DEVENDRA BANHART, Oh Me Oh My... on the Inside Track, Wednesday 9 p.m.
The debut from this 21-year old singing and songwriting prodigy of sorts
is a quite moving one indeed. Banhart warbles his surreal wordplay with
a fingerpicked guitar as companion, reminiscent of such touched figures
as Skip Spence, Syd Barrett and Jandek in its flare for the intense and
personal. Out on Michael Gira's Young God imprint.
INCIDENTAL MUSIC OF THE SIXTIES on the Thursday Night Feature, Thursday
This week, we'll feature Lalo Schifrin, Dave Grusin, Quincy Jones
and more film and television mood music from the psychedelic era.
KIPPI KANINUS, Huggun on the Inside Track, Friday 9 p.m.
Kippi Kaninus is the doing of Icelandic electronicist Gudmundar Vignir
Karlsson, who like another knob-turning, one's and zero's pushing combo
from that northerly mass, Mum, applies the heightened musical awareness
of a classical background to the production of precious, melodic IDM
soudscapes. What's more, Karlsson captured most of the raw sound sources
for the album on contact mics placed in covert locations like the
insides of apples and pencil sharpeners! Out on collective/label
ROOSEVELT SYKES and ST. LOUIS JIMMY ODEN on Hell or High Water, Sunday
This week on Hell or High Water, tune in for some piano blues from
Roosevelt Sykes and St. Louis Jimmy Oden. Sykes, sometimes called
"Honeydripper," a name as raunchy as his songs, started playing his
unique brand of barrelhouse piano in the 1920's. He soon after teamed
up with vocalist and songwriter Oden, and the two recorded together
throughout the following decades. We'll hear solo recordings of these
two influential blues musicians as well as some of their
AMON DUUL II, Yeti on the Classic Inside Track, Sunday 2-3 p.m.
Amon Duul II started in 1969 as a fissure from the original Krautrock
collective of Amon Duul, who had started a year earlier as a musical
commune. The split was caused by arguments between members about the
seriousness of the band's music, and instead of kicking out band
members or arguing over the name, band leaders Chris Karrer and John
Weinzierl simply called themselves Amon Duul II. Amon Duul II stayed
together in various forms until the late 1970s, when Karrer and
Weinzierl split up to play with Popol Vuh and Embryo, respectively.
Their second release, "Yeti," is considered one of the classics of
early Krautrock, and features everything from folksy acoustic ballads
to ambient washes of noise accompanied by delicately strummed guitars.
Timely topics with BILL & TOM on Northern Hemisphere Live,
Sunday 5-7 pm.
This Sunday NHL's Bill Burton and Tom Horan will host an open show with
sundry topics relating to the current events of the day, with Orange-
Chatham County District Attorney Carl Fox on hand to field questions as
well. Listeners are invited to call in and participate.
EYES TO SPACE on the Backyard BBQ, Sunday 7-8 p.m.
Local rock gods Eyes to Space, of which our own DJ Zach Gresham is a
member, will be dropping by with their brand new CD. Always check our
website for last minute additions to the schedule:
Various Artists, THE NORTHWEST BATTLE OF THE BANDS VOLUME THREE: IM
WALKIN BABE! on the Inside Track, Monday 9 p.m.
In our hands is the third volume in a majestic series about rock 'n'
roll made in the upper left of our country during the '60s. This one
takes its subtitle from a killer cut rendered by punky teens called the
Unusuals, and except for a few diversions, it somehow only gets better
from there. You'll probably know the Sonics, and their contributions
are oh so good, but you'll love the rest all the same. Out on Sundazed
