James and the Ultrasounds
Tuesday, April 1st, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
James Godwin has been holding down the bottom with precision as touring bassist for such Memphis acts as Jack Oblivian and John Paul Keith but now steps out front to lead his own band. James' self-recorded 2013 release, Lovers and Ghosts, captures a gritty lo-fi mix of the Memphis sounds we all know and love - garage rock, soul, pop. With nearly two years of solid playing with the band under his belt, James is ready to unleash new material that he says will feature a "broader spectrum of musical ideas, done in more of a live setting with the full band, as opposed to me tracking alone with tall cans of beer,and no one to tell me if what I'm doing sucks or not."
Tuesday, April 22nd, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show
Good Throb are a blazing, snot-headed primitive punk quartet out of London, snarling and ripping their way through a few 7" singles so far and doing their second ever radio session today. they're equal parts Flipper at 78 RPM and Messthetics DIY postpunk series, with singer Ellie sounding like Eve Libertine from Crass trying to get out of a woodchipper. See them live at Death By Audio in Brooklyn on April 5th and 18th, or catch 'em on the air and netwaves here!
Monday, May 5th, 9pm - Midnight
on Airborne Event with Dan Bodah
Tom Lecky has been releasing meditative improvised music under the name Hallock Hill since 2011. Hallock Hill's music is primarily made with guitar and, lately, piano, but other instruments and production elements also make appearances. It's careful music full of questioning -- curious, even wide-eyed, though never naive. The music is abstract, but it communicates in a narrative and visual way that's unusual for improvisation. A very special surprise guest will also join Hallock Hill in the studio.
