Bleeding Rainbow
Thursday, August 29th, 2013, 3am - 6am
on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie

The duo Reading Rainbow has become a quartet now known as Bleeding Rainbow. There isn't much blood involved, although the history of guitar smashing may prove otherwise, but there's plenty of rainbow. Fuzzy guitars surround Sarah Everton's pop-punk vocals and brand new drummer (her fourth performance!) Ashley's hyperactive rhythms add to the punk vibe. This isn't space-out shoegaze it's psychedelic post-punk that just might cause more bleeding ears than rainbows.

It's the kind of show that makes you say "I haven't heard this in 30 years" and "why haven't I heard this before?!", so if you love the nightlife you'll tune in! The best disco in town will be on WFMU Wednesday night, August 28, between 9pm and midnight.

Technicolor Teeth
Thursday, August 22nd, 2013, Midnight - 3am
on 100% Whatever with Mary Wing

Self-described as “séance pop” and “sunshine punk,” the members of Technicolor Teeth enjoy playing around with musical genres and twisting them into new configurations. Their debut album from 2012 creates layers of fuzz, noise, and garage rock, then swerves into 60s-styled vocal melodies and harmonies. Their new 7” (on Accidental Guest) explores shoegaze with a tinge of psych. Most of all, the Wisconsin-based band likes it loud, and louder. Catch them playing shows along the eastern coast and then moving inland, and hear their live set on 100% Whatever at 1 am on Thursday morning!

Mad Nanna
Tuesday, August 20th, 2013, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Strung-out, electric downer drift in the form of Mad Nanna, winging their way from Melbourne, Australia for a US tour and a live session on Brian's show today. Once aptly described as "battered folk", this combo should tickle the brainlobes of avowed fans of such loose thinkers as the Dead C, Shadow Ring, Jandek, and the Godz. They've generally resided in the lo-to-no-fi realm on various releases on labels like Unwucht, Soft Abuse, and Wormwood Grasshopper; a rare opportunity to hear them in a bareboned live studio setting this afternoon on WFMU.

on
Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea
This week we are pleased to be joined by New York punk freaks Deformity. Deformity plays a wild mess of psychedelic raw punk, vomiting their wall noise on any social degenerate willing to listen. A pretty cool sound for a 3 piece whose members all recently graduated high school. They have an EP on La Vida Es Un Mus and Always Restrictions, and their singer/guitarist writes a cult famous zine Accept The Darkness and has a regular column in Maximum Rocknroll. 2013 here they come.

Xenia Rubinos
Monday, August 12th, 2013, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Quirkily staccato but danceable rhythms and powerhouse vocals are a mainstay for Xenia Rubinos (pronounced SEN-ya roo_BEE-nos). As Xenia describes it, her songs, "might cause an initial reaction like you are being tasered." Rubinos has a passionate energy throughout that swells from the delicate to explosiveness within her songs, and her debut album, "Magic Trix," nicely demonstrates this trait. Xenia Rubinos drops by WFMU to play live.

on
Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
Ever since seeing Rachel in a club last year, Jeffrey has been anxious to get her into the WFMU studios, but a year of extensive touring meant a bit of a wait. With two full-length releases and two EPs (one with Anaïs Mitchell), Ries is working on a new album. Drawing on classic post-war country and adding a dash of both earlier and newer styles, her songwriting has only gotten more profound, a reflection of her deeply spiritual nature. She even treated us to some material from her upcoming record, so don't miss this one.


Brother JT Live in WFMU's Love Room - Warm's the New Cool
Saturday, August 10th, 2013, 3am - 6am
on
Zzzzzzero Hour with Bill Mac
John Terlesky (aka Brother JT) is an author, painter, talk show host, animator, and sometimes sports fan (depending on how his teams are doing), and has also been known to be a bit of a monster on guitar, releasing over 30 albums in as many years as a solo artist and also as part of the legendary Pennsylvania garage band The Original Sins. Groove-laden gospel psych with a touch of T Rex inspired pop for good measure, JT graces the WFMU stage with friends Jamie (drums), Ron (bass) and Mike (gtr) to play some of his classics and showcase his latest release, “The Svelteness of Boogietude”. Get ye healed as the JT4 rip through an hour of the hits, invoking the power of rawk with the sounds of the Sins to the present day. Take your trousers off and come to Church!

