Tune in to tonight's Thursday Night Feature on WXYC.org for some deep listening with Buddha Machines.

Buddha Machines are the product of Chinese music duo FM3. The Machines are simple electronic boxes roughly the size of a cigarette pack, each holding about ten loops that play indefinitely. In an age of MP3 abundance, people often call Buddha Machines the anti-iPod.

Buddha Machines themselves are inspired from "singing Buddha machines," similar devices often found in Buddhist monasteries that play back the repetitive chants of monks. FM3 hijacks these hypnotic devices with sounds of their own.

Tonight on the Thursday Night Feature on WXYC: It's the season for drum-roll drama of award shows and yes, we have our very own. Each year Pat J. takes on the much appreciated and mathematically rigorous task of compiling our best-of. Having prodding his fellow DJs to submit lists of their favorite releases from the previous year, he then uses a proprietary algorithm and some magic spit to prepares a master list and secrets the number one album with security appropriate for Egyptian relics. Tune in 9 pm to midnight tonight as he hits the airwaves along with representatives of WXYC's music department to spin the winners and countdown to the midnight revelation of 2011's best. On 89.3, Chapel Hill.
