Plates of Cake
Sunday, April 22nd, 6am - 9am
on
Burn It Down! with Nate K.
Every description or review of Plates of Cake seems to reference a different music style, genre, or scene from the next. You'll get British Invasion references; then the Soft Boys and Nick Lowe; the maybe post-punk, new wave, or glam; George Harrison or Television. Sure, they're all accurate to one degree or another. But if these somewhat disparate descriptions, in the end, tell you little to nothing about this Brooklyn band, don't worry, you can check them out and come up with your own questionable and limiting elevator pitch when they drop by Burn It Down!


Joshua Hedley, The Shacks and Chris Stamey
Saturday, April 21st, 3pm - 6pm
on
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Joshua Hedley brings his first class brand of traditional country music to The Todd-O-Phonic Todd show. His stunning Third Man Records debut, Mr. Jukebox arrives the day before. This live set will be one is for fans of Johnny Paycheck and George Jones. As Joshua states: "Classic country is like a suit. Nothing about a men's suit has changed in like 100 years. Classic never goes out of style. Something can't be a throwback if it's never been out of style." Don't miss Joshua at Union Pool on April 18th.

Todd-O-Phonic Todd goes dream pop by welcoming The Shacks for a live set. This New York based band made a name for themselves with their excellent cover of Ray Davies' "This Strange Effect". Now they have released their Big Crown debut album Haze. There are elements of doo-wop and early, pre-Elvis rock in their musicianship. Combine that with a deeply personal songwriting approach and it’s a familiar-yet-fresh sound. Like The Five Keys met Neil Young and cut a record with Brigitte Bardot — but in English.

Chris Stamey interviews Todd-O-Phonic Todd! That's right, former dB Chris will ask Todd questions about their shared experiences surrounding the CBGB's scene, Hoboken and more. This is in celebration of the publication of Chris' autobiography "A Spy In The House Of Loud: New York Songs and Stories" (University Of Texas Press). Earlier in the week Evan Davies will be asking Stamey questions. Chris will be doing readings at Little City Books in Hoboken on April 20th and Rough Trade in Brooklyn on April 21st prior to interviewing Todd.


Tony Crane of The Merseybeats
Saturday, April 21st, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show

Michael chats with Tony Crane who formed The Merseybeats in 1962, came up through the same club circuit as The Beatles, and landed eight singles on the British top 40 charts including “"Wishin' and Hopin' ", "Last Night (I Made A Little Girl Cry)", "I Stand Accused" and “Really Mystified" - The Merseybeats morphed into The Merseys who had a huge hit with their version of “Sorrow” - and they're still at it, 55 years after their formation.


Put The Needle on the 42018
Friday, April 20th, 7pm - 8pm

Renata Zeiguer
Friday, April 20th, 3pm - 6pm

She first trained in jazz and classical violin and piano, then took up with a long list of New York bands including Landlady, Ava Luna, Twin Sister, and Quilts, before settling on a solo career—first under alias Cantina, then as Renata Zeiguer. With such a wealth of musical pursuits, it’s no surprise Renata’s debut album, Old Ghost is such a tickling listen, and one so wonderfully described as “a timeless portal where Les Paul and Mary Ford meet Os Mutantes and the Pixies.” On Friday April 20th, Renata and her bandmates will be stopping by Sophisticated Boom Boom to delight us with live versions of songs from Old Ghost.

The Evan "Funk" Davies Show
Singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer/label owner/arranger/engineer/mixer/musical director/movie producer and now author Chris Stamey has been in the vanguard of independent American music for decades. His new memoir, A Spy In The House Of Loud (University Of Texas Press) largely covers his time in NYC from the mid-'70s to the early '90s. Initially conceived as an annotated songbook, the songs serve as a jumping-off point for a fascinating look at the nascent New York underground music scene, Stamey's time with the legendary dB's, and his ever-improving skills on both sides of the recording studio glass.
Chris calls in to The Evan "Funk" Davies show on Wednesday, April 18 to chat about the book and fill us in on his upcoming book tour readings/performances in our area, including Thursday the 19th at McNally Jackson Bookstore in Soho; Friday April 20 at Little City Books in Hoboken; and Saturday April 21 at Rough Trade NYC in Williamsburg.

Today on Surface Noise, the duo plays an exclusive live set of their compelling, semi-improvised instrumental music.


DJ Adam Stafford
Sunday, April 15th, 8pm - 10pm
on
Gaylord Fields's show
Los Angeles indiepop DJ and musician Adam Stafford comes town to spin records at Brooklyn's Alphaville on Thursday, April 12, 10pm–midnight. But what's even more germane to WFMU listeners is that a few days later he will stop by WFMU's studios to offer up a stash of coveted indiepop 45's for airplay during this radio program, promising a special concentration of singles released by Mike Alway's late, lamented él Records. The show host may join his guest and spin a few pop favorites of his own from the '80s and '90s, and possibly from before and beyond.


Tin Foil
Sunday, April 15th, 6am - 9am
on
Burn It Down! with Nate K.
Second time's a charm! Lined up for a live set last summer that never happened, Detroit's Tin Foil are back and ready for the big time (or, at the very least, a live set on WFMU). Hitting an unexpected sweet spot somewhere between the acid-tinged guitar noodling of the Meat Puppets and a more traditional sort of garage-punk stomp, Tin Foil make a sound that's just perfect for what we're aiming for here at Burn It Down!


April Centrone with Maraliz Campos
Saturday, April 14th, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Multi-talented April Centrone has immersed herself in music of the Arab world.

But she's also learned a range of Arab percussion and stringed instruments. She's toured with major Arab artists. She co-founded the NY Arabic Orchestra. She's also a music therapist. One thing April didn't have on her extensive CV was a solo album. But that all changes with the release of New Moon, which she celebrates with a big concert featuring members of the NY Arabic Orchestra - including renowned flutist Saba - Thursday night April 26th at Greenwich House in the West Village. April Centrone is joined by Maraliz Campos to play and chat on this week's show.

With two members of the late great art punks Imaginary Icons and a former siren for the hi-lonesome outfit Small Potatoes, Brooklyn newbies Famous Logs in History bring just the sort of varied pedigree to the table we embrace around here at WFMU. The Logs, specifically, are steeped in the finest moments of assorted DIY underground movements, with maybe a touch of street punk 'tude thrown in for good measure. Their kitchen-sink approach to it all is instantly familiar while standing quite firmly on its own two feet. Catch them on the way up and then go see them at Hank's Saloon, Saturday, March 10.

Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
Kansas City born Krystle Warren, schooled in 70s Soul and R&B, dug deep for an even earlier influence, gospel music, for her latest album “Three The Hard Way”, a record that distinguishes itself for asking more questions than it answers. In addition, Warren played all the instruments. The LP was also recorded to tape, giving it uncommon warmth.
