The Horse Lords' Globally Tinged Rock Explorations

Hear this show now:  Pop‑up player! | Add or read comments

The Horse Lords are an adventurous improvisatory instrumental rock band from Baltimore. Their mesmerizing sonic explorations, using the just intonation tuning system, are inspired by African guitar technique and polyrhythms - as well as Krautrock and lots more.

The band celebrates the recent release of its second LP. Hidden Cities, with tonight's FMU debut and Brooklyn gigs at Palisades, 906 Broadway tonight and at Union Pool, 484 Union Ave this Thursday (February 5th).

Massive thanks to our illustrious engineer Jon Flores and assistant Matt Marando! Matt is doing double-duty volunteering downstairs at Pat Byrne's "Prove It All Night" show in WFMU's live space Monty Hall - yes, he's in two places at one time - a volunteer (and DJ) from another dimension!


I have two pairs of tickets available for a very nice African show, Awa Sangho from Timbuktu, Mali performing at CUNY Grad Center's Elebash Hall, 365 Fifth Ave in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday February 10th at 7 pm.

To enter the drawing for a pair of tickets, email me, Rob W, here and please put "TIX" in the subject line.

The deadline to enter is midnight, Sunday February 1 2015.
Winners will be notified by Monday at noon.

Concert info here.

About Awa Sangho:

Born in the Sahara Desert in the Timbuktu region of Mali, Awa Sangho is known for her stunning voice and high-energy drumming and dancing. Her music percolates with the rhythms and sounds not only of Mali, but of the Ivory Coast and Senegal, where she has lived, and of Guinea, land of her mentor, Soulemane Koly. Sangho’s socially conscious songs, written in various West African languages, reflect on controversial cultural traditions, her hopes for today’s youth, the plight of mothers and children, and the people who forged her path. Sangho has performed around the world with her group Koteba, and she recently released her debut album on Motéma Music.

Just intonation -- I'm a Harry Partch fan...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Rob W:

PSS, if you can make it to NYC in July there's a big Harry Partch event as part of the Lincoln Center Festival -
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm pacific standard simon:

Thanks, Rob, I AM interested in knowing about it, though it seems unlikely that I will be able to attend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm pacific standard simon:

Only 10 days after my birthday, too! What a fine birthday present! :)
Avatar 6:47pm JakeGould:

Wow! This Sharda is great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Rob Weisberg:

PSS - this production of Partch's Delusion of Fury I think originated in Europe so it could go elsewhere too...

Francis Bebey was one kickass dude!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm pacific standard simon:

Rob, your better half would be thrilled by the soup I'm making, if only I could have left out the sausage -- kale, corn, beans, rice, assorted other veggies, and various umami enhancers. Killer-diller!
  8:35pm gd0:

Well, if you're gonna open with Dengue Fever, I'm morally obliged to hang around. Glad I did. Horse Lords were phenomenal. Another great show as always. Greetings from SF, where our local KUSF/SFCR is eternally grateful to WFMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Oh Rob, I want to win tickets and go to the show really bad. If only I could teleport from snowy Ithaca.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Rob W:

Oh sorry about that Bronwyn, it ain't fair! But greetings to snowy Ithaca, and to un-snowy SF and our esteemed radio comrades at KUSF and SFCR gd0! Actually I'll be tuning in when I'm out there this April!
  8:44pm Hel:

During the past week everyone's been reminiscing about the Joe Franklin Show. IMHO Rob. I think that you have what it takes to be a great talk show host. You've got the charm, the wit, the versatility and the "je ne sais quois" to follow in Joe's footsteps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm pacific standard simon:

@Hel - but does he have the dimples and eye-twinkle?
  8:56pm Hel:

@pacific, that I do not know for sure but I 'sense' that he does! If there's any big producers reading this, I hope that they have the insight to do a pilot. 99% of the time, I'm right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Good night Rob, loved the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bas NL:

  9:17am dave in Cleveland:

Love your playlist. Your show is at the absolute worst time for me. I have to do grocery shopping and laundry Saturday nights. At 10pm listen to terrible Jamaican dance hall on WJCU. >__<
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm KK:

This entire playlist was really great. Def agree with everyone here about Horse Lords. What a find...buying their latest LP definitely.
