Statiqbloom
Wednesday, July 26th, 3am - 6am
on What Was Music? with Marcel M

Statiqbloom is a dark, hallucinogenic trip through hard dance beats, haunting electronics and disorienting vocals pulsating into a raw vision reminiscent of early industrial and EBM sounds of the past. The Brooklyn based duo is not just a nod to a former time, however - one must be absolutely modern.. as is Statiqbloom.


Couch Slut / Contempt FULL LP premiere
Wednesday, July 26th, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

It's here! Couch Slut's second full-length; an ugly, leaky bag full of Contempt. After flattening Castle listeners with a live set back in January 2015 (playing two of these songs in embryonic form), NY's Couch Slut are back, this time with an exclusive WFMU / My Castle of Quiet album premiere. More rage and just riffing than most can handle in a straight dose, but you can try. Seven new songs; album releases the following Friday 7/28 on Gilead Media. *Audio presentation (not a live set.)


The Old Codger fills in for the Antique Phonograph Music Program
Tuesday, July 25th, 8pm - 9pm
on
Old Codger with Courtney T. Edison
The Old Codger, whose radio career at WFMU began in 1928, fills in for the Antique Phonograph Music Program on Tuesday July 25th from 8–9pm (Eastern). His music is archaic, his mic breaks crude, and his manners are toxic. His bile is so pure a sample is kept under a bell jar in the National Institute of Standards. Tune in July 25th at 8pm Eastern to catch a whiff of one of Western Civ's worst role models. The music will redeem this broadcast, somewhat.


Ben Model
Tuesday, July 25th, 7pm - 8pm
on Morricone Island with Devon E. Levins

Silent film pianist and organist Ben Model joins Devon to discuss the three new Marion Davies Blu-Ray/DVDs his Undercrank Productions rare and lost silent film DVD label is releasing for "When Knighthood Was In Flower," "Beauty Worth" and "The Bride's Play."

July 29th) and the co-founder and producer of The Silent Clown Film Series now in its 19th season.

Saturday, July 22nd, Midnight - 3am

Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton

Evie Sands
Friday, July 21st, 3pm - 6pm
on
Sophisticated Boom Boom with Sheila B.
Dusty Springfield once called Evie Sands her “favorite female singer.” She also found favor with musical legends like Gladys Knight and Barbara Streisand as well as indie darlings’ Beth Orton, Beck, and Belle & Sebastien, all who covered her blue-eyed soul songs. Evie Sands had a flawless 60s catalog, and cut the first versions of monster hits like “I Can’t Let Go” and “Angel Of the Morning.” She scored her biggest hit with “Any Way That You Want Me” in 1969, and then evolved into a guitarist, songwriter, and producer in the 70s. In anticipation of her upcoming headline appearance at the Ponderosa Stomp, October 5-7th in New Orleans, Evie will speak to Sheila B. about her earliest records, the unfortunate circumstances surrounding her near-hit single “Take Me For A Little While,” and the evolution from 60s soul singer to songwriter and producer.


Peer Pressure Guest, Tombs' Mike Hill
Thursday, July 20th, Noon - 3pm
on
Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine

The band has recently released it's 4th full length, "The Grand Annihilation" and just come off tour, so Mike will have plenty to share with us. He will be live, so listeners will be able to ask him questions via the comments board. Tombs' music is hard to classify, and over their progression, they have been "labeled" anything from Post Rock to Black Metal, Goth and Industrial. Mike will clue us in on the growth of the band's sound, we'll definitely hear some cuts from the new record and Mike will dip into a playlist of favorites! Tune in to see if his picks are crowd pleasers or deep cuts!

Tune in to WFMU Wednesday night, July 19th, to hear the latest from Ultimate Painting!


