Spazzy On the Moon

Fifty years of stupid moon songs.


The Introspective Artistry of Brazil's Sessa
Saturday, July 20th, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Brazilian singer / guitarist Sessa got on the indie radar with a couple of rather raucous outfits, São Paulo Tropicalia revivalists Garotas Suecas and Yonatan Gat's band. He takes a more introspective yet still very expressionistic turn on his debut album, the minimalist gem Grandeza (Boiled Records). Sessa heads to Brooklyn to perform at National Sawdust as part of the multi-venue annual festival Brasil Summerfest on Wednesday night July 24th - but first, meet Sessa on WFMU!

Thursday, July 25th, 9am - Noon
on
This Is The Modern World with Trouble
Chris Leo, the charming former front man of NYC indie rock band The Van Pelt will guest dj on This is the Modern World with Trouble on July 25. Expect sounds fantastico, mostly from the great synthy pop hotbed of Europe. Be there or be sad.


Jason Kruppa, host of the podcast Producing The Beatles
Saturday, July 27th, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show

Michael welcomes Jason Kruppa, the host of the podcast Producing The Beatles which takes a deep look into George Martin's contribution to The Beatles catalog using interviews, music manuscripts, previously unexamined record company files and, most excitingly, multi-track studio recordings.


Drunk Mums
Saturday, July 27th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
You’d be hard pressed to find someone that’s into rock and roll and not into a Drunk Mums record. It’s well written, raw and most importantly free of pretension. In essence what they do is straight up Aussie rock and roll reminiscent of The Saints with a contemporary garage slant and an enthusiasm to match in the live setting. Catch the action at Elsewhere on 7/25 and The Saint in Asbury Park on 7/26.


Hash Redactor
Tuesday, July 30th, 9pm - Midnight
on
Burn It Down! with Nate K.
With a hazy, cacophonous twin-guitar interplay anchored by a lockstep rhythm section and lyrics that take direct aim, but also throw an arched brow, at the messy state of the world, Hash Redactor represent an exciting evolution of the "new weird Memphis" sound. Featuring members of Nots and Ex-Cult, the band drop by the show to play songs from their new album "Drecksound."


Cate Le Bon
Friday, August 2nd, 9am - Noon
on
Radio Ravioli with Olivia
Cate Le Bon will play a few tracks from her new album Reward, which came out on Mexican Summer a couple months ago. She'll be playing Central Park SummerStage with Kurt Vile and Dinosaur Jr. later that day!


Personality Cult and Bajo Mundo
Monday, August 5th, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
After the sinister synth-punk of Natural Causes and the garage rock of Last Year's Men, Ben Carr's latest project out of North Carolina is Personality Cult, a Buzzcocks/Marked Men-inspired stab at power pop/punk with razorwire hooks that will have you instantly pogo-ing.

Bajo Mundo (not the Salvadoran hip-hop group) is a new band including Jota and Pepe of Three Chord Monte faves Los Vigilantes, the garage-punk maniacs from San Juan.


Tammy Faye Starlite
Monday, August 12th, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Tammy is an expert at simultaneously entertaining, enticing, confounding, provoking and captivating an audience. She started with her pseudo-Christian country star persona before moving on to masterfully inhabit the character of luminaries ranging from Nico to Mick Jagger to Debbie Harry. This fall she is re-launching her acclaimed Marianne Faithfull 'Broken English' show at Pangea and brings a preview performance to WFMU.


Maria Usbeck
Friday, August 16th, 9am - Noon
on
Radio Ravioli with Olivia
Maria Usbeck will play new music from her album Envejeciendo, a Spanglish synth-pop exploration which drops that same day on Cascine Records.
