Parno Graszt extends its reach to the US later this month as one of the featured artists at the esteemed Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington DC. (Hungary is a main focus of the Folklife Festival this year.)

on
Michael Shelley's show
Michael welcomes Donnie and Joe Emerson (in town for a June 29th gig at The Mercury Lounge) who'll drop by in person to discuss the recent reissue of their 1979 do-it-yourself classic "Dreamin' Wild". The brothers grew up on a farm in rural Washington State and recorded the album in the home studio their father took a second mortgage to build for them. Their isolated upbringing, limited exposure to mainstream music and lack of formal record production experience led them to produce unique and endearing recordings, which 33 years later sound an odd mixture of dated and timeless. AND Michael chats with Ian Rusten, co-author of the new book “The Beach Boys in Concert”. Written after more than ten years of exhaustive research, the book provides a unique window into the Beach Boys' successes, personal tragedies, inter-band dramas, and globe-trotting, rock-and-roll adventures from 1961 to 2012.

When he gets there, he'll seek out John Fahey and Alice Coltrane so they can bliss out together forever. His recording New Song came out in November of 2012 and he regularly plays in NYC. On June 24th, he'll be premiering the group he's been assembling over the last month. Then in the latter half of the show Joseph Hammer, a member of the Los Angeles Free Music Society and the trio Solid Eye, will visit fresh off a set at ISSUE Project Room.

Heatsick
Sunday, June 23rd, 2013, Midnight - 3am
on Scones Radio

As Heatsick, Berlin-based Steven Warwick performs and records something resembling dance music using an abused Casio, microphone, and pedals. Through a series of iterative loops, Heatsick perverts Chicago house's production and mixing techniques to unmask the genre's affinities with psych and noise. Heatsick will stop by Scones Radio for a live and DJ set in between a scheduled talk at Goethe-Institut and performance at MoMA PS1's Warm Up, as part of the PAN_ACT events in Boston and New York.


Invasion of the Italian Roots Bands: Taluna + Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino
Saturday, June 22nd, 2013, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Two compelling acoustic bands from Italy, north and south: Turin's Taluna explore styles from around Italy, the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe. The barnstorming band brings its US / Mexican road show to The Shrine in Harlem on Friday June 21st before making its Garden State debut tonight at FMU.

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino (CGS) from Salento, "the heel of the boot" of southeast Italy, keeps the focus on its own roots: The cathartic pizzica tarantata - the (literally) trance-inducing tarantella style from the band's home region. CGS is also on tour now: We'll hear the enervating outfit recorded live in concert earlier this year at Pace University's Schimmel Center - a taste of what to expect when CGS returns to New York to rock Joe's Pub on Thursday June 27th.

The Austin quartet, featuring members of Mind Spiders, Video, Wiccans and Uptown Bums, released their debut LP, Pickup Lines, this year on 12XU, which is gaining notice for its top notch songwriting and rock n roll grit. Imagine Reigning Sound meet primo mid-period Replacements and you're close the approximating the mighty wallop of Sweet Talk.

on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie

Night owl Julie braves the early morning hours for a sitdown with one of rock's legendary guitarists in the midst of his first US tour in nine years. Conducted in the lobby of a swank downtown hotel, the conversation is more a spiritual enlightenment session with a guru than an interview with a rock star. Dave discusses his view of life, meaning and the spiritual retreats he hosts at his house. Once she gets him talking about his deepest beliefs, the softspoken Dave transcends the usual limits of a music interview.

It's hard to believe that one man is singularly responsible for schlager-pop/bubblegum tracks like "Yummy Yummy Yummy" and "Mah-Na-Mah-Na," Donna Summer's top disco hits, moog experimentations like Einzelganger, and soundtracks to films like "Scarface" and "The Never Ending Story." Giorgio has collaborated with everyone from Blondie to Bowie to Freddy Mercury to Sparks, and most recently he's begun a DJ career, written a song with Daft Punk, and scored a video game by Google.