Tom Wilson's Music Factory #21 - Harumi
Wednesday, July 19th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irwin Chusid
In 1967 and '68 the charismatic record producer Tom Wilson hosted a free-form radio program called "The Music Factory," sponsored by MGM-Verve Records. The series quickly came and went, but Irwin is reviving the series on alternate Wednesdays at 4pm (Eastern). On our July 19th episode, Wilson welcomes to the Music Factory the eclectic Japanese one-album wonder Harumi. Wilson features tracks from Harumi's self-titled debut double album, which Wilson produced, along with tunes by Appletree Theatre, Dave Van Ronk, and the Beacon Street Union.

Tuesday, July 18th, 8pm - 9pm
on
Old Codger with Courtney T. Edison
The Old Codger, who spins 78 rpm records "like they're going outta style," fills in for the Antique Phonograph Music Program on Tuesday July 18th from 8–9pm Eastern. The Codger, who makes rare appearances on the WFMU airwaves, is a nasty piece of work made up of many smaller pieces of nastiness. Behold his bluster when he commandeers the mic and the hand-cranked turntables on July 18th at 8pm Eastern.


Flying Lotus
Tuesday, July 18th, 7pm - 8pm

Gwilly Edmondez
Monday, July 17th, 6pm - 7pm
on Do or DIY with People Like Us

Gwilly Edmondez is all over the place yet usually in the wrong place at the right time. As an improvisor and recording artist he tries to play as often as possible with anyone who’s game, or solo if no one is about. What he uses mostly is his voice, but is always searching for things to go with it, like samples, tapes and beats. Anything could happen, which is why Gwilly prefers to act at the very fringes of proper. He has collaborated with all sorts of people but his primary non-solo projects at the moment are YEAH YOU (with Elvin Brandhi), Kleevex (with Faye MacCalman) and Impossibility Knox (with Odie Ji Ghast and sometimes THF Drenching).


Champagne Superchillin
Monday, July 17th, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Break out the bubbly! French ex-pat Juliette Shultz brought her Francoise Hardy-influenced style across the pond to Music City, where she has teamed up with group of hep rock and roll and blues Nashville cats to form Champagne Superchillin.


Marc Johnson
Monday, July 17th, 9am - Noon
on Surface Noise with Joe McGasko

This year saw the reissue of a neglected folk-pop classic: Marc Johnson's Years. Released in 1972 when Marc was only 21 years old, the album was atypical for its day in its emphasis on arrangements and texture over the sparse, singer-songwriter template of the James Taylors of the time. The album didn't sell and Marc wouldn't be heard from again for almost 20 years, when he returned with the power-pop classic 12 in a Room. Today on Surface Noise, we hear from both sides of Marc Johnson, the folkie and the power-popper, in a live set and interview recorded exclusively for the show.


A Tribute to St. John Coltrane
Monday, July 17th, 3am - 6am
on
Circle Time with Mark R.
On July 17, 1967, the world lost one of its true musical giants, a revolutionary in every way--physical, spiritual, emotional--when John Coltrane passed away at the age of 43 from liver cancer. Our July 17th edition of Circle Time will be a three-hour tribute to a person many believe was the greatest virtuoso musician of the 20th century, regardless of genre. While a mere three hours show barely allows us to scratch the surface of Trane's immense and diverse catalogue, we'll touch on his early days with Miles Davis, some of his most important recordings with the "classic" quartet, and his later, wide-ranging experiments in pure sound exploration.


Paíto and the Gaiteros of Punta Brava - Keeping Afro-Colombian Traditions Alive
Saturday, July 15th, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Sixto "Paíto" Silgado carries on traditions born in palenques - settlements started by escaped slaves on Colombia's Atlantic coast. He's master of the "Gaita Negra" - black "gaita" style. (The gaita is a traditional end-blown flute.) Paito lives in an isolated village and still thinks of himself as a farmer. He didn't start recording and touring until well into his 60s. But when he did, people took notice: Paito’s 2006 debut album Gaita Negra was selected by Semana magazine as one of the 25 most important albums in the history of Colombian music. Don't miss this rare live session with a true cultural treasure, Paíto and the Gaiteros of Punta Brava!


