Welcome to rocktober, the month of every calendar year that WXYC plays nothing but AC/DC. Just kidding, that's every month.
Tonight (Friday) at 9pm on the Inside Track check out the Lijadu Sisters new release Afrobeat Soul Sisters on Soul Jazz records. The Lijadu Sisters are a Nigerian all-female afro-beat outfit who put out four fantastic LPs from 76-79 featuring the group's close harmonies and penchant for tight grooves and vamped out keyboards.
Sunday tune in at 2 to get broken on Broken Music with a brand new unveiling of previously unreleased material from British experimental electronic duo Monos comprised of longtime Nurse With Wood and Current 93 collaborator Colin Potter and Ora member/tape manipulator extraordinaire Darren Tate. Age and Transformation consists of minimal electroacoustic tracks originally recorded in 2004-5 but tweaked with by the duo until their release earlier this summer on Infraction Records.
Can't stop? Won't stop? The Backyard BBQ Sunday at 8pm is waiting for you. It is also waiting for next week's Yohimbe set, so expect to hear a track from them, and also some Torch Runner too. They are from Greensboro and are all over the place (genre-wise) and I mean that in the best way: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVh-l_Of4MI
You can't have local music without sports. On SportsRap at 9, the gang gets back to basics, by continuing to talk about football , including UNC's game with VaTech. The panel will also discuss the opening weekend of MLB playoffs. Plus, rap!
Keep on right there at 10pm for the NSE, where Donovan D is going to bring us lots of songs in a short amount of time. From electro to trap, the EDM will keep on coming.
On Monday's Outside Track at 9pm, get hype for the new Astral Social club release 'Magic Smile' on Wonderyou. Busy but very enjoyable new electronic chatter from UK experimenter Neil Campbell, this is the perfect balance of experimental churning and mesmerizing processed beats.
Wednesday is the second Wednesday of the month, so tune in at 9 for the Student Body President show, where the chief of staff is going to lead the way. Where is he going to lead us? Stay tuned.
