WXYC has a lot of sick things in the works for this week. Take a peek:
On tonight’s Inside Track at 9pm, tune in to hear The Fifth of She by Tegucigalpan, for the debut cassette release for Carrboro local Clark Blomquist (Spider Bags, Waumiss, Kingsbury Manx). Side A (tracks 1-8) are a thrashy metal with anthemy riffs and distorted vox. Last 6 tracks step into a more electronically-oriented sound, sometimes dark and heavy techno, sometimes somber bedroom pop. Local special guests include Matt from MAKE, Eddie from Solar Halos and Love Language, Edaan and Brint from Earthly/Bonglestar Galactabong, DJ FiFi Hi-Fi, and WXYC DJ Dan P from Goat Thrower and Pine State. Carrboro, baby!!
Tonight's New Science Experience is coming at you live from our Twin Peaks inspired dance party at the Nightlight in downtown Chapel Hill. We are throwing a party to celebrate the end of the semester and departure of co-coordinator Beto! Expect extra-hype sets from Bridgey W, Marc T, Webb H, Alex Brown, DJ Candyboys and Beto T. Tune in from ten to midnight!
Join WXYC ride-or-die DJ Grubz at 1pm for this week's Hell or High Water, where he'll be featuring Professor Longhair's House Party New Orleans Style from the renowned Southern Folklife Collection at UNC Wilson Library.
And for Monday’s Outside Track, tune in at 9pm to hear a Technological Music Vol. 2 by DIY industrial/hardcore punk turned classical composer and oboist, Kyle Bruckmann. Citing influences from Western classical, free jazz, electronic and post-punk, this dude is like a WXYC dream come true. On this release, you'll find unedited improvisations by Bruckmann, featuring borrowed gear (including an oboe, English horn, heckelphone, mics and synths) to enhance the lack of predictability. He then takes those improvisations and heavily modulates and distorts them to make.... technological music.
