Rasputina
Monday, July 2nd, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Culling subjects from current world events, and finding them stranger than anything the past could conjure, Rasputina frontperson Melora Creager penned the ensemble's 6th disc, "Oh Perilous World", which has just been released on their own Filthy Bonnet Records. Rasputina employs elaborate costuming during performances, partly in response to the fact that cellists sit to play. Melora, along with percussionist Jonathon Tebeest and second cellist Sara Bowman bring their theatrical music to WFMU's performance studio.


Jasmine Dellal, Director of "Gypsy Caravan"
Saturday, June 30th, 2007, 6pm - 9pm

Shot in part by music-doc legend Albert Maysles, the film intercuts concert and tour footage with segments shot back in the artists' home countries. The film features artists such as Esma, Fanfare Ciocarlia, Antonio el Pipa, Taraf de Haidouks and Maharaja.

Director Jasmine Dellal initially made her cinematic mark with "American Gypsy", about a US Romani family. She'll talk to Rob about her experience taking the Romani on the road, and we'll hear music from the soundtrack on World Village records.

Kenny Young and the Eggplants
Monday, June 25th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Claiming to be from Brooklyn (but perhaps from another galaxy altogether), Kenny Young and the Eggplants are known to some loyal WFMU listeners as the band that recorded such Greasy Kid Stuff hits as "Earl the Squirrel," "Space Frog," and "The Search for Eggplantis."

Monday, June 25th, 2007, Noon - 3pm
on Liz Berg's show

Genre-skipper Blanketship stops by Liz Berg's show with a laptop, a Library Of Congress turntable, and a tape player for the blind.

Spotlight on the Festival of Sacred Music in Fes, Morocco
Saturday, June 23rd, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

The Festival of Sacred Music in the medieval city of Fes, Morocco is an annual event that brings together prominent musicians from the three Abrahamic religions - Christian, Jewish, Muslim - as well as other faiths, in what's literally a weeklong lovefest. While it's wonderful to hear great music in remarkable settings, amid Roman ruins and centuries-old Moorish gardens, it should be noted that the festival has a broader agenda, too: It was launched in 1994 as a pro-peace response to the first Gulf War.

Transpacific Sound Paradise host Rob Weisberg will be attending the festival for the first time this year. He and fellow travelers Tom Pryor of National Geographic's World Music Website and Richard Gehr of emusic.com and AARP online will report back on the music, the mission, and the fabulous city of Fes. They'll also play music by notable festival performers and possibly some site-recorded audio, too.

Lexie Mountain Boys
Monday, June 18th, 2007, Noon - 3pm
on Liz Berg's show

Is it a cult? Performance art? Hare Krishnas on quaaludes? Experimental theater? A hardcore band who forgot their instruments? Demented cheerleading squad? Vocal group Lexie Mountain Boys bring all of this to the table in a heaping, writhing mass of playful energy. These six ladies from Baltimore specialize in schizophrenic ramblings, innocent playground chants, tourettian outbursts, whooping, hollering, bratty tantrums, down-home balladry, and bipolar moments of sincerity and frustration. Tune in for an out of body experience, and check out the Lexie Mountain Boys' new CD on Heresee.


Mike Doughty
Monday, June 18th, 2007, 9am - Noon
on Busy Doing Nothing with Charlie

Former Soul Coughing frontman and guitarist Mike Doughty has released two and a half solo albums in a more singer-songwriter vein than his work with that musical mish-mashing hipster ensemble. He's still got the fine tunes and jazzy wordplay, but he's mining more personal territory -- yearning, but also edgy and funny. He'll sing a batch of songs accompanied by his lively, idiosyncratic acoustic guitar playing, around 11am.


Dandi Wind
Monday, June 18th, 2007, 6am - 9am
on Sound and Safe with Trent

Montreal's Skinny Puppy-loving extremely extreme but also somehow poppy and really personable Dandi Wind stops by for a blistering performance and well-rounded interview on Sound and Safe. They'll play songs from their upcoming album Yolk of the Golden Egg and talk about really great topics like art, Bjork, Vancouver, youth, The Knife, eBay, Gary Glitter, the meaning of "pop," and, of course, Skinny Puppy. It's the kind of thing you hope future-goths will enjoy, having ditched their torn stockings and eyeliner and adopted neon tank tops, purple acid-wash jeans, and mid-90's Reeboks, in like a future goth way.


Steve Alaimo
Saturday, June 16th, 2007, 10am - 1pm

We'll also get the dirt on recently deceased musicians when Goldmine Magazine's obituary writer Phast Phreddie Patterson checks in, and we'll find out what #1 hit song Bill Zurat has left in Michael's Mailbox!