Marshall Crenshaw PLUS Los Vigilantes
Saturday, July 15th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Pop purveyor Marshall Crenshaw hangs out with Todd-O-Phonic Todd to play some of his favorite records and chat about his illustrious career as musician, DJ, and fan. This one is going to be a treat!

Los Vigilantes are a screaming rock'n'roll band hailing from San Juan. One listen to the live set they will be performing on Todd's show will display beyond a doubt why they are the greatest Puerto Rican musical export since The Sunsets of "Theme One" fame. Don't miss their great Slovenly releases.


John Schnall’s Midnight Matinee returns with "Less Miserable"
Saturday, July 15th, Midnight - 3am
on
Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton
Just in time for Bastille Day, Midnight Matinee lets them eat cake on the airwaves with Less Miserable. Host John Schnall will take a certain overblown movie musical and make it... well, maybe not tuneful, but at least somewhat Less Miserable. Here's a taste. At the stroke of midnight on Saturday July 15th on Rich Hazelton's The Inflatable Squirrel Carcass. WARNING: Russell Crowe sings; we can't help that.


Ánde Somby
Friday, July 14th, 9pm - Midnight
on
Daniel Blumin's show
Having performed both traditional and original yoiks since 1974, in 2016, Ánde Somby released the stunning Yoiking with the Winged Ones (Ash International), an LP produced by famed sound artist and former member of Cabaret Voltaire Chris Watson. On the album, Somby pushes his voice as sounds of animals howling, wailing, and moaning come to life in his mesmerizing yoiks. For centuries yoiking, an element of pre-Christian Sámi culture, was condemned and banned as attempts were made to Christianize the Sámi people, but yoiking has survived not only this effort but also the cultural suppression and policies of forced assimilation of the Sámi. Tune in as Somby visits WFMU to yoik and to talk about the culture of the Sámi, the northernmost indigenous people of Europe!

You can also catch Ánde Somby live at the free Prismatic Park events from July 11th to the 16th at Madison Square Park!

DJ Borka
Thursday, July 13th, Midnight - 3am
on
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange
For more than 15 years Borka has kept himself very busy doing a number of things music related. He co-runs rx:tx, an underground beats label from mostly regional artists. He's also part of a three men ex-yugoslav digging expedition called Tetkine Radosti that unearths jazz, funk and rock gems from the former socialist homeland. His band is called Jimmy Barka Experience, a two dj's and a drummer combo playing a collage of all sorts of funk, breaks, rock and afro sounds. He also produces beats for MCs and works at two radio stations. This dude makes me feel mad lazy. He'll be playing some serious 'Yugo' nuggets + beats and pieces.

Matte Black
Wednesday, July 12th, 3am - 6am
on What Was Music? with Marcel M

Brooklyn heavy psych rockers Matte Black deliver all the trippy, fuzzy goodness you'd expect from the genre, but unlike a lot of their peers, they keep things routed in a concise song structure with catchy hooks and melodies. Dropping by WFMU for the first time, we'll be hearing a lot of new material off of their forthcoming album. Not to be missed for fans of all that is heavy and psychedelic.

Tuesday, June 20th, 3pm - 6pm

When Roger Shepherd conceived his record label Flying Nun in the backroom of a Christchurch, New Zealand record store in the early '80's, he gave birth to one of the most fertile and influential imprints in the independent music world.

The label was sold off in 1990, but returned to its independent self in 2009, and continues to create a platform for New Zealand's music scene. Recently, Shepherd authored his memoir, In Love With These Times, out on Harper-Collins. He stops by Brian's show today with Hamish Kilgour of The Clean in tow for a retrospective on the great Flying Nun, with plenty of rarely-heard live recordings of the label's roster, collected by Brian to complement their visit.