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irwin Chusid

Bolles is best-known as the drummer with such illustrious musical combos as The Germs, 45 Grave, Celebrity Skin, Nervous Gender, and his current projects, Fancy Space People and Kitten Sparkles. He co-hosts two idiosyncratic radio shows on KXLU, Los Angeles, and a sporadic Public Access TV show called The Threee Geniuses. He co-wrote the book "Lexicon Devil: The Short Life and Fast Times of Darby Crash and the Germs." Through all this overachieving hyperactivity, Bolles has amassed an impressive collection of vinyl oddities, including such genres as Christian ventriloquism, industrial show tunes, vanity pressings, bizarre children's records, and song-poems. On this visit to WFMU, he'll be packing some inexplicable artifacts for audio show-and-tell.

Bolles is also developing a new song-poem series, "The Now Sounds of Today," and will be airing tracks slated to appear on Volume 1. Titles include "Believe In God Until You Die," "Ode To My Kidney Stones," and "Hot Pants and Leather Boots That Shine."

There will also be a Joe Frank episode on this show at 4pm, sandwiched between Don's sets, entitled "Raymond." In this tense drama, Joe extends a helping hand to a homeless man, but the gesture turns into a nightmare when the vagrant sets up quarters behind Joe's house.

Singer-songwriter Cal Folger Day, originally from D.C. but now a Brooklynite, paid us a visit recently for a live set and interview. Her latest recording, Drom-d'reau, has recently been released. Cal's wry sense of humor, evident both in her stage patter as well as her songs, belies the fact that she is a songwriter of uncommon depth and passion. Stylistically, she seems to channel some pre-war blues and country, 40's torchiness and a bit of Dylan, circa 1965, while remaining a thoroughly contemporary singer. For an unusual treat, catch her directing Six Children's Choruses (for choir and orchestra) by Bartok, on Friday, August 2nd, at Jalopy Theatre in Brooklyn.

Future Bible Heroes
Thursday, July 25th, 2013, Midnight - 3am
on 100% Whatever with Mary Wing

Future Bible Heroes is one of several musical projects led by Stephin Merritt, best known for his work with The Magnetic Fields. In contrast to his other groups, the Future Bible Heroes’ sound is centered around electronica-based disco. “Partygoing,” their first album in 11 years, features their signature mix of dancefloor-filling club anthems and super-sad ballads. The album is available as a single disc, or as part of a 4-CD collection of all their releases bundled together for folks who have recently discovered the band.

Due to ear issues, Stephin Merritt is not performing on the current tour to support the album, but band members Claudia Gonson and Christopher Ewen, along with Shirley Simms and Anthony Kaczynski, will stop by the WFMU studios to entertain Mary Wing in a special edition of 100% Whatever on Thursday, July 25th. Put on your party pants and tune in at 1 am!

Bands from Mali's Legendary Festival in the Desert: Imharhan, Tartit, Mamadou Kelly
Saturday, July 13th, 2013, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

The Festival in the Desert was a world-renowned annual musical gathering held near Timbuktu in northern Mali, beloved by local folk as well as lovers of the "desert blues" sound who visited from around the world. That is, until the political unrest that began in 2012 forced a hiatus after that year's festival. This summer three artists who played that last festival hit the road in an awareness-raising North American "Caravan for Peace" Tour, including a free Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors concert on Wednesday July 31st. All three will also come in to play live on Transpacific Sound Paradise: Mamadou Kelly, former sideman for the late great Ali Farka Toure; acclaimed Timbuktu Tuareg acoustic ensemble Tartit (led by singer F.W. Oumar, better known as “Disco"); and Imharhan - a rocking Tuareg electric unit led by (and named after) Disco's brother. Tune in tonight for a taste of the magic of the Festival of the Desert.
