It's fall break. UNLESS YOU'RE A DJ.
Tonight on the Inside Track check out the new Josephine Foster album called Blood Rushing on Fire. It shows a little bit of the Spanish influence of her work with husband Victor Herrero (who plays guitar here), but is more like the psychedelic folk-rock of All The Leaves Are Gone.
It's the Orange Canine Special this Sunday at 10am as Andy presents a selection of traditional music, folk songs and stories, blues growlers, and more, all related to man's best friend.
As if that wasn't enough, at 1p on Hell or High Water, Richard will examine the life and works of Nancy Holloway, a Cleveland-born soul singer who, after finding moderate success in the late 40s and early 50s in New York, the legend has it that she committed a crime involving her then boyfriend and fled to Paris, where she performed and recorded prolifically through the 50s, 60s and early 70s (becoming quite successful, among other things, by covering popular American/British songs in French). We will listen from 1-2pm to both her American and French recorded output.
Don't break your routine, break music instead. At 2p on Broken Music tune in for the entirety of a newly reissued cassette released originally in 1983 that finds Throbbing Gristle front man Genesis P-Orridge collaborating with then TG roadie Daniel Landin i.e. Stan Bingo. What's History, two long percussion-heavy pure weirdness/noise collage jams, was only available via a small stock of privately released tapes until last month when Brooklyn imprint Dais Records remastered and reissued these truly weird home recordings which actually were the first releases of P-Orridge's under his name.
Then at 10pm on the NSE, Atar S will bring us a two-hour dreamy house mix with some Ibiza lounge. She tells me this as if I know what that means, but I know I'll be listening!
On Monday at 9p, tune in for the Outside Track we have Peter Brotzmann & Jason Adasiewicz with the new release Going All Fancy on Eremite. Going All Fancy is an excellent set of duets from Ayler-esque German reed-man Brotzmann and Chicago based vibraphonist Adasiewicz. Adasiewicz alternates between Gamelan-style clanging and gentle, dreamy vibes atmospheres as a backdrop for Brotzmann's emotive improvisations.
Finally, Wednesday at 9 it's the Global Music Show. Pierce Freelon and DJ Apple Juice Kid will be on air talking about their Carolina to the Congo project: http://www.indiegogo.com/uncbeatmakinglab so tune in and check it out!
