Philippe Petit
Friday, April 13th, 2012, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

In lieu of a live performance, or an in-the-flesh visit, which his touring schedule would not allow for, Philippe Petit has provided WFMU and My Castle of Quiet with a 26-minute, exclusive work, recorded at home on March 21. Philippe himself is a bold and eclectic composer / performer, using electronic and acoustic instrumentation, he's collaborated with Lydia Lunch, Cindytalk, Ron Anderson, Cosey Fanni Tutti, and many others. This piece, "Philippe Petit plays Electric Psalterion processed into electronics," suits My Castle of Quiet's essence perfectly, with eerie vocals, oceans of noise, and processed percussion, amongst a whole host of less-recognizable sounds. With NYC shows at Vaudeville Park on 4/19, and May 4 at Theater Lab, Philippe graces our airwaves with some one-of-a-kind, special programming, the result of a chain of correspondence between the artist and Wm. Berger, which began in 2009, with the release of Philippe's Henry: The Iron Man. It's a great piece of music, a WFMU exclusive, and we proudly suggest that you not miss it.

Bill Baird
Saturday, April 7th, 2012, 6am - 9am
on
Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
Bill Baird is one of those hard-to-classify musicians we love here at WFMU.

He stopped by recently to record a set of songs which are accompanied by a long backing track, creating a prog/avant/folk piece in the process. We will also chat about his upcoming trip to India to be the sound guy for a film about Indian musicians.

on
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
For the first time in its rich history, the Annual Covers Show Show hits the airwaves with a live cover band! The Happy Valley Band is what happens when a computer discovers the Great American Songbook, tries its best to pick out the tunes by ear, then writes down what it hears and demands that human performers try to play it. Bandleader David Kant uses and abuses machine hearing technology and automated music transcription software to re-contextualize the voices of such American pop icons as Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline, and James Brown with full band accompaniment.


Guest DJ Wills Glasspiegel + Chicago House/Juke Legend Traxman
Thursday, April 5th, 2012, 9am - Noon
on Talk's Cheap with Jason Sigal

Wills Glasspiegel is a sonic explorer and producer at Afropop Worldwide who has helped introduce us to a range of new hyper-rhythmic sounds. He's a force behind Shangaan Electro: New Wave Dance Music from South Africa, as well as the stateside emergence of Sierra Leone's king of Bubu music Janka Nabay. He's produced features on House and Footwork music from his hometown of Chicago, and on the pioneering field recording archivist Hugh Tracey. Following up his 2008 visit to Rob W's Transpacific Sound Paradise, Wills swings by at 10:30 to spin lots of new exclusives.

At 11:30 we'll also be joined by Traxman, who drew upon Chicago's musical history to help revolutionize footwork music over the past two decades as a founder of the Geto DJz clique and a member of DJ Rashad & DJ Spinn's Ghetto Teknitianz.

Spoek Mathambo
Thursday, April 5th, 2012, 6am - 9am
on Underwater Theme Park with Meghan

Johannesburg’s Spoek Mathambo makes the Afro-futurists look old school. With the arrival of his second album, Father Creeper, he’s one man building up an army to make his creative visions a reality, rewriting any artistic laws in his way. Is Africa the future? Maybe. Probably. Whatever the case, Africa is the now, and nobody is expressing that better than Spoek Mathambo. After coming up from SXSW, Spoek Mathambo does a quick tour of the east coast and parts of Canada. His show at SOB's was named a top show to go see by Time Out New York. Why not tune in and see what all the buzz is about?


Nude Beach (Deed Runlea fills in)
Thursday, April 5th, 2012, 3am - 6am
on Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea

Brooklyn pop punk rock n roll party heroes Nude Beach blast out a ripping set for your aural pleasure. Like if you mixed the Jam, Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, but made them a punk band headlining shows every other week at Death By Audio. Members of Chain Wallet, Guadalupe, Religious Knives, Pretty Wild, The Fish, Punks on Mars, and too many other bands. This is a not to be missed set for the die-hards and nubes alike, drawing heavily on their brand new album "Nude Beach II" out on Nude Beach Records, and we get to catch the band right after 11 days in the USA and Canada with The Men. This band is the soundtrack to the last Saturday night of the end of the world (January 15, 2012 if you're keeping track). Where will you be partying?