Jaggery
Monday, June 11th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Equally blending angelic voice with dramatic musical swoops, Brooklyn-based Jaggery is difficult to catagorize. Think folk-jazz meets prog rock as a loose description of the band. Led by the swooping vocals of Mali Sastri, Jaggery is embellished with harp, piano, and vibes along with traditional guitar/bass/drums. Jaggery lands for a live set at WFMU this afternoon


Willie Mitchell
Saturday, June 9th, 2007, 10am - 1pm

on Mudd Up! with DJ/Rupture

DJ Rupture's new show on WFMU kicks off with a live set by Manhattan's Drop The Lime. As a producer and DJ, Drop The Lime has come a long way since his slippery breakcore days, mutating into a sort of grimey electro bass rave. He also spearheads the Trouble & Bass crew throwing parties in Brooklyn.


Black Mayonnaise
Tuesday, June 5th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
For 16 years Black Mayonnaise, the alter-ego of one Mike Duncan, has combined the sounds of old-school Godflesh, old-school Carcass, Big Black, drone/doom/sludge, and synthesizer experimentation to accidentally create a crude, insane, lurching homunculus under the comfort of relative obscurity. He's finally crawling out from underneath to do some live shows; May 26th performing at the Water Street Lounge in Brooklyn, as well as gunking up the WFMU studios today.


Glenn Jones AND the Finches
Monday, June 4th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Glenn Jones is a founding member of Boston-based Cul de Sac, and a longtime devotee and friend of the late John Fahey. Lately Glenn has been striking out on his own, releasing two gorgeous fingerstyle guitar albums on the Strange Attractors label. His latest, "...Against Which the Sea Continually Beats," conjures images of childhood and the lovely Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, where the album was partially recorded.

Then, The Finches alight in the studio, captured on tour last March. The duo of Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs and Aaron Morgan live on opposite sides of the San Francisco Bay, brought together by their love of music. In January, the Finches released their debut album, "Human Like a House," which is both effortlessly charming and quirkily graceful.

For your own sake, don't stare too long at the stroboscopic lamps or cough out the smoke.

Reginald C. Dennis
Wednesday, May 30th, 2007, 11pm - 2am
on Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah

Reginald C. Dennis was the music editor for The Source Magazine when it was truly considered the bible of Hip-Hop. He was there when you didn't need to be a multi-platinum rapper to get coverage. In his four years at The Source he saw it go from a highly respected magazine to a corporate commercial with little regard for the art of hip-hop. Listen up as Reginald plays some of his favorite records and speaks his mind.

Scott Walker Documentarian Steven Kijak
Tuesday, May 29th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Steven Kijak's new film 30th Century Man chronicles the life and times of Scott Walker, one of popular music's true enigmas. Starting out as a Sunset Strip bassist, Walker ascended to hysteria-inducing megastardom in the late 1960's as an American transplant in Britain with the Walker Brothers. He soon turned his back on it all, and spent the next thirty years evolving into one of the most challenging and unique artists ever, inspiring countless modern pop and experimental musicians. He's continued to reinvent his own approach to record making, taking 1995's Tilt, and it's follow up 11 years later, the Drift, into sonic realms completely uncharted by anyone. Kijak's film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this month, and he'll be giving us a behind the scenes lowdown today with Brian.


Arborea AND Noa Bell
Monday, May 28th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Phil McMullen, owner of Terrascope U.K., describes Arborea like this: "Take a handful of politically sharp lyrics, hone them on a pedal-driven sharpening block in the lea of the old tumbledown barn until the point shines through, set them to melodies so intimate they sound like firelight whispers and moody, atmospheric instrumentation that soothes like a bubblebath and the result is Arborea ." The duo, featuring Buck and Shanti, hails from Lewiston, Maine and make their music overlooking Shagg Pond. Since we can't take the whole radio audience up there, Arborea brings their guitars, banjos and lovely voices to WFMU for an amazing recreation of their musicspace.

Following that, Israeli songbird Noa Bell drops by to play a set. Noa describes herself this way: "Her heart is full and hollow, like a cactus tree." She's fresh from a few sessions with Espers' Greg Weeks and brings her lovely voice to WFMU's love room.


Michael Rodgers
Sunday, May 27th, 2007, 3am - 6am
on Evan Muse

Michael Rodgers is a London-based musician and co-runner of the TwoThousandAnd label. He has toured Europe, New England, Japan, and Australia, and performed with a diverse range of improvising musicians such as AMM percussionist Eddie Prevost, double-bassist Margarida Garcia, Aussie laptop + field recording star Joel Stern, New York's own electronic experimentalist Barry Weisblat, and London's finest avant-turntablist Paul Hood.

