Roots-cowpunk-country outta New York City. Girls on Grass was formed by singer-guitarist Barbara Endes (ex-Elk City, the Lovelies) and drummer Nancy Polstein (the Silos, Cheri Knight). The Girls woodshedded throughout 2014, recruiting bassist Dave Mandl (of WFMU's Hoof and Mouth Sinfonia) and lead guitarist Sean (Luna, Elk City) before heading into the studio to capture the initial burst of songwriting. The result is an amazing self-titled debut album. Find out what all the fuss is about with what is sure to be an incendiary live session!
Freakwater's Janet Bean and Catherine Irwin first put their distinctive harmonies to tape under a swinging Kentucky country ham in Janet's parent's basement in 1985. Over three decades and eight infrequently released albums, Catherine and Janet's unflinching lyrics and compelling vocal harmonies can stab you in the heart from a mile away. Freakwater continues its tradition of defying classifications on the new album, Scheherazade, coming February 5th.
Time to kick out the Jams! Rob K (Workdogs, Gibson Brothers) and Uncle Butcher (Thee Butcher's Orchestra) make their long-awaited return to WFMU delivering their unique brand of trash blues-silky soul rock 'n roll.
