FRIDAY NIGHT. Here comes the Inside Track at 9 PM. Catch some new club-ready hip-hop from Brazilian artist Karol Conka. Her new CD release Batuk Freak pushes Brazilian hip hop to the next level with grinding beats and rapid-fire flow. This album is four years in the making and it shows. Excellent production featuring sharp percussion, dripping electro beats and grimy bass that feels straight out of Bristol. Party hard.
Every once in a while New Science Experiencers have a chill weekend. This week on the New Science Experience we'll be checking out some sweet dance tracks that have been hiding in the XYC library for years. Tune in at 10 PM tonight.
This week on Hell or High Water we will delve into the music of Al Ferrier. Referred to as the "King of Louisiana Rockabilly," Ferrier wears that crown well. Being from Louisiana, one can hear the the swampy blues and Cajun influences at the core of Ferrier's music, thus re-imagining the Rockabilly traditions to better fit his region. Tune in Sunday at 1 pm!
Tune in to Broken Music this Sunday at 2pm to beat the heat by listening to four new recordings revolving around the sonic dynamics of moving water. During the show listeners will be treated to a set of prepared field recordings by Chris Silver T utilizing the Ionian Sea, a new Artificial Memory Trace LP featuring sounds recording off the Australian coast, a composition by London bassist Dominic Lash melding his own recordings of the River Thames with live string preparations and finally a new work by Jeph Jerman that finds him setting up contact mics under water and then submerging the source material tapes to add another layer of wet oddness to the whole affair.
This week on Sports Rap, we'll discuss whether the Cavs should trade Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love if they can, Lance Stephenson's new contract with the Hornets, and rank Drake's most awkward moments at the ESPYs! Join us at 9 pm Sunday night and we'll give you candy.
Get spooky with us this Monday at 9 PM with the Outside Track. Check out a new one from Gordon Ashworth entitled S.T.L.A. Originally releases as a super limited cassette release, this album found itself repressed on vinyl recently this year. Ashworth has a background in noise and black metal groups, but nowadays he is focusing on tape and field recording work. S.T.L.A. shows Gordon at his best, synthesizing gorgeous public sound with beautiful looped instrumentals. Extremely beautiful!
