side of the punk-pop spectrum for a live set from Mrs Magician! Their third album, Bermuda -- their first album of new material since 2012 -- was produced by fellow San Diegan John Reis, and released on his Swami label. The mix of catchy tunes, blissed-out guitar, and less-than-cheery lyrics have led to the description "the ghetto of 'Kokomo.'" Catch them live at Shea Stadium in Brooklyn on Saturday June 4, and tune in for live sets from Mrs Magician AND 1-800-BAND on the Evan "Funk" Davies Show Wednesday, June 8, at 9pm.

Eggs Over Easy
Monday, June 6th, 9am - Noon
on
Surface Noise with Joe McGasko
If there could be said to be a big bang for what would eventually become the pub rock movement of early 70s England, it would be the pub gigs that American band Eggs Over Easy began to play in 1971. Once British bands began to see that a rootsy, good time rock 'n' roll band could draw big crowds, the pub rock circuit was born. Eventually, pub rock would of course lead to punk rock. Join us on Surface Noise today as Eggs Over Easy return to play some songs and talk about their career in advance of the new anthology of their work, "Good 'N' Cheap: The Eggs Over Easy Story" soon to be released on Yep Roc Records.


Nadja

Aidan Baker and Leah Buckareff are the masterminds behind Nadja, originally from Toronto but now living in Berlin.

Their latest release is Sv, a 41-minute album consisting of a gradually-intensifying single track entitled "Sievert." Performing a handful of rare live shows in North America, including a gig at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn on Sunday, May 29th, Nadja stop by the WFMU studio to unleash their controlled sonic assault on Mary Wing’s show.

Laura Gibson
Tuesday, May 31st, 9pm - Midnight

Then after moving to NYC, Gibson lost all her possessions in the East Village building explosion in March of 2015. Laura's music has a simplicity that is emotionally dark and uplifting at the same time.
