Milk Music
Tuesday, July 5th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Hailing from Olympia, Washington, Milk Music are a killer electric rock trio that conjure up the downstroke punk attack of Greg Ginn with the pop hooks and Bigmuff stylings of Greg Sage & the Wipers (who are clearly a spirit looming large over the Northwest USA these days). Liberal doses of early Dinosaur and Thin Lizzy floating around as well in this, the band's first ever radio session. No-nonsense, simple, buzzed-up American rock for your afternoon listening pleasure.


John Maus (DJ Set and Interview)

The Hussy Performs Live
Sunday, July 3rd, 2011, 6am - 9am
on
Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili
The Hussy from Madison, Wisconsin will blow your mind and then your speakers as they blast the WFMU studios like a hot guy you meet at a party - singing sweet garage pop, but then stepping on the effects pedals and ramping up the UNF as if they were pulling back your hair and planting a sonic kiss on your neck and ear.


Jason Soliday
Friday, July 1st, 2011, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

One might be tempted to refer to Chicago musician Jason Soliday as a "real electronicist," inasmuch as his staggering and prolific talent bears out evidence of a driven and unstoppable artist, with more projects and side projects than one has appendages. Hell, the guy has a project called "I <3 Presets," he's won Wm. Berger over already. Wm. first heard Jason's music through their mutual friend Steve Witchbeam, and sometime later through a collaborative mini CD between OPPONENTS' Joshua Slusher and Winters in Osaka, another of Jason's (or J.'s) impressive branches of activity. So, he's had one degree of separation from the My Castle of Quiet show for a long time, and a live, on-air visit was more than simply inevitable, much closer to "pre-ordained by the gods." Sonically, Soliday is a pro, his recordings and style melding apocalyptic pounding and drone with multiple, sudden bursts of concréte-style collage and psyche-clearing power electronics, without the messy "I had a bad day" vocals that often tether such a journey to the solid ground. Visit Jason's site for a lot more info. His latest full-length work, Shivering Disorganizer, on a par in both complexity and power with his many other releases, is available for free download at Soliday's soundcloud page. Jason's Castle visit comes at the end of a round of NY-area appearances, including the Ende Tymes Festival at Silent Barn (6/26) and Port d'Or (6/29.)

This Copenhagen quartet averaged age 17 when composing their debut LP "New Brigade" for Dais Records release stateside, who describe the release as "uncontrived, pure – this record is a youthful assault of downer no-wave hardcore, wise beyond it’s years." Indeed, there's a fresh breath of air in this mix of Pink Flag/Wire-style compact energy and '81 downtown NYC guitar nods, but Ice Age's average 2-minute jams overflow with very original approach to youthful aggro-rock that has already won them a legion of fans awaiting this their first USA soujourn.


Jolie Holland
Monday, June 27th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Stepping out to solo from the Be Good Tanyas several years ago, the smoky-voiced Jolie Holland has a fifth disc of originals just out on Anti.

They have a record release party coming up Wednesday at Shea Stadium for their new 7", and to celebrate a little in advance they'll come by for a live in-studio performance. The Wire magazine says Arnal has a "balletic sense of time" and "imaginative deployment of colour." He's been on Airborne Event before, with pianist Gordon Beeferman, and shared deft and painterly approach to the drums. Casey Block has somehow found time to turn out incredible music in Hell's Hills, Block:Gartman, and the sadly defunct Fear & Trembling, all while hosting Just Music on East Village Radio and running Eat Records in Williamsburg. His prior visits to Airborne Event have always been a pleasure. Guitarist Aaron Dugan has been a mainstay of Matisyahu's band and played with everyone from Trevor Hall to Bill Laswell. Tune in early -- the live music will start around 9:30pm.

on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Paul Haney is one of My Castle of Quiet's recurring characters, like Leo McKern's Number Two on the Prisoner, or Joel Murray's drunken client rep on Mad Men. Having appeared first as a guest DJ (archive), then again as part of the trio lineup of Towering Heroic Dudes (archive), these appearances still give only a glimpse of the wall of vibrating chaos that is Paul's solo project, Rust Worship. Using and abusing an array of sources, including cassettes, LPs, turntables, guitars and glass, Rust Worship is most often a polyrhythmic assault, where loops and delayed phrases collide and tumble over one another, sometimes clean and subtle, then rising to a distorted crescendo, like someone trying desperately to fight their way out of a bad dream. Cassettes on Obsolete Units and Cryptic Carousel tell only part of the Rust Worship tale, as part of the fun is the process, that of watching and hearing Paul make thoughtful choices and brave stabs in real time. Rust Worship's Castle visit is a long time in the making, and it's highly likely that Paul will pull a magnum opus (or two) out of his track bag, as so many live Castle guests have in the past.

Joy Gregory, Writer of "The Shaggs: Philosophy of the World" Play
Wednesday, May 25th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Forty years ago, the Shaggs were notoriously the worst rock band ever. Their album, masterminded and funded by their father, was mocked for its strange and atonal naivety and championed by Frank Zappa and others. Now, the story is being told in an off-Broadway production. Playwright Joy Gregory comes to the Miniature Minotaur cave to discuss the band and making a musical about bad music.


Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat dan Singa

Blue Sausage Infant and Violet
Monday, May 23rd, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on
Scott Williams's show
Blue Sausage Infant (BSI) and Violet are 2 long-reigning stars of the inexplicably obscure DC electro/experimental/noise scene. Violet produces subtle deep-listening cold and distant textures through the use of not much more than a zither and a bunch of toy robot bugs. BSI warms things up a bit with some beats, lapsteel loops and the odd human voice. Both represent the excellent DC label Zeromoon and are major architects behind the annual Sonic Circuits festival.


Redhooker
Monday, May 23rd, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Named after a remembered year of sadness and isolation in an industrial quarter of Brooklyn, Redhooker once again brings their intertwining strings and sounds to the WFMU studios. The ensemble will preview some lovely new music they'll be performing at Merkin Hall on Thursday, May 26th as a part of the Tribeca New Music Festival. Redhooker's in-studio performance will feature the newest member of the group, Derek Muro on saxophone and will also highlight the group's violinist Maxim Moston doubling on the Rhodes piano through his marriage-straining gaggle of boutique analog effects pedals.

Rapoon / Promute
Sunday, May 22nd, 2011, 3am - 6am
on
Noise and Syrup with Jeff M
Robin Storey and Shaun Sandor stopped by to do two improvised sets for Noise and Syrup.  Storey, who has long worked as Rapoon, and was a co-founder of legendary outfit Soviet France (zoviet-france), assembles a textured and trance-like collage of ethnic loops, radio samples and various sounds of unknown origins. Sandor performing as Promute performs a sparser combination of improvised metal and synth, with rhythms rising and disappearing again. He also runs the label Blondena Music.
