Tonight at 9pm on the Inside Track, tune in for Lucrecia Dalt's album 'Commutus' out on Human Ear Music. Lucrecia Dalt, Barcelona-by-way-of-Columbia geotechnical engineer and bedroom pop Wunderkind, gives her Human Ear Music debut with Commotus. Dalt coos over sounds sourced primarily from her bass guitar, creating sexy, subdued, genre-elusive pop pieces. Like hearing the echoes of a late night bolero floating up through someoneʼs creaky, pipe-clanking apartment.
Then keep it locked in at 10p for NSE. For the first hour, check out DJ None One, who has been rocking dance parties in Chapel Hill and Durham for years with deep ghetto-bass selections and hip-hop favorites. Then bass and deep-end steppers from Yugen will take you to midnight.
This Sunday at 1 on Hell or High Water, Gina B. will be playing Peter Was a Fisherman: The 1939 Trinidad Field Recordings of Melville and Frances Herskovits. These are primitive field recordings from the village of Toco. There are elements of African folk, African American gospel, and early calypso. Check it out if you're interested in Caribbean music but want a rawer sound!
Then stay tuned at 2 on Broken Music which features the 1973 breakthrough work of Parisian composer Eliane Radigue, Ψ 847. Previously unreleased due to format constraints and performed only a handful of times since its premiere, the 84 minute work for ARP 2500 and magnetic tapes is a picture perfect representation of Radigue's aesthetic as a composer. Gentle, sustained layers develop slowly and with grace, creating an immersive environment within the listening space. As in the several ARP pieces that followed, Radigue's patience and restraint shine in the work.
