This one goes out to all the Virgos in the house.
Tonight, tune in to everyone's favorite college radio station (102Jamz isn't a college station, is it?) for the Inside Track with "Sequatchie Valley," the new album from old-time fiddler and banjo player Joseph Decosimo, who recently relocated from Durham to East Tennessee. It's a thoroughly researched and beautifully rendered set of traditional tunes, most of which come from the Cumberland Plateau region - the Sequatchie Valley in particular - just north of Decosimo's hometown of Chattanooga.
Then, this Sunday on Broken Music, we explore recordings by Japanese composer and music critic Kuniharu Akiyama. Akiyama was a founding member of the Jikken-Koubou Experimental Workshop, producing musique concrete works for NHK radio, film, and puppet theater. Tune in at 2pm.
Tune in at 9pm for SportsRap. Why? Because it's Carolina football season. We're interviewing Larry Fedora's twitter live on air!
Then, Monday on the Outside Track, tune in for the new Spider-Webs' release Brighton Beach (on Wholly Other). The longstanding improvisational rock duo featuring Texan electric guitarists Tom Carter and Sandy Ewen. It's full of feedback-drenched sonic landscapes, similar to the more experimental side of Charalambides or the heavier side of Six Organs of Admittance.
