NYC-based soundtrack composer Chris Hajian drops by to discuss his latest dark synth score for director Brad Furman's Escobar 80's-era crime drama "The Infiltrator," starring Bryan Cranston and Diane Kruger. Hajian’s career began over 20 years ago scoring Sundance indie films "Ten Benny" and "Mr. Vincent" before he went on to TV shows "The Upright Citizens Brigade" and "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List", documentaries ("Naked States" & sequel "Naked World" on Spencer Tunick) and over 30 feature films and TV movies (e.g., "The Take" and "Yonkers Joe").


Senyawa
Tuesday, August 9th, 2016, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Hailing from Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Senyawa forged new directions in sound by wedding experimental approach with strong elements of their cultural traditions and their musical folklore. Together, Senyawa employs extended vocal techniques with oddly-rigged and heavily amplified instruments of primitive make. Founder Rully Shabara also led the mathy-rock combo Zoo, until meeting Wukir Suryadi, an East Javanese musician who created a bamboo-based electric instrument called the Bambuwukir and began collaborating. Senyawa explores the possibilities of stringed and percussive textures, both plucked, and bowed, noised up, and again dosed with a heavy element of tradition. A number of their recordings can be found on the Free Music Archive, and New Yorkers can see them live August 10th at the Bridget Donahue Gallery 99 Bowery, 2nd Floor.

Gino and the Goons
Sunday, August 7th, 2016, 6am - 9am
on
Burn It Down! with Nate K.
To paraphrase Dolly Parton’s famed adage about costing money to look cheap, it takes a lot of brains to rock as dumb as Gino and the Goons. The Tampa, Florida–based troublemakers do keep it simple, though, with their bruising beer-bash punk, channeling greats like the Ramones, the Heartbreakers, and the MC5. But Gino and his gang are no humdrum revivalists, they are dedicated keepers of the good-times flame and they have the hooks to prove it. The band drops by Burn It Down! on Sunday, August 7, to deliver their own true testimonial.


The Oswalds
Sunday, August 7th, 2016, Midnight - 3am
on 100% Whatever with Mary Wing

Reactivated after a 25-year recording hiatus, The Oswalds are acclaimed writer and songsmith Camden Joy (vocals, rhythm guitar) abetted by Hudson Valley music scene stalwarts Mark Donato (drums) and Mark Lerner (bass, multi-instruments). The fruit of this reunion is the 12-song cycle Hasta La Bye Bye, released last October. The songs are lyrically and musically adventurous vignettes of characters and consequences of the Mexican Drug wars--on both sides of the border. Joy aptly describes the project as "a mongrel sound; narcorridos as garage rock." (Narcorridos is a drug outlaw-inspired subgenre of traditional romantic folk ballads from Northern Mexico known as norteno corrido.) Noisy, skittish, comic, and profoundly imaginative, hear them play live on Mary Wing’s show at 1 am!

There he met Chris Stein and Debbie Harry. He was immortalized in 1981 when Harry rapped on the Blondie song "Rapture" that "Fab 5 Freddy told me everybody's fly." In the late 1980s, Fab 5 Freddy became the first host of the groundbreaking and first internationally telecast hip-hop music video show, Yo! MTV Raps.

The duo use primarily "a cappella" layered voices (save a little percussion and instrumentation here and there), designed to approximate what Paul Dano's castaway character would imagine for himself while discovering and befriending a dead body portrayed by Daniel Radcliffe.

The married Miami natives now based in NYC, Kat Auster and Wilson Jaramillo, were members of Bon Bomb and Majorette respectively.

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016, 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.

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, 2016, 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!

Pere Ubu
Tuesday, June 28th, 2016, 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.

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.

Savoy Motel
Sunday, June 19th, 2016, 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.
