Lazy Magnet is the project of Jeremy Harris, a staggeringly prolific and versatile musician from Providence RI who's been at it since 1994. Way back when, he was a third member of USAISAMONSTER. Jeremy's own music is a schizophrenic mix that segues from style to style at a mile a minute. Like "10 bands trapped inside one man's body" says his label, Corleone Records, who released Lazy Magnet's first "proper" album, "He Sought For That Magic By Which All the Glory and Glamor of Mystic Chivalry Were Made to Shine - or - Is Music Even Good?"

on

on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Kal is a scintillating band, virtuosic yet edgy, comprising Roma (Gypsy) and non-Roma musicians from Belgrade, Serbia. Kal's music is very contemporary - they are not stylistic purists - yet it's steeped in Roma and East European traditions. The band performs original arrangements of enduring Roma favorites plus original songs about Roma struggles against discrimination and other obstacles in Europe. Kal plays Joe's Pub on Sunday October 19 and we get a sneak preview with a live session and interview.

Roy Harper
Friday, October 17th, 2008, 3pm - 6pm
on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
Eccentric and often reclusive, influential British singer/songwriter Roy Harper qualifies as a "musician's musician" having being consistently revered - in the decades since he released his 1967 debut - by such fellow artists as Led Zeppelin who wrote "Hats Off to Roy Harper," Pink Floyd who invited him to sing lead on "Have a Cigar" from Wish You Were Here, Kate Bush with whom he collaborated several times including on his 1990 album "Once," and Joanna Newsom who cited Harper's 1971 album Stormcock as an inspiration for her album "Ys." Consequently, last September Newsom invited Harper to support her at the Royal Albert Hall in London when Harper performed the album "Stormcock" in its entirity. Roy Harper will speak on WFMU by phone from Europe.

The interview will be interspersed with lots of music from their 10+ releases! Tune in!


Chandeliers
Tuesday, October 14th, 2008, 9am - Noon
on Talk's Cheap with Jason Sigal

Chandeliers drink the same Chicagoland water that hydrates fellow hyperrhythmic abstract electronic pop groups like Mahjongg and Lazer Crystal. This water turns the vibraphone of late-90s Chicago post-rock into a synth, and adds a phat trigger to every drum. Chandeliers' debut album The Thrush was recently released on Pickled Egg (UK), and on the group's own Obey Your Brain imprint (co-run by Griffin of Icy Demons, also home to Man Man and Need New Body). Tune in to hear Chandeliers refract light in the WFMU live room like a warped disco ball.

on
Irene Trudel's show
As a contemporary of Nick Drake, John Martyn and Roy Harper, guitarist Michael Chapman first emerged on the folk-music circuits of Cornwall, moving on to the fabled London scene.

Sunday, October 12th, 2008, 10pm - Midnight
on Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker

For the first time since the show began, the Stochastic Hit Parade features a live performance of Xenakis' stochastic music. What's that you say? By definition, a stochastic process is one that is unprovable by theory....random, in other words. Xenakis  (an architect, composer and all-around genius-type) used computer algorithms, game theory and algebra to generate random sequences of notes. The JACK string quartet comes to WFMU's studio to perform all four of Xenakis' string quartets, including St/4-1,080262, one of Xenakis' emblematic stochastic works.


Steven R. Smith
Sunday, October 12th, 2008, Midnight - 3am
on
Daniel Blumin's show
Tune in for a session recorded by instrument builder and musician Steven R. Smith at his Worstward Studios in L.A. Smith, a member of the fabled West Coast Jewelled Antler collective and bands such as Thuja, Mirza, Ulaan Khol & Hala Strana, rarely performs live in a solo setting, so do not miss this treat recorded especially for WFMU. Once described as Blixa Bargeld covering Swell Maps instrumentals, Smith traverses the worlds of folk, improvisation, psych and drone, and this first visit to WFMU finds Smith on a sparse lo-fi cosmic journey into the big night sky. Check it out & look for the second Ulaan Khol album to be released on Soft Abuse in December.

Dennis is also the subject of the new documentary, "Of All The Things," about his Beatles-like celebrity status in the Philippines. We'll also get the dirt on recently deceased musicians when obituary writer Phast Phreddie Patterson checks in, and we'll find out what #1 hit song has been left in Michael's Mailbox!

Takka Takka
Wednesday, October 8th, 2008, 11pm - 2am
on The Long Rally with Scott McDowell

Local indie-rock guys Takka Takka come by to play a set of tunes from their latest album, Migration. They've ditched the rootsy Lou Reed stylings of their debut for a burbling understatement of interlocking guitars, ethereal synths, and overlapping rhythms, casually informed by Philip Glass, Balinese gamelan, and Afropop. The perfect soundtrack to declining temperatures.