My Castle of Quiet Finale, with Psychic Limb live
Friday, June 7th, 2013, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Hearing Psychic Limb's "Queens" (2011) is nothing short of a grind revelation, like the first time one hears Circle of Dead Children's The Genocide Machine, or Pig Destroyer's Terrifyer. The record is a sonic rollercoaster, pulling you forward in a thrill-ride of shameless intensity and gutsy human energy, a musical trip akin to poring through your first Bukowski novel. This band has flawless chops, and great songs to spare. A live Psychic Limb appearance on My Castle of Quiet has been long in the discussion phase, almost didn't happen, but as fortune would have it, the band will be guesting on the last-ever MCoQ weekly broadcast, and we're honored to have a band of such great prowess escort our four-year run off of WFMU's weekly airwaves. Fill-ins to come this Summer / Fall, with live guest-spots by Verglas and The Black Twilight Circle tour. HUGE thanks to Psychic Limb—this promises to be a night to remember, so don't miss it!

In her book Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age Susan Crawford makes the case that the Cable monopolies slow down inovation, raise the cost of access and keep us from getting advanced services and products that many other countries already have. Susan Crawford will join Benjamen Walker for an hour of live conversation and they will take audience calls.


Dmitri Slepovitch gives the lowdown on Litvak Jewish music
Saturday, June 1st, 2013, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Dmitri Slepovitch is an ethnomusicologist, author, educator, composer and musician - leader of the klezmer bands Litvakus and Minsker Kapelye. If anyone knows about Litvak musical traditions - klezmer and Yiddish music from Lithuania and Belarus and the vicinity - it's Dmitri. In fact he wrote the book on it - Traditional Jewish Music in Eastern Europe. The book is in Russian though... So, we've invited Dmitri to FMU tonight to translate the story into English, illustrating with lots of recorded examples from his extensive collection.

on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie

Noisy but gorgeous, Broken Water's sound mingles punk, shoegaze and psychedelia into a crunchy, droney, hazy mix. Alternating vocalists blend into distorted guitars and changeable rhythms perfect for a misty night or rain-drenched soul.


Paul Kelly
Thursday, May 30th, 2013, Midnight - 3am
on 100% Whatever with Mary Wing

For almost 40 years, in over 350 songs, Paul Kelly has been mapping out the Australian landscape and its people. Unofficially considered the poet laureate of that country, he creates musical vignettes of life, love, and the underbelly of both. His nineteenth album, “Spring And Fall,” was released last October and is his first after a five-year hiatus. The concept of the album is best described by Paul himself: “Spring And Fall is a song cycle. It’s been five years since I made a record and perhaps the experience of writing a book during that time made me attuned to the idea of developing a close-knit structure for the next thing I did… Each song contains the seed of the song that follows. They are all love songs and the album is a love story.” Currently on tour across the U.S., Mary Wing is thrilled to have Paul Kelly perform live on 100% Whatever on Thursday morning; tune in at 1 am!

The Copyright Alert System, Music Hack Day & More
Monday, May 27th, 2013, 6pm - 7pm

Radio Free Culture
The entertainment industry has changed their game plan. Instead of suing the crap out of college kids, they're now working with ISPs to find the pirates and send them to copyright reeducation camp. But will it work? Join Andrea from the Free Music Archive and Daily Dot journalist Kevin Collier for a look at the state of the Copyright Alert System. Hear about pirates seeding Rihanna, hoping their ISPs will notice, and the Orwellian Center for Copyright Information, which has recently lost its business status. Plus, take a trip to Music Hack Day in Philadelphia and listen to the sounds of a magnetic resonator piano.


Chuck Johnson
Monday, May 27th, 2013, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Wrap a raga around a Chinese melody, or an Elizabeth Cotton blues, or a Roscoe Holcomb-style Appalachian guitar tune, and you'll get an inkling of where Chuck Johnson's guitar technique comes from. Johnson's fingerstyle playing touches on those influences and on elements in nature, occasionally adding a touch of electronics to the mix. Chuck's newest release, "Crows in the Basilica," is out now on Three Lobed Recordings, with a heavy focus on what he calls "folk minimalism." Chuck Johnson drops by the early part of Irene's show to play some of it live.


