Vetiver
Monday, June 21st, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Firmly rooted in folksy Americana, Vetiver rises from the musical musings of main songwriter Andy Cabie, aided on a debut album by violinist Jim Gaylord and cellist Alissa Anderson, along with the most wonderful Devendra Banhart and Hope Sandoval on a couple of tracks. Pitchfork Media's Amanda Petrusich says "Vetiver could very well be the blurry soundtrack to a delirious fever dream: The band's self-titled debut is a dizzyingly euphoric tangle of freaked-out folk and scratchy strings, all twisted sheets and sweaty brows, upside-down trees and wicked flowers." They drop by the WFMU studios, possibly with Banhart, for a live set before their evening show at The Bowery Ballroom.


Knife Skills

He plays beautifully "betwixt the cracks in the piano" a la Ornette Coleman, he can scat the blues three notes at once, and has invented his own guitar technique he calls "scribbling."

The garage rock revival never would have happened without these early Stones worshipping legends from Rochester NY.

Invert
Monday, May 24th, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

This unique NYC-based string quartet gets their name from the fact that they invert the usual classical standard and use two cellos in their configuration instead of two violins. The result is a darker sound, which they use to their advantage in their modernist compositions. Invert's latest on the Capstone label is called "Between the Seconds" and includes unusual renditions of the Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows" and the ever familiar theme from "Psycho."

Bootylicious co-host Julie Atlas Muz (who'll also join Fred in the studio) calls the shots as contestants vie for cash, prizes, or the chance to be spanked. The fun and humiliation climax when the "winning" contestant chooses one of two curtains: "This" or "That", out of which emerges either a classic burlesque hottie or an act that stinks so bad it's brilliant!