Last year Michael dismantled his electronics gear, and hasn't properly gotten around to getting it back together. Instead he played more live guitar and spent time editing a massive backlog of electronic recordings involving radio, synth, guitar pedals, and field recordings. On this visit to WFMU, he'll perform a solo improvised guitar set and air some unreleased material from his electronics project entitled We're Breaking Up.


Guest DJ Roberto Rodriguez
Saturday, May 26th, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

The Cuban-born percussionist drops by to share some of his music and his musical influences. Rodriguez played in his father's band as well as with the legendary Israel "Cachao" Lopez during his formative years in Miami. More recently, he's released several beautiful ensemble CDs of Cuban-Jewish music -- not really a genre, but more his own imagined hybrid -- on John Zorn's Tzadik label. Two recent collaborative projects with Irving Fields (of Bagels and Bongos fame) and Maurice el Medioni, the brilliant Judeo-Algerian pianist, have extended his Jewish music explorations. Rodriguez has also played with folks like Marc Ribot's Cubanos Postizos, avant-percussionist Susie Ibarra, and Joe Jackson.

He's since collaborated and recorded with Nautical Almanac, Yellow Swans, and Measles, Mumps, Rubella among others, and today brings in one of his latest projects, Brown Wing Overdrive. Made up of Bettis, Mikey IQ Jones, and Derek Morton, we're promised an afternoon of electroacoustic sound riding the line between the absurd and the academic, augmented by live acoustic instrumentation.

on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Die! Die! Die! (the exclamation points are silent, except when they're playing) recently took a break from their opening slot on the Wolfmother tour to stop by WFMU. Coming from Dunedin, New Zealand, it's no surprise (and may even be mandatory) that they list The Clean first among their influences on their Myspace page. They recorded their first album with Steve Albini, but it's the early Factory Records bass sound that might grab your attention first, along with the shredding guitar, propulsive drumming and piercing vocals. Check! Them! Out!

Today, Ruins drummer Tatsuya Yoshida is coming in with his big band Koenjihyakkei (aka Hundred Lights of Koenji) and blowing the roof off even more! Heavy, ubercomplex rhythms, operatic male and female vocalists wailing in some made-up language, piano, reeds, epic jam-packed compositions with insane hairpin curve changes. They'll be taking their technical prowess into some of the most extreme terrain you've ever heard. Do not miss! They'll also be playing live on May 14th at the Knitting Factory!

Angelique Kidjo
Saturday, May 12th, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Gifted singer Angelique Kidjo has always worked hybrid angles, mixing elements of her native Beninese music and tradition with soul, rock, Caribbean and other global influences. Her new release Djin Djin is really two projects in one: Half of the CD is a series of mainstream-audience-seeking rock and pop collaborations with celebs like Peter Gabriel and Joss Stone. But the remaining tracks comprise her most stylistically African block of music in many years. Gearing up for her May 16 record release gig at B B King Blues club, Angelique talks about the new album, her background in a performing family in Benin, her work for international relief organizations and lots more.

No Luck Club AND Clear
Wednesday, May 9th, 2007, 11pm - 2am
on
Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah
No Luck Club are an instrumental hip hop group from Vancouver that combines turntable improvisation with sample-based rhythms. The group started in 2000 and have been going strong ever since. Tune in to hear them gab about their new release "Prosperity" and with any luck, they'll play some unreleased songs.....

Clear first got established in the late 80s as a graffiti artist in LA and then moved over to the DJ world of monthly rooftop parties, improv gigs with jazz groups and an obsession for stretched out beats. Don't leave, because Clear will be dropping the needle at WFMU.

And they do it with style. Andrea visits Rob's program today to talk about her music and the band's long-awaited new CD Oye, on Nacional Records as well as her recent childbirth-themed self-titled solo album.

DJ Silent aka SilentSomeone hails from the Boogie Down Bronx and was born into hip-hop during the 1980's, his partner in rhyme; Incksalonius is from Flatbush, the heart of Brooklyn. This duo makes up a beautiful hip-hop group called Traditional Method, who have a refreshing and organic sound that is more than welcome today.

Joe Boyd
Saturday, April 28th, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Joe Boyd is simply one of the great record producers of our time. His engaging new memoir, "White Bicycles: Making Music in the 1960s" revisits his early career, when he was witness to an incredible amount of musical history.
Joe Boyd is especially notable for his role in the British folk-rock scene of the late sixties, but his career began road-managing blues, soul, and jazz tours; he booked the Pink Floyd as house band at his UFO club in London, stage-managed the Newport Folk Festival when Dylan plugged in, and later in his career ran the esteemed roots and world music label Hannibal Records.

Joe will discuss why he decided to be a producer instead of a musician, why he chose England over the US, the dawn of the British folk-rock scene with Fairport Convention and the Incredible String Band, connections between his early career and his later adventures producing world music for his own Hannibal, and lots more.