The Woolen Men
Sunday, May 26th, 2013, 6am - 9am

Dangerous For The Brain with Thomas Storck
Intense, clever, catchy, and unpretentious. Don't let their recent debut LP on Woodsist fool you - The Woolen Men have been self-releasing undeniable DIY pop gems for years now on the renowned Eggy Records label. Their complexities as song writers are subtle, but not shy, and timeless in a way that they'd feel right at home in the Happy Squid catalog in the '80s, or Flying Nun's in the '90s. This is music that will survive. Check them out on the Free Music Archive before they stop by the WFMU studios while on tour this month with power pop prodigies Lame Drivers.

Pat Murano and Tom Carter / Dried Up Corpse
Friday, May 24th, 2013, Midnight - 3am
on
Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet
As of this performance, Pat Murano will have appeared on My Castle of Quiet on WFMU more than any other individual (in addition to appearances on other shows with other projects.) A founding member of the No-Neck Blues Band, Pat has shown Castle listeners his versatility as an improvisor with K-Salvatore, his outstanding solo project, Decimus, in addition / contrast to the passionate fire of the black metal band Malkuth. (All shows archived at the My Castle of Quiet portal on the FMA.) We're excited to welcome Pat back, this time in the superb duo with guitarist / improvisor Tom Carter, of the legendary and much-loved Charalambides. Together, Murano and Carter shape the sonic space like painters, with the introspection / complexity of Mark Rothko, and the spontaneity and passion of Jackson Pollock. These are eerie, contemplative, psychedelic sound-works of the very highest order, a perfect fit for MCoQ's "lighter" side; music to lie on the roof to, looking upward, contemplating the cosmos.

Stan Reed's Dried Up Corpse is a bird of another sonic feather, peering downwards, with rotted wings, encircling a mass grave. Stan is a founding member of Blue Sabbath Black Cheer, a My Castle of Quiet and WFMU favorite / staple, a harsh-sound project of many years standing and and global reputation. Stan and BSBC are unquestionably this generation's New Blockaders, abrasive-yet-soul-infused, achingly human; if Murano and Carter recall Rothko, then Dried Up Corpse, Stan's breakaway solo project from BSBC, is Rothko's blackest canvases, the ones you could stare at for hours and always see something new at every glance. Through a series of tape, CDr and vinyl releases, Dried Up Corpse has been established a major force, and a unique shade of "dark" removed from the mother project. WFMU catches up with Dried Up Corpse, while in town to play the massive Ende Tymes Festival of Noise and Experimental Liberation, which WFMU's experimental-music-listener fans are strongly urged to attend, with many great performers performing!

Dark Night of the Soul with Julie
Julie lives up to the reputation of her "goth show" and once again proves how she pales in comparison to the true connoisseurs of the genre. Area DJ and goth aficionado Doktor Lorenz comes in to play some gothic vinyl as Julie tries to remember which band Peter Murphy led and reminds us that Sisters of Mercy got their name from a Leonard Cohen song. Spend the waning moments of World Goth Day watching your candles become puddles and enjoying the old, the new and the "is this really goth?"

Robert Scotto discusses and plays Moondog
Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013, 3pm - 6pm
on Irwin Chusid

He was blind, dressed in ancient Viking regalia, and slept on 6th Avenue during the 1950s. And he was a musical genius. Louis Hardin was known as Moondog, and Irwin and guest Robert Scotto celebrate the birthday of the majestic pioneer on May 22 from 3-4pm (Eastern). Hear recordings of strange sounds and exotic beauty from the 1950s to the 1990s, including unreleased material. Moondog recorded with animals, self-made instruments, and tugboat horns, and composed percussion pieces, chamber music, and works for 25 saxophones. Author Robert Scotto wrote the first full-length biography of Moondog in 2008, and the second edition is being published in May. Scotto also wrote the Moondog entry in the second edition of The Grove Dictionary of American Music. Scotto recently retired as professor of English at Baruch College. His previous publications include a Critical Edition of Catch-22, a book on the contemporary American novel, and essays on Walter Pater, James Joyce and other major 19th and 20th century writers.

The Bell Cycle, multi-instrumentalists Isabel Castellvi and Rob Chamberlain, will perform live. They use melodic songs based around guitar/cello interplay and blatant vocal harmonies to induce an unfounded sense of well-being, then bewilder with nonsensical strings of noise that defy all bounds of sonic temperament. Their new record Paid By the Word comes out on May 28th.