Australian double bill: feedtime + Twerps
Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Solid peers of other down-and-scuzzy Oz combos like Thug, King Snake Roost, Bloodloss and Grong Grong, Sydney's legendary feedtime ripped through the 1980's and certainly gave raw power to the seeds of Seattle (in fact Butch Vig produced the band's last LP way before Nirvana used him). While feedtime made some headway in the USA thanks to Rough Trade distribution, they disappeared seemingly right as their sound sprouted its heirs, and they even resurfaced for a short bit in the mid '90's. Fast forward to their next return in 2012: Sub Pop is about to issue a 4 disc box of the band's output called the Aberrant Years and feedtime tour the USA and hit Brian's show today! You can catch them also in the NYC area on March 29th at Death By Audio, March 31st at the Cake Shop, and April 1st at Maxwells. First and last ever NYC shows! Up next, fellow Australians Twerps arrive from Melbourne, touring America on the heels of their excellent self-titled debut on Chapter Music & Underwater Peoples labels. This quartet specializes in warm and infectious guitar pop, evoking the best moments of the Go-Betweens, Cannanes, and some of the Flying Nun New Zealand stable. They're on tour much of March and April, and you can see them in the NYC area on March 29th at 285 Kent in Brooklyn, and on the 30th at the Mercury Lounge in Manhattan.

Adam Cohen
Monday, April 2nd, 2012, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

The family resemblance is strong in Adam Cohen, evident from the first notes he sings on his new album, "Like a Man." His dad Leonard returned to performing a few years ago, spurring Adam to do likewise after a very long break. Disillusioned after three major label albums with a lukewarm reception, the younger Cohen took a five-year break to return with a new album reminiscent of is father's early, spare sound. Adam Cohen visits WFMU to play live.

Attwenger
Saturday, March 31st, 2012, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

The irreverent upper Austrian drum & accordion (plus fx / loops) duo Attwenger began in the early 90s by performing thrash-punky versions of old Alpine polkas and other folk songs. Since the start, Attwenger has sung in the colloquial upper Austrian dialect (think Cockney, but based on German instead of English) - but now performs quirky originals incorporating a range of musical styles. Attwenger recently embarked on its first US tour ever, to support its 7th and newest CD Flux. This very one-of-a-kind combo makes its first NJ radio appearance tonight.

on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Erlend Viken, award-winning violinist and virtuoso on Norway's national instrument, the hardanger fiddle, stops by for a live solo session and interview. The hardanger is like a standard violin but in addition to the usual four strings there are four or five "sympathetic" strings that vibrate to give the instrument a haunting echo-like sound. Erlen plays in various bands including the hardanger duo Aslak & Erlend and the bluegrass outfit Early Bird String Band, two-time nominees for the Spellemann award - Norway's equivalent to the Grammy.

Lee Ranaldo
Tuesday, March 20th, 2012, 3pm - 6pm

Despite a vast history of production, poetry, writing, photography, and of course helping re-invent the modern approach to electric guitar chronicled under his belt, Sonic Youth guitarist and co-founder Lee Ranaldo has yet to release a solo album of his songs in a rock band context until now. His brand new Matador release "Between the Time and Tides" comes out March 20th, and on this day Lee visits Brian Turner's show to blast through what's sure to be an amazing set of new songs and probably some surprises as well. His live band, which features Alan Licht, Irwin Menken, and longtime SY drummer cohort Steve Shelley, has been playing around NYC since October's debut at the Bell House. Not only do they evoke Lee's finest moments and songcraft from his contributions to Sonic Youth, but also can be said to further feed his pure classic rock jones via the likes of Crazy Horse and Television. Not to be missed!

Join Gaylord Fields and his fellow WFMU DJ Faye as they explore in words and music the British indie scene of the early 1980 — with a concentrated emphasis on Alan Horne’s short-lived yet legendary Glasgow music label Postcard Records. The focal point of this momentous radio event will certainly be the airing of the entire Postcard 45 discography, with all but one single coming from the personal collection of Mr. Fields. The remainder of the program will be supplemented with other songs of significance emanating from that epoch, as well as spirited conversation between the two presenters — one of whom was yet to be born when these records changed the musical landscape more than 30 years ago.

Their exuberant group improvisations, laden with doom-wrought concepts and Downer-rock riffage, are typically wrapped in a bloody mess of a drawing, ink on fishpaper, courtesy of vocalist / illustrator Matt Minter. Yes, I speak of Wretched Worst, the band that everyone in the noise-rock microverse is talking about, the first live band on The Castle in several months, and a great artist to mark the program's return to live music. Expect ashes and rubble in their wake. Expect the unexpected. Expect nothing and everything. Wretched Worst return to NY as part of a mini-tour to promote their new release, Worse Than Jail, that also features shows in Cleveland, Philadelphia, Providence and Brooklyn on 3/17.
