It’s hot out here in Chapel Hill, but don’t fret because we’ve got some pretty ~chill~ programming coming your way this week:
Tune in to the Inside Track tonight at 9 pm to hear French producer Terence Fixmer's latest release, Depth Charged, out now on CLR. Don't miss Fixmer's signature style of heavy, industrial-tinged techno. A dark, emotional release for sure!
After that, DJ Beto Terwilliger will be on the decks for the New Science Experience. Tune in from 10pm-midnight!
On Orange County Special, Sunday 11am-1pm, we’ll be looking at Greek traditional folk and dance music, which enjoyed significant popularity in ethnic centers of New York in the 1930s and continues to influence modern Greek artists today.
From 1-2 pm on Sunday, Hell or High Water will be featuring music from the massive 120-voice choir of the Abyssinian Baptist Church from the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan. These are recordings of the choir under the musical direction of Professor Alex Bradford, and include many of his original pieces.
Tune in to Broken Music this Sunday from 2-3pm to hear a recent release of manipulated field recordings courtesy of the young Montreal composer Chris Strickland. Titled Animal Husbandry and released on the Canadian avant-garde imprint Caduc, Strickland here takes source materials from all over Quebec and puts them through an electronic treatment, resulting in an hour's worth of dynamic composition that falls squarely between the realm of musique concrete and the looser confines of improvised electro-acoustic music.
From the Spring 2015 WXYC Reports Archive: This week, Sunday 5-6pm, Reports takes on the military. Black and white thinking is the easy way out of discussing war; in this episode, the reports team takes a harder route to discussion, venturing into the ambiguities and complexities of military service, politics, and occupation. You'll hear from the experience of ex-army artist Drew Cameron, American/African foreign policy expert Yadiel Shiferaw, student veteran Michael Hart, and from a local Burmese refugee. If experimental audio documentary/storytelling sounds like something you want to get involved with this summer, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
Later on Sunday, 8-9pm, tune in to the Backyard BBQ for a great selection local jams!
Afterwards on Sunday, 9-10pm, Sports Rap will feature discussion of Lil B's curse on James Harden and his warning to the Cavs starting lineup. It’ll also be covering FIFA's corruption scandal, Friday's FIFA presidential election, Steph Curry vs LeBron James in the NBA Finals, and the Stanley Cup Finals.
For the Inside Track on Monday, 9-10pm, we’ll be hearing R. Hundro’s Invisible On Report. R. Hundro is the experimental bedroom rock solo act of Colin White, guitar player for rock band Big French (also on Wharf Cat). Invisible On Report, R. Hundro’s debut, is a spliced-up and stripped-down album with mechanical and sputtering grooves, bluesy guitar, and lo-fi vocals. The album is consistent across the board with with it’s angular, clunky, cog-like nature.
