Check out their brand new release, "Our Love Will Change the World" and you'll hear why Phil Spector wanted to produce them before that whole murder trial thingy got him sidetracked.

David Hykes, followed by Las Rubias Del Norte
Monday, April 18th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
A double-header today for Irene. First, composer and educator David Hykes drops in. David has mastered overtone singing known as Harmonic Chant, the skill developed by Tibetan monks and Mongolian nomads that allows them to sing low and high notes simultaneously. Hykes and his ensemble The Harmonic Choir are celebrating their 30th year of creating enlightenment-dedicated music and we'll talk about the month-long festival devoted to his work at the Rubin Museum (which is dedicated to Art of the Himalayas). Then, Las Rubias Del Norte storm and swoon their way through a mixture of boleros, cha-cha-cha, cumbias with lieder, and cowboy songs. The ensemble is lifted by the angelic voices of Allyssa Lamb and Emily Hurst, two renegades from the NY Choral Society, while the band boys from Brooklyn, France and Colombia hold up their musical backbone.

The Undertones
Saturday, April 16th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

In 1976, a bunch of Irish teenagers formed what would be one of the best bands to come out of the punk movement. The Undertones songs captured youthful angst, love, and joy in a three minute pop song. Its telling that the Undertones' "Teenage Kicks" was uber-DJ John Peel's favorite song. Though Undertones broke up in 1983, they reformed in 2003 with all original band members except for a new singer. They have written a clutch of great new songs while still playing the classic favorites and bringing their brilliant brand of punk pop to a new generation.

They've come up with a new gem, the about-to-be- released "Oceans Apart", and plan to do their first US tour with a band in a great many years.

Heston Rifle
Thursday, March 31st, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Heston Rifle look like five regular people. That's why it's all the more confounding when they pick up their instruments and without a word let loose a barrage of deep melodic noise that's beautiful, unorthodox, and seemingly of another sonic realm. Over skittering drums, vicious repeating rhythmic phrases, and a wandering violin that conveys ghostly expanses and tragic insistence, these NY sound sculptors create crescendos for an urgent future. It's post-rock without the presupposition of easy listening.

on Pat Duncan's show
